Easily cut detailed thinlits with the new Big Shot Platform

I've been having such a great time playing with all the new Stampin' Up! catalog items.  I'm particularly impressed with the new Flourish Thinlits and how well it works with the newest Big Shot platform replacement introduced in this year's catalog. Look at the details in this thinlit

Flourish Thinlits

Theses detailed thinlits are meant to be used with the Precision Base Plate and Thin Die adapter on the new Big Shot Platform, but I've been using the newest Big Shot platform with just my standard cutting pads and the new platform works beautifully!!  Run your dies through the Big Shot;  rub the Die Brush over the detailed thinlit and all the chads are gone!  No poking -- or maybe one or two remain --which really makes these new dies a breeze to work with.

Flourishes Thinlits and the new Big Shot Platform make cutting detailed dies a breeze!

Another must-have for adhering these die cuts is the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  I actually tried my old sticker-maker first thinking it would be great for the fine details of these dies.  Nope. Bad idea. In fact, it was a reaaaly bad idea.  I had to use my paper piercer to poke out the glue from each of the fine little leaf segments. grrr.  It was really painful.   Much easeir using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.  It did take some time to add glue using the Fine Tip Glue pen, but not as long as trying to remove all of the sticker-maker glue.  Tip:  Hold your die cut up to the light so you can tell where you've added glue.  The light catches the shiny glue making it easier to see where you've already added.

New Big Shot Platform

If you own a Big Shot and you plan to order any of the new detailed thinlets, you'll want to order the new Big Shot Platform.  A new Big Shot Platform replaced the version previously included with the Big Shot. The new platform is designed to perform even better with Stampin' Up! dies and embossing folders and is more compatible with the Precision Base Plate for intricate dies. It's also been simplified with fewer tabs that aren't needed with the dies and embossing folders we offer. 

If you already own a Big Shot, you'll want to buy one of these to replace your old platform.   The new platform will be included with each Big Shot purchased after June 1, 2016, with the launch of the 2016-2017 annual catalog. Item number for the new platform is: 142802
