When I’m stuck for a card idea I ask my teenage daughter. She looks at my stamp sets and begins with, “Well, mom, you can use this and …. “. She then becomes a chatterbug. Her enthusiasm inspires me.
One of her best ideas is to alter people stamps for any occassion. She made a fairy using butterfly wings and you can see the card here. This time I used hammock man from the A Cut Above Cling Stamp set and turned him into a leprechaun. (See the card below.) I also used Artistry Blooms DSP and the Lots of Hearts Dies to make a great Shamrock. Remember that a Shamrock is only three leaves not a four leaf clover.
I hope my daughter’s idea will inspire you to have fun with your stamps and to stretch the use of them by asking yourself, “What else can I use this for? “
