  • Die Cutting Machines

    Hi everyone

    I am new to the forum and would like to know what other dies I can use with my Big Shot and what other equipment I will need to use them. I would also like to know if I can use brass embossing stencils with the Big Shot?

    Hello and !

    I have a red Sizzix machine which I think is similar to the Big Shot. I use all the Sizzix dies including the thin red Sizzlets and also the thin green Ellison ones but I have a convertor (big thick magnet type thing) which lets me use the thinner ones. I also use cuttlebug (also with the convertor) and quickutz (need also an adaptor as these are really thin dies but give really good cuts!).

    I use embossing dies too (again with the convertor) and I think I can use wooden dies as long as they are not too thick.

    I don't know if this helps or not, but if you go into a craft shop which sells various dies, have a look on the back of the packet to see if its compatable with the Big Shot. Or you can sometimes tell by looking at how thick the die is.

    Good luck!
