Maximize The Use of One Tiny Stamp

 Hello friends!

I am sure you must have MANY tiny stamps in your stash. Have you used them to the best advantage?
 If you have not played with a tiny stamp, you must check out today's post!

I used the tiny stamp Crystal Lotus as a focal point.

The following are the key elements:
1. Frame die: this is an easy way to  cut the cardstock to perfect stock. Bonus: it also add interest with the dotted frame.
2. Background: create a background with the Reflections Die (used as a stencil)

3. Dimensions: you can simply use foam dots to add heights and dimensions.
TWIST:  I actually die cut the image and then inserted the stamped image BACK to the spot. This is the so-called "inlaid-diecutting"

4: Odd numbers: I kept the lotus as a group of 5 ( two inlaid and 3 popped up). There are 5 Satin White Sequins.

If you have one tiny stamp, you can achieve a ton of impact by apply a few or all of the 5 elements listed above. I hope that you are inspired by today's post.

Thanks for stopping by!
