This weeks Make it Monday features using those tiny stamps that often get neglected to make a cluster of images in any shape you choose. Check out the awesome video tutorial by Lizzie Jones here. I just love how this techniques puts those little stamps in the limelight for once.
here. But I needed a masculine birthday card and I didn't want to copy her card exactly so thus the card/card set above was born.
I used the following Papertrey Ink stamps:
Spots and Dots (vault)
Paper Tray (vault)-small patterned dots and straight line shaped into balloon string
Mehndi Medallion Mini Stamp Set
Think Big Favorites #12
Balloon bow ??
I also used Quick kutz dies and I designed the "happy" cutting file. I cut it in two layers and glued them together for some dimension. It was soo hard not to add some bling to these cards! I knew the minute I did that though they wouldn't be masculine cards anymore.
Before I go I'd like to mention that I finally got some matte medium that Jennifer McGuire has been raving about and I put it in one of the Fineline applicator bottles from Amazon. I really loved how the glue gave me a little time to slide and position my "happy" letters on top of each other perfectly. The fine tip made a great thin line too. The glue gives a very strong hold. A little goes a long way so it's worth the money spent. I definitely prefer this over the glue pen or Xyron. If you'd like to see more info about these products...Jennifer just did a great video. Check it out here.
I discovered one more thing (while doing the MIM technique) that is so great about the Misti stamping tool and I must share it with you.
Thanks for stopping by! Please come back again!
