Poppystamps Die Info and Sandwich
Poppystamps dies are so cute and whimsical! These are going to be so very versatile! Below are just some of the new designs we have received in AND there are more to come.
We wanted to make certain that you knew exactly what the dies looked like and provide you with a simple sandwich once again for cutting.
Pictured above is the Grand Madison Window on an A2 cardfront (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"). I can only begin to imagine the creative designs you will all achieve with this design!
As you can see when you cut out the window the additional etched details appear to create a beautiful sill and crown portion.
Once again I used my favorite die cutting machine, the Vagabond, to create this sample. I use the exact same sandwich as when cutting out Memory Box die designs, so if you are currently working with other low-profile dies you will use the exact same sandwich. Following is the Poppystamps sandwich:
I have positioned the plates askew for the photograph above - when cutting you will want to have them positioned directly atop one another.
Following is the sandwich as pictured starting at the base:
- Solo Platform
- Solo Shim (this comes with the Platform, but because it can be damaged after loads of use it can be purchased separately)
- Solo Thin Die Adapter
- Extra shim if necessary - this can be as thin as a piece of copy paper to as thick as a piece of Craft-a-Board. Some machines and dies have a "sweet spot". If you cut out your die image and it is not quite cut all the way through simply add a shim to your sandwich.
- Acrylic Plate or Cutting Pad - I typically keep my extended pad out because it can be easily used for the longer dies such as the rosette. (These cutting pads are too wide to fit in the Cuttlebug.)
- Poppystamps Die - Position with "blade" side facing down towards cardstock. I like to hold my die in position using tissue tape - this helps keep the alignment perfect. Yes, it's the perfectionist syndrome - LOL!
- Acrylic Plate or Cutting Pad
Now simply send your sandwich through your Big Shot, Big Kick, Vagabond or Cuttlebug and enjoy!
