Finding Ways To Stretch Your Stamps

When Pretty Pink Posh came out with their newest release, I fell in love with the Easter Blessings stamp set.   I always look for duality when purchasing stamps and immediately, I saw another use for this set - sympathy cards.  You can find many of the wonderful products that I used today, at

By simply masking the word "Easter", you can change up the sentiment to suit your purposes.




I used a cardstock sticker with my masked sentiment, which now conveys something different altogether and is perfect for my sympathy card.  In my part of the country, flowered plants are often given in memorial at a funeral so, this lovely potted lily stamp works as well, from the set.





Those wonderful scalloped border dies add a special touch to the card, as well.  I found some leafy patterned paper in my stash that I thought paired perfectly with my lilies.  





If you look closely, you'll see that I embellished my leaves by dotting with a white gel pen.  This is something that I like to do,  just to jazz up and doodle a bit on my cards sometimes.   




Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I hope I've given you some ideas for stretching your stamps!  I've included convenient affiliate shopping links below, if you see something you like.  See you next time.....  Terri
