Make sure to properly clean and dry you stamps before putting them away. I prefer to use Stampin' Mist and Stampin' Scrub from Stampin' Up! The mist cleans and conditions your stamps and using it in conjunction with the scrub makes sure that all the little crevices get clean as well. There are several other ways you can clean your stamps however, and they are:
Use a baby wipe- rub your stamp on a wipe to clean off any leftover ink.
Use a damp paper towel or old washcloth-much like the baby wipe, you can rub the stamp on these to clean any ink off of the stamp.
Run the stamp directly under the faucet-you can turn the water on and just let it run over the stamp to wash away the ink. This is not a good way to clean the stamp if you are using a permanent ink or if you are going to use the same stamp multiple times with different colored inks as you will be running to the sink every time you need to change colors.
I would love to hear your creative ideas on cleaning stamps, so please feel free to share! Remember, tomorrow is QA Wednesday. The 3 email questions that are answered on the blog page will receive a free card kit--complete with everything you need to make a stack of greeting cards, except for the stamps, so e-mail those stamping and/or Stampin' Up! related questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to my weekly stampin' technique that posts every Thursday, I am going to start adding some other weekly tidbits. They will be as follows:
Not so mundane Monday- will consist of one elaborate project based on a general theme for each month.
Tuesday Tips-will consist of general stamping tips and suggestions.
QA Wednesday- I will respond to 3 e-mail questions on the blog. If your question is picked to be answered on the blog, you’ll receive a free card kit (my choice). Question must be Stampin’ Up! related.
Freebie Friday-Will consist of Stampin’ Up! trivia questions. Of these questions, all answers will be found somewhere on one of my three sites. The first person to comment with the correct answer, will receive a FREE Stampin’ Write Marker--your choice--Plus, there will be questions to win larger prizes. For example, Guess how many buttons are in the jar for a chance to win a pack of getting started cardstock.
Simple Saturday- will consist of a very simple project that can be completed in 5 steps or less using only a few supplies.
You will start to see these over the next couple of weeks, and they will each be a weekly thing! If there is anything you'd like to see in addition to these or if there is something you'd like to see in place of one of these please feel free to let me know! Have a great day, and as always...
