Storybook Friends is another set I bought right away when it first came out, but then never used in camp … until this month. With the “Oh, Baby!” theme, I just had to use this lamb. This image makes me say, “Little lamb, who made thee?” from the beautiful poem by William Blake.
If you have this set, you know the images have sentiments. I’m not a fan of cutting off the words — I’d rather omit them when I ink and stamp. Here’s how:
- Mask the words with a piece of transparent tape.
- Ink up the stamp.
- Remove the tape.
- Stamp the image.
This is my preferred method for omitting, particularly useful when using StazOn ink.
