Smile {Inspired by Current Catalog}

Recently I was flipping through the Current Catalog.  I saw THIS card.  (I would love to just copy and paste a picture of it for you, but sadly I can't seem to do it.)  But I did take a picture of the catalog page with my camera.....how's that for cheating the system??

So I thought it might be fun to try to re-create the look.   I grabbed every color of the rainbow...a few million stamps....and....whatdya think?

Similar anyway.

I changed the sentiment, to make it fit with the stamp sizes I had.  Here's a fun fact:  Those circles behind the letters are actually the back side of another stamp.  It's a cool little trick you can do with the MyAcrylix stamps.  The reverse side of the stamp is smooth, so if you like the shape of a particular stamp, just put it on the clear block facing in and voila! you have another stamp.  In this case the actual stamp is the large center of a flower with some texture detail.  But when I flipped it over it became a somewhat misshapen circle.  Perfect for what I needed!

Hope it brought a smile to your face!

  1. I liked that you mentioned using the back of the stamp. That reminded me of this book I found at our library.

  3. Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It's on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
