Today I'm sharing with you a card that I received from my friend Jeannie. She is new to stamping and has only attended two of my classes so far. Look at this beautiful and fun thank you card she sent me:
I just love how she blended the colors around the embossing folder and then matched the star stamps with the colors and the embossing folder. Jeannie doesn't use a stamp-a-ma-jig so yes, she stamped that image straight. If you don't know what I mean by a stamp-a-ma-jig, see it HERE. Basically it's a tool to help you stamp exactly where you want to stamp. In this case you would want the sentiment to be straight. I've seen her stamp in class and somehow she is able to stamp her sentiments straight with red rubber stamps. You can't see through the red rubber stamp like you can a photopolymer yet her stamped images are always straight. How does she do it? I don't know but just between you and me it's starting to get on my nerves a bit. Brand new to stamping and her images are straight without using a stamp-a-ma-jig. I've been stamping 10+ years and I still need it. Even when I'm using the Stamp-a-ma-jig I still manage to occasionally stamp the sentiment crooked. I'm considering taking her off my class invite list. (ha ha! joking of course).
I'm so impressed with her progress in such a short time. Of course she is a creative person already and an amazing quilter, but now I've got her hooked on stamping. This just goes to show you, anyone can have fun stamping. You may be looking at this and thinking you could never do that....yes you can. I can show you how if you attend one of my classes.
