Rock-A-blocks are in DA HOUSE and people said nevah to rock your stamps.. hmph

I am sooo ecstatic (sp?- or is it with an x? WHAT”S WRONG WITH ME??).. you have no idea.  I went absolutely BONKERS.. and I mean BONKERS.. and if anyone Re-HEALLY knows me, they have seen me BONKERS.. about this product

 These are called ROCKABLOCKS by Crafter’s Companion.  Saw them at CHA, ordered them immediately, FORCED them to get it to me ASAP, now I have them and actually almost sold them out before they got here.. LOL

They are a WONDERFUL quality.. very sturdy and come in perfect sizes for our stamps.  Most of all, the results are JUST AMAZING.  Total bella stamp of approval

 

 

 

 

 

 Here is a snapshot of how it works (these are not my hands.. I cheated a little.. at least I admitted it, no?)

 

 

 

 

 

1. The Blocks

The curved surfaceUnlike traditional stamp blocks, the Rock-a-Block system has a curved surface. There is a depth gauge or rail at the end of two of the edges to ensure that a consistent pressure is achieved.

2. Attach the Stamp to the Block

Attach the stamp to the block
Use double sided tape or adhesive of choice  to attach unmounted rubber stamps to the blocks.

3. Rock the Block

Rock the block
Ensure that the work surface is flat and level then ‘rock’ the block to stamp the image. Carefully use a rocking motion and apply firm pressure to ensure that the block does not slip or slide. Only rock the block once to avoid a ‘shadowing’ of the image.

4. The Finished Image

Carefully lift the block from the page and the finished stamped image should be clear and crisp.

**a coupla tips… ink should never get on the 2 side “rails” as that is what touches the paper.. you have to get used to the pressure placed on the block but the results are absolutely magical!! honest!.. Great for people who have arthritis or limited dexterity.. I LOOOOVE THIS (can you tell?)
Mwah to da sistahs who will put a little ROCK in their BLOCK

    Hi Em
    Finally a British innovation in stamping…we’re normally miles behind our North American friends. Congrats to you and Sara (Crafters Companion) for bringing these to the Bella Sistahhood!!!

    Another important element of interior design is the quality of the products and materials
    used. Once the clients have agreed to hire a designer,
    the designer will need to survey the area and take measurements.
    If a space is meant for office use or activities which require the abundance of
    light, a designer should focus more on providing
    the space with general and task lighting, and a little ambient lights to give it
    a cozy feel.
