Oh, you know, just some deconstruction by Ro! lol

Sometimes when I look at stamps, I see them not as they are, but as they could be. Case in point...For my February calendar page, I loved the giraffes, but the sentiment wasn't very Februaryish (that's a word, right?). So, I did a little surgery and cut the sentiment apart from the image...two stamps for the price of one! ;)  I then used the sentiment from Messy Love which fit perfectly with February.
Pretty In Pink Ink (Stampin' Up!), Versamark, Black Embossing Powder, Stampin' Up! Rub-Ons, Washi Tape, computer-generated calendar
And that worked out so well, I decided to do it again with another set. I loved the umbrella couple from Survive Together, but I didn't want to use the sentiment. So I stamped it in black and colored in the words. And Partners In Crime is in three rows on one stamp. I wanted to do it in a banner, so snip-snip-snip. I used a different sentiment on the inside of each note card.

Supplies used: Survive Together (SD752), Partners In Crime (SS053)*
Patterned Cardstock from Pink Paislee and Craft Smith, Memento Ink
For my last project, I just wanted to have a sympathy card on hand. And these required no surgery! I stamped and embossed the background on some Kraft cardstock and added the sentiment (stamped on vellum) using a decorative clip. I added some score lines to finish off the card.
Versamark, Kraft Cardstock, Decorative Clip, Score Board, Embossing Powder, Vellum

* Partners in Crime and With Sympathy both include multiple sentiments in their sets. Well worth the purchase! 
That's my share for today! If you would like more information on how these cards went together, just leave me a note in the comments and I will happily respond!

Til next time,
Keepin' It Inky!
