Warm and Fuzzy

We're talking sentiments at As You Like It Challenge, more specifically how you like to add them. You might choose die cut, stamped, typed, label maker, tag, etc.  The list is endless!  

Quite often I get so engrossed in the image that I completely forget to include a sentiment, but I've been really trying hard to remember the pesky things!  In the past I stamped or printed my sentiments and added them like a tag or label to my finished card.  I'd certainly never dream of stamping them directly onto the face of my image panel through fear of messing up the stamped image and under no circumstances would I attempt that after I'd coloured the image (which is usually when I think of adding a sentiment).  

However, all that changed when I bought my Stamping Platform. It was a real game changer for me and given me a new found confidence in stamping sentiments after I've coloured the image.  As often happens with ink stamping, my sentiment didn't stamp perfectly the first time so I just inked it up and pressed it down again! The Stamping Platform has opened up a whole new world of sentiment stamping for me! I'd held off buying one for so long but now it's one of my most used tools, even on cards using a digi for the main image, like today's cute Gerda Steiner bunnies.
