All the way across, or just one side, or what? I don't want my dies to get all gunked up with tape residue. I haven't really used them for cutting out stamped images, just for layering shapes, but I'm thinking I might like to try.
Thanks for any advice!!
When I use the Nestabilities to cut a stamped image, I don't usually tape it down. I just put my cardstock with the image facing up and place the Nestie where I want it so the image is centered. Then I CAREFULLY place the other plate on top and run it through my Cuttlebug, holding the Nestie in place with the top plate while I get it situated in my Bug.

It's not as hard as it sounds. The Nestie doesn't move around if you are careful to keep it level as you place it in your machine.
