Several years back at Club Scrap retreat, Tricia introduced us to a stamping tool that until recently I forgot I had. It's called the Position it! What I remember most about this tool was Tricia saying "Don't google Position it! All kinds of websites pop up." So I was actually scared to google that when I rediscovered this tool. I did find the directions and YouTube video instruction so I was relieved. I forgot what an amazing tool this was and have been using it religiously to get my stamping straight. It does take some practice to get the hang of it and make it worth your while. I hate when I screw up the last bit of my card by stamping the sentiment crooked. Although this one has been discontinued, there are many similar ones out there.
What I really loved about this tool was the ability to add straight borders with one small stamps or created circles, ovals and a patterns. The little sprig stamp from Crewel & Unusual got my attention and thought that would make a great wreath with a quote in the center.
Start by securing your panel to the Position It! base.
Stamp your image on the clear plastic panel snug against the "L" shaped tool.
This will allow you to line up your image anywhere.
Place the clear plastic on your paper where you want your image.
Line up your black "L" shaped snug to the corner.
Remove plastic and stamp.
Here I have one last image to stamp to complete my wreath. You can see the image on the plastic
Here is how the stamping block fits snugly in the "L". Of course you would remove the plastic before stamping final image.
I added some flowers and colored with Copics.
I even stamped the quote on the clear plastic and lined it up so that I would get it centered.
Club Scrap papers, stamps, ribbon and wooden word. Queen & Co. pearls.
I wanted to let my wreath take center stage and speak for itself. I kept the background and embellishments simple.
The design was inspired by this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge.
