BIG Shot – What Can I CUT with it?

Thats what I wanted to know too! As Im a very traditional girl I cut cardstock BUT Stampin’ Up! gave me this fab list of other stuff I can cut too so I can get maximum use out of my new BIG Shot. According to Stampin’ Up! the Big Shot works with ALL competitive dies, and the steel rule dies can cut through an impressive list of 50 different materials, including fabric, foil, and chipboard.

So which ones are Steel Ruled?

  • Originals, Bigz, and Bigz XL dies. These steel ruled dies cut through virtually any material and multiple sheets of card stock and Designer Series paper.
  • Sizzlets dies. These dies are small and detailed, often creating scored or perforated details. These dies cut through thin materials, and multiple sheets are not recommended.

The following materials work well when creating die cuts with the Big Shot machine and Bigz and Originals dies. Please note the maximum thickness of several materials.
