To create this fabulous Father's Day/Dad card all you need is your favorite alpha stamp, some tags, paper, ink and I'll show you how to use a stamp-a-majig too!
What's a Stamp-a-ma-jig? It's a great tool to use for precision stamping, especially with rubber stamps on wood blocks. Because you can't see exactly where to position the stamp, it makes it difficult to get it perfect the 1st time. With a Stamp-a-ma-jig you can place that image perfectly every time!
Before we get started I wanted to give you a little tip on stamping on small pieces of paper such as tags. Use a bit of repositionable adhesive on the back of the tag and adhere it to your desk. It will stay in place while you stamp and one less thing to worry about.
Ok so let's get started with using the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
First, place the clear plastic piece and place it squarely in the corner of the positioner.
Next ink up your stamp and place it squarely in the corner of the positioner and then press down on to the clear plastic piece.
Remove your stamp to show the image on the clear plastic piece.
Now lay your stamped clear plastic piece over the place in which you want your final image.
Hold the stamped clear plastic piece firmly while you place the positioner squarely into the corner of the clear plastic piece.
Remove the stamped clear plastic piece while leaving the positioner. Be carefully not to move the positioner at this point.
Now you're ready to stamp. Ink your stamp again and then place it in the corner of the positioner. Keep your hand on your positioner so it doesn't move while you place your stamp and put pressure onto your paper.
Finally, remove your stamp and positioner and your final image should be in the perfect place! Thanks for joining me this week on the SCT blog!
