Alphabet 4U

Day 3 of Stretch your Stamps online card class was to    s-t-r-e-t-c-h usage of that genre of stamps.  I pulled out a set I had never used (why did I buy it I wonder) and began to play.  From previous class idea, I white embossed the alphabet on white cardstock.  Then took colors of Distress Ink which I stamped on my work mat, then spritzed with water and painted over the embossed letters.  a ribbon, flourish, flower, pearl, and "alphabet" sentiment on a tag completed this alphabet card.   The hardest part of the card was getting the letters off their plastic card.  Several of them tore, but I was able to smoosh them together.  Apparently not using them for a couple of years did not help them much lol!

Paper: Various Card Stocks
Ink: Distress Inks
Stamp: My Sentiment Exactly
Die: Memory Box, Paper Studio punch, Martha Stewart punch
Ribbon: May Arts
