Stamping Sentiments and Stretching Your Stamps with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and my video today is about SENTIMENTS! I wanted to share with you the different ways I create sentiments for my cards. I use LOTS of Paper Smooches stamps, as well as several different techniques:}

Here's the video:
Here's a couple of pictures of the finished sample card: 

Other ways to create custom sentiments or stretch your stamps: 
  • You can stamp your sentiment and cut it up to create a fun title for your card.
  • Look at your stamps and see if you can use them for other occasions or holidays.
  • You can double ink your sentiment—masking and stamping part of your sentiment with 2 different inks (to highlight words or parts of words)
  • You can mask one sentiment that is horizontal and create a vertical sentiment.
  • Create sentiments using several stamps sets.
  • And you can always create your own sentiment using Alphadots and Graffiti stamp sets or the PS Alphawhimsy dies.


I hope that you will take a second look at your Paper Smooches stamps and sentiments. Try to find different words that you can create! Please leave a comment below with a link to your creation or project! I'd love to check it out:)

**And don't forget if you leave a comment, please add your blog address and email so I can visit you too:)

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

LOVE,! Such a cute card and idea using the cups with brewin!! ;). So clever!! I have used different words together from different sentiments, but never just single letters to make my own!! I'll have to see what I can come up with!! THANKS for the inspiration

Pam said...

Awesome tips Savannah!!! I mask sentiments a lot too, but I never have made one word with different stamps!! That's so cool!! Now I know I will look at my sentiments differently! Thanks so much!! :)
