I’m not so sure that I have a good “eye” to get stamped images alined, but I’m usually successful. (Of course, I have become skilled at disguising my mistakes, too!) But I wondered if drawing a penciled line would ensure a straight image on this card from last week.
See that line under the “congratulations”? Using a small, gridded quilting ruler, I penciled a line 3/4″ from the bottom of the card, then stamped the sentiment. Excellent! Then, making sure the ink was absolutely dry, I erased the line. (Make sure the eraser is clean so you don’t mess up your work. You can use the Adhesive Remover, the eraser on the end of a pencil or — my favorite — a retractable eraser.)
I thought my campers would like this. So in the project box I put the ruler, the pencil, and the eraser. And I think nearly every stamper just eyeballed it! This proves that I am fussier than most stampers — or you can substitute another word if you wish!
