using small stamps to create a big focal point


Release Replay is when the MFT Stamps design team shares another project using products from the latest release. With all the beautiful stamps and dies, we don't always get to share our ideas with you. Today's post is the perfect place to do just that!

Whimsical Greetings was one of the new stamp sets that I did not get a chance to share with you during the release. Its a new set from Lisa Johnson Designs. The set has fantastic sentiments along with a few trendy design elements that I featured here.

Small design elements can often be difficult to use on cards. The trick is how to balance the space of the card with the scale of the image. With my card today, those elements stand out and create a focal point. I cut several colors of card stock with Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1. Then I stamped each of them with different images from Whimsical Greetings. Heating the images with white embossing powder creates a cohesive grouping. All of that technical stuff equals a really pretty card, ready to send to someone to brighten their day!

Visit the MFT Stamps Blog for links to the rest of the design team and their fabulous ideas! And don't miss out on the organization week happening! Tons of great ideas for taming your stash!
