How to Use Thin Cuts with Stamping

How to Use Thin Cuts with Stamping

c1641 Springtime wishesHave you ever stamped something and wanted to cut it out, but didn’t want to do a bunch of fussy cutting? I’m sure most of us have! Yesterday, I showed you some cards where I used Close to My Heart Thin Cuts to cut some coordinating stamped floral images.

I thought you may like to see exactly how to use them. Take a peek at this video.

Did you notice how she showed the little magnetic sheet to keep them all in place? Well… I was thinking about the magnetic base that is available to use with my Big Shot, and thought this was a good idea to just stamp my images and put them on the little enclosed magnetic sheet to hold my Thin Cuts in place. NOT a good idea! As soon as I lifted my cuts off, and realized I had almost cut through my magnetic sheet, it dawned on me how goofy that was! However, it didn’t cut all the way through, so all is well. I never said I was perfect! Laugh amongst yourselves!

Here are Thin Cuts currently available. Once you click on one, it will also show you the coordinating stamp set.

Until next time…
