Do you sometimes find it difficult to ink up your larger stamps? 

Try using a brayer for special-effects.  Another idea is to use it on your embossing folder prior to running your cardstock through the Big Shot.  By doing this the ink is disbursed throughout the embossing folder.                                                                 

* Includes handle and soft rubber attachment                           Brayer         
* Attachment dimensions 4-1/2” wide by 1-1/4” in diameter

Each week I will share with you products which you can purchase to help with your card making.  This week's focus is Stampin' Up!'s Undefined Carving Kit.

Have you ever wanted a stamp to call your own?  Have you wanted to design it?  What if I told you now you can? The Undefined Carving Kit gives you all of the tools you'll need to create your set of stamps.  You define the rubber stamp any way you want.

Included in the Stamp Carving Kit:          

* 2 carving tools                                                                                                   
* 3" x 4" rubber
* 3" x 4" foam
* 4 wood blocks (various sizes)                                    
* 1 Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker
* 3 postcards
* Instruction sheet
* Stamp image templates

 PRO TIP: Add a sheet of Clear-Mount Cling Foam to create your own clear-mount stamps. Mounting your stamps on the cling foam allows you to make stamps any size you want, not just what will fit on the blocks in the kit.
