Hi everyone, Tami here! Today I’m going to show you a couple of fun ways to use a single sentiment stamp on one card. The sentiment I’m using is from the NEW Life is Fun clear set — part of fabulous BasicGrey Paper Cottage collection.
First I used a little reverse masking trick to create the illusion of a layered look around the message. Simply adhere a rectangular mask over the top of the message and sponge ink around the edges.

This weekend I challenge you to take another look at your sentiment stamps and think of new ways to use them. There are so many fun things you can try!
Happy stamping and happy weekend!
