Here’s another installment in: “Learn From My Mistakes!”
I love my clear stamps – easy to use and fabulous, uniform storage. If you’ve been here for long you know how much I love this stamp set, Stampin’ Up! Summer Silhouette. You can see samples here. Notice the number on the front bottom of the case – 9!
So several days after I had started stamping with this set I was putting it away and I counted my stamps. A good practice I have had since the beginning of my stamping days. Hmmmm – 8. I counted again. 8 And again. 8
So I started comparing the cover picture with the stamps and I discovered I was missing………the stem!
Apparently, when I popped the rubber out of their sheet and put the stickers on, I totally missed the stem and I guess I….gasp…threw it away!!! Ugh!!!
I have found a remedy though. When I’ve needed a stem I’ve turned the long stemmed flower upside down and stamped the end of the stem.
So the moral of the story: ALWAYS check and count your stamps when you assemble them the first time!
Hoping for your Stamping Success!
