Make it Monday and Simon Says Stamp






Happy Monday.  I was able to watch this week's Make it Monday #164:  Cluster Stamped Sentiment and crank out 3 super quick cards.  This is a really fun technique, and I encourage you to give it a try.  The hardest part for me was getting my sentiment stamp clean enough so that the versamark stamping was clear--it seemed like no matter how clean my stamp looked, it the versamark stamped image still had some black on it.  I was even using a brand new versamark pad.  In the end, I solved that problem by using white embossing powder instead of clear.


Here is my favorite of the bunch--using a Think Big birthday sentiment and balloons from Birthday Style.



I used a sentiment from Say it With Style for this next card, and I think the technique works better with sentiments that are solid and bold.  But, I still like how this one came out.  I used balloons from Birthday Bash.



This is actually the first card I made, and I used the same circle stamps from Confetti Garland Border as Heather used, as well as a solid circle from Beautiful Blooms II.  The sentiment is from Wet Paint.


I am entering all three of these cards in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: M because the technique is from Make it Monday (I hope that is OK).

I hope to make some more of these later in the week.  They are a lot of fun.

Thanks for Visiting
