Today is the last day to register for Wednesday's Holiday Stamp-A-Stack! And, today I unveil the final Stamp-A-Stack cards. I created them with my friend, and fellow purple-lover, in mind as she continues with her chemotherapy—this one is for you Deb Pott!
The background is simple random stamping with the coordinating snowflake stamp in Concord Crush on Wisteria Wonder. I used Whisper White layers for contrasting frames, but I think a layer of Brushed Silver card stock would have looked nice, too! Maybe I'll add that under the sentiment somehow.
Did you see the cool shape of the sentiment punch? That's the longer version of the punch trick I showed you from the Decorative Label Punch. You can see how it's done at the bottom of this post: Pennant Parade Holiday Tree Trio.
I couldn't resist spritzing the whole thing with a little Shimmer mist spray. Ooh la la! Love it! I'm totally addicted to this shimmer mist spray, and I blame it on Carmen DeBruce!
So, am I the only one who does this? While admiring my beautiful new creation, I opened it to discover...
...oh crap! The damn thing is decorated upside-down! Has this ever happened to you? Frustrating!
Floss TIP: Dental Floss to the rescue! Just slip some dental floss (I prefer the unminted kind) in between the two card stock layers you want apart, and pull. I've found that the easy-glide floss doesn't work as well. Working the floss back & forth between the layers is not always easy to do if they are adhered well, so sometimes I have someone else hold the card while I pull the floss through. But, it works! Saved myself many a card with this handy tip! I wish that this trick worked with DSP, too, but unfortunately it can rip or cut through the paper, so I wouldn't recommend it for that.
Bonus TIP: I've heard from customers that dental floss is also a great way to slice cake! Who knew?!
