Wink Layout and Eight Stamp of the Month Ideas

Sometimes when we look at a stamp set like the November Stamp of the Month, all we see is the literal images in the set.  For instance, this set is a fun New Year set with glasses and sentiments to go with it.  You might initially think, "I don't really need a New Year set."  Well, you might be surprised because there are so many other ways to use this set.  This layout is a great example. I used the little starburst backgrounds on some of the red pieces to create a fun pattern, and I used the the word "clink" to create the word "wink" for my layout title.  The lesson is to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX when looking at a stamp set. There are so many more options than might originally meet the eye.

Here's the set (and 9 ideas of out of the box ways to use it):

  1. the word "cheers" could be just "cheer" (leave off the s) for a cheerleading card or layout
  2. the starburst stamps are great for any background, or for a star for a Christmas card
  3. the party invitation stamp is great for any party
  4. the bubbles are fun for a baby bath layout
  5. turn the glasses over and they are great for a vase for some stamped flowers
  6. the banner flags are great for any project
  7. you could use the martini glass for an hour glass. Just stamp it twice, cut out the large end on one of them and adhere it over the small end on your first image and it looks perfectly like an hour glass
  8. "clink" could be used like I did, as "wink" but it could also be used as "ink" (for a layout about your love of stamping, etc) or as "link" for a layout about family ties, or as "pink" for a layout about your daughter's favorite color, or "mink" for your new coat, or "rink" for a skating layout, or "sink" for a layout about doing dishes  (I want to do a layout about me standing on a chair at the sink at age 5 washing dishes, and my baby sister not ever doing them until she was big enough to stand at the sink herself {oldest child complaints! lol}).
How's that for a list of fun ideas?  See what I mean? Think outside the box!  This set just became much more versatile!

Here are a few more details of the layout:

The best news of all is that this set can be yours (in November only) for only $5 (before shipping and tax) with every $50 you order.  Order $100, get 2...and so on. When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before checking out.   "Cheers" to that!

Karen, don't forget about Blink! That's a great layout for kids who are growing up too fast. Don't blink!
