Technique Tuesday Blog Hop (Feb, 2021)


Thank you for joining us to share different Die Cutting Techniques. I really love all the Stampion’ Up! dies because they are so detailed.  It’s amazing how the use of dies can add a huge wow to the simpliest card.  When I first started I had a lot of trouble getting the dies to cut the cardstock and to punch out all the little pieces out of the die. My other challenge was to try to put glue on the back of any detailed die to attach it to the card.  If either of these challenges sound familar to you, I have some two suggestions: wax paper and adhesive sheets!

Let me share how to use wax paper and adhesive sheets to improve your die cutting experiences. I was making a number of card kits using the Many Layered Blossoms Dies for an upcoming virtual card class. I love the Many Layered Blossoms Dies as they are incredibly detailed and you can use any color combination to make an amazing card. 

Here’s one of the cards:

In the past I’ve tried many different techniques that didn’t work, but I’ve had lots of success using wax paper. I’ve found the best way to get a good clean cut with the dies is to rub the cutting side of every part of the die with waxed paper before I place it on the cardstock. The wax on the edges of the die helps to cut the paper. If I’m making many cuts with the same die, I rub it with wax paper before each cut. To attach the flower bouquet for this card, I used adhesive sheets. 

These are so simple to use, so just give it a try. 

  • Cut the adhesive sheet and cardstock a little larger than the die you intend to use.
  • You peel off one side of the adhesive sheet
  • Place the peeled side of the adhesive sheet onto the cardstock or designer series paper that you wish to cut

  • Rub the cut edge of the die with wax paper 
  • Arrange the die on top of the cardstock with the adhesive sheet attached to the bottom
  • Put the die, cardstock, and cutting plates through your Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and remove the die cut with adhesive sheet on the back of the cardstock

  • Attach the die to your card by gently peeling back the other piece of paper  on the back side of the die that will expose the adhesive material to a portion of the card front.
  • Gentle pull back the adhesive while making sure the die is attaching to the card until the whole die is on the card front.

I hope my tips for die cutting and attaching die cuts to your cards were helpful.
