TJ Inkspirations: Image within Image Stamp Positioning

Tuesday was January 1st and we released 16 new stamps to celebrate! If you missed it, you will receive 15% off those new stamps from now through Tuesday January 4th. Just add any of the new stamps to your shopping cart, and the discount will be applied automatically at checkout.

One of those new releases is a stamp set called Better with Coffee that was designed by Janine Tinklenberg from Mitten State Stamps exclusively for Technique Junkies.  The set includes a main image of a woman holding a coffee cup, plus 5 sentiments that were meant to be inserted into the image.  Today's video tutorial shows you how easy it is to use either a MISTI stamp positioner or an "old-style" stamp positioner to place the image within the image.

This may be basic for some - but it never hurts to watch other people do things, since you never know what you might pick up along the way. In any case, there are several pretty examples of the stamp set in the video - well worth watching just for those!

Here is a little sampling of the artwork from the set and video:

Don't forget to take advantage of the new stamp discount! Check out the new stamps here. Later this weekend I will put together a quick video of the new stamps as used by the TJ Design Team so you have a little weekend eye-candy!
I'll be heading to Phoenix soon...

Jeanne Streiff and I will be joining thousands of other industry professionals at the Creativation Tradeshow (formerly called CHA). We will be scoping out fun new products for the new year. 

I hope to stream live from the show floor on FaceBook, so be sure to be part of the TJ Facebook Group to watch what is new!  Join the group HERE.
