Taking a second look...

It's a funny thing. I thought I had all the stamps I wanted from the old catalog but when The Angel Company went back to 100% image sizes, suddenly I saw some of the older sets in a new light!

Linear Sentiments is one of those sets! I think it also helped that I remembered seeing Michelle Wooderson (Mish Mash blog) use them brilliantly and she is the master of mass production!

So here's how I did it...step one was to cut a border on paper cut to the width of the card size I wanted. Step two was to ink up the stamp(s) and stamp!


By punching both ends of the paper, I could do two strips right away...and even play with the color combinations.


The 3rd step is to trim your sentiment strip and then add it to a card!



This card is easy to whip up and perfect for mass production! And look at all of the sentiments that come with this set...plus some great bold images that make wonderful focal points when cut out or quick and easy backgrounds!



So, here's to second looks! If you want to have a copy of The Angel Company catalog, I have some in stock and I'm waiting on my shipment of the Fall Magalogues! All stamps and papers from The Angel Company.

Great card Chris! I know what you mean about seeing the stamps at full sized in a new light. I didn't think it would make that big of a difference but it does! LOL

Nice card! I had the same problem as you when the new catty came out...seeing old sets for the first time sure added to my wish list.
