A Happy Hello

 

Inspiration:  Just continuing my quest to use the DSP that I have on hand!

Tips:
  • Place your Stampin' Pierce Mat or a piece of fun foam under your card stock before stamping photopolymer stamps that are large solid images like these.  Since the stamps are hard and not "squishy" (that's a technical term LOL) like rubber, the foam will add some "give" so you'll get better ink coverage.
  • If you're using Stampin' Up! ink pads, tap your stamp lightly on the pad to get the best ink coverage. 
  • Look at the stamp to make sure you have good coverage before stamping.
  • When you stamp, let the stamp rest on the paper.  You can actually see the ink spreading and can press little more in spots that look like they haven't transferred.
  • Use a black Sharpie to color the rhinestones for the flower centers.
  • The flowers and the white panel were adhered with dimensionals.
