Stampin Up Pun Fun & Sizzix Flip-it dies tips

I recently made this card for one of my stores that I sell to – it is such a fun card to make!!!

Using Stampin Up’s “Pun Fun” (now retired), I colored the rocket with water color pencils, fussy cut it then popped it up on the base. Using the stamp itself for revference, I hand drew all the little details in fine pointed black pen. Sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

The sizzix Flip-It die was sued to make the base & layers – I trimmed a second color (daffodil delight) down to fit.

**QUICK TIP ON HOW TO CORRECTLY USE THE SIZZIX FLIP-IT DIE**

Have you found that the die was cutting all the way through your card stock – or that the flip-it die cards were falling apart at the scored lines?! I did. It was heartbreaking to go through all the work to make the card just to have it fall apart. So I did some research:

 

  • Use ONE cutting plate and your CREASE pad!!!  Youtube video’s and other websites will tell you to use two standard cutting plates, but that second plate is what makes the difference.
    • Put your crease pad on the bottom, your Sizzix Flip-It die in the middle, then your card stock and your cutting plate on top.  That should fix any cutting through, or tearing of your scored folds.
