Lovely Labels with a Twist...


This is my second post of the day. Scroll down to check out a punny, interactive card or click here!

Hey!

Back on track with day 3 of the The Craft's Meow June Release Countdown...


The Craft's Meow

...today we're giving you a sneaky peek of a *lovely* set by fellow newbie to the TCM Stamp Illustrator team, Elizabeth Kushner called Lovely Labels 14.

Although this fabulous set features beautiful frames, I wanted to try something a little different with them:

Happy Birthday

This is something that can be done with any frame image. Simply stamp half a frame across the top and bottom of a card base, then cut the outline with a craft knife. This then allows you to stamp a sentiment on a separate piece of card and slide it in the slits created to finish the card. I'm thinking it would be super fun to create a set of cards with different sentiments on separate pieces of card as a gift, giving the recipient the flexibility of picking which sentiment to use with which card!

So that's my take on Lovely Labels with a twist! Be sure to check out the way the rest of the TCM DT rocked the labels, and don't forget to leave a comment on the TCM Blog for a chance to win this fabby set yourself! (Comments must be left by 9pm Pacific Time tonight.)

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I really hope you can visit tomorrow as I finally get to share a sneaky peek of a stamp set designed by yours truly! Pinch me! :)

Catch ya later!
