Rubber Stamping 101- Quick Fix for a Mistake

Quickfix.blog-post-imageIt's just a fact of a stamper's life...there is a need for a quick fix for rubber stamping mistakes.  

For me, these often occur when recording a video or during a LIVE broadcast.  Of course, it does! But when that happens,  it's a great opportunity for me to share how I "fix" the mistake.

Let's take a look at today's tip in this video tutorial where I share one of my methods.  It's super easy but so helpful when in a hurry!

Click here to see this quick fix video on You Tube.

Here's another "fix" video that's been shared here on Ink and Inspirations recently.  Take a look HERE.

It seems I've been having more and more of these tips to share lately so please comment below if helpful or if there's a question you'd like to have answered! Thanks for stopping by today for this quick fix for rubber stampers!

Stampin' Up! Number of Years is Retiring!

Number-of-years-anniversary-card

Stampin' Up! Number of Years is retiring and it is great for making anniversary cards.  The companion to this set, Large Number Framelits,  is also retiring!

BIG occasions need BIG numbers. Choose an event—birthday, anniversary, new school year—and add a number for instant personalization. Buy it once, use it often. Great on its own or combined with images from other sets for different looks.

This is a Two-Step Stampin’ set. Combine individual stamps to build the final image you want in the colors you want.

Quantity: 29 photopolymer stamps

The bigger, the better when it comes to numbers. Create large die-cut numbers in seconds with Framelits dies and the Big Shot. Framelits’ open design allows you to place them where you want for precise cutting. Layer several die cuts or use them individually.

* 11 dies
* Largest image: 3/4" x 3-1/8"

Here is one of the anniversary cards that I made recently with these retiring Stampin' Up! products.  Let's take a look at the video.

Click here to see this anniversary card video tutorial on You Tube.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Pink Pirouette card stock is cut  5 1/5" x 8 1/2" and 5 1/4" x 4".
  • You'll need approximately 4" x 4" piece of Soft Sky for die cutting.
  • You'll need two pieces of Whisper White card stock: 4" x 4" for stamping and die cutting and 1/2" x 4" for stamping sentiment.
