I know you crafters understand when I tell you I’m anxious to get back to my paper and tools. I have an idea for an Easter card formulating in my mind, and it involves the Labeler Alphabet stamp set.
I posted on Facebook about this stamp set before I started my blog, so I thought it would be good to repeat my discovery here. If you aren’t familiar with it, this is what it looks like:
I love using the Labeler Alphabet, because I can create words for my cards that wouldn’t be available otherwise.
By trial and error, I came up with ways that make the stamp set easier to use.
I leave all of the letters in their neat, little rows on the clear plastic sheet. I turn the entire sheet of stamps onto the ink pad color of choice and gently press. I double press on top of the letters I’ll be using.
I carefully lift the sheet of stamps, and admire my cute little letters for a few seconds while they dry.
Stampin’ Up! has fast drying ink, so the letters are ready for the next step almost immediately. I use my Stampin’ Snips to cut rows; top, bottom, and sides of the letters I’ll be using.
The Labeler Alphabet allows you to arrange words vertically, horizontally, or purposely crooked. I’ve even popped the letters up on Mini Dimensionals. Here is a recent project where I glued them horizontally.
I’m still having a fun vacation. I was sitting courtside to watch my favorite player, Feliciano Lopez. Not bad, huh?
I hope my tips have been helpful for you who have this stamp set. If you’d like to order it, you can go to my online store by clicking the shop button. The Labeler Alphabet is number 141936.
Have a great day!
Brilliant – what a great idea!
That’s an awesome idea. Thanks for sharing! Lost a letter already from my set as it stuck to a piece of strap paper and lost forever.
Thanks, Narelle! I’ve had lost forever things show up.
SU, that is a great tip! It’s very time consuming to do each individual letter.
Thank you, Beth! I appreciate you commenting on my blog!
