It's been a while. I've had some personal and personalized cards to catch up on - this will be one of them for the anniversary of our good friends back in NYS.
I know there are some terrific YouTube videos out there for reverse stamping with the Stamparatus, but I wanted to show you my way, although pretty amateurish - I don't do videos - no talent in that regard. Anyway, I'm going to provide you instructions on how to do the reverse stamping of these Nine Lives cats and then I will give you the particulars on the rest of the card. So, here we go - bear with me....

- Add a Silicone Mat as your top layer on your Stamparatus - Figure 1. Punch out a cat from some light colored scrap card stock - not black, and add to Stamparatus, as shown. This is your template..
- Line up your cat stamp in the punched opening and pick up with your Stamparatus plate - Figures 2 and 3.
- Ink your stamp with Memento ink and stamp in the cat opening - YES, you are transferring ink to the Silicone Mat - Figures 4 and 5. Check to be sure you can easily see the image on your Silicone Mat - if not, just add more ink and stamp again.
