Default P 134 of the new S/U catty - what did they use?

On page 134 of the new catalog, the Happy 15th card, I get that they used the stamp set above, "Memorable Moments", but what did they use in between the two stamps, the oval part? And then I think they used the gingham wheel, but what about the stripes? The catalog addition that lists supplies doesn't seem to be complete. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I don't know *how* it was done, but the oval, and the little circles above and below it are created when the two stampings of the memorable moment outline are overlapped. It is not a separate stamp.

I could be totally wrong but it looks like to me the stripes & gingham patterns are hand drawn. The gingham wheel is too broad of strokes. Also, I agree with the above poster about how they overlapped the Modern Moments stamp to create the pattern but it looks like part of the stamp was masked off so it could be continuous. The oval & small teardrops look hand drawn as well. But, like I said, I could be totally off base.

Just ask your demonstrator. Even if they don't personally know, maybe they can call Demo Support and see if they can get the info.

I agree with the above posters about the overlapping stamp images and hand-drawn lines.

I would say that the stamp was stamped with matching ink like Linda said...overlapping the outer curves so as to create the oval look. The stamp only has the dotted lines.

Then they used a marker to add lines. They might have traced the edges of the dies with the narrow tip on the marker and used the brush tip for the stripes and "plaid". I don't think that it is any more difficult than that.

What I would be curious about is how they cut the top and bottom of the die and not the rest...so that you end up with the strip and not individual pieces.

I appreciate all of your help. I'm a demo'er so I could have called demo support, but just thought I'd get more help here. Diane

Diane - I don't know for certain how they did it, but here's a method that would work:

Instead of using the regular cutting plate, use a narrow one (the kind you can get for the decorative strip dies) and line it up so it only covers the top part of the die and run it thru your machine; then line it up to cover only the bottom of the die and run it thru again.

You could also try shimming both the top & bottom of the die at the same time (with strips of thick chipboard, maybe?) You're trying to apply pressure to the top & bottom of the die without putting any in the middle area.

Or (and I think this would actually be easier and definitely much less time consuming), maybe they just traced around the outside of the die and cut it by hand. It's not that intricate a shape.

I've done some of the selective cutting on the dies, and it is easier on my "old red" sizzix machine, but the very idea of having to line it up several times on top and several times on the bottom makes me shudder.

I was thinking that an exacto knife on the outside of the die would be easier, but I don't get along with them that well.

Some nice straight lines and a sharp pencil and some scissors appeals to me much more!
