Creative Ways To Stretch Your Stamps With Two Paper Divas + Sale

I'm here today with another project for Two Paper Divas Stamps and a little spin on one of the Halloween stamp sets, Spell on Me.

One of the things that I look for in a stamp set is, duality.  If I can find a way to creatively stretch my supplies, then I'm more likely to purchase that product.  One of the things that I love about this seasonal set, which obviously is perfect for Halloween, is that it also tells a love story as well.

Our resident Divas had that in mind, when they designed Spell On Me.  You can not only spin your magic at Halloween but bring it out for special occasions, like Valentines Day, an Anniversary, birthday or any special occasion where love is involved.  My husband would love to receive this! Do you have a student in the family who's a science geek?  How fun would it be to give them a cute card with a fun take on their favorite subject?  Teachers?  How about a bunch of cute little mini cards or tags that they can pass out to their students?  There are so many possibilities with this set.   
And, it's on sale which is always an added bonus!

Here's a few quick details on how I designed this card.  I took one of the potion images and stamped 5 rows (on a 4x5 piece of cardstock that I eventually trimmed down) alternating my bottle upside down, then right side up and off setting it at the next line, to give that staggered appearance.  Next, I used my Spellbinders Celebrations Square Pierced dies with my Cuttlebug die cutting machine, to create these fun frames, popping out the inner frame with foam squares.

Really, it was very quick and easy.  Just don't do like I did and fumble the ink pad right in the middle and then have to start all over.  Am I the only who fumbles their ink pads?  Good grief, it happens to me all the time.  One minute I'm stamping, the next minute, the ink pad is flying and landing ink side down, right smack in the middle of my project.  It feels like Sunday afternoon football, and I just fumbled the play.  Surely, I'm not alone in my crafty mishaps......

Purchase SPELL ON ME, here.  Look around while you're there as there's a store wide sale of 25% off and you are bound to love what you see.  I'm particularly fond of their coffee stamp sets too.
