Genius Die Cutting Hacks You Need To Try!

Hi friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day. Today, I am sharing some hacks and ideas to save time while die cutting while using some beautiful new dies from Altenew.

My Favorite hack is to cut your die out of white cardstock and color the different parts using ink pads. This saves so much time instead of running several colors through the die cutting machine and saves cardstock.

I also added Lunar Paste to the different pieces of the die cuts to make them stand out and shine. This is my favorite way to embellish a card with shine that won’t rub off on your fingers when dry!


Today, I am joining in an Altenew blog hop to celebrate their new release of beautiful stand-alone dies!

Hop Backwards to Nicole Watts blog or continue hopping along to Therese Calvird‘s blog. There is so much beautiful inspiration using these new dies!
