Easy Stamping Using Dies Tutorial

PERFECT EVERY TIME!

For a much quicker way of stamping images and using dies to cut them out; follow these steps using a stamp positioner tool:

1. Using the die, cut a template
2. Position template in positioner tool.  I used washi tape for easy pull off of magnets.
3. Place stamp inside template
4. Close positioner and press to attach stamp to acrylic
5. Place the die cut piece inside the template.
6.  Ink up stamp image and press tool closed
7. Remove image from template
