A little tip...

The major benefit to My Acrylix stamps over rubber... of course...is that you can see through them and know exactly where you are stamping your image.
The other FUN benefit... is that you can easily manipulate them.

For instance... I made this card: 
The entire word/holly piece was one single stamp.  I could have stamped it all in one color- but don't you think the multi-color look is much nicer? 

Since you can see through our stamps- I could have easily inked the words and holly in different colors- but the berries would have been a little trickier since they are right in the middle of everything...sooooo...


I took my stamp...

And cut it apart.

I was able to ink the holly and berries seperately from the words.

Here is the finished panel.  I added some Red Glitz Glitter Gel over the red berries.  I like that I stamped the berries in red first so that wherever the glitz doesn't cover... still looks red.
Hope you enjoyed this little tip...  I'll have more fun tips coming up soon!
