Stampin’ Up! Announces the Big Shot

Stampin' Up! just announced that they will be offering the Sizzix Big Shot ($99.95) and exclusive Stampin' Up! dies (prices vary) for customers beginning September 2.  This powerful gizmo (and 6-time winner of Creating Keepsakes Reader's Choice Award) manually die cuts, embosses, cuts through card stock, Stampin' Up!'s designer series paper, plastic, chipboard and fabric (think pillow appliqu?s, quilting and clothing d?cor) and even pops out boxes and scalloped envelope templates with perfect fold (scored) lines in place (using the crease pad).  Tr?s cool!

There are special dies called Bigz that can cut through up to 8 layers of card stock (think of the time savings for mass producing invitations, gifts).  Most importantly for those of us who already have a die cut machine (mine is my trusty Cuttlebug), it works with most other dies and embossing folders, including Cuttlebug's versions–and my beloved Nestabilities.  Stay tuned for more details, sneak peek pictures and ideas.  The machine, exclusive die cuts (plus an offering of specially selected Sizzix dies) are making my heart go pitter pat and will all be available to order on-line through me on September 2 🙂

Hugs and Pretties . . .  Mary


  1. Browsing after placing my order… this card is so neat, LOVE the gray and groovy guavy together!… (hope I’ve put this comment at the right place, I wasn’t sure if you go above or below).

    Yeah! I have a big shot! More $ for the dies…Can’t wait to see all the creative ideas flowing from SU and demos for using this great machine. BTW…super simple to use, but does not fold up like CB. I use mine enough it has a permanent residence on my work table.

  3. Hi Mary
    This sounds exciting. I have the Wizard and I’m hoping the SU dies can be used in my machine?! Keeping my fingers crossed, unless you know anything more…..

  4. Mary, will the dies be compatible with the regular Sizzix?


  5. Wow, life just keeps getting better! Thanks Mary, for keeping our tails waggin!
