Today I'm going to share some truly AWESOME Glimmery News!!!
As you know I love, love, love Glimmer Paper and that sometimes when we use thinlets we are challenged with getting a good cut! And, we've all been waiting to get our hands on the 4 new Glimmer Papers so we could see if they work well with thinlets.
Well, the AWESOME NEWS is that the New GLIMMER PAPER is AWESOME!!! The backing is thinner and the cut is truly AWESOME...I"m going to show you pictures and also give you a good hint about "over" cutting...so check this out....
Here we are ready to cut (Magnetic platform, Precision Base Plate, Glimmer paper (face up), Die (face down), standard cutting pad)
Now, roll it through the Big Shot JUST ONE TIME. Did you know that sometimes the more you roll it through the Big Shot the harder it is to get out of the dies--sometimes tearing when you try to dig it out? So always run it through the least amount of times you can to avoid this catastrophe. Do you know how to tell if you have run it through enough? Turn the die over and look at the back--if you see good cuts through the backing like this (below) then you do not need to run it through again--in fact, you shouldn't run it through again so you won't empact they paper into the die. This is what a good cut looks like:
Now leave the paper in the die and use your Die Brush on the die-side:
Remove the paper from the die and you are ready to use in your project...
Here's a finished card using this same die---awesome, right?
*Only run the die through the Big Shot one time
*Check the back for a good cut
*Leave the paper in the thinlet/die to use the Die Bruch
*Use the Die Brush on the "die" side --not on the paper side
