With the present economy I look around my craft area for viable replacements, and use them when possible.
This is from my Big Shot FAQ thread on the "other side" The link is in my siggy line

Big Shot white platform (not the multi-purpose one)
Spellbinders white spacer plate
nesties die
2 Big Shot acryllic cutting pads

To emboss, I use:

Big Shot white platform
Big Shot acrylic cutting pad
nesties die
Spellbinders tan embossing mat
Big Shot acrylic cutting pad

They turn out beautifully every time! Hope this can work for you.
Hugs and Blessings
