How To Create Intricate Die Cuts using the Bloomin Heart Thinlits Die, Precision Plate & Big Shot Brush Stampin Up UK

Today I am sharing with you a new tool available to all of you that love intricate Dies but hate the business of expelling all those pesky bits of cardstock that refuse to dislodge themselves from the die cut.
Does that sound familiar?
If so you must watch today's Free Video Tutorial that walks you through how to use a combination of using the Precision Plate & the Big Shot Brush, along with a shim here and there  with the assistance of a little wax paper

And what is more, it is incredibly simple and requires very little effort on your part

Tomorrow I will demonstrate how to use this die cut as a topper on a card

Watch the Video Below

 Here is the sandwich you will need to run through your big shot:
  • Big Shot Multipurpose Platform on Tab 2 (i.e. no tabs open)
  • Acrylic Cutting Plate
  • Card Stock
  • Wax Paper (wax food bags are fine or buy it by the roll)
  • Die (blades facing downward )
  • Stampin Up! Precision Plate
  • You may need to add some Shims (cardstock that is at lease the same size as your die. The need for this will depend on how new or old your Big Shot is)
  • Run this sandwich through your Big back and forth 4 or 5 times
  • Before removing the cardstock from the die, check the underside of the cardstock to ensure you have die cut all detail - if you haven't, carefully place back through your big shot again, adding an additional shim
  • Remove cardstock.
  • First, rap the back of the die cut by flicking your fingers to remove all really lose cardstock. 
  • Place your die cut face down on the foam mat that comes with the Big Shot Brush, and carefully roll the brush over the areas that still have cardstock in the die cut that needs to come out.
