Default Magnetic base plate

I just watched a video by Scrapbooking made Simple (#197) and Stacy showed cutting an intricute die using the following sandwich:

Magnetic base plate
paper
die Cutting side down
red cutting plate


I thought you always have the cutting side of a die facing a cutting plate. Wouldn't letting the dies cut into the magnetic plate be bad for both the die and the plate? Or have I been doing it wrong all this time? Oh and the machine she used was the Big Shot.
Here is a link to that video and the question I have is shown at 23:52


Hope someone can clear this up for me.

I use a cutting plate on top of my magnetic plate. The only thing I don't like is sometimes I have to move the paper around as the entire plate must not be magnetic and my die "moves" to the closest magnet. I use it all the time.

And that is how I thought it was suppose to be used but she does not put a cutting plate on top of the magnetic base. I would think this would ruin the base with cut marks.

I watched this carefully and she is not placing the die directly on the magnetic base plate. Look again - there's a clear cutting pad on top of the magnetic platform. You are right, you would never want to place a die face down directly on a platform, magnetic or no.

HTH!

At 26:00 you can see that she actually does have a cutting plate on top of the base. If you look closely you can see it isn't quite squared up with the base and after she puts the die on she squares it back up. Also, when she first puts the base plate on the Big Shot she quickly flips it and you can see a shine on top. She should have been much clearer on that though as I'm sure many are going to ruin their magnetic base plate.

I have a standard cutting platform, and have actually never seen the magnetic one IRL, but it says right on the top of mine THIS IS NOT A CUTTING SURFACE. I assume the magnetic one must say that as well.

If so, hopefully people will notice it. Although to me it always seemed pretty obvious that you wouldn't want to put a die directly down on top of any multipurpose platform.

She definitely has a clear plate down. If you look, you can see a piece of pink post it note on it. She probably puts that on so she can tell she has the clear plate down.

After reviewing the video and enlarging the screen you are right....there is a cutting plate on the magnetic one. Must have been too early in the morning for me to notice. LOL Thanks for everyone clearing this up for me though.
