Release Party Day 3

Welcome back for our final day of New Release Celebration. We hope you have enjoyed it so far!

. Today we are showcasing the final three sets: Holly and Berries Clear Stamps Set, Birdcage Winter 2 Clear Stamp Set and Ornaments Set 2.

Day3

I don’t have any of these sets to play with. I got a set for next month’s release, so it will have to wait. And it is soooo worth waiting for! :) :) :) So, instead I’ve made a card with the Circles Fall Set and the Oak and Maple Leaf Set and a tid bit of a tutorial. I’ve received questions about getting the stamped image and die to work perfectly together. I’ll show you how I do that. But first the card:

grateful for you

Darling cat. Both cute but also a little, I don’t know, demanding? I simply loooove the leafs. And check out the paper. It’s new Riddersholm Design Fall papers´- Chantilly Dawn.

Grateful for you2

I’ve used this fabbie sketch for the Shaped Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World:

This is how I use the stamps and dies:

1: When I first use the die I use it once on a scrap cardstock piece to make a mask. I save the negative piece I get from running it through my Grand Calibur. I then store it with my die so I can use it over and over again.

Die cut två

2. Stamp. And then place the mask over it and make sure it looks good. Then adhere it with a piece of removable tape to hold the template on place over the stamped image.

Die cut tre

3. Place the die in the mask’s hole. Make sure you get a perfect fit and adhere it with a piece of removable tape and then run it through the die cut machine.

Die cut fyra

4. Done!

Since it’s clear stamps you could die cut first and then stamp, but if you want to be sure of a perfect result, this one is easier and safer. And once you’ve got the mask, it’s not much extra work. :)
