Large Stamp Tutorial

Hi Everyone!

Did you have a Happy Mother's Day? Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead.

Have you had trouble getting good images from large stamps? I must confess that I do, which is why I don't buy them. But during one of our Craft Nights, Debi did an impromtu demo for everyone to show them how she gets good images from her large stamps. She doesn't even put them on an acrylic block!

First, you ink up your stamp...

Here's what your stamp will look like when its inked up.

Now here's the trick... instead of putting the stamp on the paper, Debi puts the paper on the stamp!

Now rub, rub, rub! Make sure to hold the paper down so it doesn't move around...

Voila! Now all you have to do is trim the image down to the size you want.

Doesn't Debi make things look so easy? Maybe now I'll buy some of those large clings I've been eyeing! Thanks Debi!!
Just a reminder that all Hero Arts stamps are on coupon this week for 25% off for members. Limit two per coupon/person. Now that you know how to get good impressions from these large cling stamps- why not take advantage of the coupon too??
