Paper Crafting Tip # 26: Cut out your stamped images.

With all the great stamps that are available now, it's sometimes hard to decide just what to do with them.  Here's an oldie but a goodie.  Try cutting out the stamped image and then attaching it to a card/layout.  If you pop them up with a little foam tape, they really stand out. 

On the card below, I used stamps by Hero Arts, pigment inks, a dye ink for the background, and velvet paper for the stems and leaves.  The leaves were made with heart punches cut in half.


Remember, you can email me if you want some suggestions for TAC stamps that work great with this technique!

Paper Crafting Tip # 25: Make a Greeting Card Holder

Card_holder0001 Try making a Gift Card Holder.  This will accommodate up to 4 standard
A2 (Invitation) size cards that measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches when
folded.  Since I need to keep the original dimensions of the template,
I will email the template to anyone who wants to give it a try.  It's
really easy!  TRY IT!
