Today I pulled out a stamp set called Love Clusters ... it's similar to Happy Clusters, which came out in the last Idea Book. These stamps have made me curious from the get go. They appear to be begging for embellishments. How can that be anything but fun?!?
There's so much to tell you about that I don't know where to start ... how about a picture? In order to best use these stamps you cut out the shape on the Cricut, using the Art Philosophy cartridge. The exact size is marked right on the stamp sheet.
Once you cut the shape out ... stamp & decorate. I'm making it sound easy because it is. Once the image is stamped you just fill in the spaces with other things, like more stamps OR embellishments. Here I used pearls and buttons.
The background on the card above is made entirely from ribbon. I love lots of mixing and matching so this makes me happy. It's also so easy & different from the basic paper background. You might be thinking "Valentine" when you see this, but I'm thinking "Baby Girl". Sweetness in pink.
How about this butterfly? You can see from this card what the basic stamp looks like before the doodads. Do you have a spectacular friend? I have a lot of them. I hang out with people who really stand out. I'm more than happy to be in the background. I will be sending this card to someone to tell her how much I love the way she's decorated : )
