How to care for the Platinum 6:
Clean the machine and its accessories with a slightly damp cloth only. Do not use a cleaning product or chemical cleaners on the machine. Canned air may be used to remove dust and debris from small areas of the machine. If your handle requires lubrication, place a small drop of household dish detergent between the white and bronze parts of the handle and rotate the handle to distribute. Alternately, you can remove and immerse the handle into clean water with dish detergent. To prolong the life of the plates, use both sides and remove any scrap materials after cutting.

The Glimmer Hot Foil System:
Here's a super cool and fabulous tool that will add glamourous foil to your DIY projects by Spellbinders! Once you get your hands on this foiling system you're going to want to add foil to everything!
This innovative system is an accessory to use with the Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine. Other popular die cutting machines that are compatible with this system include the Big Shot, We R Evolution, Vagabond and more.
You will love adding elegant and foil design to your cards, pages, invitation, banners, treat bags, place cards, party favors, thank you notes, save the date cards, engagement or baby announcements and anything else that you can think of that needs to look luxurious!
The system can be used with your own collection of dies; however, it's only going to transfer the cut of the die producing a delicate design in comparison to the available coordinating plates. Heat activated Glimmer Foil Rolls, variety packs or the Glimmer Plates are sold separately.

Glimmer Hot Foil FAQs:
Q: Which machines are NOT compatible with the Glimmer Hot Foil System?
A: The Glimmer Hot Foil System is NOT compatible with the Cuttlebug, Side Kick or any other machine that cannot cut Steel Rule Dies and does not have at least a 6" long platform.
Q: Can the Glimmer Hot Foil System use the Go, Press and Foil Machine Dies?
Q: Can you use any brand of heat transfer foil with the Glimmer Hot Foil System?
A: Unfortunately, no. Other popular foils like Therm o Web and MINC are toner based and will not work in this system. This machine does not use a toner to adhere the foil.
Q: Can you use any die with the Glimmer Hot Foil System?
A: Technically, you can use most metal wafer thin dies, however they may not create beautiful designs. Some do not make sense with this system as they were created to cut out shapes. If you do decide to try a new wafer-thin die, keep this in mind and add an extra cardstock shim or two, as water thin dies are slightly thinner than the Glimmer plates.

Here’s what our customers are saying about the Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine:
RE-ignited about die-cutting
“30 or so years ago, I fell in love with rubber stamping. Rooted in paper and ink, that led me to my current obsession with mixed media, specifically art journaling. I may have tried a die cut machine long ago with much frustration and felt "Eh, what's so great about this?" But then, a friend suggested I give it another go specifically with this machine. Oh. My. Goodness. The precision. The ease. The cool Seth Apter dies that work right into my art journaling and mixed media cardmaking. I can't wait to explore. I've got a new obsession!” – EphemeraPaduca
Spellbinders Platinum 6 Machine
“This machine will make your die cutting and embossing life so much easier. I enjoy using my machine and find it easy to use, easy to move and easy to wind the handle. It is not to heavy and will sit nicely on your desk. Sturdy and folds up to carry. Lots of different plates and mats available to mix & match to your machine. Overall a great machine to use with your projects.” – AnnmarieVaux
“I previously owned the Sizzix Big Shot before owning the Spellbinders Platinum 6 and I have to say that I love the Platinum 6! This machine folds up to be much more compact for easier storage, is quieter and seems to be smoother when running the plates through! I would definitely recommend this die cutting machine!” – LindseyDecor
Here's what our customers are saying about the Glimmer Hot Foil Accessory Kit:
Love the Versatility of the Glimmer!!!
“This system is so much fun to work with. It is unique and different from a foil machine, as it allows you to work with so many types of materials. I created beautifully foiled Christmas cards, but my favorite way to use the Glimmer Hot Foil machine is to emboss napkins with foil sentiments. They look like they were purchased at a fancy store! I cannot wait to work with other materials, it also works with things like leather, wood grain paper, velvet paper...make sure you own a manual die cutting machine as this is an accessory to be used with one.” – Laura Winslow
“Love this machine, I bought a TODO earlier this summer and wasn't impressed. This glimmer system and the Spellbinder stamps are wonderful, they work every time one pass with my cut n' boss, I have already made some amazing cards...I love the non-skid plate, the stamps stay where you put . Can't say enough good things about this product. Scrapbook.com was so prompt in getting my order in the mail, I will order from them again for sure!! Have a great day!!” – D Asay
I was so excited to buy the Platinum 6. However after 10 uses making maybe 10 cards my plates started to wrap and it is getting worse. I wonder is there a fix? My cuddle bug which was still working after 10 years had minor plate warp but certainly NOTHING like this. I can not recommend this machine as it stands now.
I welcome suggestions on how to prevent or minimize warping.
I researched between getting this entire kit or buying a different foil machine to use with my Cuttlebug. In the end, I chose this kit so I could upgrade my die cutting machine and be compatible with the hot foil machine. I have not used them yet but I am intrigued and enthusiastic about creating unique greeting cards.
