SarahJane’s hints & tips
Sarah-Jane has some expert advice to help you get the most from your Stamp Platform
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.
