Creative Uses for Stamps: MTE Style!

When I look at cards that wow me, it is usually because they do something new. One way to get so longevity out of your stamps is to find new things to do with them...and also get that WOW response we all look for!

In one of my card making sessions, I wanted to recreate this book cover found on Pinterest here

I set out to do this by cutting a bunch of shapes in a variety of colors using my Cricut. I ended up with  a card that I didn't like well enough to post and I had a bunch of the shapes left over. What to do...what to do? 

I looked at the shapes and my stamp sets the other night to see what I could make for my post, and ended up with this!

I used the Father's Day Subway Art set (see below) for the sentiment and the dash line for the stem in the flowers. Made a masculine stamp set feminine!! This is the part where you say "WOW"!  ;)

There you have it folks, another fine stamping moment using MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY STAMPS!
