You Need This! Another Tip for Fixing Rubber Stamping Mistakes

About two weeks ago, I put an awful smudge on a Facebook LIVE project due to inky hands.  I finished the project and was given a bit of advice from a viewer for how to remove the smudge. 


"Use a sand eraser," she said. "You can find them on Amazon."   I have to admit that I didn't think I knew what a sand eraser was.


Turns out that I used a sand eraser in my younger years.  If you're a baby boomer (or, earlier), do you remember the erasers that were pink rubber on one end for pencil mistakes and the sandy gray end for ink mistakes?  Yep...that gray end is a sand eraser.  Who knew I would be using one in my "golden" years in my crafting and business?

Sand-eraser-fixLook at that! What a fix!  Of course, you have to rub gently and patiently but it definitely works like a charm!

If you'd like to see the recording of this project on Facebook, CLICK HERE.  And, for another quick fix for rubber stamping, CLICK HERE!

You can find this sand eraser on Amazon HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today for this quick fix for another rubber stamping mistake!
