Use the stippling tool to create small dot patterns for a show stopping look!  Use with foils and metals, or even on paper!

Fine Embossing/Wide Embossing
The fine embossing tool is designed to create a finer channel for a unique embossed look.  It will add subtle, yet distinct marks on your projects.

The wide embossing tool will create a wider embossed channel for a broader embossed look.

  1. When I purchased my Curio, I did not and pretty much still do not have any experience with any die cutting machines….I am blown away by how little instruction comes with the machine. The first version of software I managed to learn my way thru for a couple of simple projects…And then I down loaded the updated software… I pretty much had to relearn everything as the screens were so different. Oh there are lots of tutorials out there…thousands of them(most using the previous version of software), but they all seem to target those who have had previous experience with Silhouettes. To me there are obvious gaps and leaps of faith. Do this and then this and then send to your Curio…with out addressing the Platforms needed or the cutting tool instructions or WHY would you choose to use the Simple, Line or Fill tabs above….what do these things mean. Oh yes they do have tutorials under the Help function, but they are so small they are difficult to read.
    Is there anywhere at all that one can learn from beginning to end that addresses all these steps in a step by step bases comprehensive, logical and readable….dying to know!!

    1. Hi Lorna,
      I don’t know of any step-by-step guide for the Curio at all. The best resource I know for the Curio is YouTube unfortunately.

      I’m sorry I can’t be of more help in this.

  2. Why can’t I make rhinestone items with this? And if I can where do I find it?

    1. Hi Heather,
      The stippling tool should not need to be cleaned out. It is just a metal spike sticking out the bottom of the tool so there isn’t anything that can get caught up inside like the blade. If you’re finding it to be dirty, you could clean it with an alcohol wipe and that should take care of any dirt or residue.

      Thank you

  3. I received one for Christmas. I am disappointed that you don’t get all the mats etc in your original purchase. I note that you mention a Premium and deep cut blade neither of these are included in your original purchase you only get the normal cutting blade that you get with the Silhouette Cameo. Still practicing like so far but original packaging I found very lacking.

    1. Hi Lynette- the different kinds of blades are sold separately, which I think is a good thing when you think about it. You might not need the deep cut blade, though the Premium blade would be nice to have right off the bat. I think they try to give you the basics to get going with and then you can always pick up the extras once you get an idea of what you’d like to do.

  5. I make signs for a living so this would open up some new possibilities for my shop! I also would love to use it to help out with my daughter’s kindergarten class projects.
