NoelMignon Show and Tell Stamping Tutorial

Hello! Michelle Zerull here, to share a stamping tutorial that allows you to use your stamps in a new way. It's like getting additional stamps for free!

The Cherish Stamp Set by Heidi Swapp is included in your Show and Tell Daily Diary Kit. The set includes a darling stamp that says "I love your__________." That's a fun stamp to use! Now let me show you how to turn it into an "I love you" sentiment that can be used year-round.

  1.  Remove the "I love your ______" stamp from the sheet and place it on a clear acrylic block. Hint: If your don't have an acrylic block, you can place it on the bottom of a drinking glass or glass from a photo frame.) As long as the item is smooth and flat, your stamp will adhere.
  2.  Cover the letter "R" and the blank line with washi tape. I used the washi from the August 2015 "Country Life" Daily Diary Kit. Masking Tape will also work, but the tape needs to be removeable. Now ink your stamp with the tape STILL ON the stamp.
  3.  Carefully peel up the tape and dispose of it. The ink is now only on the "I love you" portion of the stamp.
  4.  Stamp the stamp onto a clean, dry paper. I used one of the tags included in the kit.
Now you have a little love note for your perfect someone.
Happy Stamping!
