Perfect Sticker Placement on Clear Mount Stamps

Do you hate applying stickers to your clear mount stamps?  There is a BETTER way (sorry Stampin' Up!) to apply perfect stickers EVERY TIME.  Follow these easy steps for perfect placement of stickers.

Step 1:  DO NOT remove stamp from package

Step 2:  Remove liner from back of stamp 

Step 3:  Remove sticker from sheet but do not remove the liner that covers the adhesive. 

Step 4:  Remove half of the liner

Step 5:  Place sticker on the foam backing of the stamp, only applying pressure to the part that DOES NOT have adhesive exposed.  Once in place, apply pressure to the rest of the sticker.

 Step 6:  Remove remaining liner and apply pressure to adhere the rest of the sticker.

 
THERE YOU HAVE IT - SIX STEPS TO PERFECT PLACEMENT OF STICKERS!

Using Card Maps Series

On June 8 I will begin a new blog series titled "Using Card Maps".  On March 21, I posted the first in a long series of creating cards using card maps.

If you are having difficulty getting inspired, look for card maps and don't be afraid to experiment.  It is only paper (GASP).  I have a Pinterest Board called Card Maps, click HERE.

This is how I begin - I have a envelope filled with blank cardstock in an array of sizes.  I used inexpensive cardstock and each piece of paper has the measurement written on them. 
 
 
I begin with a blank canvas - THE CARD BASE.  I pull out different sizes to see which fits best for the design.
 
I then begin to start layering using pieces from my envelope.
