Default holding tiny diecuts in a stamp press

how do you hold tiny diecuts in place for stamping? i have the tim holtz platform & there's nothing to hold the paper in place other than the magnets. how do i stamp little leaves, for example? i cant imagine it would work to stamp first & then cut out the images but i could be wrong. thanks!

I die cut, place the entire piece, positive and negative die cut paper in the positioner and then I can line up my stamp.
It's hard to explain but here's one of my videos that shows how:

Amuse Studio doesn't have open dies so I use this technique for dies like that or small dies.
Hope that helps.

Why would it not work to stamp and then die cut? Especially if you have a magnetic platform for whatever you're die cutting with, like the Big Shot. I stamp then die cut all the time, even without pulling out the magnetic platform. Of course, I might have to use the flat plates, rather than my warped ones (time to bake those flat again!).

I'll either stamp first, then die-cut, or use double sided tape on the back of the cut-out to hold it where it needs to be for stamping.

Ditto. Positive die cut back into negative space.

Here's a great idea from Catherine Pooler:

I do the same as Heather. I think her YouTube link goes to her own videos though (if I click on it I see the handful of videos I have uploaded there so I suspect she's somehow got a "link to my videos" thing going on there that's literally "my videos" whoever you are!).

It's a really useful technique for doing multiples as well - set up the negative in your platform with the stamp positioned as you want it then you can just slot a new die cut into the "hole", stamp and keep repeating as many times as you want. I found it really helpful for doing Christmas tags one year!

Because some companies do not have open dies (they are solid metal) so it's really, really hard to get the die lined up over the stamp.

Yes, agree - though using the method Fiona linked to in post #6 works great in that case.

Now I remember where I learned it - from this IO info sheet:
https://www.iostamps.com/catalogs/DieAlignment.pdf

I think itís easier to grasp in a video but the sheet is handy.

We have some tips in this tutorial that might help too:

I use the method described in Pooler's video (the same as on the IO sheet of instructions and the SCS tutorial). Once I have made a negative piece for a die, I keep it with the die and it can be used every time to die cut that image after I've stamped it.

I never heard of this before. Is there a link I can get instructions? Warped plates drive me nuts
