Extra tips for the handle 

Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine

In the video, I share how to attach the handle. Also, where I store the L Wrench under the machine so if ever I need to tighten the handle again I can found the tool easy. One thing that  I didn’t do is placing the rubber cover on the handle so I have the picture above.

Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Extra Tools 

The list that I am sharing are extra tools available to use with the standard machine. You DO not need any of the extra tools to start using your machine these are extra for special dies and projects. The machine comes with all the basic tools that you need to cut and emboss.  

  • Magnetic Cutting Plate: Thin, fully magnetic sheet with self-healing cutting surface. Magnetic Cutting Plate (Plate 5) holds dies securely in place, even nested dies. This slim, portable sheet replaces a Cutting Plate in your sandwich, making it even easier to take with you. Use with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. #149656

  • Impression Mats: Your favorite dies can do more when paired with the Impression Mats. Use with dies that have decorative ejection holes for detailed embossing. Or use with cutting dies to emboss instead of cut. Includes 1 thick Impression Mat and 1 thin Impression Mat. Use with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Specialty Plate (Plate 4). *Not available yet date to be determined

    Note: this plate can be used interchangeably with the 3D Embossing Folder Plate.

Stay tune in a week I will have a tip video. 

Q&A: ALL ABOUT THE STAMPIN’ CUT & EMBOSS LINE

Here the Question and Answer that Stampin’Up! shared with us. I added some of my personal experiences in RED
 
Q. Are the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines comparable to other machines on the market?
A. Yes, they are fantastic machines! Due to our machines’ solid steel construction frame, the tightness and effectiveness of the cutting and embossing will remain intact over time. The precise pressure designed and engineered into the machines also results in crisp, clean, and precise cutting along with beautifully detailed embossing. The new machines have small footprints, ergonomic carrying handles, easy rotating handles for comfort in use, and strategically designed platforms for superior control. They also include simple visuals and training for a rapid learning curve. The best part is that all this value is offered at a great price!

 
Q. Are these machines only available through Stampin’ Up!?
A. Yes. There are times that we partner with companies who already offer crafting tools and we rebrand them for Stampin’ Up! This is not the case with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machines. They’re exclusive to Stampin’ Up! which means the only place you or your customers can buy them is through us!

 
Q. Do the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines have a warranty?
A. The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine each have a three-year limited warranty. To prevent damage to the machines, use as directed and use only with compatible Stampin’ Up! products. 

 
Q. Do I need to buy plates before I can use my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine?
A. No. The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines come with the plates you need to get started. The machines include these plates:
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine: 1 Base Plate (Plate 1), 1 Die Plate (Plate 2), 2 Cutting Plates (Plate 3), 1 Specialty Plate (Plate 4) 
  • Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine: 1 Mini Base Plate (Plate 1), 2 Mini Cutting Plates (Plate 2), 1 Mini Embossing Plate (Plate 3), 1 Mini 3D Embossing Plate (Plate 4)

This is what you need for basic die cutting and embossing. Optional plates are sold separately for specialty die cutting and embossing. You can buy replacements for all plates.
On the plates and basic platform you have all the graphic to what plate you need to use, this is the most friendly machine I saw. 

Q. How do I assemble the handle that comes with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine?
A. It’s simple–it just takes one screw. Assembly and use instructions are included with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. The Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine comes with the handle preassembled. 
So simple it comes with the little tool and one screw and attach the handle. 

 
Q. How do I create the sandwich for the machines?

A. The Base Plate and Die Plate for the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine include instructions on how to use and sandwich all plates that are included with the machine. The Mini Base Plate, Mini Embossing Plate, and Mini 3D Embossing Plate for the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine include instructions on how to use and sandwich all plates that are included with the machine. Plates that are sold separately come with their own instructions. You can also find instruction at stampinup.com/cut&emboss. All graphics and plates are number super friendly to use. 

Here are a few of the basics:

  • The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine each use a different sandwich. The plates and plate order are not interchangeable. Be sure to reference instructions until you are familiar and confident.
  • Each plate has a number printed on it. When you build the sandwich, assemble the plates in the order shown in the sandwich diagram for the dies or embossing folders, for each applicable machine.
  • Colors of similar plates are the same, even though the numbers are not. For example, the Cutting Plates for the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and the Mini Cutting Plates for the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine are the same color. The Specialty Plate and the Mini 3D Embossing Plate (both used to emboss with 3D folders) are the same color.
  • Sandwich diagrams for the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine are on the plates that come with the machine or inserts for the Magnetic Cutting Plate and Impression Mats. Sandwich diagrams for the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine are on the plates that come with the machine or insert for the Mini Magnetic Cutting Plate.

Q. How are the Magnetic Cutting Plates used?
A. Use the thin, fully Magnetic Cutting Plate in place of your standard Cutting Plate when you want to hold dies securely in place. 

 
Q. What are the Impression Mats used for?
A. Use Impression Mats to add more embossed texture to your crafting. Depending on the die, you can cut and emboss or you can use dies for embossing. Use with dies that have decorative ejection holes for additional embossing or use with cutting dies to emboss instead of cut.

 
Q. Can I use the plates from the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine in the standard Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine?
A. No. The plates are designed to work with the machines they correspond to and not each other.

 
Q. Can I use the plates designed for the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine in other die-cutting machines?
A. No. We do not recommend using Stampin’ Cut & Emboss plates in other machines. We designed our plates specifically for our machines, and we have not tested them to work with other machines.
I try this in the old machine and it fit. If you chose to use the new plates in your old machine DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. 

 
Q. I already have accessories (cutting plates, platforms, mats, or pads) for a different die-cutting machine. Can I use them with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines?
A. No. Because Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines come with all the plates you need to get started, you don’t need to use accessories from other machines. Our plates are the correct thickness to work with the gap (distance between the rollers) in our machine so you get the best results with the least effort.
Even if it fit I do NOT recommend using them in your new machine that could void your warranty. 

Plates designed for non-Stampin’ Up! machines will likely be the wrong thickness. If they are too thick, they’ll make the sandwich too high, which could damage the machine. If they are too thin, you’ll need to use shims or run dies through the machine several times to get good results. 

To prevent damage to the machines, use the plates that are included with or designed to work with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines. (Compatible products will state that they can be used with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines in the product description in the catalog and online store.)

 
 
Q. Can I use dies and embossing folders from other manufacturers in the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines?
A. Yes, but due to differences in product thickness, you might need to use a shim to adjust the sandwich height. However, if the sandwich is too high, don’t force it through the machine—this could damage the machine and void the warranty. I try a different one and some retired one and YES it wok. If you choose to do it again do it at your own risk. 

 
Q. Can I use Stampin’ Cut & Emboss dies and embossing folders with other die-cutting and embossing machines?
A. Yes. You can use Stampin’ Cut & Emboss dies and embossing folders with most die-cutting and embossing machines. Use the sandwich recommended by the machine’s manufacturer. Because of variances in machines or products, you might need to use a shim.

 
Q. What is the life expectancy on the Cutting Plates and the Magnetic Cutting Plates?

A. Lifespans on these plates vary based on user behavior. Cutting Plates naturally become bowed and scratched over time. Replace them when they no longer give you the results you want, such as if the dies stop cutting cleanly or if the plates leave marks on the paper.

To extend the life of Cutting Plates: 

  • Flip the plates so each side gets equal use.
  • Place dies in different spots on the plate—don’t always place them in the same spot.

To extend the life of the Magnetic Cutting Plate:

  • Place dies in different spots on the plate – don’t always place them in the same spot.

 

Q. Which dies and embossing folders will work with the mini machine?

A. Dies and embossing folders that are compatible with the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine are indicated in the product description in our catalogs and online store. Keep in mind that we are indicating which dies and embossing folders are 100% compatible based on their sizes. Many dies that aren’t noted as compatible with the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine do include smaller pieces that will work with the mini machine. 
Also if you download the product labels that are available with my customer appreciation, all labels as an *M that indicates that it fits in the mini machine. 

 
Q. Cutting plates that come with the machines are labeled with a number and are color coded for easy use when building your sandwich. Will replacement Cutting Plates that I purchase separately include the same labeling and coloring?
A. After our current Cutting Plate inventory is depleted, all Cutting Plates will come with the same labeling and coloring.

 
Q. Will Stampin’ Up! sell bags to carry the machines?
A. Not at this time.
