I am so happy to say that I was selected as the Challenge winner over at Fantabulous Cricut!
I will be getting $50 worth of cuts from...
Now my problem is which ones to pick...hmmmmm....what to get........hmmmmmm!
Thanks so much.
I gently run an emery board over the top of new stamps to help them hold the ink better.
Ink on a new stamp tends to bead up and not make a crisp image.
I have found that the emery board takes that smooth finish off and helps make a crisper image.
I also stamp on a thin piece of foam like the sheets found in the craft store in the children's craft section.
I don't have alot of sentiment stamps so I use the internet to get words for my cards.
To add them to the card, I draft print them on scrap copy paper then, using the light from the window,
I center my cardstock piece over the printed sentiment and tape it lightly to the copy paper.
|Then I run the copy paper through my printer again with it on normal print (and color if wanted).|
The sentiment prints nicely on the cardstock and I don't have to purchase alot of sentiment stamps.
This is my favorite tip for card making. I have an endless amount of sentiments and quotes available to me.
I also save my favorites in a folder on my computer so I don't have to search for them when I want one.
(You can case this idea if you want. LOL)
Thanks for looking and I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day!
