Time Saving Cardmaking Hack

Stamping/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hey Stampers! Today I have a time saving cardmaking hack that will also save you money on your cardstock purchases. Interested? Read on!

The card on the bottom has a Whisper White cardstock layer that is substantially covered up by the Designer Series Paper.

My cardmaking “hack” for you is to punch or die-cut at least 2 pieces out of that white layer and then use those pieces for sentiments, like you see on the “smile” piece above. Anytime you have a layer that will be covered up with another layer, you can use this tip!

If you aren't going to use the punched or die-cut pieces right away, collect them in a container and you'll have different sizes in one place to grab whenever you need!

Cling Stamp Set – Mounting Tip

Stamping/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hello stampers! Today's topic is one I have struggled with so I'm guessing some of you might have as well. I want to share a couple of tips that have made mounting and using Stampin' Up!'s super awesome cling stamps easier for me.

First, have you ever had trouble putting the label on your stamp? No matter how carefully you “peel and stick” there's still a part of the label hanging off the stamp. Here's a solution that works for me. I'm using one of the adorable little zebra images from the Zany Zebras stamp set

First, take out a clear block that fits the stamp, the red rubber stamp itself, and the label sheet.

Then peel off half of the backing from the label (you'll see a line where the label backing is cut) and carefully pull up one corner of the label.

Continue to carefully pull away the entire label and put it on your clear block, cling (sticky) side down. Once on your block, remove the remainder of the white backing from the label.

Now you're ready to remove the thick, white backing from your rubber stamp and place it down over the label on the clear block.

Perfection! Notice how the label fits perfectly!

Once you have finished stamping, clean your stamp and remove from the block.

Now, my last tip. If you put a small piece of Washi Tape onto the cling side of the stamp before you store in the case, it will be much easier to take on and off your clear block.

If you found these tips helpful, I'd love to hear from you! Just leave me a comment below and thanks!
