Elazybells March Sneak Peek Day 2

It's day two of Elzybells sneak peeks for the stamp release on Monday. Yesterday when I posted this card I said I would talk more about it today. So here I am today telling you how to make cutting out the "faux stamps" a little easier. When I started to cut this out I was like "there is NO WAY I am cutting out each little bump in the stamp. There has to be an easier way," and there is...

  1. First thing's first: you will need a Stampin' Up SLOT PUNCH to replicate what I did. If you find a punch that's small enough to do this, GREAT! Start by cutting around the stamp along the outline so you have a square or rectangle. 
  2. Hold the punch upside down so you can see the little white half-circle you need to clip off and punch!
  3. It's a little messy. White flecks everywhere, but that's it!

This is a really cute way to frame small images, and the set that Elizabeth has put together has 3 different sizes of postage stamps, and 2 styles in each size, along with a bunch of sentiments too!

The other design team members have sneak peeks again for you, so be sure to check our their blogs:

Here is another card I made using the outline version of the rectangle postage stamp. I used the same method to punch out the half-circles.

Stamps: Elzybells
Paper: SU! (kraft) and Papertrey Ink
Ink: Momento
Other: Chipboard (Basic Grey), Copic Markers, Glossy Accents (Ranger), Glitter (Glitter Ritz)

See you tomorrow with another sneak!
