Stitched Fancy Scalloped Heart Dies by Kat Scrappiness

6 reviews

Description

Kat Scrappiness custom dies are high-quality steel and are compatible with most die cutting machines!  These dies have stitch lines inside and outside of the cut line!  So not only does your die cut piece have stitch lines, but the negative space does as well!

Each set contains four dies that measure approximately:

  • 4 1/8" x 4 1/8"
  • 3" x 3"
  • 2 7/8" x 3"
  • 3/4" x 3/4"

KAT’S DIE CUTTING TIPS

No matter what die cutting machine you use, I suggest using one plate as the bottom plate and one as the top every time you die cut.  That way only one plate gets cut into.  In fact, I wrote on my plates with a black sharpie “TOP PLATE” and “BOTTOM PLATE” so I don’t’ mix them up.  Each time you die cut you will want to flip and reverse your plates to keep them from warping.  Warped plates do not cut well at all.

  1. Background dies and dies with straight edges should always be placed onto the plates at a slight angle (diagonal). This way when it goes into the machine, the corner goes in first and it will not only give you a better die cut, but it will also keep your die cutting machine good working order.
  2. When die cutting an intricate die, you will always want to use new, un-warped plates.
  3. ALWAYS cut your die with the cut side UP, especially with intricate dies. This will apply the most pressure from the rollers to the blade of the die and not to the back of it.
  4. If you are having trouble die cutting an intricate die, and you are using a Sizzix Big Shot, use the Sizzix Precision Plate. It’s a great tool for intricate dies.
  5. If your die is not cutting all the way through the paper and you’ve used all of the tips above, add a metal shim such as this one from Lawn Fawn.
  6. If you run a die through and it doesn’t cut well, before you add a shim, make sure to remove all of the paper outside of the die before you run It through again. It will help you get a cleaner cut on intricate dies.  (Thanks to my friend Gina Marie for this tip!)

    Stitched Fancy Scalloped Hearts

    I just love all the Stitched Fancy Scalloped sets - I have the heart, rectangle, circle, etc. I just LOVE them all. They are my 'go-to' dies for so many things. Well worth the money.

    Love these!

    I was a bit worried buying a brand with which I was unfamiliar, but I was pleasantly surprised! The dies make crisp clean cuts! I love the shape, too! This was a steal (in steel, LOL)!

    Gorgeous die!

    I live these dies. They cut cleanly and the scalloped edge is just different enough to make it stand out!
