Masking Vs Fussy Cutting When Adding Accessories

DSC02444Hi there! This is Lydia and I am so super happy to be sharing with you my first post here at Sweet Stamp Shop 🙂

Have you ever looked at those cards with the cute critters wearing accessories and thought ‘Wow that’s cute… I’m so doing that!’, only to get back home and wonder how they did it? I have had many of those moments trying to figure out how things are done. So to help you guys out that nodded I have put together a little video to help show you how you too can add accessories to characters.

How cute is that lil hippo?!?! He and all the accessories are from the set ‘Too Hip‘, this is such a great set for man’s cards…. and who doesn’t sometime struggle with those? It is so fun to play around with the accessories on this set and because of the way that all the sets are sized these hats with work on all of the sweet characters in all of the Sweet Stamp Shop sets.

To finish off my cards I wanted a big sentiment to balance off my card a little more so I went with the ever popular and useful ‘Elegant Sentiments‘- this is such a great go to set that can be used for almost any card that you make and as you can see they even work on guy cards too 🙂

I’ll leave you now with a lil close up of those two adorable hippos in all there glory…..
