Just a quick little word collage using the old Hero Arts clear set Friends.

Word collages like this are pretty easy after you've tried one or two, so don't let them intimidate you. Start with a scrap of card stock, and start with the larger stamps. Fill in with smaller stamps, trying to keep spacing fairly even (though not exact...a little looseness in the design keeps it from looking like it was done by a computer).

Just remember it's only paper...and you can pitch the scrap if you mess up. No one has to know!

Hero Arts (and other clear stamp manufacturers) often put out sets that use a lot of fonts for the same word or phrase. Look into your stash and see what sort of word collage you can make. Two stamps in my collage come from other sets...the heart comes from the Hero Arts set Year Round Sentiments, which is an OWH set, and the orange horizontal friend is from Papertrey's Mega Mixed Messages.

Improvise and have fun!

stamps: Hero Arts, Papertrey
ink: Memento
paper: Papertrey
accessories: dimensionals, rhinestones, heart-shaped rhinestone


  1. Oh, this is cute! I love the bright colors! :)

  2. So sweet, brilliant colours :)

  3. I did this once with a "Many Thanks" card. The spacing never did suit me entirely, but there came a point when I felt like making an "Enough is Enough" card. I didn't think anyone but I would figure out the message from the single word "enough" on the cardstock, though I did make and frame one for myself as a joke and reminder to not take myself so seriously. It's since been lost or relegated to some pile or another. Maybe it's time for another.

  4. Super vibrant colours, Susan, and a fantastic idea ... thanks for the inspiration! Anita :)
