I am taking a wee break from work as my computer is ticking me off. So I figure no time like the present to STAMP!
I am really lov'n playing with my Elzybells again this week. Been a while since I dug them out. But once I do it is love all over again! It is liking visiting an old friend... I know you ladies know what I mean! LOL
So here is the deal, you take a 12x12" paper, cut it at 4 1/2" and then use your SCOR-IT, and score at 5" and again at 10". Fold it like a match book. Then add a tiny bit of adhesive to make a wee pocket inside. Then stuff anything you wish inside. I wanted to put a packet of flower seeds in, but alas no time to run off to the store, so STAMPS will have to do!
Now for the fun part. Decorating the front. I just picked a fave Elzy stamp inked her up; and masked the present in front. Then coloured her in with my copics, and cut a flower from the Designer Paper to link the image to the background.
Ladies I am telling you; if you have not tried masking and altering your stamps; please DO! In these hard economic times it helps to stretch your stamping dollars!
Experiment, and Enjoy my friends!
