Stampoholic Episode 2 - Die Cut Images

Welcome back for Episode 2 - this week I would like to share some tips and tricks on using stamped images that come with thin metal dies.  The first set that I am using is the solid metal dies which you have to cut first and then stamp - by using a template in your Stampoholic it makes it so much easier to line up the stamp and get a perfect impression every time.

For more detailed instructions please check out the youtube video attached.

Now the second set that I used is the open metal dies.  Generally you would cut these apart and then place them on all your images that you have stamped in various places on the paper.  By keeping the dies attached you can stamp and cut all in one run through your die cut machine. 

First you place your dies cutting side down on your stampoholic as shown.

Then you would position your stamps in the spot for each die, wiggle them into place and then close the lid to transfer them over.  Then you can stamp as many as you want and when you are ready to die cut you just place your die over top and run it through your die cut machine once.

You will definitely want to see the video to watch this one in action =)

Here are the copic colours used in the above cards.
