Default Lining up stamps on die cuts

What is the best way to stamp an image onto a die cut so the image is where you what it, eg centered on the diecut piece?

If it's not a clear stamp, then I would use the stamp-a-ma-jig.

If I'm using an "open" die (like Nestabilities) I usually do it by stamping first, laying the die over the image/sentiment since you can see to centre through the die. I hold the die in place with a little bit of tape (stuck so that it's on the die and the waste part of the cardstock) before I run it through the machine.

If it's a solid die or a pre-cut shape, I find a stamp positioner is the best way to go. I put a bit of repositionable adhesive on the back of the die cut to stop it moving around on the work surface and then use the positioner as normal.

HTH!

I guess im stuck using the stamp positioner. My big shot has to have the die facing up so the paper would cover it. Thanks for the suggestions tho

I use a Big shot with the die facing up too - that's the point of the tape to keep it all in position as it goes through the machine. Place the die over the stamped image and tape it in place, flip it over onto the cutting plate, top it with the second one and run it through the machine. Let me know if that's unclear and I'll try again

Here is a great idea for cutting pre-stamped images with dies. Check out this video on youtube. You make "templates" for the dies from clear acetate.

Oh, that is very cool!

I've been using my Stamp A Ma Jig pretty successfully, but I am going to try this out.

Thanks for the link!

I love the acetate idea. I'm going to try this, especially with some of my more intricate Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies.

I have a Big Kick (same machine), and I use the die facing down all the time. Just put the paper underneath the die, and make sure that you have a cutting mat under the paper. In other words, sandwich the die and the paper between 2 clear cutting mats.

I have a Big Shot as well, and I face the die up or down, whatever. Like Scrapjanny says, as long as the paper is against the cutting edge, no worries.

THANKS for this link! I had seen it originally on the MFT blog and had forgotten all about it. I'll be cutting acetate pieces this weekend.

Die cut a plain paper. You can stamp your image and then place the cut image over it so you will know where the cut will be in relation to your image. Then line up your die. This was a hint that I learned in a demo. a few years ago.

This is what I do too, and it works especially well for the dies that aren't open in the middle.

There is no rule saying the die has to go up or down so long as it is properly sandwiched between the cutting plates. Use it whichever way works best. For me, I like to see the die with the cutting side facing down so I can see where it sits on the paper and just what I am cutting out.

There is also a good video on the Heartfelt Creations website showing how to do this without a stamp positioner. It is a little tedious but if you keep the template for future use, it saves time in the end.

Hope this helps.

Another option is to press your diecut onto the matching inked stamp. Video here
Looks like it takes a good eye & some practice. I'm sticking to my stamp positioner.

When I have an open die I stamp first then place my die face down on top and use a post it note to hold the die and paper in place. Works great. A post it note is just sticky enough to hold everything in place and not wreck your stamped image or tear the paper.

Interesting method of making the negative template. I wonder if you could do the same with acetate - then you could keep the template forever. I think it would be easier to lay the negative over the image and drop in the die, rather than making the pencil marks around the positive template and then getting the die aligned with it.

Neither of these tips works, however, if you are using the kind of "ganged" closed back dies that, say, Papertrey sells. You know, where three dies are stuck together on piece of metal. Nichole Heady of PTI recommends stamping after cutting by making a sharpie mark both on your die and the back of your stamp that you can use to orient stamp and die correctly but I've never been able to do it. She makes it look so easy and reasonable on the video but I am flummoxed by it, so maybe it's just some personal brain glitz. I also don't always find it easy to stamp centered on a blank die cut, even if I've dotto-ed it down to a dark cardstock for maximum contrast. And worn my optivisors. The only thing I can do for those dies is use a stamp positioner. Also not a perfect method, especially if the die cut is biggish and awkward to hold and maneuver with one hand while you hold the positioner with the other.

Good thing the charm of stamping is in it's little imperfections.

Lol, Rachelrose! Isn't that the truth! She does make it look so easy, and it seems like it should be with clear stamps, but there's that little bit of distortion through the acrylic, the glare of the reflected light, the eyes that aren't as good as they used to be...must be because she's much younger than I am! My stamping is quite "charming"!

So glad I ran across this thread. In the interest of saving space, I am considering getting rid of some of my bulky Marvy punches and just using my Nestabilities. My main question is do you just use regular scotch tape, or do you use something less "tacky"? And on the dies that are open, (and narrow like nesties) where do you tape it? 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.

Sometimes I tape sometimes I don't. TBH if I tape it is a worn piece that has minimal adhesive qualities just keeps it from slipping. Normally just one small piece on the side/corner will be enough. HTH.

If you want to use something less sticky, use a post it note over the top, run it through and pull it off. Works like a charm.

I only tape my Nesties down if I'm wanting to particularly cut out a certain part of my cardstock - like if I've done a Distress background and I like the way one area came out or if I'm working with a pattern that needs to be dead square. Or if I'm cutting a window in a card front.

I use blue painters tape. You can run a small piece right across the die on one or both sides to hold it in place. It comes right off the die cut piece at the other end and I have never had any gunk build up on the die. I usually take the bits of tape and stick them to either side of the top of my Big Shot to reuse.

Thanks for the replies!! I'm just so tired of trying to store all those heavy punches, when I have the same designs in a die. I'm trying to re-organize my supplies and just keep what I can easily store. Thanks again, I'll give it a try!

I use quilter's tape, which is basically 1/4" wide masking tape. Works great with those narrow open dies.

Another option for holding dies in place is repositionable Scotch brand tape. I found mine at Staples and it works great for holding things in place without causing any damage to paper. Little dies just need one piece, bigger dies sometimes need two. When I'm done I just stick the piece of tape on the top of my Cuttlebug and I can reuse them quite a few times before they lose all their stickiness.

I like the way that Heartfelt Creations shows to line up stamps and dies. Laying simply circles or squares are easy - it's those things like flowers that always got me. But using their technique of die-cutting a template - I have had perfect results. I just leave my paper template attached to the dies for my most frequently used.

Following is the link to a video. Give it a try and let me know which of the ways listed, you find easiest.

Well I am just a die cut challenged weirdo then. I tried all these suggestions for die cutting stamped images...Fail!! Cannot do any of them...I know the reason...I didn't go to Kindergarten so never learned to Cut and Paste properly. hahaha

Kathy, you may like the step by step PDF document. This way it doesn't zip past in a video.

Here is the link: Heartfelt Creations | How To

Then choose: Matching the Stamps & Dies

That should bring up a PDF document that you can even print out and keep by your project as you work on it. Good luck!

There's a very similar PDF tutorial at Impression Obsession: http://www.iostamps.com/mm5/images/DieAlignment.pdf
That's the one that solved all my positioning problems - with the very few matching dies and stamps I have.

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!!
I used Scotch Repositionable tape. I have also had people tell me they use sticky notes and painters tape. These tapes all have less "sticky" so I have never noticed a residue on my dies at all. Sometimes I will notice alittle on my cardstock but an adhesive remover (looks like an eraser) takes that off.
