Default Can you cut out stamped images w/cuttlebug?

I've never used any kind of die cut machine before. So, I was wondering... can you stamp an image (say riveting - 1 1/4" circle) and then somehow cut out the image? Can you control where the die is placed carefully enough to do something like that?

don't have a cuttlebug, but I am pretty sure the answer to this is not really, unless you lay the stamped image inside of one of the dies at just the right place and don't have any shifting

I've done this with my Sidekick lots of times.....As long as it's kept abstract and not EXACT, it works out fine.

I've never tried to do this with my Sizzix or with my Big Kick, but I'm not going to say it's impossible. You might be able to use a repositionable adhesive to hold the cardstock in place on the die.

In all honestly, though, I think (at least for the example you mentioned) it would be a lot easier to use a punch to cut out your shape.

The new "clearlitz" that Sizzix has come out with have a clear window in the centre of the die so you can place the die with precision over a photo, etc. There aren't very many clearlitz dies, tho, and they cost more.

Mel has just mentioned the Sizzlits Clearlits dies - Ellison have a range of these also, they are called Window Cuts. Because they are see through, you can place them exactly in the right place, they're fab!
