Stockpiling Simple Sentiments {Avery Elle}

Hello friends,

Katie here with a simple tip using the Simple Sentiments stamp set.

Stacking sentiments can help small, simple sentiments make a big impact, and I have a tip to share to easily create a stockpile of these sentiments so they are ready for your next card project.

We're going for minimal effort here, so to stamp the sentiments at once, I kept all the stamps on the carrier sheet and taped the sheet to my MISTI using washi tape.

These sentiments are spaced out evenly- so that you can die cut around the sentiments you want to use with the Simple Sentiments Elle-Ments die.

I used light tack tape to hold the dies in place while I ran them through my die cut machine.

You can keep the sheet intact and die cut additional sentiments as the need arises, but I decided to use my trimmer to cut up the rest of the sentiments.  I'll be all set to add a simple sentiment or two to my next card!

I added three of the simple sentiments to a card featuring the Toucan Party stamp set.  I think the sentiments compliment the Toucan scene perfectly!


Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is absolutely genius!! Why have I never thought of this? Have you tried doing the same with white embossing on black paper?
