Have you ever stamped a solid image and it looked a bit uneven or splotchy? Often it's caused by new rubber. Here's a simple TIP on how to get your solid images to stamp their best from the very start. Gently scuff your stamp rubber with a sanding block.
I did a quick before and after of a stamp that had never been used (right) and then scuffed with a sanding block and re-stamped. Got it?
TIP: Sanding blocks act like magic erasers for quick clean-up of a rough edge, too. I had a tiny imperfection on a punched circle which cleaned up neatly with a little friction from the blocks. TIP: Stampin' Up! offers 2 blocks for $3.50, an inexpensive and versatile craft investment.
