So, I tried a trick I was thinking about the other day and it worked like a charm! Simply ink up your stamp inking the area you want to stamp with. Don't worry about going over a bit, because it will not stamp on your paper, I promise!
Take a piece of scotch tape and cover up the inked area that you don't want to stamp on your paper. Be sure the tape is long enough to reach over to the wood block - or clear block if it's a clear mount or photopolymer stamp. You want to be sure the tape doesn't move.
Here it is in the color I actually used. I didn't know if you'd be able to see it, so made the sample in black too.
See how nice it stamps! You'd never know there was something missing. Great, right?
I filled in the word PIE with my Sophisticated Serifs alpha stamps. I love these stamps and wow, it worked perfect for this card.
The swirly stamp is from Snuggles and Smooches. I just love how they can be used for something other than "valentine's" as it was designed. I love to doodle, so these swirly stamps remind me of doodling!
Inside is "Happy Birthday" from Sale-a-Bration's Big Day.
Thank you for looking in today. See what stamps you can alter with a piece of tape. Share them with me and I'll be happy to post them for you!
