Faux Mats for your Die CutsTutorial - ScrapMuch?

Hi there!

I have a quick and easy tutorial to share today (do you notice I say that a lot?).  I am big on quick and easy, and tend to shy away form anything messy.  But, I am working on something a little bit messy for a future tutorial.

Anyway,  have you ever wished your die cut element had just a little more oomph?   Well check this out.....

 Start with your die, paper and some ink.
It is hard to tell in this photo, but ink around your die, you will probably want some scrap paper under it.
 Now run it through  your die cutter as normal, and you will end up with this!

See, super easy and super cool.  Your die will clean up with a baby wipe or soap and water, whatever you usually use.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. This looks so cool - do you mean to actually ink the die itself! Fabulous! TFS

    1. Yes Karon, that is exactly what I did! I am sorry I wasn't clear enough.

  2. Great tip, thanks for sharing!
