STRETCHING YOUR HOLIDAY STAMPS with Guest Designer, Amanda!

STRETCHING YOUR HOLIDAY STAMPS with Guest Designer, Amanda!

Hey crafty friends, it's Amanda with Pear Blossom Press! I'm so excited to be guest designing for Brutus Monroe this month!

If you're anything like me, you love stretching your stamps and getting as much use out of them as possible. I'm sure you've used an everyday set for holidays by adding a Santa hat or something like that, but have you ever used a holiday set for a different holiday? Today, I'm showing you how I turned a few stamps from the All Hallow's Eve set into a Valentine and Galentine!

I love how these turned out! I could see using the vampire again with a "getting old sucks" or "being sick sucks" sentiment banner. And the mummy is too cute! Wouldn't she be perfect on a World's Greatest Mummy card? 

For now, let's stick with Valentine's Day. I've got a video showing you how I put these two cards together...

What do you think of my Halloween for Valentine's Day idea? Do you have any holiday sets that can do double duty? How else do you stretch your stamp supplies?

If you're looking for links to other products I used on these cards, you can find them on my blog pearblossompress.com

I'll be back later this month with another fun set of cards featuring Aqua Pigments! Until then my crafty friends...

Love this idea of using stamps and stretching them across other celebrations. I will have to look at my stamps again with a different point of view. Thanks for this idea.
