Friends Card


Here is a card I made the other night. I must admit - I'm just getting into the wonderful world of stamps. I've had some for a while but never really used them much or have done much with them. I am going to blog hop and watch some YouTube Tutorials to learn more. Also I hope to go to a Close To My Heart Event on Thursday...my first one! Anyhow, this card I was trying out some new "Clear" Stamps and probably could have done better with the ink but I figured...why waste/trash the design...so I went with it.

Sometimes new clear stamps resist the first inking. You can take a very fine grit sandpaper and LIGHTLY rub the stamp surface, or you can use a white eraser and rub the stamp surface. You can also "test" the image first on scratch paper. Rubber stamps are good to go right away. Cute card!

Thanks for the tip!!!

This is really cute, I really like your layout! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Just as a note... some of the more "high" end clear stamps stamp perfectly. I have some from Verve Visual and you do not have to use sandpaper or eraser on them to get them to stamp clearly!
