This week the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team is showing off some creative ways to stretch those 2×3 stamp sets! I always think of the 2×3 stamp sets as small but mighty. They can be used in a variety of ways!
I started by stamping out the donuts and then coloring them in with my PRISMACOLOR PENCILS. I added some detail into the sprinkles using my white gel pen. On a few of the donuts, I added some glossy frosting by covering it with NUVO DROPS. After the donuts were colored in, I cut them out and set them aside while I worked on the tags.
The background colors for my tags were made by simply dragging a variety of SURFACE INK colors across the paper and then drying them with my heat tool. Here are the colors I used for each tag:
Feminine tag (bottom to top):
Masculine tag (bottom to top):
Then, I moved on to making the shaker tags with my FUSE TOOL. I had my Fuse plugged in before I started this project, so by the time I got to this step it had been warming up for about 20 minutes. I have a number of plastic sheet protectors that I use for shaker pockets. I cut the plastic down to size and then used the Fuse ruler with the tool and sealed up three sides.
I then added some shaker bits to the pockets and also dropped in the stamped and colored donut. With my pockets filled, I sealed up the last side to completely contain all the sequins in my pocket.
I then adhered the pockets to the tag with my ATG, and added some washi tape over the adhesive to hide it.
Such a fun way to use these small stamp sets! These tags would be so cute on a gift, as part of a card, or in an ATC swap!
BTW, do you remember those other donuts in the video that I used NUVO DROPS on? I created a cute card with them! What goes better together than donuts and coffee?
Dont you just love how perfectly the DONUT WORRY stamp set blends with the COZY COFFEE set? I just couldn’t resist pairing them! The background is made from doing some second generation stamping with the colors MACCHIATO and WAGON. This just gave a softer stamped look but matched the coloring on the donut and coffee cup!
So next time you stop by the BRUTUS MONROE SHOP, don’t overlook the 2×3 stamps! They are able to be used in a variety of ways!
Dont forget to stop by the other Brutus Monroe Team Member’s blogs to see what they created!
Thanks for stopping by!
