If you're ever stumped for something to do with those awkwardly small stamps that litter sets, here's an easy way to use them as focal point on a standard 5.5" x 4.25" card.
1. Create a small panel in white or cream.
2. Stamp a sentiment.
3. Use the small image once, twice, or three times to accent the sentiment.
4. Adhere the panel to a colored card base using dimensional tape.
Here's one sun...
For these cards, I created my small panel with a notebook paper stamp from Hero Arts stamped in pale colors. To add a little interest, I punched holes in the sides using a 1/8" circle punch. Because the messages are rather informal and the images mostly look doodled, I placed the stamped panels askew. They looked rather artificial and stiff when placed straight.
Don't worry. Tomorrow I'll post something at nice, tidy right angles. In the meantime, why not play with your smaller stamps and see how strong a focal point they can be!
