SPELLBINDERS-Nestabilities Dies: Majestic Elements. These dies feature cutting; embossing and stenciling capabilities. Each set of dies nest in size approximately 1/4 inch larger than the previous die and will work with most die-cutting systems. This package contains Exquisite Circles: a set of six nested dies in a 10-1/2x 5-1/4 inch package. Imported.
Once I learned how to use these properly with my Big Shot, I've been thrilled to bits with all of the nestability dies.
Tips: For intricate dies like these rectangles, always use a chunk of wax paper between the die and the paper, it makes popping the cut-outs a breeze.
There is a tiny hole on the back of the die for each and every "well" on the die, using a pick to pop out the tiny bits is easy. Even easier with the wax paper.
It took a bit of experimentation to figure out the thickness of shim to use with these super slim dies. I use a metal sheet under the die on tab2 for cutting and a rubber mat on top of the paper on tab1 for embossing.
I use the thin-width green painters tape to hold the shim, die, wax paper, and paper in place when I need things lined up exactly. It doesn't effect the cutting of the die, comes off most papers easily [fibrous or thin papers should be tested first, like a mulberry or tissue paper], and stops things from jumping around from static cling.
Wiping all the surfaces, including the paper, with a dryer softener sheet also helps negate the static cling.
The easiest way to colour inside the die-cut shape is to leave it in the die itself while you chalk, paint or stamp on the center part. That way the edge of the die gives you a very clean line.
You can mix-n-match with other nestability dies as well. I like to use the largest rectangle of this set with a scalloped oval inside.
