Wonderful tips – beautiful cards!
I found by removing the sticky mat that the platform and flip wheel is the perfect tool for stamping those big red rubber background stamps – we all have them, right?! I use a bit of repositionable tape on the back of my paper to hold it in place centered in the platform, position the stamp, and pick up with the wheel! Inking these big stamps can be tricky but with this tool, you can ink and repeat until perfect!
