All My Love.....{Double Duty Stamping}

Hello my blogging friends!  Hope all is well with you all!  The card I am sharing today is a little shabby/rustic number that is simple but with a touch of elegance. Hope you like it.....

The sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Love Lives Here Holiday stamp set.  I did a little bit of selective stamping for this little goodie.  I just taped off the "for Christmas" portion of the stamp while I inked the stamp.  Before stamping the sentiment I simply took the tape off and stamped as usual.  The only portion that stamped was the "All My Love" and there ya go!  I just doubled the use of my stamp since I didn't have to use it solely for a Christmas project.  This is a clever use of maximizing your stamps.  Try looking around at your own stash to see what stamps you could use this technique with.  I bet you'd be surprised how many options open up for you!!

Thanks for stopping by to visit!!
