Quick Crafting Tip - Die Cutting Glimmer Paper

 Detailed dies are product intricate cuts revealing beautiful designs.  

When Stampin' Up! introduced the Precision Base Plate it improved the way the die cutting process greatly...

except on glimmer paper. 

I was having a difficult time getting the detailed dies to cut through the thickness of this paper, even with repeated cranking. I'd turn the glimmer paper upside down and while that helped, it wasn't effective if the image wasn't mirrored.  

That all changed when I tried this!

Today's quick tip video will convince you that die cutting on glimmer paper can be easy, fast and effective!   And, with six (6) colors of glimmer paper to choose from you'll be one happy stamper!

I haven't used glimmer paper yet but I will be trying some in the Holiday season. I'ver been making cards only since last October. Thank you Lisa for your tips and ideas.

Hi Susan! Ohhh, glimmer paper is so beautiful. I love anything sparkly and this has my heart - big time! I was struggling with getting it to make a clean cut on one pass and this fixed that. It makes creating multiple die cuts so much faster and easier! Glad you found this helpful. Welcome to the card making frenzy. SO MUCH FUN!
