How to NOT Lose Those Little Photopolymer Stamps

March 11, 2019

Have you ever been working on a card that uses more than one photopolymer image?  I have a tip for you today about how to not lose those little photopolymer stamps.

Often, after I’ve finished a card made with photopolymer stamps and I’m putting the stamps away, I have to search around my work space for a small stamp.  I think I’ve been very careful with keeping tabs on each stamp but……..ooops, one has escaped!

My tip is to use the largest clear block (F) and stick all stamp pieces on it before starting to stamp.  We all get so caught up in our designs that it’s hard to stop and do this first step.  It only took me one time losing a small but critical stamp image that it’s now my regular practice.

The Butterfly Gala stamp set, found on p. 35 of the 2019 Occasions Catalog, is a perfect example of lots of little photopolymer pieces.  There are two sizes of antennas and two sizes of the body (thorax) plus other little pieces.

Butterfly Gale Stamp Set + Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (and I see I neglected to give one little butterfly it’s antenna!)

 

I almost lost one of the antennas after making a set of Butterfly Gala birthday cards.  From that time forward I’ve been putting my little, and not so little, photopolymer images on the sturdy ‘F’ Clear Block and setting it down in my work area.  Perfect.  And that’s how to NOT lose those little photopolymer stamps.
