Foil Die Cutting Techniques

– [Jennifer] Hi there and welcome, this is Jennifer McGuire. So lately I’ve been getting many requests to do some more foiling techniques. Now foiling is something
that will give you great shine and unique
results on your cards, and today I’m combining
it with die cutting. I’ve done some similar
techniques in the past, but today is definitely my favorite after trying out a bunch
of different things. I have a few different
techniques to share with you. The first one that I did
on most of my examples is definitely my favorite. I will link here to a
video I’ve done in the past for similar looks, where
you do not need a laminator. For most of today’s techniques you do, but I tell you, the results
are definitely worth it, and I’ll talk about what to
do if you don’t have one. As you can see, I have a bunch of examples to share with you today, because I had so much
fun with this technique. Okay, let’s start with
my favorite technique, and that is where I create
a stencil for my dies. So here I have a bunch of cardstock pieces where I went ahead and die
cut them with some dies, and I’ll talk about those dies later. You can use any cardstock for this. I should have used scraps, and I didn’t think about it at the time. Because again, we’re just
using these as stencils and not actually on our project, so it doesn’t matter what color they are. Now sometimes when you run cardstock with a die through your die cut machine, the paper warps a little bit. That sometimes happens
especially with intricate dies. If you see warping, I
recommend just running it through a laminator, just the heat-set in the laminator, and it will smooth it out, and you’ll have perfectly flat cardstock. So that’s a trick. Any time you have warping of paper, just use your laminator. And by the way, this is one my favorite uses of a laminator in my craft room. Okay, now I wanted to
create one more stencil before we start the technique. And this time, I’m using
the Simon Says Stamp Rounded Alphabet die set. I really like the style of these letters, and that they’re a little
less than an inch tall, so it’s perfect for a card. I wanted to show you the trick that I did to get the spacing just right for the sentiment that says, Hello You. I have here on my table a
piece of tape facing up, and I have two other pieces of
tape holding it at the ends. I’m positioning my letters
onto the sticky tape, and you can see the cutting edge is down. I need two Ls for the word Hello, but I only have one Hello die. So here’s a trick that I do, a lot of people ask about this. I find another letter
that’s the same width, and I use it as a place setting. So here I used the F in the
place setting for the L, for the second L. So say you need another
O, you could use a Q. Just look for a die that’s a similar size. Now I’m taking another piece of tape and transferring all of those
letter dies to that tape. So that is ready to die cut
as soon as I remove that F. However, I want to add
the word You below that. So I’m positioning my sticky
tape face-up again here, and I’m doing the word You, but I decided to use a heart die instead of the O in the word You. So now I’m picking this
up and I’m centering it. See how I have the grid
on my work surface here? I’m centering the You on that grid. Now I’m centering the Hello above it. And now I can have the
Hello and the You stacked, and nice and centered. So I can transfer the
You now onto that tape, and now I have this ready
to die cut on my card, and everything centered
and lined up perfectly. By the way, I do use
a lot of tape on this, but I can reuse those pieces many times. Now I’m putting anti-static powder tool onto my tape just so it’s not as sticky. I don’t need it to be super sticky. And I’m placing it onto
a piece of cardstock and I’ll run it through
my die cut machine. Any die cut machine would work, but I’m using my Gemini Junior today. Now I can carefully pull away the tape keeping the dies in place. And now we just need to do the L. So I can carefully remove the L die. There’s still an impression
on my purple tape, so I know where to put
it back if I want to use those dies again to die cut more pieces that say, Hello You. So now I have a Hello You stencil to go with all of my other
die cut stencils that I made. Okay, so let’s do the first technique, and this is where we
add foil via stenciling. Now whenever I want to
use stencils these days, I use Therm O Web Pixie spray, and I spray it on the back of the stencil. I do it in a box, I actually
take the box outside to do it, and you just put a light layer of this on the back of your stencil. Now my stencils are cardstock
pieces that are die cut today, but this works with regular stencils too. You just let it dry for a minute, and that gives it a little
bit of temporary stick so that you don’t have to tape your stencil to your paper. And this makes a huge difference, especially when you are applying anything over an intricate stencil. So this is pretty much an
intricate stencil here. And because we put the sticky on the back, all of that intricate part stays flat so we can easily apply something over it and get a clean look. So it’s hard to see here, but I put my die cut heart stencil, which is just a cardstock
piece that’s die cut, onto a piece of white cardstock. I’m applying Therm O Web Transfer Gel. This is a great inexpensive product that’s wonderful for foiling. I’m putting a generous
amount over the open areas on my stencil, and now I’m
taking a Therm O Web Stencil Pal and dragging it over to remove the excess and to smooth it out. And I can put the leftover
back into the bottle. Now I can carefully remove my DIY stencil, and there you can see the
transfer gel on my cardstock. If there are bubbles, just
blow it with some air. So I just blow right on
it, it pops the bubbles, and then you wanna set that aside to dry for about an hour. So let’s do a few more. This is the Hello You stencil
that I created earlier. I put the center of the O in there too. It all has that pixie spray on the back, so it’ll hold nicely while we apply the transfer gel on top. Now when I apply the transfer gel, you could use a piece of scrap paper, I have this old palette knife here, and I put a pretty generous
amount down, as I mentioned, because I really wanna fill
in all of the openings. Then that Stencil Pal is the coolest tool. Now I thought it was something
that I didn’t really need, but it is great for taking one clean swipe across your project and smoothing it out and filling in all the areas evenly. I really find it useful,
but you could definitely use a ruler or some sort of straight edge to drag across your project. This is a little bit flexible, so I find that it just
works great for this. But you can use anything
that you may have on hand with a straight edge. Always be sure to clean off your stencils if you have non-cardstock stencils, and all your tools so that
nothing dries on them. So I’m gonna continue
to use these stencils that I created earlier
by die cutting cardstock, and apply transfer gel over the opening, and then use my straight
edge to make a smooth swipe across it and get nice even results. Now this will be white as it is wet, and then it turns clear as it dries. I thought I’d do one real
true stencil example. This is a Simon Says Stamp,
All My Heart Stencil. I did put the pixie
spray on the back of it, and then I’m applying
the transfer gel on top, and then I can wipe off the excess. Now I will say I’ve tried other products besides the transfer gel. That’s all that I have found works for the foiling technique,
and it works really well. And because you’re
doing it over a stencil, you actually get
dimension to your foiling, which is super cool. Okay, so now after I clean everything off, and let all these pieces dry, it’s time to do foiling, and
this gives amazing results. Let’s start with the
background we just created. I’ve let it dry completely,
and I’m going to apply Therm O Web Deco Foil, which I’m using for all
of today’s examples. This first one is the
Rainbow Shattered Deco Foil, which really has great results, and I’m putting it into a
piece of folded parchment with the stenciled side facing up, and the fancy side of the foil facing up. I then feed that, crease
first, through a laminator. I’ll link to the laminator that I use. Takes a few minutes for it to run through, but it applies heat and pressure. And look at the beautiful transfer that you get of that
foil onto any of the area where you applied the gel. It’s messy on the edges because
of how I did my stenciling, but that’s okay, I can
trim off the excess. And there you see the
beautiful foiled results, and it actually is raised a little bit because we used the transfer gel. I trimmed this down, and I
added it on to a black note card that I made from Hero Arts
pitch black cardstock, the best black cardstock,
that’s 4 1/4 by 4 1/4. On the center I used a
stacked I Love You die cut, and I left this card very simple, so that beautiful foiling would shine. Now I liked this foil
so much that I decided to use it again, this
time on the Hello You background that I made on black cardstock. After running it through my laminator, you can see the transfer that I get and it looks really
cool against the black. If you get any foil
where you don’t want it, you can just use a craft
knife or Mono Sand Eraser to remove it, and I’ll show
you that a little later. So I trimmed that down and glued it onto some gold shiny cardstock, and then onto a 4 1/4 by 5
1/2 inch white note card. I decided to keep this very simple since there’s so much sparkle and shine from that foil that we used. So here you can see how you can create a stencil out of any dies, and then apply the transfer gel over it, then the foil, and get great results. So here’s another example. This time I did the transfer gel over a stencil that I created
with Simon Says Stamp, Blooming Circle Die. And on top of that, I applied the Gina K
Sparkling Silver Foil, which is a favorite of mine. Here you can see how I got a little foil where I didn’t want it, and all I’m doing is just scraping that away gently and no one will ever know. So there you can see the dimensional foil that we get with this. Now to finish this card off, I use the new Simon Says
Stamp Leafy Frames Stamp Set, such a gorgeous set. And I thought that Always Here For You would fit perfectly in
the center of the wreath that we just created. After white heat embossing the sentiment, I’m using Gina K Connect
Glue to add Studio Katia midnight blue crystals to the center of my foiled flowers. I really like how the
blue tint of these gems goes with the Hero Arts Adriatic cardstock that I used on this card. So here’s a closer look
at the final result, and how beautiful that
shimmery silver foil is. Keep in mind there are many colors of foil and many different finishes. But I think the shimmery
silver is one that works on a variety of cards. You can also see here
how there’s a little bit of dimension to the foiling because we use the transfer gel over a stencil. Okay, my next example shows how to add different colors to your
foiling to get the look that you see here. Now in this case, I started
with white cardstock where I put the transfer
gel over a stencil I created with the Simon Says Stamp
Filagree Message Circle Die, which is a new favorite of mine. I put silver Deco Foil on top and ran it through my laminator. There you can see the
full results that we get. Now what I’m doing is
I’m using Copic markers to color the foil. Now, I will tell you you can use any kind of permanent marker, so sharpies would work for this too. You want to use the
darkest color you can use, because it ends up being
lighter on the foil. So I can be messy here
because I have a trick I’m gonna share with you. After I finish coloring all of the foil, I trim the piece down, it
doesn’t need to be so big, and I’m putting liquid
adhesive around the foiling. I then have another
piece of white cardstock that’s four by 5 1/4, where I use the same Simon Says Stamp Circle
Message Filagree Die. And I am going to position
this over my foiling, lining it up, so I hide
all of my messy coloring, and I can now once again
see the stitch detail that this die has to offer. And I like that that raised
foiling kind of fills in the openings on that
cardstock we put on top. Okay, I have another fun trick for you. This time it’s in adding
the sentiment onto the card. This is the Simon Says Stamp CZ designs Stop Drop Party Stamp Set, some fun playful sentiments in there. I chose one and I’m positioning
it onto my panel here in my Misti stamping tool. Now I wanted to make sure
I stamp this straight and that it looked nice
before I did it on my card. So here’s my trick, I
take some clear packaging, just some thin clear packaging
that I had in recycling, and I am inking up my
stamp with whatever ink I’m going to use, which
happens to be black ink, and I’m stamping it onto the packaging. And there I can see and
make sure it’s straight and centered and all
that before I go ahead and stamp it onto my paper. This is a trick that I
use quite often off-screen just to save time, but
I do think it’s great when you have sentiments like this one. Okay, now I’ve trimmed my panel down, and I’m putting on the
back of it some craft foam, this is white craft foam. This will just give it
nice even raised dimension, and it’s fast to do. And I’m gluing this onto
a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock note card. When I have bright colors like this, I often like to put that
card onto a fog note card. It kind of balances it out. It’s a nice soft gray color. So there you can see the
raised colorful foiling that we have that fill in
all those open die cut spots. I used a lot of intricate
Filagree type dies today, but you can do these techniques with whatever dies you may have. Here’s another example of
adding your own color to foil. This time I use the Simon Says
Stamp Blooming Circle Die. So I have my transfer gel on
this white cardstock piece, it’s kind of hard to see there, it’s face up towards the camera. And on top of this, I’m putting
Therm O Web Brutus Monroe Silver Sketch Deco Foil, putting that in my folded parchment and running it through my laminator, which provides the heat and the pressure. I then added color to
all of the foiled areas with my Copic markers as
I did in my last example. You can see I made quite a mess on it. That doesn’t matter, it doesn’t
take long to add that color. Then I am adding liquid adhesive
around the foiled areas. And I have this panel ready over here that I use the same die. And I stamped Hello in the center from the Simon Says Stamp
Leafy Frames Stamp Set. So you can see how I have
that raised colored foil that fills in the die
cut panel we put on top. I added a few white pearls
to the center of the flowers, and I trimmed my panel down
and put it onto a note card I made from Simon Says Stamp
Fog cardstock once again. It’s 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. I really like how I can
add different colors to my foil using permanent pens. Okay, my next example,
I wanted to show you that you can even add
stamping onto your background when you do this foiling technique. In this case, I once again
used the Simon Says Stamp Filagree Message Circle Die, and I applied the transfer
gel over the stencil that I made with that die, let it dry, then I put the deco foil in
the teal color on top of it, and then I ran it through my laminator. And that’s the piece
that you see on the left, just like I’ve done many
times in this video. On the right, I have a panel
that I cut with the same die. And on top of it I’m
putting a circle mask, just to mask off that center area. This is Simon Says Stamp
sea glass cardstock, and on top of it, I’m stamping with Simon Says Stamp sea glass ink the Simon Says stamp You
Matter To Me background stamp. So this will give a
nice tone on tone look. I use this sea glass color an awful lot. So I’m stamping the ink once again just to get a double stamp a darker color, removing the mask, and there
we have our front panel with some stamping on it. I like to do this stamping here instead of on top of my foil. So now I’m putting some adhesive
on the back of this panel, and then we will line it
up with our foiled piece. This will allow the foil
to fill in the open areas of our die cutting, and
we will be able to see the stitch details and our
stamping on the front panel. After adding this to a
note card, it’s time to add our sentiment to the center. I decided to use Simon Says
Stamp Sentiments Strips. There are two different
packs that you can get, and they’re filled with lots
of pre-printed sentiments. You just trim out the one you want, and you can add it to your card. Well, these are printed
with a laser jet printer. If you print with a laser jet printer, not anything else, just a laser jet, you can foil that printing. So I’m putting this in
between my parchment paper with foil on top, running
it through my laminator, and there we have a foiled sentiment. You can print your own sentiments using a laser jet printer if you have one, or you can just buy these sentiment strips that are printed for you,
and you can add foil. You do need a laminator
to give you the heat and the pressure to transfer that foil. And I use the same foil
that I used for the card that you see above. By the way, here’s a little
trick to add dimension behind your thin sentiment strips. What I like to do instead
of using a thin strip of craft foam is to cut
three strips of cardstock from a scrap cardstock
that are a little bit more narrow than our sentiment strip. I stack them all on the
back of the sentiment strip to give some strong dimension
to that thin little strip, and then we can add it onto our card. I find liquid adhesive
works really well for this, and allows you to make
sure you have it centered when you glue it down. So here’s the final card. I did add a few little
pearls around our foiling, and I stamped the same Simon Says stamp You Matter stamp on our matching envelope. Here’s another quick example that I did, where I used the Simon
Says Stamp Sentiment Strip. This time I used teal
foil on the sentiment, and you can see it has a shine to it. Now this card was made using
the Simon Says Stamp Filagree heart die, along with the
Therm O Web Rainbow Deco Foil. So this isn’t the shattered one, this is just regular rainbow foil, and it was done just
like the other examples. It is a smaller card, it’s 3 1/2 by 5 1/2. Next I wanted to show a quick example that this technique is
great for border dies too. We’re gonna do this
card here on the right. I have my transfer gel
on my white cardstock using the Simon Says
Stamp Filagree Border Die. On top of the dry gel, I have
put that rainbow shattered deco foil that I used earlier, put it in the folded parchment and ran it through my laminator. And there you can see the transfer of that beautiful rainbow, just gorgeous. I could have gotten a similar look using my Copic markers on silver foil, but boy, this makes it easy. I have some foil in areas I don’t want it, so I’m just using my craft knife and my sand eraser to scrape that away. But actually I ended up
deciding that I wanted to put another die cut panel on top, as we’ve been doing, since this border die gives faux stitching details. So you can either leave it
without the die cut panel on top, or if you have a
detailed die like this one, you can put the die cut panel on top and the foil is raised
and fills in the areas. I decided I really wanted
to keep this very simple, so I just added that same sentiment from the CZ design Simon Says Stamp stop drop and party stamp set. Now here’s a similar design. This time I used Hero
Arts Adriatic cardstock instead of white, and I used
Therm O Web Opal Deco Foil, which is just beautiful. The opal look is beautiful in real life, and it just doesn’t catch in the video, I apologize for that. I did apply the Opal Deco
Foil over our transfer gel, and I’m gonna go ahead
and line it up here. So you can see how that raised foiled area fills in that die cut panel like we did on the last example. However, if you do not have a laminator and you wanna have a similar look, you could just put adhesive on the back of your die cut panel, and tape onto that a piece of that foil. So I’m not actually foiling, I’m just putting the foil
behind the die cut opening, and that foil will show through. You can see its beautiful results. It shows nicely. I just happen to like the raised look of using the transfer
gel, and that it fills in the die cut openings. But you do have that option
if you don’t have a laminator. And again, check out
that other video I did where I show foiling without a laminator for similar techniques to that last one. But here I did use the
transfer gelled foiled piece, and have it behind our die cut panel, and I white heat embossed a
simple Hello There sentiment. Now that sentiment is from
this new Simon Says Stamp stamp set that has beautiful daisy images. And I’ll be using this
in a video very soon. Okay, my next two cards
show how you can use your little scraps of foil
that you have left over to create some foiled cards. Now in this case, I use
the Simon Says Stamp Filagree Butterfly Die. I created that stencil, applied
the transfer gel over it, let it dry. Now I have my folded parchment, and I have four pieces of scrap
foil that I had left over, I keep them all in a bowl together, and I’m putting the four
pieces over my transfer gel. It’s hard to see there, but you can overlap these foil pieces, and whatever is touching the gel is the color that will transfer. So I decided to put four
different colors down, those are all Gina K Shimmer Deco Foils, which are incredible. Ran that through my laminator, and here is the results. I did do a die cut
panel that I put on top, so I got my little stitch details, and I added a silver
foiled sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp to the center. Very simple but because I
used four different colors of shimmer deco foil, it
has a lot of interest to it. And by the way, Therm
O Web makes the Gina K and Brutus Monroe Deco Foils. So they’re all from Therm
O Web, and great quality. Okay, here’s another example
where I used different little tiny scraps of
foil that I had left over. For this one, I used
the die that coordinates with the Simon Says Stamp stamp set. So you can see the Happy
Birthday over there. I had die cut that from
cardstock like earlier, and I used it as a stencil
to put the transfer gel down. Once it was dry, I have tiny little scraps of foil left over here,
and I’m putting a different piece of foil on each letter. You can kinda see the letters there. This took a little bit
of time and patience, because I did accidentally
mess them all up when I folded my parchment, but if you’re careful,
you can keep them still, run them through your laminator, and the foil will transfer
onto all of those letters. And I just really liked the look of that. So I did trim that down,
added it onto a piece of black cardstock, and then
on to a Simon Says Stamp Fog note card that I
stamped the Simon Says Stamp Circle Doodle stamp, just for a little bit of interest on the background. I decided to not add anything else to this to allow those beautiful
little scraps of foil to shine. Okay, my next two
examples show another way to do foil die cutting. In this case, my background, the flower, was done how I showed you before. But see that gold circle? For that one I used a fun
product from Therm O Web that is toner sheets,
pre-printed toner sheets. Now the ones that I have
don’t have sticky on the back. They do sell a peel and stick toner sheet, which I wish I had,
because when you die cut it and foil it, all you have to do is peel the back off and add it to your card. Well, I die cut a circle
from the toner sheet, that’s what you see here, and
I put some gold foil on top. I’m running that through my
laminator just like before, and that foil transfers onto our die cut. So I just created a simple
circle foil die cut, but you could create a die
cut from any die you have and do foiling on it. Now here I did create a background using the Simon Says
Stamp Filagree Flower Die. I had foiled over my
transfer gel with silver foil and I colored it with Copic markers. So that’s how I created that background, just like I showed you earlier. But I added my foil circle
die cut to the center, along with a sentiment from
the Daisy Bouquet Stamp Set. So you can see how the foil is both shiny when you use the transfer
gel or the toner sheets. Now my last example shows
using those toner sheets, once again, to create a foiled die cut. This shows that you can
do this with pretty much any die that you may have including intricate sentiments like this one. So I used the Simon Says Stamp
You’re Doing Awesome die, and die cut it from the toner sheet. I’m adding a little scrap of that rainbow shatter foil on top. I’ll put it in the folded parchment and run it through my heated laminator. When it comes out, I’ll have that foil covering that entire die cut. It’s just beautiful. Now I kept this card pretty simple. I stamped the Simon Says Stamp Circle Doodle Background die with
Simon Says Stamp Fog ink, and then I just glued my
little die cut on top. Remember there is a toner
sheet with the peel and stick, so all you would have to do is
peel it off and stick it on. I just don’t happen to have that, so I use liquid glue to add my die cut. I also put a few little
colorful gems around it, but I kept it simple so that shimmer and shine of the foil die cut would show. So those are a couple different ways to do foil die cutting. Again, check out that
other video for more ideas. I know that this requires
specific products to do these techniques, such as the transfer gel
and the toner sheets, but I think it’s worth it
if you want to get more out of your foiling techniques and the dies that you may have. So just another fun way
to use these products. If you’re interested in any of them, they are linked below, so
you can check them out. In the middle are a
couple other foil videos for you to watch. I appreciate the time that
you spent with me once again, and we’ll see you again very soon. And by the way, my next video will show foiling with stamping. See you then.

  • love your videos, thanks for all the hard work you do. just ordered transfer gel. can't went till it gets here

  • Beautiful cards!! Got a question- can you use this with layering stencils? Or would applying the second layer and the heat the second time mess everything up? Have you tried that at all?

  • Dear Jennifer, I love that little giggle in the middle of your video! I have so much fun with all your techniques and your giggle made me laugh! Thank you so much for all you do!!! Off to play!

  • My Lord girl, you have to be the most INTELLIGENT crafter in our industry….beYOUtiful cards and as always, thanks for sharing, Jennifer!

  • GREAT!!! Thank you for your excellent quality video, and all the tips, tricks and ideas that you pack into it!

  • I just bought Thermo Web Transfer Gel but haven't used it yet. Does it say on the jar what heat setting to use on your laminator – or do you have a setting you have found works best?

  • Thank you very much. I love these techniques. Your mind works in ways that just blow my mind. Creative is not strong enough to describe you.

  • Love all these ideas. Time for me to use up my foil stash. Love the coloring over the silver foil. Thanks so much.

  • Wow!!!! Another 'over the top' amazing set of breathtaking cards. You truly outdid yourself with these breathtaking cards. I love the foil-look of these cards and these are all beautiful. Thank you for so many wonderful ideas/examples.

  • I’d think a plastic kitchen bench scraper (used for dough) would work for scraping stencil gel, too. Just don’t use it for food. You could find one in most kitchen stores or probably Walmart.

  • This is one of my favorite videos of ALL time from you!!! Thank you, thank you for sharing your immense talent!

  • Jennifer I watched your video before I went to bed last night and it BLEW MY MIND!! So beautiful, and I have all of the supplies!! Yay, doing a happy dance and can't wait to get home from work so I can play in my craft room. My mind was spinning and I couldn't get to sleep for a while. Thanks for the new foil technique!!!

  • Jennifer, I love watching your videos. You are so creative! Thank you for sharing all of these great techniques with us!

  • Again, lots of great tips, thanks Jennifer!
    I have two questions. 1. Why were you laughing when you applied ink to the "You matter to me" background stamp? Was it because you "flashed" the lid? I thought that was amusing. 🙂
    2. Can you run the paper with transfer gel more than once through the laminator? For example, can you cover up a part of the gel with foil, run it, then cover another part with another foil, and run again?
    Anyway, my favorite card is the one with the opal foil. It is truly gorgeous!

  • These are beautiful cards. I am anxious to do some of them with some of the dies I have. Also, on the toner sheets that do not have sticky on back, couldn't you use double sided tape on the back before you cut out the dies and then you can just peel of the back and you have the sticky to lay on the card. I just love your videos. You explain what you are doing so it is easy for anyone to do the techniques. I could watch a different video at least several times a week.

  • Wow, great tips & techniques. BTW, my husband loves your voice! He says of all the videos I watch (he listens), yours are the best because of your voice overs! 🥰

  • Thank you for another new way to make cards! They are so thoughtful and lovely. As always, I think you are an amazing and blessed lady.

  • You have to be THE MOST PATIENT METICULOUS crafter I’ve ever seen. Learning this is WAY beyond my abilities or understanding. Really beautiful items. They turned out perfect!

  • It took me over an hr to get thru this videao bc you stuffed it with so much info I wanted to remember! Thanks to you, I am now ready to begin my 1st foiling today! With your thorough teaching spread out among so many videos, I'm sure I'll do just fine.

  • I use the magical GLAD Press n Seal that Jennifer's husband invented (I know, right) to hold my die cuts, instead of purple tape. I recently made several posters for a party using text die cuts, and it would have taken forever to get them lined up and glued down. Tape down a sheet of Press n Seal sticky side up. Once you have all of your die cuts arranged how you like (backwards, of course) you can glue everything all at once and don't get glue on your fingers!!! PLUS, because the Press n Seal does just that, everything is held down and won't curl or warp while it's drying. It releases from cardstock AND paper beautifully, without leaving residue. I'll tell you, that stuff is genius. I don't use it in the kitchen though😉

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve been suffering from a serious lack of mojo lately and after this video I’m so freaking excited about doing this technique! I aways head to your channel for inspiration, and am never disappointed! I always learn something new! You’re pretty darn amazing!♥️♥️
