Question Unfrogettable

Those of you who own Unfrogettable...how did you trim in between the frog's legs? Did you just clip up between the feet and leave in between the legs filled in, or did you try to trim out in between the legs? If you left it filled in, has it affected the stamped image? My preference would be to trim it out somehow, but I don't want to ruin it. TIA for your help!!

You can use Exacto knife. I do this allll the time for the heart on the mug from Espress Yourself set. Works wonderfully for very delicate and tight parts that scissor wouldn't do too well.

I use a #16 blade, not the #11 that comes with most exacto knives. Learned the trick from the guy from Popups by Plane Class at a stamping convention. He swears by them and I agreee. The #16 makes turns much easier. They're worth looking for.

I used my SU Craft and Rubber Scissors to trim between his legs. I was very careful and had no undercutting. I had used someone else's set who hadn't trimmed between the legs before I got mine, and it was very difficult to stamp with it without getting a blob of ink on the rubber that transfered to the stamped image. I try to trim as close as I can with all my stamps because I hate that type of extra rubber ink transfer.

Same here, I used the Craft and Rubber Scissors and it was pretty easy to do. I cut out all the "empty" rubber areas on my stamps even if the section is closed i just snip through it and make sure that when I adhere it to the wood I push it together really closely where I cut it apart.

Yep, me too! I just got my craft and rubber scissors sharpened before this set came and it was simple. You just need to be careful as mentioned, not to undercut the foam under the rubber.
