Are you need of a Graduation card?
Try this card on for size.
One in Baja Breeze:
Or Raspberry Ripple:
The Graduation set is Long Retired (Tassel Time) but the Congratulations stamp is from one of my Absolute favorite stamp sets-Delightful Dozen-(w) #122650 $32.95, (c) #122652 $24.95. You are in luck for a New Graduation set-Pure Gumption on page 143. I used Basic Gray in ink and Card stock for both samples.
I was inspired by a picture in the new Catalog (page 142) and realized that I haven't used my Thing-a-ma-jig (#101049 $11.95) in awhile. If you have not used this before or need a reminder-here are a few pics for you:
Place the rough side down-glossy side up-easier to clean. Place the sheet against the T-bar. This works for all of You left handed stampers as well, just put the plastic on the other side. My examples are for the Right-handed. ;0)
Place your stamp into the right side of the T-bar and slide it down and stamp the plastic sheet.
After you stamped onto the plastic, lift stamp off, move your plastic sheet onto the card stock and place where you are about to stamp.
Once you have the spot you need to stamp-place the bar against the plastic to line up, move the plastic, ink stamp and then line up the stamp against the T-bar and stamp.
Now remove the T-bar and stamp and you should have the perfect stamped card. Perfect placement Every Time! It also helps too if you only stamped half of the image and need to re-ink it. However-I will tell you, with our wonderful new ink pads, you may not have that problem anymore. YEA!!! So-if you have this tool, dig it out of your tool drawer and give it a go. If you don't have one-You need to buy one. I have a special right now-place an order with me by contacting me directly by email-of $50 or more and get a Free Catalog AND a New Ink Pad of your Choice. I will place your order for you by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or you can call me (#262-374-0219-Central standard time during hours of 9AM-10PM).
ENJOY! and stamp something Today!
