I wanted a more masculine feel so I kept that in mind when choosing my papers and colors. I used stamps from Honey Bee Scraps “Life Right Now” set to make sentiment strips on my cards, as well as so awesome mini self-adhesive faux flair! I ordered ¾” epoxy stickers from Amazon and got ¾” Avery All-Purpose circle label stickers from my local Walmart.
Many of the stamps from this set and the other Honey Bee Scraps stamps are small enough to lend themselves well to making mini “flair,” I simply stamped on the label sticker, placed a clear epoxy sticker over the label, and then peeled off the label/epoxy sticker combo to adhere to my project! Easy peasy and super cute!
Another thing I’d like to note about one of my cards is that I altered the sentiment to make it my own. The stamp says “these are the moments” but I just inked the part that said “these are the” and then added the “Smile” stamp and reinked the “s” and added it to the end to make it “smiles.” That way, I can put a 2×2 photo on my card above the strip that now reads, “these are the smiles that I live for.” Gotta love the versatility of clear stamps to help you with placement and to be flexible!
I hope you learned a few new ways to make the most of your stamps in today’s post! Happy Saturday and happy crafting!
