live charm

Welcome to day 3 of the Sweet ‘n Sassy February release Blog Hops!

Today we’re featuring the new Inspirational Word Art 1 stamp set.  This is a 4″x6″ set of sentiments, the first of a series.  I love it and can’t wait to see what Korin comes up with next!  The sentiment I used was shrunk down on my shrink plastic charm that hangs in a cutout window.  (EDIT…I have tips on using shrink plastic HERE).

I used the same die from the Decorative Plaque dies to cut the window and also diecut the charm.  You can see how much the charm shrank after heating it.

I also stamped some flowers on it from the new Bloom & Grow stamp set.

It has been a while since I used shrink plastic but it still remains to be one of my favorite techniques.  These sentiments are perfect to use with it!

Check out more samples made by our DT in the links on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog.
