Thank you so much for the help!!

Default Basswood help?

Hello all~
I tried very hard to go through all the posts to see if I was duplicating a question.. but after page nine I lost it ..... I was wondering if anyone knows how to obtain the basswood at the right thickness and/or if anyone has tried it with their BS yet? I like to add different textures and thought the basswood would be perfect to create jewlery with our SU products.. any help would be appreciated!

Sorry Leigh Ann, I don't even know what basswood is, but hopefully someone here will be able to answer your question.

I used to get basswood at a miniature or craft shop. I don't know if Michaels or Jo Ann's carries it as I havn't looked for it lately.

What am I doing wrong??? I am using my big shot w/ the Labels 1 Nestabilities. It cuts fine, but when I go to emboss, I put in the SB embossing mat and then a clean (unmarked) clear plastic plate over it & run it through my BS (platform and clear plate on the bottom). I end up getting marks or creases on the center of the label.

HELP!

I'm not quite understanding what's wrong... Is your embossing pad transffering cut marks onto your cardstock?

Are you trying to emboss only or are you trying to emboss after cutting?

What stack are you using?

I am having some trouble with the soft mat sliding off the platform as I roll it through. That is when I am embossing.

If the mats are sliding around, it sounds like maybe you don't have your "sandwich" stacked properly. This is the stack I use when embossing nesties using the Big Shot (from bottom) and it works great:

Multi purpose platform, all tabs closed
nesties die, cut side up
cardstock
2 tan mats
3 cardstock shims
1 clear cutting mat

wow, that seems alot - here's my stacking list from bottom up...
multi purpose platform, all tabs closed
1 clear cm
nestie
cardstock
1 clear cm

If this doesn't show any embossing, run it through again with another sheet of cardstock over the nestie and cardstock (sandwiched in between the two acrylic cutting mats).

You don't use any soft mats for embossing? The sandwich you posted is the one I use for cutting nesties, not embossing them.

I think what she's trying to say is that there is enough pressure in her sandwich for cutting to give an emboss as well.

I also get slight embossing when cutting with my Nesties in the Big Shot so I very rarely use the embossing sandwich unless I'm only embossing onto a cardfront.

This is what I do for my Nesties to Cut and Emboss in one pass.
I took a sheet of SU Kraft Cardstock, Cut it to the size of my MPP and then ran it through my Xyron with the magnetic backing. I put that on top of my MPP and my Nesties on top when making my sandwich. I get a clean cut and emboss in one pass.

I get slight embossing too but I want deeper embossing so I use the tan mats. I have to say, though, I am not cheap in the least! LOL

I don't think I'd want to make my cutting stack any thicker though. I already have trouble getting it through as it is.

I will run it through with the tan mats a second time as well if I want a deeper impression as well but that usually isn't the case.

I love my crease pad for my embossing. It works really well and the sandwich is easier for me since it doesn't slip around like my silicone rubber or the tan SB mats do.

I just do from bottom to top

MPP
Cutting plate
Nestie blade up
Cardstock face down
Crease pad

Roll through big kick

When I want to emboss ONLY
MPP
Cutting plate
Nestie blade DOWN
Paper face down
1 cardstock shim (120lb weight)
Crease pad

I always make sure I have my cutting plate on the bottom for the embossing only sandwich so that my other plate doesn't get cut into

I get a really nice emboss with it. I also use the first sandwich to cut most of my Nesties, that way I don't have to switch out after I cut to emboss. But some of the Nesties don't cut as well with the crease pad (like Labels 1 and 2) so I simply roll it through first with the cutting plate, then roll it through again with the crease pad. Rather easy for me.

I have the blue crease pad.

I actually took my magnetic cartridge apart taking off the plastic away from the magnet part and attached the sticky side directly to the back of my cabinet door, makes great behind door storage.

You can also try buying a sheet of magnet from the craft store, I left the backing on and cut it down to the exact size of my platform. The nesties simply stay in place due to the magnet and it is the perfect (for my machine) depth to cut and emboss, the die doesn't slip!

Default Crease pad sandwich and magnetic placement pad ?

On the BigShot sandwich stack download here there is a column for "Spellbinders dies with "Magnetic placement pad"
Where do they sell the "magnetic placement pad ? Are they sold by Spellbinders or Sizzix?

Second question is on the Download sheet for using the "Premium Crease Pad" the illustrations on the bottom shows a stack picture with " Originals or Bigz die shim" Is this what they mean by "clear shim" in the sentence on the bottom ? Where are these sold?
Aha -I'm new to all of this

Thanks
Barbara

The Magnetic Placement Pad is sold by Spellbinders. If they don't have them at the website you could try a google search.
Another option would be to take Cardstock cut to the size of your Multipurpose Platform and run it through a Xyron with a magnetic cartridge and use that instead.

The Premium Crease pad comes with 2 Acrylic "shim" sheets. These are what are used in the sandwich pictured in the file.

Alicia - Xyron has a magnetic cartridge for the machines? Really?

Uh oh. Now I think I just might need a Xyron and I never needed one before - but that. Yeah. I just might have to get a Xyron.

Thanks for enabling me

When I read your question I immediately thought of Balsa wood. I found some at hobby lobby where they sell pieces of wood in various lengths. I bought a 4 x 36 inch piece of balsa wood which is about 1/16 of an inch. It works perfectly in the Big Shot. It stains and paints well. I used the SU Big Notz die and it looks great. Trying to find my Sizzix die cut fence - should be perfect for a garden theme. A little late but I hope this helps.

Wow so it is thin enough you can cut stuff out with it - and stain it or paint it? How awesome is that! About how much does a piece of balsa wood run? The nesties wont cut it though, will they? Just the steel rule dies?

I never even thought of using my Big Kick to cut wood until it was mentioned here. That along with the Top Note could make some beautiful plaques.

Yes
Here's your sandwich
Multipurpose Platform Tab 2
Cutting Pad
Die blade side up
Cardstock
Cutting Pad
Roll through big Shot

See the very first post in this thread. Sandwich list is on the bottom of the post.

Also clearly marked on your multipurpose platform.

Tab 2 is for wafer thin dies like Quickutz, Spellbinders and Cuttlekids etc.

Hugs and Blessings

I never even thought of using my Big Kick to cut wood until it was mentioned here. That along with the Top Note could make some beautiful plaques.
The balsa wood is really cool. My biggest problem was trying to find a place to store my very flexible 4" x 36" piece until I use it. LOL! I did try to use a stylus and try to etch my initials in it. Thought it would be cute for Valentine's day to cut it out in a tree shape and carve a heart with our initials in it. It's a bit too soft for that. I haven't tried stamping on it yet. Was in a time crunch so later today I'm going to try it. I'm thinking if you don't have the right ink it may bleed. Going to do some testing today and I'll let you know the results. It cost me $2.77 for this piece. (if you use a 40% off coupon its even better). I'm thinking I'll have to go get another piece so I can test on this one. I just may try it on a nestie . Remember there are different thicknesses of balsa wood. Mine was quite flexible. I once read that you can use anything that is not thicker than a nickel in your big dies and this is the exact width of a nickel. So take a nickel with you when you go out to buy it. I'll let you know my test results.
