Adjust Your Sails

A friend found me 3 folders of Just Rite Stamps and gave them to me for my birthday a little while back.
I've since discovered that the Just Rite company did away with the older style of stamps and went to cling stamps - no longer selling the wood blocks to mount the older style on.
However, all is not lost!
I found that by painting an extra clear block with Aileen's Tack it Over and Over glue you can simply stick the stamp to the front and use it like you would a cling stamp.
The other option would be to purchase stamp mount cling foam and make your stamps usable that way.
I chose the cheaper easier method!
 Supplies used:
  • Kraft Cardstock
  • Diamonds Embossing Folder (Sizzix)
  • By The Sea Stamp Set (Just Rite)
  • Thread Water Border Punch (Fiskars)

Such an elegant card! Great idea you came up with to be able to continue to use them! I haven't any of them as I am curious how hard they are to use (the ones with the little letters?
