I used to think I didn't need sentiment stamps.
I thought I could always just print out any sentiment I wanted
from my computer, and for free. Well, that is true, but what a PIA
to print out a simple sentiment, choose a font, point size, etc.. and then try to
fill up an entire sheet of paper of them so as not to waste paper.
I have come to my senses and have amassed quite the sentiment stamp collection.
Stampotique has some amazing sentiments and quotes in their shop.
TONS of them, in fact.
I made this card using a couple of the newer releases from this year.
And had a play with some of those cool Distress Oxide inks, too.
I began by stamping the Script Background stamp onto kraft card stock using
Versamark ink and then clear embossing it.
I used some Oxide inks along the edges, and flicked some water on it to get a reaction.
I still need to practice more, but I do like the matte chalky feel to these inks.
I love this Communitree stamp!!
At first, I didn't realize it was a tree, but once I did, I fell in love
with this stamp.
I used some of the Daniel's Hearts hearts to drive home the message of love.
I get so much use out of this one heart background stamp.
And lastly, but not leastly (lol), is the lovely sentiment stamp,
A Heart, which is a quote from Oz.
I think all of these stamps work brilliantly together, as well as great stand
alone stamps for any project.
I hope I've inspired you to expand your sentiment stamp collection.
So handy, convenient, and perfect for nearly all my stamped projects.
