Fun with new Quickutz dies

I've been loving my Big Shot and the fact that it can use any non-commercial die, texture plate, or embossing folder out there! The latest additions to my craft space are some of the new dies for the Quickutz Revolution. All this means is that the dies are bigger, about 4 inches by 4 inches. They easily fit through the Big Shot. This first card was made using the limited release dragonfly die, which comes with a butterfly shape. I also used the Quickutz nesting flowers dies. This is a standard A2 size card. The larger scalloped die cut was made using the biggest die. The reddish cardstock is Basic Grey, the background is from the DCWV Luxury stack which I embossed with the Cuttlebug D'vine embossing folder, and the sentiment by Serendipity.

Quickutz also came out with some big embossing dies with sentiments. Again, these are sized for the Revolution, so they're 4 X 4. I had to tinker a little to use these in my Big Shot. I used textured cardstock inside the die, which was about the thickness of two of the wafer thin dies stacked. I couldn't put the sandwich through using Tab 1 of my multipurpose platform, and Tab 2 didn't give enough of an impression. I pulled out the impressions plate from the Big Impressions kit. This plate is slightly thicker than the clear cutting plate, so I used it as my top plate and ran the combo through. It worked! Here's how it turned out.

These were essentially all scraps that I had sitting on my table. I think it worked though!


  1. These cards are quite nice. I don't have the Big Shot, but I have the Cuttlebug and I use the Quickutz dies in there. I just purchased several of the new Quickutz Revolution dies, including one of the embossing dies. Should be lots of fun.

  2. I love the color of this card. That ribbon is the perfect touch.
