Sharing is caring!

I’m really excited to be here today with an introduction to the Stampin Cut And Emboss Machine from Stampin Up. I’ve been holding off on talking much about die cutting and embossing lately because I’ve been (not so) patiently waiting to get my hands on this machine! We have a lot to cover today, so let’s get started!

Join in for this introduction to the Stampin Cut And Emboss Machine From Stampin Up, and learn about features, benefits, and performance of this amazing machine!

Video Overview

Feel free to watch along as I show and explain this amazing machine, or keep reading for more info!

Let’s first discuss what this machine is and what it can do.

What It Is

The Stampin Cut and Emboss Machine is a die cutting and embossing machine that allows you to take your crafting experience to an entirely new level. It uses a crank and rollers to feed plates through the machine. By adding metal dies or plastic embossing folders to the plates along with paper, you can create beatiful elements to add to your papercraft projects.

Let’s talk a little more about die cutting and embossing.

Uses Explained

One of the main uses of this machine is cutting. Die cutting involves the use of thin metal dies which are used to cut paper into basic or intricate shapes. Newer style dies have the benefit of adding dots or stitching, which is an added bonus to the cut shape.

The second main use of the machine is to emboss paper. Embossing is a way to create raised patterns of texture. In this case we are talking about dry embossing, not heat embossing which is a different technique.

By inserting a piece of paper into the center of an embossing folder and running it through the machine, it will raise certain portions of the paper.

Die cutting and embossing take basic crafting, and make it look professional. You’ll never go back once you start using these techniques on your craft projects.

We will continue on with our introduction to the Stampin Cut And Emboss machine by explaining how to it!

How To Use It

To use the machine, you will ‘build a sandwich’ of plates and dies (or embossing folders) to crank through the machine along with your paper. Here you can see that the base plate includes the diagrams along with which numbered plates to use. The top section explains die cutting, while the lower diagrams are for embossing.

For die cutting, you need plates 1, 2, and both 3’s. Your paper and dies go on top of the first plate 3, and the other 3 plate goes on top of them. Remember to always use your plates this way to prevent them from warping.

For embossing with standard (thin) folders, you need plate 1 and both 3 plates. The embossing folder and paper go between the 3s.

For 3D embossing folders, you need plate 1, then your folder with paper inside, then plate 4.

Align the plates so they are all directly on top of one another, set them on the platform of the machine, push them into the opening, then begin cranking. Once you start to crank, let go of the plates and secure the machine with your other hand on the top handle.

It’s that easy. After you use it a few times, you’ll catch on and not need the diagrams anymore. Remember, you can watch along as I show exactly how to do this in the video at the top of this page.

Let’s keep moving with this introduction to the Stampin Cut And Emboss Machine by talking about features and benefits.

Features and Benefits

Plates Are Included And Numbered

All of the plates needed for cutting and embossing are included with purchase of the machine. In addition, they are all numbered for an intuitive experience. The plates include diagrams showing you exactly which plates to use depending on whether you are die cutting or embossing.

Fold Up Sides

The sides of this machine fold up when not in use. This is a huge benefit, because it allows the machine to take up a smaller space on your craft table, and also make it easy to travel with. Just carry it with the ergonomic handle or put it in a tote bag and go!

Wide Inner Clearance

When the plates pass through the inside of the machine, there is a nice sized gap between the sides of the plates and the machine itself. This means that if you don’t line up your plates exactly, there is extra room on each side to allow everything to pass through cleanly.

Am I the only one who has damaged an embossing folder because it was sticking out the edge?

Anti-Skid Feet

Four large anti-skid feet will keep this baby in place on your craft surface. If you find it to be sliding around, just wipe the feet with a damp rag and let them dry. They’ll be perfectly grippy again!

Solid Steel Construction

Solid steel construction means that your machine is well-built, durable, and the parts won’t change over time. Years from now, it will be working just the same as it is on Day 1.

Beautiful Appearance

This machine is beautiful. It has a sleek appearance with white, gray, and silver accents. I love the metal Stampin Up plate and how it looks when folded closed. Gorgeous!

Performance

As wonderful as the other aspects of this machine are, the single most important is how it performs. Join me in the next section as I share how I put it to the test.

Put To The Test

Because of the rumors that this machine would give a perfect cut and emboss on my first try, I broke out some ‘problem children’ dies and embossing folders that had given me fits in the past. I’ll detail this more later this week, but basically, the results are that the machine nailed it. I had perfect results with minimal effort, even with the dies and embossing folders that had performed poorly in the past.
