Do you ever have problems with a larger image not stamping completely in the center? Whether its an image like this chevron oval from the Oh, Hello stamp set or one of Stampin' Up!'s large image stamps (pgs. 128-129 Annual Catalog) - you may be asking "How do I stamp a clean, complete large image?"
The answer? Grab your Stampin' Pierce Mat!
Though the Stampin' Pierce Mat is originally intended to work with our Paper Piercing Packs and the Paper Piercing technique - it is also a great help when stamping.
How To Stamp a Clean Image Using a Large Stamp:
Place your card stock on top of the Stampin' Pierce Mat and stamp. The foam mat will allow your card stock "to give" to your rubber stamp. This will encourage the two to "meet in the middle" and you will end up with a complete and clean large image! Woot!
An additional benefit to using the Stampin' Up! Stampin' Pierce Mat when you stamp - it allows you to achieve your stamped image using less pressure. A few of my clients use a Stampin' Pierce Mat when stamping due to arthritis or lack of hand strength.
My club members appreciated being reminded of this tip when they were creating this card during their February club class.
