I just got my big shot machine and am wondering are you able to use regular stamps with the big shot?
I am thinking of using the stamp to cut the design onto the felt to then color it Is this possible?

Stamps are too soft to cut or emboss. If you don't want a stamped line to show, try using an ink that is very similar in color to your material, or perhaps a watermark ink (as long as it'll be compatible with whatever you're coloring with).

If you want to stamp an image and then cut it out there are companies that make matching stamps and dies....
Sizzix does some, as shown below....

There are also digi-stamps that work with certain dies. I have one for Nestibilities label 18 that I really like. I print it up on cardstock then run thru the Big Shot.

Lawn Fawn dies work well in the Big Kick, so I'm sure they will work in the Big Shot, too. They also have matching stamps that are sometimes bundled with the dies.
