Baby Powder on dies

Hello. I was trying to cut out some Sue Wilson flower dies, Delicate Daisies-Complete petals and open Petals.. I tried wax paper and dryer sheets to no avail.. The card kept sticking in the open petal dies.. A friend suggested using Baby Powder.. After getting it all over my clothes and coughing from the dust I have finally found an easy way to use it. It works perfectly and the card just falls out of the dies. I did find that if I am using a dark coloured Card that I had to cut the first one on white card or paper to get rid of any excess white powder..

I used a large paint brush and put the powder in a plastic container and just used the brush to dust the powder on the die and shook off any excess..

I finished the flowers by gluing them together and adding a pearl to the centre.. Now I will have to make a card to put them on Loz


PS. I was also sent this link to using plastic shopping bags .. I have not tried this yet but will have a go ...Loz

  7. I had never heard of baby powder - but am certainly going to try it. EK success has a "powder duster" that you use for embossing - might try that first. It is filled with baby powder. The flowers are very pretty.
