Big Shot Project and Plate “Sandwich” Tips

Die-Cut

Hey Stampers! Do you ever get frustrated when using your Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine? Maybe you've got a great project to make but you're not sure how to make your “sandwich” to get all the plates and platforms to perform correctly? Well, you're in the right place today! I've got a simple die-cut project to share AND a PDF to give you some tips for making your “sandwich” easier!

Big Shot Project and Plate "Sandwich" Tips

This card uses Abstract Impressions Designer Series Paper as the focal point, and a few Basic Pearl Jewels for some “pop”. When using an intricate die like this one, you'll want to use a Precision Cutting Plate and have a Big Shot Die Brush standing by to help you remove any stubborn little pieces that didn't fall out. If you don't yet own the die brush, here's a little “secret” I use time and time again and I KNOW you have one of these in your home.

Big Shot Project and Plate "Sandwich" Tips

Yep, a plain  old dryer sheet. If you'll rub a brand new sheet on the back of your thinlit or framelit die BEFORE running your paper through the Big Shot, the pieces will just fall out beautifully…try it!

Here's the “sandwich” tip sheet. Print it out and keep with your Big Shot for easy reference.

Enabler Alert!

Announcements/ Die-Cut/ Product Information

BSDieBrush

This little tool will totally change the way you look at your intricate Big Shot Dies. You know, the ones that have all those teeny, tiny little pieces that stay in the die once you've rolled your paper through your Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.

This amazing new tool from the Stampin’ Up! Handmade From the Heart Occasions Catalog 2016, is something you will definitely want to own. Here's how it works:

Cut out your paper with your framelits/thinlits die using the Big Shot as you normally would. Lay the cut paper, with the die still embedded in it, on the foam pad, with the die side up. Run the brush several times over the die’s surface. When you pick up your piece, the die will peel easily off and all the small bits of paper will fall right out. No more poking with your paper piercing tool or using waxed paper!

One TIP: Use gentle pressure when rolling the brush. You may have to run it over the die several times, but with the lighter touch you're less likely to poke through thin paper and ruin your piece.
