Default partial die cuts

I bought a flower partial die cut from Simon Says Stamps and then saw the flowers used on a card but cannot figure out how she die cut just some of the flowers from the base as there are 4 flowers in the die that are very close together. The cards can be seen at Sending Hugs at heartshugsandflowersblogspot where Lin made 2 beautiful cards using the die. I do not know her email domain in order to ask her how she made them so am counting on all of you for help as usual.
Thank you ahead of time as always.

Did you try leaving a comment on her blog including a way she can contact you? I'm guessing she's placing a cutting plate in such a way that it only covers the bit she wants to cut but not having the die, I can't experiment to confirm.

I thought of that too be I cannot find her email address in order to contact her to ask the question. Perhaps it's because I am not a geek using the computer but just don't see it on her website. Thanks for the help.

Ok, I figured it out! (I had to hunt around for a video that showed the actual die.) You can cut the die itself apart by cutting thru those thin little bits of metal that attach the flowers to each other, so you would have 5 individual flower dies. Then you are able to just place the die you want on your card to cut.

You don't need her email address in order to leave a comment. Under each post on the blog there's something that says "x comments" (where x is the number of comments already left). Click on that and you should be able to enter a comment. The exception would be if it's set up in such a way that you need a login that you don't have (blogger, google etc).

Sounds like cbet might have solved the problem for you, though!

ETA - yes, cbet is right (I did the youtube thing too!) - that's designed to be cut apart, it's not a single die. Many dies now come attached by those little "threads" and you just need to snip them apart with wire cutters. I usually smooth the little nubs down with a bit of wet 'n dry sandpaper too so that I have a smooth outline.

Thanks for the tip on smoothing out the little bits left when you cut the dies apart. I have a set I bought and hate the rough little bits that catch on my skin when I'm handling the dies. Off to do a bit of sanding
