Imagine That! Stamping on your printed images

 How do you add that personal touch to your cards, Layouts and altered items? My answer is stamps, I have always gone for a stamp first and ask questions later. If you think about it, its the perfect addition to your Imagine projects! I added a very simple greeting to the already adorable image and changed the effect of the card in one easy step.

This easel card could be anything I want it to be, a Birthday card, a welcome to the neighborhood greeting ...or anything in between! Don't stop with a sentiment either, how about using a background stamp to your image to give it a weathered appearance or even to create a collage?!!! Personalizing is a snap!

The cherries on this project were coated with crystal effects, one of my favorite ways to make an object stand out or look really special....now I have to tell you that the photos look a wee bit cloudy because it was dark when I snapped my pictures and I just didn't capture a great image, but they are crisp and shiny I promise!

The last few weeks Cindy has been making a tag to share with you on Imagine that Tuesdays, and today she has an Imagine project using stamps to enhance the printed image. Go check it out!
