Just over a year ago, I splashed out and bought a Big Shot Pro, thinking it would solve all my problems regarding dies that wouldn't cut. Not surprisingly, it didn't, but then, dies are getting more and more intricate. Among the most intricate I've got is the fancy lattice die from Spellbinders. It's one of those dies that's supposed to be infinitely 'stretchable', but I'd never had the patience to go for more than a single cut of it because it took so much shimming and so many passes through the machine. This week, I finally got my hands on some Spray Emboss from Once Upon a Stamp and I tried it. Does it now cut in a single pass? No. But! I didn't use any extra shimming, and it cut completely in three 'double' passes through my machine. (The position of my BSP means I prefer to load and unload from one side only.) I then lined it up and cut a partial section alongside, and this time it cut completely in two double passes. This is such an improvement, I'll have to try it out with my other 'hard to cut' dies. I have a suspicion that the product is just a dilute soapy solution, but it does seem to work well. And the result?
I hope you can join us this time.
