Kitchen Sink Stamps How-To

There have been a few comments on a SCS thread asking if the Kitchen Sink 3-Step Daisy set is hard to use. The answer is no!!! Play with it a little bit, and you won't have any trouble once you acquaint yourself with the stamps. But just to prove it, here are some pictures and a quick tutorial!

This is stamp #1, inked with Bisque Colorbox ink.Now I've taken the plastic sheet that comes in your package and laid it over my first stamped image. I've lined up the outer edges of the stamps and also used the corner guides that Maria provides on the plastic sheet. Have you ever used a Stamp-a-ma-jig? This is the very same principal, you just don't need the actual positioning tool because you can see through your clear block for exact placement. Before I remove the plastic sheet from my image, I pick up my block with stamp #2 (inked with a generic orange pigment ink) and get it turned to the right angle, and stamp.In the next picture, I've done the same thing with stamp #3, just having to turn the plastic sheet a quarter-turn to line up the images again. My stamp is inked with Colorbox Chianti ink. Pick up your stamp and get it turned to the right angle, and stamp!Then I've inked the tiny flower center with Colorbox Chestnut Roan ink, and just stamped in the middle. Voila'! A bee-yoo-tiful flower!!!
This is my very first time doing a tutorial, so I'm not sure my instructions are really clear! But I sure hope this helps anyone who is undecided about purchasing the set! Trust me, you'll love it!
Have a great day!

It's wonderful, Tammy! I just KNOW I'm going to be following it step by step as soon as my stamps get here! Thanks so much for doing this... I am one who likes PICTURES to make sure I've got it right, lol.

Hugs,

We have VERY similar taste in stamps! Good tips for the stamps. I had to practice a bit to get the flower lined up just so but with a little practice...
