Bold Balloons Using the Stamp Perfect

Hello friends. Today's blog is all about birthdays and balloons.  What's impressive about these cards is not so much the final results -- although I hope you like the cards -- it's the technique for achieving them.  If you recently bought the Stamp Perfect stamp positioning tool or if you have another brand tool, you can learn these techniques in my Birthday class on Saturday, February 4th at 10am.  You will learn how to mass produce stamped die cuts; how to perfectly align two images (in this case the string on the balloon); and how to repeatedly stamp an image in a perfect row.  I hope you can join us -- I promise you will have fun and learn a lot!

This next card is an example of creating a border by repeatedly stamping a word, in this case "happy."  You will learn a couple ways to do this technique.Happy-BirthdayHappy Birthday – Paper Smooches stamp set Fun & Flirty; Paper Smooches die Happy Birthday; design inspired by Penny Ward

Mirror image stamping is trending these days because using the Mirror Image Blocks from Paper Smooches and the Stamp Perfect makes it easy.  Aren't these the cutest little dogs?!!  I will be teaching this technique in the Introduction to the Stamp Perfect class on Saturday, February 4 at 2pm.Dog-WonderfulDogs Wonderful – Paper Smooches stamp sets Woofers & Tweeters and Mirror Blocks; Paper Smooches dies Woofers and Linked Hearts; Taylored Expressions die Falling Hearts; design inspired by Jennifer McGuire

More cute dogs achieved with mirror image stamping.  And another tip:  I die cut the "Smooches" sentiment from red cardstock and did not remove the word.  Then I inked the entire piece with Versamark ink and embossed it with Iridescent embossing powder.  Easy way to achieve a sparkling sentiment for your card!Dog-SmoochesDogs Smooches – Paper Smooches stamp sets Woofers & Tweeters and Mirror Blocks; Paper Smooches die Smooches; Taylored Expressions die Falling Hearts; Memory Box die Glorious Hearts; design inspired by Jennifer McGuire
