I'd like to share another tip with you that I really enjoy - random stamping! You can create your very own, one-of-a-kind paper with your stamps and inks! Because the CTMH stamps are clear and stamp so well, you can place a variety of images on your blank paper and create a beautifully patterned paper yourself. Here's a sample of one of my first attempts, only using 3 stamp images and one color of ink on white cardstock:
While I have gotten better at it, it was pretty simple and fast to make it. Select your biggest stamp image and use a "triangle pattern" to stamp the image around your paper: stamp once and then go up or down to the left and then to the right. It is easier to show than to explain but I hope you can deduce it from the picture. Remember to stamp off your paper to give it that look of a printed pattern. Then follow with the other images in descending size order. Here's a picture of how I used a piece of that paper in a layout:
Here's a picture (from another consultant) showing a layout with multi-color random stamping - gorgeous and I love that stamp set for a beach layout!
I really enjoy that technique and I hope you do, too. If you need more info on random stamping, call or email me and we'll talk. That's all for now - good night and God bless you!
Making memories with you,
