Today I thought that I would show you how I use my DIY Stampamajig for positioning stamps when the wooden block obscures just where you are stamping.
I use the corner of a Nestie pack, with the turned up edge intact so that it doesn't slip under the 4 pieces of Jumbo Lego, constructed into a right angle.
I place the piece of acetate packaging in the corner of the lego and stamp onto it using Stazon with the stamp snugly in the right angle.
I then take the piece of acetate and place it accurately over the previously stamped image, in this case the base of the house.
Then I put the lego back into its previous position and carefully (without moving the lego or the cardstock) remove the acetate.
I then stamp the image onto the card, again with the stamp snugly in the corner of the Lego.
This is the card I made for the Saturday Challenge which asks for monochrome plus white.
I tried a bit of an experiment with the embossing. I used a Nellies die, which is slightly thicker than Nesties and has made a very deep impression, almost to the point of cutting through the card... but not quite. My tan mat was squished into the crevices of my Cuttlebug B plate and had to be gently extracted, but still seems to be intact.
If you want to know the method I use for embossing onto the front of a card, just say and I'll show you how I do that!
Well this was what was on my desk this morning, if you would like to see more craft spaces, head on over to Julia's blog... there's a permanent link on my sidebar!
Have a great day!
