Hero Digital Die Cuts

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd talk a little about the Digital Die Cuts that were just released in the Hero Arts Store.  These die cuts are for DIGITAL cutting machines. They are files that you load on your computer and then cut with a digital cutting machine.  The file types provided in each download die cut package are:
  • AI, JPG, PNG, SVG, DXF, GSD and STUDIO. 
Please check the software for your machine to see what file types are compatible, then load accordingly.

The Die Cut machines that I CAN suggest are:
  • Craft Robo
  • Silhouette
  • Wishblade
  • E-Craft
  • Pazzles
  • BossKut Gazzelle

The die cuts are sized to fit their corresponding Hero Arts stamp image to give you a detailed shape to cut out and stamp on.  Here is an example of a finished card. 


Here's how I did it....
  • Cut out the die of the Flower Wreath on Snow layering paper (white cardstock), with the Silhouette.
  • Using a stamp positioner, stamp the Flower Wreath image onto the shape. 
  • Color the image with pencils and assemble onto a card.

You can also color the die cuts with Distress Inks then stamp.  Here's a quick example.


If you have any questions I'm here for you. 

Thanks and Enjoy!!

These were taken away from the store? I was just looking to see what stamp sets have cuts because I was planning on purchasing some.
