A Tricky Sticky Tip

Today I'm going to show you A Tricky Sticky Tip that was shared with us by one of my stampers, Barbara Howe. Barb, thanks very much for sharing this great tip!

Our tip is used when we create a card by stamping on separate pieces that make a whole picture and then separating them like this...


Here's the neat trick---the 4 pices of cardstock

Cut into 4

...are turned to the back side and a couple of pieces of washi tape are used to form one piece (note we don't have  washi tape in the catalog--dig out your old supplies--if you really don't have any then use removeable scotch tape)

...turn back to front side and stamp image--press firmly


...then gently pull off the washi tape and adhere to the next layer of cardstock

Pulled apartIt's a good tricky sticky technique that let's you get a perfectly stamped image with little effort.
