I have purchased some cool dies by Spellbinders but they are very intricate and I have a heck of a time getting the little bits and pieces of cut papers out of the dies. I recently purchased some craft foam by Cheery Lynn Designs and, after watching a video on their web site, I think I fixed the problem.
Here you see the foam in the areas where the paper will be cut out.
Here is the die cut with the die. I did have to use a bit of thin chip board in my Big Shot's "sandwich" but the pieces cut nicely from the card stock and I had NO little pieces stuck in the die! How wonderful!!
And here's my card. I think I have a gal wanting a card kit but with different papers. A good sign since my Christmas in July class got canceled. This is made with left over paper from making 3 class kits, 2 were requested and 1 for some extra $$.
My hubby was quite impressed with all the layers and this card was a lot faster with that release foam in the dies! The stamp is a The Angel Company one. So, what do you think??
I will be busting my buns getting stuff done for the next 2 weeks as I'm going to Wyoming to see kids, grand kids, and a great grand son! So, if I go "missing" for a few days without a project, please don't worry! I'LL BE BACK! LOL!
