In this sample I cut with just the tinist border around the oval. In hindsight, I should've used brads to really finish it off properly!

Can you explain more? I have never had EP flake and I cut around it all the time!

Ooops. The quote did not make it, but it was in response to the post a few posts back.

Whenever I cut something that's been embossed it causes an ugly edge that flakes. That's why I haven't seen the purpose in these types of stamps...I'd want them to look metal and then I'd have the edges flaking.

I just have never had a problem with the embossing flaking. I have been stamping for over a decade.

I stamp first , cut then emboss. It's just the way I've always done it, altho with the new kia mini scissors I think it would be easy to cut after. I'm off to try.

How do you cut after you've stamped? I mean, is the ink still wet or have you also put the powder on? But still, how do you not make a mess of the ink or powder?
