How to Make a Good Impression with Suzz

Suzz here back to share some basic tips and tricks on how to make a good impression while stamping. I spent some time filming a video covering a variety of topics for basic stamping. The video is a little long but you can feel free to jump ahead. I have bundled up much of my learning along the way from many different people into a video covering inking up stamps, re-inking and positioning your stamps.

I used a few different stamps to highlight the tips and techniques. I started with techniques showing you a few different ways to stamp a larger stamp and what works and doesn’t work as well. I used Hero Arts – Antique Flower Background, Hero Arts – OWH What a Guy!, Ranger Archival Inks – Black, Ranger Archival Ink – Aquamarine, Stampers Anonymous – Wild West, Hero Arts – Collage Friends, Memory Box Butterfly Darla Die, (The Chloe Die is the overlay for this die) Hero Arts Forever Cling Set, Hero Arts Dauber Bunch

Then I showed how to use the technique with a die cut image:

I showed up to stamp the bear and position the sentiment and how to fix the uneven stamping of the solid image:
