Give shape to your designs with stamp-and-die sets that take the fuss out of fussy cutting
Use edger dies to shape around stamped designs
Stamps are so versatile – you can change the look of your design simply by choosing different media to colour the images, and you can even mask off different sections for partial stamping. For even more variety, why not pick a stamp set that comes with coordinating edger dies? These dies trace the outline of the stamped images, enabling you to shape around one side or completely fussy cut the design. Julie Gibbs shows you how to use these two different styles of die-cut in her festive masterclass projects. She also shows you how to create fantastic designs by stamping on acetate with StazOn permanent ink, which looks wonderful in Cotton White when used with the Snowflakes stamp.
However you decide to use the stampand-die set, you can have great fun coming up with lots of different designs.
