Have you heard of the technique “word patching”?  Most likely not because I believe I made it up!  I was working with a new stamp set called Crafting Forever yesterday and I wanted the card to say DEAR FRIENDS FOREVER.  But I didn’t have a stamp that said that, so I stamped two sentiments, one from the new set and one from another set and then cut out the words I needed and patched them how and where I wanted them on the card.  I’m tickled…. Now the endless possibilities have become even more endless.

I’m loving this stamp set, I started creating with it by just using one piece from the set.  I started with the flower pot.  In the set the flower pot is full of paint brushes and other crafting tools.  So I just cut out the pot and used it by itself.  After I watercolored the pot I filled it with a flower.

This new set doesn’t have a flower image in it so I looked over my other sets and found that the Birthday Blooms set not only has the perfect flower in it, it has the words I needed too.  The word DEAR in the Birthday set matches the word FRIENDS in the crafting set, font and all.

I’ve made two other cards for my display board in my shop using this set, you will need to pop in to see those.

Live Loved, Beverlee
