Buffalo Check stamp + Making Every Day Bright
I just love how this project worked out with bright colors and bold images while still maintaining a nice amount of white space. While using the Buffalo Check stamp, I discovered a few tips I knew I would want to share with you today.
First tip: Try a test stamp on a piece of grid paper placed in your Stamparatus. This will give a look at exactly where the solid squares and empty spaces will land onto the cardstock. I prefer to have the cardstock edges covered with design and not be “open ended”, so placing the cardstock into the Stamparatus over the test stamp in the spot you desire, will save time and give the look you want on the first try.
Second tip: When a stamp is new to me, I often use it quite a bit to get the rubber in shape to stamp the image well. If a stamp is new and does not take the ink as you’f like to see it stamp up… there are a few things to do to help it along. Season the stamp by first applying a VersaMark stamp pad (clear ink) and allow it to dry a minute or two, and this will help the colored ink with better coverage on the rubber. In the same respect, rub the stamp on the palm of your hand and give it a “not so new” look and I have found that to help as well.

Finishing off this project, I added a really fun stamp set called Making Every Day Bright. It covers nearly every holiday I can think of and pairs with the new Christmas Bulb Builder Punch. That’s double duty for my crafting value on the punch! And the kids just love this punch too. Making the bulbs from colored cardstock is easy for their little hands.
