Welcome to my most recent post. I have just uploaded my new video to YouTube and I hope it gets lots of views. I wish I knew the formula for getting my videos to show in watch lists. Sigh!
I used a Cottage Cutz Harvest Owl die that I have had for years and have neglected of late. I teamed it with an owl made with the pieces punched from the Stampin Up! Owl Builder Punch. Together they make a really cute critter representation of the bond between mother and young!
The Harvest Owl is very intricate but when I bought it first it cut brilliantly, even in my hand-cranked Cuttlebug. But I made a HUGE (and expensive!) mistake when I used the wrong sandwich in my electronic eBosser and I damaged several of my dies when I let the cutting edges of the dies come into direct contact with the metal plate 😦 DON’T DO IT!!!
Fortunately, using the correct sandwich i.e. placing the metal plate under the magnetic shim, allows this gorgeous owl die to still cut well in the electronic cutter.
