Get your kicks with the Vintaj BIGkick!

We were very excited to debut our Vintaj BIGkick at the 2011 Bead&Button Show and couldn’t be more thrilled with how many of you were just as excited! Our new machine embosses and etches with ease and, thanks to Jeanne’s design skills, it looks super cute too! We will continue to feature DecoEmboss & DecoEtch projects made with the Vintaj BIGkick until the official launch at the summer CHA show July 19th. Embossing tools should be in stores by August and you can start designing your hearts away! If you missed our make&take at the show don’t worry, we have a DecoEtch and DecoEmboss step-by-step video that will teach you how to create fun unique pendants using our new tools. See how we incorporated the embossed and etched brass into our jewelry designs? Take your handmade designs to a whole new level, it really is as simple as 1, 2, 3!

  1. It IS super cool! I enjoyed the make and take with these fab girls. The embossing folders are what makes this truly special. It is different every time depending on what you use. I love it. Definitely on my wish list!
    Enjoy the day!

    Just curious, will these new embossing/etching folders work with my Vagabond? I sold my big shot in order to subsidize the cost of the Vagabond.

    Will you be partnering with Tim Holtz also? Can some of my metal embossing folders work on metal as well?

    Thanks.

    I have been waiting to hear when this will launch! so glad I checked the blog today…have played around with the Vagabond…hoping like Monica it will work with Tim’s products too! Can’t wait!! xo amanda

  4. We’re so excited about these new tools! It was great to see you Erin :)

    Monica and Amanda, yes Tim’s Texture Fade folders work beautifully on our basic shaped altered blanks, such as the Circle, Square, Rectangle, Maple Leaf and a few other larger shapes. Here is a link to a project Jeanne made with Tim’s Woodgrain folder on our altered blank canvas. The Vagabound works great on our metal, here’s a video showing it at CHA, with our new folders. Have fun!

  6. Cynthia says:

    Looks like fun!! When will this be on the website to purchase?

  7. YES! I’m so excited. These things just can’t come out fast enough, but I know it will be worth the wait : )

    I can’t wait to play! This is truly going to explode the creative possibilities for the handmade jewelry maker. You Vintaj Gals Rock!

    Hello!
    Will this work to emboss aluminum blanks used to make metal stamped jewelry??

    thanks

  10. Vintaj says:

    We can only guarantee the results with our metals. My 1st thought is aluminum will get stuck in the folder, while ours pop out. – Betsy

  11. Will these accessories work in my Original Sizzick?

  12. Vintaj says:

    Cheryl, yes our dies will also work with either a Sizzix BIGkick, BigShot, and Vagabound machines. Have fun!

  13. Ellen says:

    Will your folders work in the Sizzix Texture Boutique?

  14. Vintaj says:

    Ellen, we would recommend contacting Sizzix directly with your question. We have personally only used our dies with the Sizzix BIGkick, Bigshot and Vagabound machines. We don’t have a Texture Boutique so we’re uncertain if it will work the same. We want you to have great results every time! I’m sure someone on their team would be able to help you.

  15. Renetha says:

    Just a question…Can the Vagabond be used to make the jewelry components?

  16. Vintaj says:

    Hi Renetha! Yes you can use the Vagabond with our DecoEmboss & DecoEtch dies and our Altered Blanks

    Check out our Youtube channel to see how we use the dies and make components for jewelry!
    Happy Designing!

    I have already the Bigshot Machine but I put a vintaj blank metal and it don’t emboss it. And I use a thin metal and it emboss it but some of the etch dies emboss to superficial. In one store I visit they tell me that the vintaj machine have a special roller that I can adjust for the metals. I want to know if its true?

  18. Vintaj says:

    The original Sizzix BigShot and BIGkick machines are made exactly the same as the Vintaj BIGkick, it’s just the graphics that are different. They all will work on our Vintaj metal blanks with our dies. Keep in mind that the DecoEtch Dies only leave a fine line detail with a faint design, not a deep impression like the DecoEmboss dies do. Also, there are a couple of blanks that are a little thicker and don’t give the same results as most. When on our website, if you click into the dies it will say Yes or No for embossing. We have changed the thickness of our Arte Metal blanks at the beginning of the year, if you have older stock they will not work. Hope this helps!

  19. Karen says:

    I love embossing your metal blanks with my BigKick. I really prefer the embossing folders. Will you be cog out with more signs in 2013?

  20. Debbie P says:

    I have the original Sizzix with the bar that comes down and I am assuming it will not work with the Vintaj dies since it does roll. But will the Bigz dies work in the Vintaj?
