I needed a birthday card and I was having crafters block! I started playing around with the Thread Sketch and Brush Stroke stamp sets. After coming up with my design, I started to stamp the words Happy Birthday from the Cake Time stamp set. And as I was getting ready to put the card front on the base, I realized that I totally stamped the words – Happy Birthday in the wrong direction given that I already stamped the inside sentiment.
So I was in a dilemma, do I re-stamp the whole card front (which would have not taken me very long) or to I re-stamp the inside sentiment. Or do I try to make it work. Being pressed for time, I decided to see what I could do to make it work.
This is the end result.
I decided to stamp the Happy Birthday in the other direction. I was very pleased how it turned out.
Of course I need to add some of our Silver Silk and Sparkle Silk!!! Never can have too much silk!
Note that the Brush Stroke was on the Break-up Sale list and is no longer available but you could get a similar look from using our dauber dowels.
May all you hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
