Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine

Our Stampin’ Cut & Emboss and Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines offer multiple die-cutting and embossing options for you, from beginners to seasoned crafters. Both of our Stampin’ Up!-exclusive machines offer the highest quality and make precise cuts and detailed embossed images every time. They’re also simple to store and easily portable, which makes packing for your events a cinch! They come with all the tools needed to get started right away, making it easy for you to have a fantastic die-cutting and embossing experience from the start.


So what sets our machines apart from the rest? Here are some of my favorite features:

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
This machine has a wide 6″ (15.2 cm) platform that works with all Stampin’ Up! dies and embossing folders. Includes 1 Base Plate (Plate 1), 1 Die Plate (Plate 2), 2 Cutting Plates (Plate 3), and 1 Specialty Plate (Plate 4).

  • Durable machines with high-quality results. The solid steel construction frame and rubber feet that securely grip the work surface produce crisp, clean, precise cutting and beautifully detailed embossing.
  • Easy to use. The machines and tools are designed for an intuitive die-cutting and embossing experience. For example, all plates are labelled with a number and are colour-coded for easy reference and use when building your sandwich. And just like the name suggests, our Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place.
  • Simple to store. The platforms on both machines fold for space-saving storage and they look pretty too–the sleek, clean design suits any crafting space.
  • Portable. You can use both machines at home or on the go with their folding platforms and ergonomic carrying handles. It’s so convenient to take along to crops or other crafting get-togethers.

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.

Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine:

Available by the end of the year. Smaller 3-1/2″ platform for your on-the-go crafting options. Weighs approximately 2.7 pounds. Lightweight, compact, and portable. Platform folds to make transporting easy and to take up less space when storing. Works with Stampin’ Cut & Emboss dies and embossing folders that are narrower than 3-3/8″. 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. Simple to make a sandwich. Includes plates that are labeled with a number and are color coded for easy use. All the plates you need to get started are included: 1 Mini Base Plate (Plate 1), 2 Mini Cutting Plates (Plate 2), 1 Mini Embossing Plate (Plate 3), and 1 Mini 3D Embossing Plate (Plate 4).  Note: 3D embossing folders that are compatible with the mini machine are not part of our initial product launch, however we anticipate being able to add these to our product offering later in 2021. Perfect for new or casual crafters who want a smaller machine that offers a high-quality die-cutting and embossing experience. It’s also great for all crafters who like to create on the go.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – Punches!

Welcome to our September Paper Crafting Blog Hop with Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the world! Each demonstrator is featuring a project using punches!

You may have arrived here from Tracy’s blog. She had a fabulous project! I chose the Beautiful Autumn Bundle (#155189) because it has the Beautiful Autumn Stamp Set (#153450) and the Autumn Punch Pack (#153609).

I started my card on a Cajun Craze card base with a layer of crumb cake under a layer of gorgeous paper from the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP (#153520).

I cut a circle in the DSP with the Layering Circle Dies (#151770) and inserted a piece of Very Vanilla cut with the same die. The Very Vanilla is popped up on dimensionals and then surrounded with leaves and acorns stamped in Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron, and Crumb Cake. The sentiment is stamped in Mint Macaroon, too.

I finished off the card with two pieces of ribbon from the Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack (#153553). They are Copper and Mint Macaron.
