Penny Black special day card

Hello again,

I have been having a clear out of some crafting materials that I no longer use this week, and I haven't spent much time crafting. So, instead of a new card, I'm going to share one I made a little while ago with a very cute Penny Black acrylic stamp. I am definitely converted to clear stamps now because they take up far less space than the wooden backed ones. Does anyone have any tips for getting my old rubber stamps off their wooden blocks so I can give them a new lease of life?



Materials
Card -Making Memories Kids Collection -Emma
Stamp - Penny Black - Hugs Clear set
HOTP Big brad and rub on
Marvy le Plume 11 pens used for water colouring.
Gems and ribbon from stash and a little glitter.

Hope you have a good weekend for the start of the World Cup. Comments are always appreciated.

  3. Yup, you microwave them off! Seriously !! I have NEVER done it as I love my woodies and display them as art, but I believe it's the way to go. This site might help you !http://fun2cricut.blogspot.com/2009/07/converting-wood-mounted-stamps-to-cling.html
