Today’s card (1-23)

Heading out so today’s post (and the next few over the next couple days) will be short and sweet.

This is today’s card.

The images are from Technique Tuesday’s new “Thanks for Everything” clear stamp set. It’s part of their  CHA-Winter 2009 release.

A little secret about this card is I stretched the word “thanks”.

What???!!! What you say? 😉

Well, it’s a simple trick that works great with a lot of clear stamps.

I placed the “thanks” stamp on a block. Then, I stretch it out with my fingers by pulling the edges of the stamp. That way, the word looks a little bigger than it would had I just stamped it the normal way.

The groovy thing about this little trick is the stamp totally returned to its normal shape when I took it off the block.

My apologies for no pictures to compare how the stamp looks stretched vs. not stretched. Next time I share a card that uses stretching, I’ll share some.

Well, that’s it for now.

I’ll be back later. But my posts will continue Saturday! 🙂

    I ♥love♥ the multi-language thank you stamp, might have to look for that one 😉
