Had to share the number 1 sellers last weekend at my Mystery Hostess Event.

Bloomin' Heart Framelit Linda Bauwin Big Shot Die Brush

The Bloomin' Heart Thinlit Dies and the Big Shot Die Brush work hand in hand with the Precision Base Plate.  When I first saw the Bloomin' Heart Thinlit Die, I had a flashback of other detail dies I have used with not much success.  But when you use the Magnetic PlatformPrecision Base Plate and finish off with the Big Shot Die Brush, it's a snap.   Here is the sandwich you need to use.

The Sandwich

When using the Big Shot, you are taught how to make a good “sandwich” for your card stock.  . . making a good sandwich is especially important when cutting a detailed thinlit such as this.  To make this sandwich you will need (from bottom to top);

  1. Magnetic Platform (#130658)– absolutely the best platform to hold metal dies in place!
  2. Precision Cutting Pad (#139684)– there is no “give” to this cutting pad so it provides additional pressure for a clean cut on the detailed images.
  3. Your card stock and thinlit
  4. Acrylic Cutting Pad

Die Cutting

Here are some additional tips to make sure you get a great cut. 

  • For detailed dies, it is recommended to run the die through your Big Shot 3-4 times.
  • The middle of your Big Shot tends to be less tight than the edges so, put your detailed dies towards the edge.
  • When cutting Glimmer Paper, cut the paper from the back side when possible.
  • Each Big Shot is slightly different. Sometimes you may need to add a card stock shim.

Here is the card they made using the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack another big seller and the Sale-a-Bration set Perfect Pairings.

 Trick when using your Big Shot Die Brush, put in a clear stamp class or box to catch the pieces.   Don't forget Bloomin' Heart Framelit is part of my Stamp of the Month Kit this month.

The magnetic platform should not be used with the precision plate.
The reason being is that you take the chance of breaking the magnets in the magnetic platform.
