Paper Pumpkin Tweak

I really enjoy making cards to send to my family, especially for birthdays.  However, I almost always have to tweak those gorgeous StampinUP! images or greetings to try to get a laugh.  (Especially when I have to send a card to one of my very quick-witted brothers.)  When I saw the Alphabet Rotary stamp in the new catalog, I knew I had to have it.  The letters are small enough that you can really get a whole snarky sentence on the front of the card, and it allows you to stamp a couple of words at a time.

You have to embrace the fact that these letters are not going to stamp perfectly, but it does help to ink with a marker.  I've also found that you really have to go against one of the main rules of stamping- no rocking.  You have to rock up and down to make sure you get the whole letter stamped.  The more you play with it, the easier it gets.  And it really makes sense to make more than one card at a time, especially if you are stamping quite a few words.  The results are similar to the old school typewriter, or maybe even a ransom note or message from a stalker?  Regardless, right up my alley!
