The "Flower Shop Stamp Set" and the "Pansy Punch". What fun! But oops....
At first, I turned and turned and turned my stamp image until I finally had it lined up correctly. I kept thinking...there must be an easier way.....
Look at what I did:
I figured out which two petals belongs at the very top of the punch when lined up and cut a notch in each flower stamp as shown above. I make sure the notched area of my stamp is facing the very top of my clear block as shown below:
And make sure it is facing in the correct position on my cardstock when I stamp the image. Notice the notch is facing the top here:
So the punch lines up perfectly:
Perfectly punched flower:
I've seen other stampers use a Permanent Marker and place a dot on the rubber but that dot will be scrubbed away at some point when cleaning the stamp. I thought this would be more permanent. Oh and one last tidbit of information, no I don't use my clear labels on my stamps, they stick better without them!
