Most of you are familiar with Spellbinders, Quickutz and Marianne Designs, but have you tried cardmaking with Die-Namites dies?
Die-Namites Cutting Dies are chemically etched metal dies that are made from 100% steel and feature “SMALL LITTLE POKE HOLES” through out the die to help you get clean cuts and easily remove the paper die cut image from the die once your cut is done!!! These Die-Namite dies will work in all major Die-Cutting Machines such as the Cuttlebug,Sizzix Vagabond or Sizzix Big Shot,Spellbinders Grand Calibur,Lifestyle Crafts Evolution, and more!
These cutting Dies will cut through cardstock,different types of paper,fun foam,thin chipboard,wool blend felt,tissues paper,cotton,adhesive backed paper,cork sheets,acetate,fabric,wood venner paper,photo magnet sheets, and more!
Before we brought them on I had personally never heard of them, so I decided to try them out and let you know what I thought. I’m happy to say that I am really pleased with the ones I have purchased so far! They easily release the paper or cardstock I am using and they cut beautifully!
I created this card using the Die-Namites Twiggy Hedge (SKU# DN-0143) along with some of my Spellbinders dies. This particular die actually released the paper much easier than the Spellbinders without using wax paper, but then it could be that the other dies are a little more intricate and I did use wax paper with those.
