Partial Die-cutting (Beautiful Lily) Without the Die

Hello friends!

This is my 2nd post for the day. Due to time-sensitive, I pushed this post a bit sooner in case the supplies are out of stock.  Earlier this month, Simon Says Stamp and Altenew had a collaboration of a stamp and die set  called "Beautiful Lilies"

The die set sure makes everything easier with the technique "Partial Die-cutting" I used. At the time of release, I did say that it will sell out.... well, that time is here. I have a way of checking the quantities of the sets (it's my super power!!).

It is now indicating the stamp and die set is down to 37 ( edited at11:25am EST, Sept 18th). With this set, Simon Says Stamp had a huge order of around 600 (!!) and they do sell and the stamp set is now 15 sets left!


Top Tip to partial die-cutting without the die: I hand-drew a line with a rule where the line would be  cut off. I then used my paper trimmer and carefully cut through the line without touching the flower image. I then fussy cut the rest of the images.... Done!

 For the flower center, I applied the gold ink from Metallic watercolor. Not only it gives colors, it also adds the shine. I highly recommend this Metallic Watercolor Pan Set from Altenew.

FYI: The Pink Fresh Studio "Just Start" stamp set (edited at 11:30am Sept. 18th: 165 sets left) and Stamp/Die bundle (19 set left) are still available Please use the links below for your shopping. Much appreciated.  Now, please hurry if you like the stamp set alone. Thanks for stopping by!
