"Full of class" stamp tutorial

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  As promised during the 'Using Close To My Heart Stamps with Cricut Cartridge", this is a pictorial of how I achieved the look of two colors on the "Full of class" stamp.

1. Stamp the image in CTMH Goldrush on a scrap piece of paper.

2. Cut the 'Postage Stamp' from CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge.  Lay the postage stamp on a scrap piece of paper and then stamp the image using CTMH Olive Ink, the arrow will go off the edge but your scrap paper will catch the ink.
3. Trim the arrow from the image you first stamped in Goldrush.  Now you can choose to leave it as is with the fianl 'L' turning gold along with the arrow....
...or you can cut the 'L' away from the Goldrush arrow, which will allow the Olive 'L' to show through the image leaving just the arrow in Goldrush.

I think it looks great either way so enjoy!
Have a SCRAPtastic day!

Blessings,
Melitta
