Using nesties in the Big Shot

Post by Guest on Wed 7 Jul 2010 - 21:25

Help please!

I have bought a set of Nesties and am deperately trying to get them to work in my Big Shot. I have just about managed to cut but can't remember what I did!

I have the white big shot spacer (that came with the blue big shot), 2 acrylic cutting mats, 2 black embossing mats and a tan embossing mat.

I want to cut and emboss with them please.

On the card that comes with the nesties --

For cutting
Large platform down first with tabs closed
Place die face up (ridges or bumpy side up)
Place card on die
Place two Big Shot acrylic mats on top of card
Roll through Big Shot.

Just realised you said emboss as well.

After cutting remove acrylic mats from card and die.
Leave the die in place with paper die cut out still in
the die on the multi purpose platform.
Place TWO tan embossing mats on top of die.
With one piece of 12 x 6 card stock, tri-fold for a shim
and place on top of tan mats.
Place one Big Shot acrylic plate on top and run through BS.

Hope this makes sense Helen - I use them in Cuttlebug and they
are different. If you have just bought dies, look on packaging -
there are instructions if they are new.

Try looking on 'you tube' for demos as well Helen, there are loads of them for all the cutting machines.

Thanks Steph but I don't have the multi purpose platform.

Thanks Di, I'll have a look later.

Well I never used the info on the back cos my big shot is the older blue one. but this is what I do and it works every time.

If you can manage to get a wizard white adapter plate this works too.

Without adapter plate you need to use some card for shims. This is how mine is layered up.


Large white base plate
3 or 4 A5 card shims (you can remove one at a time if too thick)
Clear Acrylic plate
Die
Paper/card
Clear Acrylic plate.

This works every time. I find that if I want to cut thicker card I take one shim out.

For embossing
Large white base plate
1 or 2 A5 card shims (you can remove one at a time if too thick)
Clear Acrylic plate
Die
Paper/card
Tan Mat
Clear Acrylic plate.

I don't tend to use the white adapter for embossing cos it makes it too thick.

Hope that helps.
