About four months ago I made a video for beginner stampers. When doing something for a long time – whether it’s a hobby or a job – we sometimes forget that we have to be taught terminology and technique and best practices. It’s the same with beginner stampers. When I use words like “dimensionals”, “bone folder”, “snips” I assume my viewers know what I’m talking about. That’s not always true.

Here’s a video that answers some questions for beginners and hopefully will help them have a more enjoyable experience. The first video is FAQs about Basics and Beyond.

Here’s another short video (Close-up Tips) that I made that shows a new method for assembling cling stamps. This new way is a game changer!! Please take a moment to subscribe to my YouTube channel while you’re there!
