Why I Don’t Always Cut Up My Stamp Plates

The new Creative Expressions stamp set for the design team to play with in June is the Sam Poole’s Art Sayings stamp plate. It is all in the sentiment!

Perfect example of why I don’t always cling mount and cut up my stamp sets, sometimes the plate itself makes a perfect stamp in its own right.

How is that for a background?

Looks great with the Ranger Tim Holtz Distress stains splatter – which I love doing ‘coz it is just so much fun!

The frame and ‘Capture The Moment’ sentiment are from Sam Poole’s Vintage Photo set.

Think I might just keep this Art Sayings stamp set uncut!

Have a super stampy weekend.

    Totally fab Kim! think you might just split them up eventually though…coz you can always put them back together on a large acrylic block…have to say you inspired me with the splats for my next Tanda Teaser.
