Today, I have a video tutorial to share with you for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday. I know a lot of us have dies for just about every stamp set that we own, but sometimes there is no die to coordinate with an image or sentiment. There may also be a time when you want to stamp a design, then cut it out as stamped. Fussy cutting is the easiest solution. Many do not like to fussy cut, also known has hand cut, because it is time consuming and requires some skill. Well, today I have some tips to help you fussy cut with ease.
Participate with me this week at Papertrey Ink on Nichole Heady’s blog. Make a project using the fussy cutting technique and enter to win a prize. All details are on her blog. Below, you can find photos of my projects and the actual YouTube video.
I also wanted to point out that on my personal YouTube channel, I’ve created a playlist of all my Papertrey Ink videos so that it will be an easy place to locate the tutorials I have done over the years. Make sure you subscribe because I have plans to post more videos this year!
I made two cards using this technique. During the last release, I made another card you can see HERE using the same technique. As an example of how you can use this technique to stamp a ‘scene’ then fussy cut it, see a card HERE.
Sometimes, you need that extra dimension and want that extra border around the stamped image. Fussy cutting lets you accomplish that aesthetic. See my video on how to create an even hand-cut stamped image.
This card is shared in the video.

Thanks so much for checking out my post. I hope you now find fussy cutting a bit less stressful and a whole lot easier.
