Beyond card stock and chipboard

At camp last Sunday one of our stampers brought a card that had a panel of heavy-duty foil that had been used with the Texturz Plates.  It was fabulous, and that idea went directly on my “must do” list, along with the Wood Sheets that can also be used with the Big Shot.

I figure it’s time to revisit the list of materials that can be used in the Big Shot.  From the Stampin’ Up! site:

The following materials work well when creating die cuts with the Big Shot machine and Bigz and Originals dies. Please note the maximum thickness of several materials. As a rule of thumb, you can cut a material with your Big Shot machine and Bigz or Originals dies if you can cut it using your Craft & Paper Scissors.

  • Thick corkboard
  • Thick chipboard (59 mil)
  • Colored magnet
  • Ruffle board
  • Paper wood
