Impression Obsession Video!

Ok, so you've seen those huge Mega Mount acrylic blocks in the store from Impression Obsession and are wondering how they work.  Well, we've got a video from the folks at IO to show you all the ins & outs! 

I am a HUGE fan of this acrylic block and use it with all of my stamps that are 3x4 and larger!  And if you are mass-producing cards, this baby is extremely handy :)  I get a nice clear stamped image every time... no missing parts in the middle like when I use a flat block.   Love love LOVE my IO Mega Mount :)

And don't forget to check out the other stamps in the store from IO... Fall & Christmas... just in time for holiday card giving!
