    Default Chloe's stamps/dies?

    Has anyone got the stamps/dies that work together (butterfly ring etc)? I just wondered how easy they are to work with? I'm a bit OCD with my crafting and if the stamps went 'off' the cut lines everything would just land up in the bin!

    I have several Clearly Besotted stamp and die sets and lining up the dies was a nightmare until I found the method that is described in the video on this blog post.

    1. Cut a mask with the die on a spare piece of card.
    2. Stamp the image.
    3. Place the mask over the image and tape to keep in position.
    4. Place the die over the image in the space created by mask and die cut.

    Works perfectly every time!

    Yes, I do that with my CB stamps/dies. It's just that I noticed Chloe cutting out the dies that stay in the card and then stamping and embossing over the top.

    I see what you mean Deefersmum. I have watched the programme again and it showed her stamping then cutting. It looks as if the cutting line of the butterflies and flowers on the outside of the die are on the edge which seemed to make it easier to match the stamped image. She also cut, then stamped and embossed because the embossing could be damaged if die cut after stamping.

    Hopefully, someone else will come along who has bought the set and give a definitive answer. I'm tempted to get the butterfly set myself.
