mini alphabet stamps
I purchased sets of mini alphabet stamps at my local Wal-Mart. I thought they would be great for adding script to my cards. However, I am finding it difficult to line the stamps up properly, especially for long words like "anniversary". These are on wooden blocks, so I can't see through to align them like I do with my clear stamps. In desperation, I laid down a wide strip of painter's tape, sticky side up. I lined up my stamps on it, then wrapped the excess back around the stamps to totally enclose them. This worked fairly well for short words, but was not rigid enough for the long words. Next time I am going to try to add a small strip of wood and see if it works better.
I would really appreciate any suggestions from anyone who has found a better way to use these stamps. Thank you so much
