Had to share the number 1 sellers last weekend at my Mystery Hostess Event.
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 Platform, Precision Base Plate and finish off with the Big Shot Die Brush, it's a snap. Here is the sandwich you need to use.
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);
- Magnetic Platform (#130658)– absolutely the best platform to hold metal dies in place!
- 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.
- Your card stock and thinlit
- Acrylic Cutting Pad
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.
