Making your stamps S-T-R-E-T-C-H...

As big as our eyes are for rubber stamps, most of our wallets are probably not big enough to buy everything that we see. The solution is to make what you do have...STRETCH. Find new uses, new techniques, new ideas, etc. One thing that I do is to take a look at the details. For example, this stamp is such a quirky, funny little guy.

Not much to crop or stretch? But look closely. That #1 fan glove is just itching to be the star of a card. With the magic of ink and repeated stamping....hehe...you can easily make a card like this:



We use paper and ink and scissors. So pick up those scissors and cut away...until you come up with a new point of view for your stamped cards!







I can get a birthday boy sitting anywhere I chose when I cut off the gift he is sitting on. (650KU)


Take a look at your stamps by DRS Designs and see how you can STRETCH their use!
