2S4Y53 - You Make Me Happy


Hi, everyone! I'm back with my second post of the day. There's a lot going on the first half of this week, so I'll be posting multiple cards through Wednesday. :)

I created today's card using this week's 2 Sketches 4 You #53 sketch. We have two awesome sponsors this week... WPlus9 and Cathie Allen's Position-It. I'm a little OCD about making sure my outlines match up perfectly to the inside stamps, so I was completely psyched when we heard we were going to get to try Cathie's new stamp positioner.  I used the WPlus9 Funky Foliage set, and wanted to try to create something other than trees with it because I love using stamps in ways they weren't originally intended for. :) Once I saw the plaid tree top, I just *knew* it would make a ridiculously cute flower! :)

I've created a simple tutorial to explain how I used the Position-It:

Step 1: Create flower image using plaid tree tops on strip of white CS.

Step 2: Lay plexi-glass down on Position-It surface (highlighted in yellow) and stamp with outline image.

Step 3: Place stamped image onto Position-It base, lay plexi-glass stamped image on top and rotate CS to fit image underneath the outline.

Step 4: Remove plexi-glass and stamp outline onto white CS.


Repeat steps 3 and 4 until outline is complete.  

So easy to use, and the images are lined *perfectly*.
