LINKED SUPPLIES (SSS = Simon Says Stamp):
I am a sucker for text-themed stamps and there is a lot to love in this month's stamp set, Card Exchanging Friends. I stamped a column of text using colorful Hero Arts Mid-Tone Shadow Inks.
I wanted the column to be roughly the same width on each side, however some of the phrases were longer. In those instances, I inked up only part of the stamp, masked off the area I didn't want to ink with a post it note (just in case some ink got on part of the text I wasn't stamping). The result is a column that is approximately the same on both sides. Easy peasy!
The dashed line border stamp in the kit was the perfect accent along each side of the text column. Then I added some patterned papers from the kit, a little twine, a die cut heart embellished with Glossy Accents and matted it all on the awesome woodgrain cardstock in the kit!
That's ten chances to win!
