Just Rite Stamper: Harmony Classic

It is Just Rite Stamper week at Stamper's Dream! All week long the design team will be sharing projects created using the stamps. Michelle is giving you a chance to win a Christmas Ensemble set and a Wooden III Handle. Visit her blog HERE to enter to win.

In case you have not used the Just Rite stamps, I wanted to share with you how they work. This is my first time using their product.
For this week, I worked with the Harmony Classic II stamper shown above and the Baby Ensemble set that works with the handle. There are several sets that work with this handle. Make sure that when you are shopping, that your handle can work with the ensemble you select. You don't have to use an ensemble, you can order a font. The font sets are individual letters in several sizes. I personally am in love with the font Brayton.
Here is a look at what stamps are in the Baby Ensemble. You can see that there are 6 inner stamps and 6 outside rings.

When you open the box, here is how they are stacked.
Here is what the front and back of an inner stamp looks like. The back of the stamp has raised lines that allow you to "click" the inner stamp into place on the wooden handle.
This is a close-up of the back of an outer ring stamp and where it clicks into the handle.
As you place the ring or inner stamp into the handle, gently click the stamp into place. Push all the way around the outside edge. You will be able to see when it is all the way in. Start with placing the outer ring first, it helps with placing the inner stamp evenly into the center of the handle.
Here you can see the outer ring and the inner stamp both in place in the handle. You are ready to stamp. I love that you can make the outer ring and the inner stamp different colors, and mix and match all the pieces.

I found that the oval fit perfectly inside one of my Nestabilities large oval dies (don't emboss, the stamp makes an edge). To make aligning the stamp easier, I found that turning the stamp as shown below helped my accurasy.
I hope that shows you a bit more about these great stamps. I have really enjoyed using them and look forward to getting more pieces. Stay tuned for the rest of the week. The team and I have some beautiful projects to share! I will be linking you up to the daily posters. Visit Michelle Rodger's and Denise Marzec's blogs for today and sign up to win here. thanks for stopping by!
