How to Video: Clear Mount Blocks and a Shadow Card

Blessed Mother Shadow Card


I have had lots of question from customers lately asking how I mount my stamps onto the clear blocks. So, I made a video today showing how I mount the stamps as well as how to use the blocks as a shadow stamp.   If you have any questions on how to use a product, please contact me with your ideas for future videos. 

This card was really simple to make. I shadow stamped in Baja Breeze ink and than added a couple of images from the Blessed Mother stamp set with Early Espresso ink. I used the Tearing Edge along the side (remember to always tear towards yourself) and added some speckled ink with an Aqua Painter.

Don’t think it, ink it!

    thanks so much for the tutorial; I wasn’t aware about the glue & clear stamps; that’s a great tip!

    Thank you so much for the tutorial. I have shared this with all my customers. As I was getting frustrated myself. I could imagine how frustrated they were getting!!

    I think we have a more difficult time getting the stamps to “stick” because it is so dry here. The glue really makes a difference. Thanks for the comment!

    Loved the tutorial! I had no idea about the tombo, my ladies will be excited when I share that tip. We were all becoming frustrated with the clear mounted stamp. I like the card you made too. Thanks so much!
