Karen N here! I’m happy to be introducing a brand new product that Cut@Home is carrying – the Sizzix Precision Base Plate. This plate was announced at CHA and is so super cool. It makes cutting intricate dies with the Big Shot really easy. It is used instead of one of the cutting plates in the Big Shot cutting ‘sandwich’. This video showing you some of the results I achieved with it!
The next card also uses paper from Graphic 45 Mother Goose 6×6 patterns and solids. This time the stamps are from Taylored Expressions Max & Muffin. This set comes with dies to cut those cats (which also cut perfectly with the Sizzix Precision Base Plate).
Aren’t those cats adorable?! <3 On that card, I decided to also add a Spellbinders Medallion One. I usually cut this particular die by running it through a couple times with a paper or two as a shim. I did not need to with the FABULOUS Sizzix Precision Base Plate. Before I show you my final card, I wanted to show you a side-by-side comparison that I cut with Spellbinders Medallion Five.
The medallion on the left was run once with regular cutting plates. The medallion on the right was run once with the Sizzix Precision Base Plate. Wow! As I had mentioned in my video, I could still cut this with regular base plates by running it a few times with a paper shim. The new plate just makes things SO much easier!
My final card features paper from Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower. The die is Spellbinders D-Lite Flutters. This is the most intricate die I own, and I did have to run it through the Big Shot twice….but again, not many times and no paper shim.
On this card, the background is three small 1.25″ x 5″ strips that I taped to a piece of scratch paper and ran through the Big Shot with Sizzix Textured Impressions Yuletide. Love the extra dimension on this card and how I was able to use scraps. (Saw it on Pinterest!!)
I’d definitely recommend the Sizzix Precision Base Plate for all your Big Shot die cutting needs! Great product.
