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.

Build up a fan­tas­tic Christ­mas al­bum with stamped im­ages, ac­etate and pretty pa­pers De­signed by Julie Gibbs Julie is a pas­sion­ate crafter – visit her blog at www. jules-al­wayswith­a­heart.
