In this post, I showed how to use strips of the whole Hero Arts crossword stamp to make CAS cards, but today, we're using much smaller cut-outs from the large stamp to make even cleaner and simpler cards. Yippy!
First up is a very simple card I'm sending to my husband's nephew who just won all sorts of competitions in college forensics. All I did was cut out one word from the puzzle stamp.
The next card kicks the same design up a notch with a huge rhinestone. I popped the crossword rather than the sun. How do you cut out a dotty sun like that? Just thinking about it makes my brain hurt. I love using the "warm wishes" sentiment with the image of the sun, and the bling soooo makes this card!
Finally, I cut out two words and used them as a frame for a fun little flower. The stem is from a Hero Arts clear set, and I just punched the flower and added, you guessed it, bling.
As you can see, I used three different alphabets on these three cards. I have an embarrassing number of rubber stamp alphabets, most of which haven't seen use lately since I haven't been scrapbooking. It was so much fun to haul those babies out and ink them up.
