I had some discovery fun and would love to share with you today. Thanks to a comment from my dear blog friend Anita R. who reminded me that I can make my own Stamp-A-Ma-Jig with Lego! That got me really thinking...I have TONS of Lego! I went to the basement (it used to be my kids' playground) and looked around. Right way, I spotted a "skyscraper" kind of plastic toy and "ding"-there is my stamp-a-ma-jig! I used duct tape to keep it in position.
Here I used a wooden stamp to show you how I did it.
First I stamped the butterfly in orange, then I colored the edges of the butterfly in black. I cleaned the excess black ink off with a cotton swab. Then STAMP! You then have an orange butterfly with the black outline!
Since I am a participant of this on line CAS class,
I was inspired to make a color block background with the sponge applicator.
The sentiment is from SRM Stickers. I simply applied it over the ribbons (the brown ribbon in the middle was layered over the yellow). Add the pearls. I also used this same approach with this set of blue/pink bird cards.
I am going to keep this Poor Girl's Stamp-A-Ma-Jig in use. I love it when I can make my own , just so I can use the saved money for something else. Wouldn't you love that, too? Maybe you can make one yourself if you haven't tried. Any L-shaped block will do. Dollar store is a good source if you don't have small kids' toys like I do. Have FUN!
And... thanks, Anita!!
