Very Vintage Labels No. 1 (Nestie friendly)
Another stamp set designed to co-ordinate with the Spellbinders label dies, I have dedicated a whole set to the Labels 1 dies. I have used the most popular sizes of die, sizes I felt I could get most use from, as bases for my designs. I love how these stamps help me get even more from my huge collection of dies!! With this set you can make endless tags and decorative die cuts for cards, scrapping and more.
The top left hand image shows 4 concentric dotted shapes, this is one stamp but each border is easily inked up individually or in pairs to give a neat border for your die cut shape. See my blog for more on this.
I have designed this stamp to contain 4 different sized frames as a space saving alternative to 4 separate frame stamps. Also the fact that the 4 frames are together gives the stamp added stability and durability. I find the little dew drop inks very good for inking the borders separately, tho it is just as easy to wipe away any unwanted ink before stamping.
In the top right, you can see another double frame stamp, either ink up both or a single border depending on your project.
A selection of ‘tag shoulders’ and ornaments compliments the set.
I recommend stamping first and then die cutting, securing your die in the correct position over the stamped image with a little tape to prevent it slipping whilst going through your die cutting machine.
Again, you might want to check out my blog for how to use those wee odd shaped stamps I’m calling ‘tag shoulders’!! lol, have fun
