Sentiment Rings

Do you always use the same thank you stamp or the same birthday stamp? Do you know how many sentiments you own? Well, now you can make a sentiment ring to keep your cards fresh. You will be surprised at how many sentiments are in your stamp sets. Simply stamp your sentiments onto a neutral cardstock and label the back with the name of the set. String all the "thank you", "birthday", "friend", etc onto one ring. You'll be amazed at how many sentiments you own! Below is my Friend Sentiment Ring. I made a few of these to swap at convention. Enjoy!

Word Play Swap #2

My 2nd card for the Word Play swap at convention is a holiday card.  The coloring is off a little, but this card was super easy to create.  I love using the white stazon on window sheets.  It rarely smears and dries quickly.  I punched the window sheet and Garden Green cardstock with the ornament punch.  The red glimmer paper is attached to the back of the window sheet with a mini glue dot and it doesn't show.  Behind the red glimmer paper is a dimensional.  Enjoy!

Stamp Set:
  • Word Play
  • Real Red,
  • Naturals White
  • Garden Green
  • Ornament Punch
  • Window Sheet
  • Dimensionals
  • Brights Collection Paper Stack DSP
  • Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon
  • Mini Glue Dots
  • White Stazon
  • Red Glimmer Paper
