 Happy Halloween!  Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  I'm giving out a TRICK that's sort of a treat! I have a quick picture tutorial on partial die-cutting that makes it easy to stretch your dies. (Please ignore my well-loved Big Shot sandwich plates!)

Step 1: stamp and color images for bookmark and line up Brainy Bookmarks die on bottom die cut sandwich plate.


Step 2: Add top die cut sandwich plate only over the portion you want to cut (I don't want to cut the top scallop edge just yet, so I'm leaving that un-sandwich'ed).

Step 3: Decide on desired length of bookmark. I didn't want mine to be quite as tall as the original bookmark height.


Step 4: Reposition the bookmark die to desired length, being sure to line up (nestle in) the edges of the die to previously cut edges and then secure in position with repositionable tape (3M Post It tape works great).


Step 5: Repeat Step 2, but this time you'll be cutting the top edge of the book mark instead of the bottom.


Step 6: Remove your re-sized bookmark and finish as you like.


I actually added a reverse side to mine, doing a little stamp surgery with stamps from Read Between the Lines to create a fun Halloween sentiment. To add  sturdiness to it, I also laminated the whole bookmark. HOWEVER, next time I would laminate it all BEFORE die cutting it for a more seamless look. 

I have one last trick for you today demonstrating how I omitted the 'k' in the book worm stamp to create my fun Halloween 'boo worm' bookmark.

Step 1: Using MISTI, stamp book and flower pot images in black ink.


Step 2: Use a black marker to fill in the 'k'.


Step 3: Reink and stamp the book and flower pot images again. I actually stamped them two more times. The MISTI keeps everything in position for easy repeated stamping.


Presto, magic, the 'k' has disappeared!

Are you ready to do more Trick or Treating! Don’t forget to leave a comment at each designers blog for your chance to win one or our 4 TREATS. Winners will be announced in a special blog post, Monday, Nov 2nd.

Cute!!! Love how you changed up the sentiment. Every time I see the MISTI in use, it makes me wish I had one. I'll just have to dream for now. : )

Maureen Hayes said...

Where to start, I loved all the tips you provided, from the help with the die cutting to how stretch you stamps by changing up that sentiment to make it BOO instead of book! The end result is so stinking cute, I would happily use it myself. Thank you for giving such great info that I can use in my everyday crafting. I love to learn new techniques and tricks and this hop is chock full,
