#1. custom sentiments
Honey Bee has a truly awesome collection of sentiment stamps, I mean have you seen the Blah Blah Blah or the Kindness sets? So wonderful!!! But sometimes you just need to create your own sentiment. For this card, I stamped “sending love & a” with the Color Me Alpha. To complete the sentiment, I used the “latte” die from the Perfect Blend set.
Use letters to create patterns for backgrounds. Xs and Os are the perfect background for a lovey card.
Try drawing light pencil lines to help with letter spacing. And a quick tip, heat set pigment inks before erasing the pencil lines.
#3. unique designs
Combine letters with other stamps to create unique images & accents. The open design of the Color Me Alpha is especially awesome for this.
For example, I stamped Country Blooms in black, then I stamped & embossed “LOVE” over top so some of the blooms would be inside the letters.
Adding a little color inside the “LOVE” creates a focal point for my card and a unique design.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs!
