Do the darling but itty bitty stamps cause you angst? Have trouble coloring them, or coming up with cute designs that show off just how sweet they are? I’ve got a fun solution for you today – and I was really excited to discover this when Stephanie from Clearly Besotted slipped the March release into my mailbox. There are a bunch of new sets I’ll link you to at the end of the post – but I’ll just be working with two of them today.
Superhero cards for kids – with tiny stamps
I’ve mentioned before that I love to color ALL the stamps. Since I don’t usually repeat the same stamp set on YouTube (coz man there are toooooo many that I want to spread the love to! lol), then I do like to color alllll the images if possible, so you can see at least one way that I’d do it. I was puzzling how to get all these cuties onto a single card – and spied my stash of Pretty Pink Posh dies while I was thinking. Oh MY. Lots of little openings…..this would be perfect!

Caped Cuties is a set I wish had been around for OWH! So darned cute and would be perfect for kiddos….but I’ll be sending mine to some grown up kiddos instead. 🙂 And I just love finding small, controllable images to color with pencils, since my technique takes so much time; it’s a lot easier to work with limited areas to color. But you could color these with anything – as long as you can get into lots of these tiny spots!
The envelope needed a little love…AND I hadn’t been able to add all the stamps onto the card, so I decorated the envie too! I wish there were envelopes made of Neenah Desert Storm so I could match it, but a Kraft envelope will do.
