--When using the new photopolymer stamps(clear plastic),
be sure to use a foam pad underneath the paper.
This will give the stamp some 'bounce' and give a cleaner print.
--When learning a new technique, check YOUTUBE to see if there is a video, watch it a few times before starting to stamp. I wanted to learn how to "3 step" stamp with tabs, so I found the video on the Stampin UP website (go to www.stampinup.com, go to store, find the stamp set, click on the video icon.) It greatly helped to see the stamp set 'in action'.
--Take a few minutes to browse through your stamp library, sometimes we forget about the 'oldies but goodies' that would be perfect for a craft project.
--If you need to make a number of the same card, such as for Christmas or Valentine's Day, stamp and color 4 or more images onto Whisper White paper, color, then copy the original on Whisper White paper (or any color) for the number of card needed. Be sure to save the original for another time. (Most printers have a copy mode.)
