Hello and welcome to a new week! It’s Tami here today. To go along with our August technique of making your own embellishments, I have a project you can whip up in no time and keep on hand for future cardmaking sessions.
First, I want to show you the card that inspired today’s idea — it’s a birthday card Sally made for her son. I just love how she mixed and matched the messages and images and even personalized it with his birthdate. Such a fabulous, versatile design!
I got to thinking…how about stamping a bunch of the cakes (or other images) ahead of time, coloring them, and adding some pop dots for pre-made dimensional “stickers” to use on future cards? So I grabbed a couple of birthday stamps — Perfect Day and Little Birdie — and went to town coloring, cutting, and glittering some cakes and party hats…
Before adding them to a piece of stamped acetate to keep them organized, I put pop dots on the back. You’ll want to leave one side of the release paper from the pop dot in tact and add a mini Glue Dot to it. This way you can stick the Glue Dot onto the acetate and later, the pop-dotted embellishments will be easy to remove.
One other idea for these? Give them to a friend! You could create a little gift set that includes some stamped embellishments, an assortment of pre-stamped messages, and a package of notecards and envelopes. Could be a great way to introduce non-stamping friends to the hobby.
Thanks for stopping by! Kelly will be back with some Stamp of the Week inspiration tomorrow…see you then!
