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
Unlike 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
Use double sided tape or adhesive of choice to attach unmounted rubber stamps to the blocks.
3. 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
