JustRite Stampers with Dawn www.JustRiteStampers.com
Hi stampers! Today I am going to show you how I did this and I am using the JustRite do-it-yourself monogram stamps, fabulous, love it. This is so fabulous for those words that you do not have any stamps already made up, you can make you own and this is just an extra kit that they make and instead of the monogram, actual monogram machine, this is a hand stem one that you can do yourself. And this is the actual block that you get and when you flip it over you have all this tiny grooves in here and then the kit you are going to get the boarders and alphabets. And one great thing about JustRite stamps is they give you a lot of alphabets, especially on the little small letter set and then you also get the tweezers and this is the letters of the alphabet that I use for this monogram right here. And I will just give you a real crash course on how I did that but there is little tiny grooves on this rubber here, around the edge and on the inside.
And then what you are going to do is you are going to take your tweezers and you are going to pick up the letters with the tweezers and then you are just going to set that letter in between those grooves. And then you make your own words and then when you are done, then you just take the letter off and you put it back on your board so they stay in place. And this is sold separately too but it is a must have because the letters, they give you so many of the alphabet and the numbers and the symbols, all in this board. Like, they are not just giving you like two E’s and two A’s, they give you a lot and I actually decorated this stamp and the monogram. The self-inking one and I still have all this alphabets and everything left over.
So let me go ahead and show you how I did this right here. I am going to use the do-it-yourself stamper and I am going to use the Brilliant Blue ink and when you are also doing the stamp you want to make sure that this just right is the same size or the same side as your words, so you are just going to ink your stamp up and then I am going to stamp it on Whisper White and I am going to do that three times.
Okay, and this is what they would look like. And then I want to use my inch circle punch and I am going to punch the inside out where it says “You are invited”. I am going to do al three of them like that and then I am going to take my scallop punch and I will put it over top of 4 July at the top. Lining that up and then I am going to punch that out and then I am also going to do the games, barbecue and fireworks the exact same way. I will line that up with the scallop at the bottom and I do not know really why I did three, maybe you could just do two.
Okay, so I am going to take my scallop punch on where it says Happy Fourth of July and I am just going to trim that off that there and then I am going to do the barbecue, games and fireworks the same way. Now I am going to take one of this, just “You are invited” here and then I went ahead and stamped the star in the real red and I punched another scallop in the Brilliant Blue and I am going to add a dimensional to the back of my star. I am going to move it down a little bit; right there is good. Okay and I am going to balance this in between there right behind the star, like that. Then I am going to take the games, fireworks and barbecue, do the same thing as I did to the top and at the bottom. I can put right on the star if I want. Okay, and then I want to take a dimensional and put it on the back of “You are invited” and put that right in the center of my star. Okay and here is the finished one, all right.
And then I also now want to just give you a little glimpse of the self monogramming self ink machine here. This is the box that it comes in, it is beautiful, you are just going to pull this red string and the monogram machine is going to come out. You are going to pop this lid off and your self-inkers stamp is inside here, when you push down you got your images that, I already added the small letters too. But when you are doing this you want to lock that down, you are going to push the red on the side, the red buttons and it locks it in and then you just take your tweezers and your little alphabets and you make your words or whatever. And then I also put a border around mine which comes in the kit and then when you are done you are just going to push that center part down again and click the red and then you are ready.
And then it is self inking because there is a little ink cartridge in here and you can put whatever color you want. They sell extra’s of those and then you just push it in there and it is all ready to go. So when I am ready to stamp, let me show you, and this is where my monogram is, so I am just going to push down that easy. Love it. I think you guys want one too.
All right, thank you so much, we will see you later. Bye.
