How my Mistake Can Help You!

Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Tuesday Tips

We've all had them. Those moments of spilling something all over our work surface.

I had one such moment recently and I think my mistake can help you.

I was in my craft room working on this month's technique class. I wasn't paying attention and didn't realize the top had loosened on my bottle of Stampin' Mist. You know, that liquid that cleans our rubber stamps? Well. I picked up the bottle by the top and it spilled all over my piercing mat which was close by.

I grabbed a paper towel to clean up the spill and wiped it across my mat…yuck! All the ink left behind from stamping projects quickly turned that paper towel a lovely shade of brown. But, I continued wiping and in a short time, my mat was clean! Whaddya know! If I hadn't spilled my Stampin' Mist I never would have this tip to pass on to you!

Here's a photo of the before and after of a couple of my mats.

I would recommend just using a small amount of your Stampin' Mist, not the entire bottle like I did!

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!
