There are many ways to prepare a stamp for die cutting. One can cut first and then color with inks of your choice. However you can also color in by using foam pads and ink and coloring a whole page before die cutting. This way the colors can smudge all over the place and the dies will cut away all the unnecessary strokes. This set is from Heartfelt Creations. Colors are the new Harmony stamp pads from Crafters Companion.
