Make those images "STICK!"


LIP PALM
(my personal preference... Chap Stick)

That's the secret!
But it's no longer a secret!
SHARE this post with everyone you know
who has ever had
those sweet little rubber images
fall gracefully from their acrylic blocks.


Contrary to what some say about
simply "cleaning" the blocks,
my images still fall from blocks that are
spic and span.
This is primarily due to
the climate of my home location.

And "pressing hard" has
actually damaged some of my images.
After pressing and pressing,
some of my tiny images
have become a bit concave
which make it even more difficult
for them to cling to the acrylic blocks.


FINALLY, something that works...
EVERY TIME...
with EVERY STAMP...

LIP BALM!!!

Just add a tiny circle in the center
of the acrylic block
(maybe a few circles depending on
how large the stamp image is)
and press the "lip balmed" block
onto the rubber image.
Voila!
Stamp away!

You'r welcome :)

Have a blessed day and
thanks so much for visiting!

I will definitely try this. I've been suing temporary adhesive and it's a mess on the block. Thanks for sharing Kelly!
