    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Momsie wants to know: "I absolutely love the Stamp Shifting technique. Can it be done without a stamp positioner like you used? Would a Stamp-A-Ma-Jig work?"
    A: It would be more complicated with a free-standing positioner, but it could be done. You would need to shift and align the positioning sheet on the card each time - a transparent grid would help with getting each iteration lined up correctly.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Kathy has a tip for the Flip Flap Card tutorial: "Loved this! I used the word window punch for the tag to go through. Just had to punch it a little longer, but it worked fine."
