Hi there! Monica here again with a super cute way to use those awesome alpha stamps. These were so easy to make I decided to make a quick set. Let’s get another look at the card.
A fun way to say thank you, and easy to mass produce. I have a few simple tips to lining those letters up. Let’s jump right in.
I drew some lines with a permanent marker onto some acetate. I drew lines for portrait and landscape cards. This simple lined acetate makes using your hinged stamping tool that much easier to use. Just roll with me here…
I laid the lined acetate down on my card panel so the stamps stick to it first. I’ve always found that when I touch the stamps, they sometimes stick to my fingers and make it impossible to line them up. The acetate also makes it easier than lining the stamps up on the inside of your stamping tool. After you close the door to the stamping tool, the stamps stick easily and you can peel your lined acetate off to use again. For the sentiment, I used the Block Party Alphas stamp set from The Ink Road. I started with the bottom word and worked my way up.
I used this teeny tiny heart from the Full Circle stamp set for all of the punctuation. I also added the little girl from the Swanderful stamp set at the end of the sentiment. I added a drop of Nuvo Chrystal Drops in Sherbert Shimmer to the little girl’s bow for some added shine. The patterned paper is from Crate Paper from the Cute Girl collection. I hope this helps you use those amazing alpha stamps you have stashed and I hope you give this a try. Thanks for stopping by today. See you soon.
