Vintage A Muse - Snappy!


A Muse's 9th anniversary birthday bash has begun over on the A Muse blog and today we are sharing sneak peeks (amuse-bouche) of the new "Vintage" clear set! I decided to use the camera image (which was called "Snappy" when it was a wood-mounted stamp). To make the film strip, I punched three squares out of a piece of Slate notecard. Then used my piercing bug and Scor-Pal to make a pierced line above and below the squares. Note - to get the dots to look white, you need to run the piercing bug along the back (white) side of the cardstock. Then I layered a piece of white cardstock behind my filmstrip and stamped Snappy using three different ink colors. Since it's a clear stamp, centering them within the squares was a breeze! Now, just for fun - wanna see two more of my cards made looong ago with Snappy?  Check them out here and here (LOL)! Stay tuned, I have more to share over the next few days!
