I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love the Single Stamps. They are available until July 31 and we do have some great ones. I needed just a little extra added to my last order so I could get hostess rewards, single stamps were the answer. The one I chose this time, Hello Foxy
2 1/2" square. I am one who loves large images. I did a little stamp surgery ( I know, you didn't know I was a surgeon) and used my scissors to cut off the sentiment so I can easily ink him up and not worry about taping off the sentiment.
Now he is a fox bearing a gift of balloons! Now, we don't have a balloon punch, but they are so easy to make, I used our 1" circle punch and then I used one of the mini ornament punches to make the bottom part and attach Whisper White Baker's twine to the backs. The fox is coloured with our blender pen and watercolour crayons ( I am so sad that these are no longer available due to a manufacter issue) and yes, in my part of the world, foxes are blue. The Marina Mist background has been run through my Big Shot with the Cloudy Day Impressions folder for some added texture. The sentiment is from One in a Million, a great set that has sentiments for the outside of the card and also the inside
Don't forget, to check out the retirement list of retiring stamps and accessories. Lots of the accessories are gone but there are still lots of great deals.
