I’ve included 8 die cut tags, snowflakes, stamped sentiments, twine and embellishments in this fun kit! This would make a fun gift to give to your Thanksgiving host!

Join Melissa Bickford today as she shares creative ways to use all of those extra pieces.

 

“If you’re anything like me, you end up having a lot of leftovers when creating. I hate to waste anything and most of the time I end up creating cards using a variety of the images that are leftover. Today, I’m sharing a card with a mix of leftovers I had from the recent Ink to Paper release. This is just an example of how you don’t have to use one stamp set all by itself, but can mix images from a few different sets and end up with a beautiful result!” \

Melissa’s Tips | Stamping Outside the Lines

Join Melissa Phillips today as she shares new,creative ways to use your stamps.

 

“Try stamping outside the lines the next time you pull out your stamp sets.  This is a fun way of using your favorite sets in a creative way and the results are playful and whimsical.  I’ve used the banner images from the Garden Party stamp set and added the detailed, colored images in a variety of colors, stamping them outside the lines and allowing them to overlap.  I love the results!  Use you favorite floral sets in the very same way and enjoy the process.”
