something to share with you

hi Everyone,
Thought I would share one of my best ever buy`s . received this today from  oyster stamps  here new arrivals.
now these have been out a few years, never new how brilliant there were.
I don't know about you, but when I stamp with clear or rubber stamps, I never get it straight, some reason, I hoover with a clear stamping block, But always stamp cockeyed.. Does this ring a bell!!!

taken some quick photos, now normally I would stamp, then die cut, not anymore with this tool..
this is the results.



look how small this circle is, this is the first time I have used this stamp press,
will post some links to YouTube so you can watch it in action.
Please I am not trying to sell this product to you, just wanted to share, as I really think it is a fabulous
stamping aid.  
Fiskars  easy stamp press....   here   oyster stamps
thank you for your visit, sorry no card today  pam
