 Creative Ideas:

The thick lines of each sentiment stamp make a bold statement when embossed in black!  I embossed onto a strip of vellum, cut the ends to a "v," and backed it with a strip of white cardstock.  The sentiment is popped up with foam tape, and adhered to some fun triangle patterned paper!  I finished the card off with "you are" stamped onto a pink gradient strip (also popped up) and accented with an enamel dot.

These sentiments are large, and can really shine (literally!) with the addition of glitter!  I started by stamping the New York skyline (from Sketchy Cities America) in a grey ink to provide a subtle background.  Next, I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark ink and applied a stamp and bond powder.  This allowed me to sprinkle on some blue glitter (I used 3 different shades).  

I love taking a stamp and creating a background with it! In my card above, the "celebrate" stamp acts as part of the background and the sentiment!  I watered down some black ink so I could splatter it on the background as well.  I liked the panel so much, that I didn't want to cover it up too much - a simple glittered heart was the perfect accent!

 

A simple bright and colorful card from Tasnim. Here is a little tip: If the stamp impression doesn't work very well, you can always go back and color it in with a matching marker. On this card, the word friend was used as the focal image, and was embellished with some hand drawn leaf clusters. The word "hello" is from our Label Love set, which was stamped, trimmed and adhered to the card base.

 

Thanks for joining us here today!

    These focus posts are so awesome! It is great to see so many ideas of how to use a particular stamp set and some inspiration images. AND it’s all in one place! (rather than “hopping” blog to blog—which I also enjoy, but these posts feel so refreshing!).
