Tuesday Tip - 2 stamps make 1 (and a sketch challenge!)

I've taken off a few weeks from my weekly Tuesday Tips (anyone notice? *wink*)

This week's Tuesday Tip is a simple little trick that brings together two separate "sentiment" stamps to make your own greeting. My daughter just celebrated her 5th birthday with a princess party and I have been needing to get out her thank you notes! I have this cute little stamp set called "Princess Time" which I used for her party invitations. One of the stamps in the set I really liked and said...


But I really needed something that said thank you and then I thought why not combine two stamps into one? So, I found just the right "thank you" from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes.


Using a marker, I colored in the part that said princess using Melon Mambo and then used Elegant Eggplant for the thank you.

And, the final product...

Yesterday, I was working on a card for a new sketch challenge blog I just found called A La Card Monkey. I needed a stamp that would fit just right in a small circle, as well as coordinate with the other stamp I was using.

I took this stamp and colored in the "hello" part only with Rich Razzleberry marker...


And combined it with this stamp (minus the s) using a Pear Pizzazz marker...


The finished product...


Hello friend was the perfect sentiment I was looking for! Wondering how I was able to get these two sentiments to come together just right? I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (LOVE!). It is a fun little tool and if you're interested in watching a video on how to use this tool, view a great one HERE.

This week's sketch for the A La Card Monkey...


And, my take on the sketch...


This is my first time joining in, and I had a good time piecing together this and that to complete the sketch. If you want to join in, you have until Thursday at midnight...so head on over to join!
