If you are a clear-mount rubber stamp fan, there are two very cool additions to the Stampin' Up! 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog that may interest you. Today's video tutorial provides a demonstration and tips on the Clear-Mount Perfectly Placed Guides (#121785) and the Clear Block Cleaning Cloth (121779). I made ten of these 3 x 3 note cards without a "blooper" sentiment in the bunch!
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- Keep your clear blocks "cling-friendly" by using Dawn Dish Soap once a month (more often if they have been used a lot). Removing residue (including Stampin' Mist) is essential in order for clear-mount stamps to adhere properly to the blocks.
- Lining up stamps relies on good image placement. See my Clear Block Quick Tips Video
- The sweet scalloped note cards were created using the Bigz Scallop Squares Duo Die. Here's a previous video demonstration to show you the simple steps. Bonus . . . they fit in the Stampin' Up! 3/1/8" x 3 1/8" Mini Square Envelopes (107309)
- Floral Fillers stamp set offers a lovely pattern that coordinates with Stampin' Up! punches. Both the sentiment and cropped butterfly are from the set. See all Floral Filler stamp images below.
