Aligning Stamps With Co-Ordinating Dies

Hi all, I have had a few requests to show how I use stamps with co-ordinating dies. There two main ways to do it; First you could cut the die out and then stamp over it directly, a stamp positioner would be helpful for this method or the method I use I use is to stamp the image first and then make a template with the die and cut it out. Using this method you can get a perfect placement of the stamped image inside the die cut.
 
Here is the video showing how I do it:


I forgot to add in the video that you can also use the template you have made over and over again. I like to keep mine stored with the stamp set.

Hope this was helpful to a few of you, thank you so much for watching!

  7. Thanks for this Michelle, I have always die cut and then stamped but as you can ruin the whole thing if you get the stamping wrong at the last moment I think I'll try this way! Thanks for the videos-I really enjoy watching them.
