Sentiment Stamp

See what I mean, I can’t throw ANYTHING away that has to do with stamping.  I have a 1 inch wide die from MFT that makes a wide ric-rac cut.  I used it a while back for it’s intended purpose, a wide piece of ric-rac paper ribbon.  but there was the negative side of it, see, and oh, it just begged to be cut into this this strip.  And it’s been sitting on my desk for about three months now.  Well, today was THE perfect creation to use it on.  Doesn’t it look like the heart beat on a heart monitor?  Perfect.  Happy Sigh! 

For this card I stamped the sentiment first on the panel, then again onto the die cut and lined them up for a finished look.  Uhm, yeah it sounds simple to just read that, but it took a couple of practice attempts on scrap paper and and lots of good praise to my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  Where would I be without that much used tool?

Dies: Hearts from Blueprint 1

Large ric rac

  1. I love it! That's so neat that the heartbeat is really just a left over bit from a ric rac die. Very cool. I can't imagine how tricky it was to line up the words and the die nicely. It made my brain hurt just to think about it.

  2. Gorgeous card Janeen, I love the cute hearts and well done you using scraps :)
