Default Embossing Diffuser

Good morning 😃
Have any of you used the embossing diffusers? What do you think of them? I bought a set and really like them. They allow you to leave an open space for a stamped image or sentiment. I am going to try and see if I can use them with dies to cut just a portion of a background. Here is an example using an embossing folder:

I have a set but haven't used it in any thing other than to experiment with it the first time I got it. Let me know who the die cutting works. I may drag them out and try again. That is a cute card.

I've used mine several times and like them. Only problem I've had it that it shoots out of the Big Shot fast and I have to catch it before it lands on the floor.

Depending on how much of a die you want to cut, you can do partial die-cutting without a diffuser - which I think might add too much bulk.

Partial Die Cutting Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers


I've used this to cut part of scenery dies, though it might take positioning it all the edge of the cutting plate twice to achieve the look I want sometimes.

A diffuser leaves a blank space. It is not used for any die cutting.

Depending on the die....couldnt one just cut an opening with scissors? Or use a circle (any shape)) die on the die cut to make an opening?

Palette icon Dies and diffusers

What I meant by using a diffuser with a die is to use a background die, say like a honeycomb, and use a round or oval negative from the diffuser set and just be able to cut the design that shape onto a card front. I don't have any background dies yet, but I will try it when I get one. I have the vision, but I haven't brought it to fruition yet! LOL

kmt1000, I'd had the same thought, but not got around to trying it yet. I can't see any reason why it wont work.
I have them, and did a piece on my blog about them quite a while ago. One thing worth mentioning- the video I watched, the lady used this sandwich mix:A plate, B plate, folder with cardstock, Diffuser, then B plate. My machine would not take this at all, but it went through hers easily. So be aware, you will in all probability need to change your stack around with these in place.
Another thing you may find useful, especially with the inserts from the diffusers- attach them to your stack with some low tack tape. Stops them moving about then.
