Owl & Monkey Minis!

Hello Ai fans!
I'm in love.  Yep, I'm completely smitten with the Ai Mini Front & Back dies from Art Impressions....  You've seen us using the stamps on the Ai blog since they debuted last spring, but it wasn't until recently, that I got my hands on the matching DIES.  And oh my goodness, these are the cutest little things - they cut like a dream, and are hands down the easiest dies that I've ever used.  (I'm going to gush about the dies a little longer, so bear with me and scroll down to see my cards!).  Here is how the Owl & Monkey Mini Dies (Sku#4538) come in the package:
You get both the front and back dies that match with the Owl & Monkey Mini Set (Sku#4405)

After stamping and colouring your images, just center the die over the image and secure with a piece of washi tape or other removable adhesive, and run it through your die cut machine.  See how easy it is to position them??

And here's the result... the cutest little owls & monkeys you'll ever see.

With a lot of dies, I find that there's a bit of guesswork involved as far as positioning goes - but not with these ones - it couldn't be easier to get it perfect every time.  Okay, time for some artwork!  My photos are a bit on the light side - this actually looks more like a navy night sky with a yellow moon behind him:

 And now for the little monkey:
All eight of the Mini Front & Back sets have matching dies - and all are available through the Art Impressions website here!  You'll want to start your collection asap (if you haven't already!).  Happy stamping everyone!

Those are very cute! And I've never thought of cutting the die out after, clever tip with the washi tape - thanks!
