Stamping Sentiments | Tutorial

Hello friends, Laura here with a new tip to share today.  I used it to help me create this little card, after reading about it online last month.

If you recall, I shared a tutorial last week about colouring with distress inks here.

Well I thought this cute little image needed a home, so I got busy creating a card for it.  But when it came time to add the sentiment, I wasn't sure where to put it.

That's when I remembered this tip from Jennifer McGuire, in a recent (ish) post she suggested stamping sentiments onto a piece of acetate.

So I grabbed a scrap of acetate and some StazOn and stamped the sentiment that I wanted to use.

Then you can move it around your page / card to see where you like it the most.

Definitely here, I think!

Once I was done, I tucked the acetate in with my stamp set, so that I could use it again another day.

Here is another look at my card.

Supply List: American Crafts cardstock; Teresa Collins patterned paper; Your Next Stamp image and sentiment; Hemptique button twine; misc button;  Tim Holtz Distress Ink (image colouring); Memento ink; StazOn ink.

Thanks for visiting!
