De-constructing a Large Stamp

Hello friends!
thanks for being such a sweetheart -002
I have another interesting take with this cling stamp. I love the intricate details of this heart stamp. However, I find that it should not be restricted to the heart shape.

I decided to "break it up" and stamped the borders.

you are my world -001

This is another fun way to stretch any of your stamps that comes in a shape.
you are my world -002

I started out stamping part of the heart and then flipped to the other side within my MISTI. I then ran the entire image through my die cut machine with Stitches of Love Frame.

you are my world

Once I cut out the rectangles, I colored the image with Zig Markers and added a piece of red card stock for the backing.
You are my world

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I would never think of cutting out part of a heart stamp and layering it in top. It is definitely a great way to get more out of your stamps! Great card!

I like how you changed the shape with the multiple stampings. Fantastic way to use stamps in a different form.
