Challenge with Prize Giveaway - Tip Thurs 2/4 - Stamping PostageStampShape - CTMH - SendingLovePostage

Read all the way thru and then you will see info about a Challenge and a prize giveaway.


Welcome to Tip Thursday. I'm Melissa, nickname "Sunshine HoneyBee", an independent Close To My Heart CTMH Consultant/Maker, and I want to share some tips I have learned in a weekly tutorial named Tip on Thursday.

Please check out my CTMH site and order wonderful items like what I use. Please let me know if you found this helpful. If you know of any corrections that need to be made please let me know.

Today, is 2nd part of the CTMH Sending Love Postage stamp. If you missed part 1 then you can click here.

2nd part will cover a tip on stamping using negative cut. 


1. Using white cardstock this shows the use of the negative for stamping better. Place negative inside MISTI. 








2. Lay the stamp face down inside the negative area.









3. Lift the lid and the stamp will be ready to be inked. 








4. Ink the stamp. Place the cut out postqage stamp shape inside the negative (pink). You can repeat inking if not all areas have enough ink which is one of the wonderful things about the MISTI since the position keeps in place.








 5. Close the lid to ink. Repeat inking & stamping until you have inked to your satisfaction.












6. The stamping is done.
