Default How to align stamps with closed dies

I just wanted to share this video from Michelle Short which I found via the Clearly Besotted Stamps website on how to stamp your image then diecut it using a closed die (as opposed to an open die where you can see easily how to line it up against your image). It is absolutely brilliant and so easy. Hope this helps someone out there like me who was going absolutely nuts trying to line up their dies and wasting ALOT of time trying and trying to get it perfectly aligned.


Here is the video Enjoy!

When you see it, it's so obvious. So why did I never think of it? LOL

It's the best way I know! I learned it from the IO blog a while back and the first thing I do now when I get any set of dies like that is to cut a set of templates to keep with it, from an old cereal box. I store the templates with the dies so I'm always ready to go.

I learned that trick from Heartfelt Creations quite a while ago. I thought it was great.

Great technique. Thanks for posting it. I think I saw something similar a while back, but I had forgotten about it. My "senior moments" are becoming back-to-back.

That's exactly what I thought! I love the idea of storing the templates with the dies too.

What is funny, is that I thought that is how you were supposed to do it all along. I do it with punches that have matching stamps too. I punch out a template, then insert the stamps into the cut outs then lay the clear block on top. This way my stamps are aligned just like they are on the punch. After stamping I can slide the card stock into the punch and snap it's done. I then keep a template with the stamps and dies. My favorite to punch and stamp set is my Stampin up Build a Blossom. Of course it's a 3D Flower!! lol

Thanks for sharing this as now I KNOW for SURE that I'm doing it the right way!!

If it works for you, it's the right way for you . But there will always be other people who prefer to cut first and then stamp - and that's right for them . I'm in the camp that this is the right way for me, obviously!!

thanks for the tip. I have some little airplane dies that I wasn't happy with after I stamped and cut. Now I think I can get it right!

Iliana (My Sweet Petunia) did a You-Tube video using the MISTI showing a similar process, which is absolutely the reason I bought the MISTI. With this method, you cut, then stamp.

Cut your image; stamp image on scrap paper using the MISTI; place the negative portion of your cut over the stamped image; place your diecut back into the negative; stamp again and you have perfect alignment.

Both methods work great; you either have to cut twice or stamp twice. Just thought I would throw this out there for the MISTI owners.

I sometimes do this for open dies that are hard to line up, like a symmetrical flower where it really isn't symmetrical, there's some slight difference between the petals. (Or I will match the stamp and die and mark them in one spot with a sharpie and that becomes the "top" of the stamp and die.)

I'm a stamp then cut gal.

What a lovely "tool" to have in your data base (mind) no matter whether you like to stamp and cut or cut and stamp...... there is always a way to get the perfect result when we share the ideas we learn!!
I had not seen this being done before and love another method that helps!!

Great video! Don't forget to save your template with your stamp set! I got that tip from someone, and it's a time and supply saver!
