Teaching an Old Salt to Stamp
The first video was on how to use these tools, and the different types of stamps (clear polymer, rubber, clear mount rubber), the advantages and disadvantages of each, and how to use SU wood mount and clear mount stamps.
The second video delved into ink types, the uses of each, how to open the Stampin' Up! ink pads, the different types of cardstock, and how to navigate the catalog.
These are the simple cards I made from demonstrating the techniques. When he's ready to take on more challenging techniques (Brads! Tying bows!), I'll make some more videos. I hope he's inspired by them. Next on the agenda - Dad choosing cardstock, ink and stamps!
