Q&A

One of my customers asked me the other day, ” why when I stamp do I always get markers on the side of my image when I stamp?” Here are a few tips I gave her:
1. Make sure your stamp pad is inked up good but not to much.
2. Make sure your stamp is nice and clean.
3. You need to tap, tap, tap, not to hard on your stamp pad.
4. Then good even pressure when you stamp, but not to hard.
5. Try not to rock when you ink up the stamp and when you stamp on paper.
6. And don’t forget it takes practice.
ENJOY

Tip of the day

Have you ever needed a purple ink pad but don’t have one? Well here is a great idea, take a seal tight container and then take a paper towel and fold it in half twice. Take a blue and a red re-inker and add a gene rouse amount of each to the paper towel. Mix around with a pop cycle stick and you have a purple ink pad. The seal tight container will keep it moist for awhile.
ENJOY!
