A Year of Card Techniques - (April - Stamp Set Showdown)
Welcome to A Year of Card Techniques Blog Hop where each month we’ll feature a different card technique. We’ve assembled a team of fabulous card makers who range from new to advanced, so you’ll see a wide variety of cards and ideas.
The month of April features a Showdown! A stamp set showdown, that is. We’re using one stamp set in various ways. Let’s face it, stamp sets are getting more and more expensive; so we’re here to inspire you by demonstrating how to s-t-r-e-t-c-h those stamps!

Off we are! I looked at my bookcase to find these...
rather dismal... don't ya think? But... I thought I'd try out a set anyway. And, since Spring is Sprung... I picked...
Super cute, right? And I mixed and matched things up a bit to get these:
Then... I went to slice them up cut them to card-size and...
Yep this happened...
So I made the most out of them and decided to add a lot of **SPARKLE**! sparkle is like magic. It tends to take away your errors. didn't you know?
See? The sparkly even shows up on photos!!! Woohoo! At least something went right this time...
After coloring... I've got all these card tops! I'm way ahead of the game, now!
And just so you know... I'm probably going to give up coloring for a bit. My inner kindergartner doesn't seem to want to come out to play very well. I'm still having a bit of trouble with blending (and staying in the lines) and cutting them correctly, etc. I haven't played with my Cricut in awhile... so I believe she'll be waiting for me.
Now you’re off to visit with Jodie. Hope you had fun and thanks for stopping by. See you next month with another technique!
