Hello Stampin’ Friends,
OK … Halloween is over and many of you know that I just loved that “Motley Monsters” Designer Series paper, but what are we going to do with it now that Halloween is over?
The obvious answer … Yep, flip it over! The great wood-grain paper below comes from “Motley Monsters”! I teamed it up with the “Wondrous Wreath” stamp set and coordinating framelits. Save 15% when you bundle the stamp set with the framelits!
The stamp set and framelits are amazing to work with … the beautiful color you create when using this two-step stamp set. I stamped Old Olive onto the Whisper White and then the Mossy Meadow in-color on top of the Olive.
* Just a quick reminder that the tabs on the photopolymer stamps are there for you to align the images and make your stamping easier.
You know me, I wanted that holiday sparkle so I used the Red Glimmer Paper and Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details. I had a blast putting this card together. The Multi-purpose glue works wonders on glimmer paper and holds superbly.
Yes, the “JOY” comes in the Wonderful Wreath framelits collection!!
One of the things I liked about this stamp set was that it also had a beautiful verse for the inside of the card, but if you are like me …. you can never stamp it straight! Today I want to share an easy solution to that problem …
1. Begin with the Grid Paper and align the inside of your card so it’s straight …
2. Use Washi tape and place it where you want your verse to “end” ….(I unsticky my washi tape a bit by placing it on my skin or clothing … you don’t want it to peel your cardstock)
3. Align the bottom of your verse slightly above your washi tape and stamp …
Ahhh … doesn’t that look nice! Perfectly straight! I love it, I love it, I love it! Why didn’t I think of this before, like 13 years ago – lol.
I hope you enjoyed my card and stamping tips …
I’d love to hear what you think… you can leave me a message below. I will have another “Motley Monsters” transformation for you tomorrow!
Till then, have a great day ~
PS… I still haven’t found those swaps!
