  • I have followed the instructions explicitly that were included with my spellbinders platinum 6 and have yet to successfully emboss a card with an embossing folder using your instructions. I put in the platform then the embossing folder with the card and then the plastic plate. That in itself just quickly runs through the machine without embossing because there's not enough pressure. I have to add 3 pieces of card stock to make it thicker. Is there something I am missing?   By: sanuhl (16-Jun-20) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • I had the same exact experience. I followed direction exactly, and it slid through without embossing my paper inside the embossing folder. I tried every way, using different plates. It was either too thick and would not go through the machine or too thin and did not emboss. I figured my machine was defective, so I sent it back. So disappointed as I wanted it to work. If someone has the answer to this problem, I would really like to hear from you. I am not a beginner at embossing greeting cards as I have used the early model of the spellbinder for over ten years. Hope someone has the answer to this problem. By: kaekjeff (30-Apr-22) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    I'm new to embossing, but have purchased a few 5x7 embossing folders. I'm thinking of purchasing this machine. I've read the embossing instructions, but am a little confused. Doesn't the paper go inside the embossing folder? Do I need to cut my embossing folder ? The instructions say:

    Insert the base platform
    Add your die cut or paper of choice to the top of the Cutting Plate
    Place the embossing mat on the top of your die cut or paper
    Add embossing plate
    Run through the machine by turning the handle

    Thanks for any help.   By: User (13-Feb-19) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!

    • Embossing folders are different than the embossing mat. The instructions you mentioned are to turn your dies into embossing. If you use the mat instead of the die plate it will put an impression into the paper instead of cutting it. Another way to stretch your dies. Embossing folders hold the paper inside and should never be cut apart. Hope this helps. By: mzlikely (03-Jan-20) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • The paper goes inside the embossing folder. Do not cut the embossing fold, it is supposed to stay attached. By: VickyLevy (15-Feb-19) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • What is the difference between the Platinum and the Platinum 6?   By: KarenSu (31-Mar-21) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • The difference is the size of the machine and the opening. The Platinum has plates that measure 8.5" x 12.25" and the Platinum 6 has plates that measure approximately 6.125" x 8.75". We hope this helps! By: Scrapbook.com (01-Apr-21) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • For those of you that are considering the bigger platinum machine, be aware that (at least this is my experience) it is VERY DIFFICULT to run through any paper and dies, I can barely turn the handle. Embossing folders have been a no go for me. I contacted Spellbinders for help and the best they could offer was to run through the dies on the outside edges of the plates. Well, it didn’t work because the middle didn’t cut. I contacted them again for help and was told that I could have it checked by returning it to them AT MY EXPENSE! Now, I live in Canada, and to mail this back to them is very expensive. After spending $280.00 cad $ I surely expected a machine I could use. I’m very disappointed!

    • I tried to use 3D embossing folders with this machine but I was not able to do so. I contacted Spellbinders in October of 2020 via email after learning they might have a 3-D embossing plate to work with these type of embossing folders. They responded back letting me know the 3D embossing plate is a discontinued item. They mentioned at the time they were currently working on a video on how to stack your sandwich using 3D embossing folders. They also mentioned that they would post a video about it on their YouTube channel. I hope this was helpful! By: HarshGurl (06-Jan-21) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

Other foil machines do not use the same heat activated method and you cannot put dies through them. These would include the Minc type machines. Their foils won’t work.

    • Hi Jackie. I haven't had any problem with my dies going through the machine. Use the base, then one of the base plates. Put your paper down and then your die on top. Place the other plate on top of that and then roll through. Sometimes you have to put a little muscle into it. It feels like it won't go through, but then it does. Try moving your die to the middle of the base and see if that helps. I get more resistance when the dies are bigger, but they still go through. I hope this helps!

  • I have a Vagabond and a hand crank Sizzix machine-would I benefit from this machine? I typically just do did cutting and not fabric or wood. I do hear the popping or cracking sometimes when did cutting on my current machines but that does not really bother me. The space saving and new pads are what is luring me towards this machine.   By: LizBechtelFord (04-Dec-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you!

    • This is my first die cutting machine and I purchased t for the space saving. It works really well! I haven’t tried the embossing Yet. Yes it makes noise but doesn’t bother me a bit! I have enjoyed using the stamp/die sets that I have found. By: necygirl (05-Dec-17) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • It is similar to big shot. Cuts all my different dies. I love it because it doesn't take up as much space as my big shot plus. By: debbineely (05-Nov-17) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    I haven't got a single clue to how these machines work. Are there simple, detailed instructions on how to operate it, what to use with it, etc., included in the package? I'm a beginner, so it really needs to be very easy to understand.   By: User (13-Sep-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!

    • Die cutting machines are very easy to use. There are always directions either in booklet form or right on the base platform. It is always a good idea to keep one of your cutting plates as a DO NOT CUT plate so that the sandwich rolls through nice and smooth. There are many YouTubes online showing how to use the different manual machines and also the electronic machines. I can't live without my die cutting machines now...they are an essential tool to my card making. An exceptional site for using the Spellbinders Platinum 6 and the Sizzix BigShot is scrapbookingmadesimple.com. Stacey has videos that are actual classes and she gears them towards total beginners right up to advanced crafters. You might want to check her out. Hope this helps. Cheers!

    • You can view instructions on how to operate the Platinum 6 Machine on Youtube.com

  • I recently purchased Spellbinders die called What's the Point. Claims on the package that it is compatible with the Platinum Machine. Does that include the Platinum 6? The die is too big for my existing machine (Cuttlebug).   By: killerbee004 (30-Jun-17) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!

    • Any die that did not fit my Cuttlebug has fit into my Platinum 6. I measured width. It is six inches wide. Hope this can help you. By: Jasperbutsie (04-Jul-17) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!
