SarahJane’s hints & tips

Sarah-Jane has some ex­pert ad­vice to help you get the most from your Stamp Plat­form

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Knowhow Stamping -

For easy align­ment, place the stamp where you want it on the card, close the lid and the stamp will stick to the lid. Then you can sim­ply ink and stamp.

Use the mea­sure­ments printed on the side and top edges of the plat­form to get the stamp po­si­tion per­fect every time.

This plat­form makes it so easy to stamp on tex­tured card as you can re-stamp an im­age in the same place as many times as needed to get a good im­pres­sion – great when stamp­ing onto wa­ter­colour card.

You can eas­ily make mul­ti­ples of the same card. This is per­fect for Christ­mas time or per­haps if you are mak­ing wed­ding in­vi­ta­tions.

If you have trou­ble pick­ing up the small mag­nets, add washi tape, cre­at­ing a tab, to make it eas­ier.

Some­times the card slips slightly when us­ing pho­topoly­mer stamps as they are slightly sticky, so dou­ble check the card stays tucked into the cor­ner be­fore ink­ing.

Keep a sheet of ac­etate close by for check­ing align­ment. Slide the ac­etate over the card, ink and stamp and then you can see where the im­age will be. If you are happy, re­move the ac­etate, ink and stamp again, onto the card.
