    Recently purchase the foil machine, having some spotting with the foil onto the paper? I am using the spellbinder foil machine with the vagabond dye cutting machine ! Why is it spotting!? Any suggestions! Cln518@aol.com

    I have ordered the Glimmer Machine, but I need to know what die cutting machines are compatable with it? I have a BigShot and a BigKick, will either work? Or do I need to purchase a larger machine?

    • Yana Smakula

      Doris, both are compatible. Here’s a full list of compatible die cutting machines:

      Spellbinders Platinum, Platinum 6
      Deep Sea Die Cutting and Embossing Machine
      Sizzix BigShot
      Sizzix BigKick

      Sizzix Big Shot Express
      Tim Holtz Vagabond

    I just bought a glimmer foil machine, using it only once and now as I tried it again it will not heat up? The power turns on but the green light does not come on and it will not heat up. Any help I am so excited about the machine and so sad and trouble by this problem.

    • Yana Smakula

      Ellen, it does not. Glimmer is compatible with:

      Spellbinders Platinum, Platinum 6
      Deep Sea Die Cutting and Embossing Machine
      Sizzix BigShot
      Sizzix BigKick
      Sizzix Big Shot Plus
      Sizzix Big Shot Express
      Tim Holtz Vagabond
      We R Memory Keepers Evolution
      RG Amaze
      Craftwell eBosser
      

      Glimmer is NOT compatible with Cuttlebug or any other machines that can’t cut Steel Rule Dies AND have at least a 6” wide platform.

      Sue, you need to use our new Glimmer plates for ideal foiled results. As for the dies, you can foil with all of them as well, but they will give you a thin foiled line (where the cut line is supposed to be). I hope this helps!

    I have one of the new Stampin’ Up! Cut and Emboss machines – which looks remarkably similar to the Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing machine. Is the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System?

    Thank you so much for any information that you can give me on this!

      • susanlapanne

        Thanks so much, Yana – that’s exactly what I was asking! I should have proofread the post before hitting send! I was hoping that it was compatible – so I’ll be spending some money tonight, I guess!

        Thank you so much for your incredibly quick response!

    It simply is fun and adds such a finished touch and Wow factor to your paper projects. I am addicted and please watch Yana’s videos because she will give you great advice on how to make a success out of your endeavors!
