Stampin' UP! Flourishing Phrases
It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for the Stamp Review Crew. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators focused on sharing a ton of ideas focusing on a single stamp set. This week we're featuring Flourishing Phrases. You have likely come from Betty Traciak's Blog on your way through this amazing hop. If you get lost, simply click on the banner for a list of participants and get back on track.
A few months ago I found a Magnavox 1963 console stereo. The turntable needed some work but the results is wonderful. There's something about vinyl that sounds so much richer than a CD does. Today when Rick and I went for coffee, some dear friends, Curtis and Jeff, came In with a gift for us. My first BRAND NEW record since probably 1985! AND what a record! Perfect for our mid century modern living room makeover. (Soon to happen. We're still recovering from our front yard makeover!) This gift DEFINITELY deserves a hand made Thank You card!
Step by Step Tips:
- There is no shadow behind the image. It was created by using Sahara Sand Classic Ink and a Stamp-a-ma-jig. And it was so easy. The Stamp-a-ma-jig is the “go to” tool for making quick work of precisely positioning any stamped image:
- Place the stamp where you want the main image to appear on the card stock.
- Place the Stamp-a-ma-jig on the lower left corner of the stamp.
- Remove the stamp and draw a light pencil line down the inside of the Stamp-a-ma-jig's two edges.
- Stamp the image in Old Olive Classic Ink.
- Remove the stamp and clean it with your Stampin' Scrub.
- Move the Stamp-a-ma-jig down and over 1/8“
- Re-ink the stamp in Sahara Sand Classic Ink and stamp being careful not to move the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Voila! Instant shadow! Simple!
- Here's a video on using the Stamp-a-ma-jig. I did not use the imaging sheet Donna mentions.
- The printed border was created by stamping the two leaf stamp in Sahara Sand Classic Ink on Sahara Sand card stock.
