Tuesday Tool - Stampin' Up Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

Good Morning Everyone! I apologize for no post on yesterday. On Friday, I either touched something or was bitten by something that caused me to go into anaphylactic shock. It was very scary and of course I had to have medicine. It's taken a few days to recover, but I'm doing better now and I will show you Monday's project next week. Today's Tuesday Tool is one of my favorite machines, the Big Shot!  With the Big Shot you can create die cuts with exclusive Stampin' Up Dies or Dies made specifically for this machine. This is perfect for card making, scrapbooking or any papercrafting project. The Big Shot includes standard cutting pads and a multipurpose platform so you can start cutting immediately.

When using Bigz or Originals dies that have score marks, perforations, or lots of details, we recommend that you cut just one piece of paper at a time. Use the Premium Crease Pad with dies that have score marks for best results.

Steel-ruled dies have sharp edges—handle with care.

When cutting intricately-detailed images, paper (or other material) may become caught in the die. Remove carefully to prevent ripping.

Not all materials will work well with some designs. Experiment a bit with your dies and materials to make sure you get the cutting results you want.
