I like sharing this tip with anyone I hear groaning about fussy cutting. Here's my tip...Don't be fussy especially on stamps that have thick lines like Kind Koala.
Stamp an image to cut out and stamp a second image on your card where your cut image will be going. Cut out your image trying to be close to the line but it doesn't have to perfect. I left some white space shown in the first photo below so you can see what I mean.
After your image is cut out color the sides using the fat end of a Stampin' Write Marker in the same color as your stamped image (see second photo) Also fill in little spots that you didn't cut out like the spaces between the Koala's toes. I don't do toes.
On the third photo you can see the differnce between the side I colored and the top where I didn't. Once the piece is glued to the stamped image on the background the lines on the cut image blend right in. Scroll down to yesterday's post to see on of the samples using Kind Koala.
