Tightwad Tip

I have a few oversized stamps that require using a large acrylic block.  I purchased one, it was really expensive and it's heavy and awkward to handle.  It often slips out of my hand smudging the image.

A friend on Facebook shared this hint with me and it works great!

Use your Cuttlebug "C" plate for your stamp block!  It's thinner than the regular acrylic blocks designed for stamps, much lighter and easier to handle.  Wish I'd known about this before I spent all that money!

This stamp is 4 1/2 x 5 3/4 and there's plenty of room left around it to grip the plate firmly.  And, yes, I did clean the stamp! LOL!  The white SU craft ink has stained the rubber. Grrr.....
