Stamp a stack of cards in minutes ...


Sometimes I really don't know how I get through all the tasks I have before me. This week has been especially busy yet I still needed to make my customer thank you gifts. I send cards and a small something to all my customers even those who don't use my hostess code don't miss out I send a little something. So what to do I really didn't have a lot of time ... then I had a brainwave ....

I decided to use pre made note cards GASP!! I hear you there but sometimes needs must. I was so glad I had purchased the Stampin' Up! notecards. Twenty in a pack pre cut, pre scored and with matching envelopes, brilliant !!.

I chose a stamp set I have just this week purchased. Floral Phrases Bought the bundle with the stamp and matching die before the offer ends on the 31st May. I used one of the brand new in colours named Fresh fig, to give my ladies a little sneak peek. So to speed up the process I simply strategically placed my stamps how I wanted them onto my biggest block this is block F which measures 6 x 4 3/4" perfect for large background stamps, but also perfect for stampin more than one stamp at a time. So carefully placing my stamps I could ink them all at once and then stamp. I then simply re inked and stamped the rest of the stack. I did a full 20 cards in literally a few minutes. What a life saver ! ... I shall remember this block for future cards when time is against me.

I did do a Youtube tutorial so you can see exactly what I did so please take a look, sit comfy and click the link below .. happy stamping xxx Amanda
