i got to thinking, most people just have their paper and just go head and stamp the image, easy peasy no fuss. i have been asked many time so here you go! If you used the handy foam insert that comes with ALL of our CTMH stamps under your paper that your stamping, the image will become much crisper. this work very well with the large surface stamps.
here is what i do to get that perfect crystal clear image
1. place the foam under the paper your stamping
2. put the stamp on my CLEAN acrylic block (spritz and scrubber)
3. tap, tap, twist, twist, tap tap the stamp on the ink stamp pad
4. place the stamp on the paper stright down..DONT rock it.
5. peel it off and wow!! perfect!
DONT forget to season ALL your stampes before using. the instructions for that is included with all your CTMH stamp sets or just ask me and i can let you know.

September is National Stamping Month!!!
im ordering that right now, i cant wait!!
From August 15th to September 30th 2012.
Ok back to the tippy!
today tippy is about our wonderful My Acrylic stamps. you know that wonderful foam piece that comes with every stamp set..even the wee little petite perks (ask me how to get the fall/winter 2012 one) comes with one.
Place it under your paper that your going to be stamping, by using the thin piece of foam it will make all your stamped images crisp and clear. never rock your stamp back and forth it will blur your image, just press down firmly :)
do you have a tip to share? email it or post in the comments. thanks and we will see you all soon.

throw them away after a little while, keep them until your drawer is busting at the seams. We kept them for a little while..then out in the blue bin for recyling.
Not anymore, let me show you how.
A very nice tip i found on the web (cant remember where, sorry), take each card you got, hole puch it once, twice or my favorite 3 time down one side. take loose binder rings and put on in each hole. Then when ever you receive a new card, hole punch it and there you have a table book for all to enjoy and you get to perserve your memories.
when your finished yours, take a picture..send them to me and i can post them!
you can find these in any office supply place or you can buy them from me for $2.00 (plus shipping) i will send you some nice ribbon to tie on the rings for embellishments.
got a tip you want to share, write in and i can post them for you!
