Default Best way to stamp on a die cut

Hello all! I recently purchased a die cutting machine and am quickly obtaining quite the collection of dies.

I already owned the Lawn Fawn Critters in the Dog Park stamp set, and today I ordered the dies that go with the set, among several other die sets (hey....I was soooo close to that free shipping on Amazon....).


I do own a MISTI, so I am wondering if I should stamp and color the images first, or cut them and then stamp and color them.


I appreciate any advice and tips you can give a first timer!

I prefer to stamp first, then die-cut. You could color before or after. I would think before would be easier, especially for smaller die cuts.

Have you seen the tip where you die cut first and then place the negative image in your Misti? You then fit the stamp into the negative space, which aligns the stamp perfectly . Once you pick up the stamp with the Misti lid then place your already die cut piece in to the space to stamp on it. Works like a charm. This is great when you are making lots of the same image, like leaves.

The start of this video shows how to use the negative image in the MISTI. It's my favorite way to do it. (a note: I use a large enough scrap piece so I can use the magnet to hold it in place, then when I'm through, I store that 'template' with the die cut.)

If it's an image with a lot of coloring and I might mess it up, then I'll do the coloring first and then die cut, but with the MISTI, I really like being able to line up the stamping after cutting most of the time.

Happy playing and figuring out what works best for you.

Thanks for the suggestions! I had not seen that video, and I will watch it when I get home from work today. I have more dies to play with when I get home....one of my packages arrived today!

I would stamp, color and die cut because I am not the best colorer so that's where I am likely to mess up most.

As said, everybody has to do what works for them. Try both and see what you like.

This works SO well! It's one of the first things I tried when I got my MiSTI because I can never line up the stamp and the die. 100% success with this method.

I stamp and color first, and then I cut out the images. A little piece of washi or masking tape holds the dies in place nicely. Sometimes I cut them out by hand - especially if I don't want the white border around the edges that so many dies leave.

silly side note (maybe): If you like the idea of using the negative in your MISTI, you can make them and reuse them. Make one large enough (doesn't have to be huge, just big enough to clear the stamp), then use a magnet or two to hold it in place while you're using it, then store it with the stamp or die when you're finished.

Not silly at all! I intended to do this with a Bear Hugs negative that I was using last weekend and totally forgot to save it when I was finished. Thanks for mentioning it here and reminding me! . I'm sure others will be equally appreciative that you shared this not-the-least-bit-silly side note.

Laura339 and jeaniebean55, thanks for the tip on using the negative space to secure diecuts and stamp. And I'm saving the negative to use again. Works great and saved me a lot of frustration!
