Hi there… happy you’re here! Take a look at the SO MANY STARS Stamp set above and note the sentiment stamp I circled… now look at the card. See the difference? Today I’m going to show you how to alter sentiment stamps for other occasions using a simple masking technique.

  • Adhere masking material over what you do NOT want
    • Washi Tape and Post-It Notes/Tape are my favorite masking materials
      • They’re readily available in a variety of sizes AND inexpensive
    • Since the sentiment for this card was 3 lines high and I wanted to mask the middle line, washi tape was the clear choice here (seen in the photo above)
  • Ink stamp (as normal)
    • You’re looking at my set-up on the Stamparatus in the photo above
      • All that dark color on the washi tape is ink. In this situation, I chose to throw it away after every card or I would’ve been an inky mess! Often, you can re-use your masking material numerous times- especially with Post-It Notes
  • Remove masking material and stamp… it’s easy!
    • What you see stamped on the Crumb Cake C/S (photo below) is the result

The reason I didn’t just mask “CHRISTMAS’ was because WISHES would’ve been off center- looking odd. I opted to mask the entire line and re-stamp the sentiment on scraps of Pool Party Cardstock, trimming out just the word WISHES to center in the middle-line space (photo above). Now it stands out within the sentiment and matches the (same color) star! 

See how easy it is to alter your sentiments for other occasions?!!

Here’s two other options:

  • Cut your sentiment apart after it’s stamped- this is an alternative to masking
  • A third (permanent) option is to cut the stamp itself apart

The end result is a sentiment no longer just for the holidays, but now ideal for birthdays and graduation, too! wooHOO
