Default SU Movers and Shapers die Question

I have the holiday dies but not the magnetic platform. Is there a way to use them in the big shot machine without the magnetic platform? Just using the normal plates?

Thanks.
Amy

Did you get the dies from the current holiday catalogue? I did not see and movers and shapers dies in it. It would be easier to answer if I knew specifically which dies you have. If they are truly movers and shapers, then you at least need the magnetic base plate to use them. This is different from the magnetic platform which is too thick for movers and shapers. If the dies you speak of are wafer thin ones, then you can use them with the regular non-magnetic platform and plates.

You'll need the magnetic base plate or another bigger Movers and Shapers die that has the hole big enough to fit the smaller dies in it. Like the big card base die that the 3D dress form fits in from the SU! catalog. That one should have a space big enough to use the SU! holiday movers and shapers. It's probably just cheaper to use a 40% off coupon to Hobby Lobby or Michael's and get the Tim Holtz magnetic base plate. I use mine to store the little dies in.

If you only want to cut the shapes (for example, to have just a die cut ornament or a die cut dove), it is possible to do that without the magnetic platform or the magnetic base plate. You just have to figure out how much of a sandwich to create in order to get the right thickness to cut properly.

Earlier this evening, I used my Big Kick to cut an ornament from canvas. From the bottom up, the sandwich I used was:
clear cutting plate
black rubber mat
die, face up
canvas
two more clear cutting plates
