Creating your own sentiments...

I couldn't quite believe it when I saw this week's challenge over at Less Is More which is called "Sentiment Focus".

A while ago I created my own sentiments and had them made into stamps...

S5

The beauty of this is that you can create your own perfect sentiment for your project.


S3

In order for the focus to be on the sentiment I stamped it over a fab decorative design. This one is by Judikins and one of my fave's.


S4


These are for my own personal use, but I urge you to give it a go, it is very satisfying!

Sarita, you don´t know, how often I tried to get sentiment stamps in German and couldn´t find any of the so needed words out there. I would love to get them as clear stamps, but can´t find anybody who can makes them here.
Can you tell me, who makes your stamps?

Your card and your stamps are wonderful. :)

Hugs, Tina
