Little Stamp goes a long way


The next card class I'm doing in February will be using small stamps.  I made a couple of the cards last night, one more elegant and one more fun.  The fun one shown here is using a repeated cherry stamp from October Afternoon's Cherry Hill collection.  Three cherries on a slot machine is supposed to be the jackpot, isn't it?  I hope so, because I use the Lucky You stamp from one of the current Stampin' Up! hostess sets.

To stamp the cherry image in multiple colors, I first inked the lower part of the stamp in red and stamped.  After cleaning, I inked the top half of the stamp in green and stamped.  Then I went over the stems with a brown marker.  This was faster than using markers for all of it.

The border is the same as the one I did on this blog post where a video shows you how it is done with the tab punch  (Tipsy Tuesday Tab Punch Border)

This weekend is the winter Craft and Hobby Association show and there are lots of things going on on-line as new product lines premiere.  I'm following Two Peas in a Bucket's videos found here. 2 Peas CHA Blog You can leave comments for a chance at a prize of new product.  I've only watched about three videos so far and haven't found any must have's but I'm sure there will be plenty on my wish list before the weekend is done.

Thanks for visiting today!
