HELP!---rubber image is crooked on wood block!

Hi everyone! I hope you can help me here.........I recently purchased a stamp from HL and didnt notice that the rubber is placed crooked on the block. Is there a way to fix this? I wouldnt worry about it except that I need to make 50 cards with this stamp, so using the stamp-a-ma-jig would take up a lot of time, so I would like to be able to put it on the block straight and stamp away! TIA!! :0)

Put it in the microwave for 10 to 20 seconds. That should loosen up the adhesive and you should be able to peel it right up and reposition it. If it doesn't want to stick back down, rubber cement works very well.

I've had that happen - just put the whole thing in the microwave for about 15 seconds & it should be loose enough to reposition the stamp.
