Stamp "Surgery"

A few days ago, I performed stamp surgery on one of my new Sale-A-Bration stamps, So Hoppy Together.


Stamp-surgery-2I knew that I would get more use out of this little frog stamp without the unicycle so I took an Exacto knife and cut it off! And, if I decide that the unicycle works well with my project, I can still piece it together and use it that way.

Here's the card that I made with my "new" stamp!


  • Cut Pool Party card base to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".
  • Cut another later of Pool Party to 4" x 5 1/4".  Use the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add some "waves".
  • Cut Whisper White to 2" x 5 1/4".
  • Stamp frogs across so that he's turning flips! Use Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp.
  • Color frogs with Blends.  Outlined with Pool Party Light to give a shadow/grounding effect.
  • Cut two strips (3/4" x 5 1/4") of the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack in Granny Apple Green and adhere behind the top and bottom Whisper White strip as shown.
  • Adhere to textured Pool Party piece.
  • Tie ribbon below the main image.
  • Adhere this entire piece with stamped image and ribbon to the card front.
  • See how I finished the inside of the card below.

Thank you so much. I didn't want the unicycle in a card I recently made, but hadn't thought of stamp surgery. Can't wait to put the scissors to the rubber.
