Having trouble stamping your greetings straight? I’ve got two tips for you.

  • Stamp them on a scrap piece of cardstock and either trim around them or use a punch as I’ve done here.
  • The Stamparatus stamp positioning tool is a fantastic product for precise stamping. When making repeated cards for any occasion, position your stamps on the plates, ink and press and you’ll have perfect placement every single time. See the Stamparatus in action in my video HERE.
