Happy Mustache Monday!

Hello everyone! For those of you in the US, I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend. I know I am enjoying all of the sunshine here in Michigan.

I created this layout of my friends son using the Mustache Mania stamp set. I loved using it to create this layout because it allowed me to make several pieces to coordinate with his picture!


Mustache Mania stamp set - gel-a-tin stamps
watermark ink - versamark
black ink - studio g
Twill tape - Stampin' Up
black alphas - American Crafts thickers
journaling spot and word banners - echo park This and That Charming line
U - pink paislee


I had fun with the Mustache Mania stamp set! First, I stuck the mustache stamps all over my acrylic block to create a fun background stamp and used Versamark ink to create a tone on tone background paper. I then stamped a mustache in black ink onto cardstock and cut it out. To get a more worn out look with my image, I first stamped onto scrap paper, then onto the cardstock.


I also used the stamps again to create a patterned ribbon. I used repositionable adhesive and stuck the ribbon down to my work surface. I then added my three favorite stamps to my block. I then stamped the images repeatedly on the ribbon.

One of my favorite things about gel-a-tins stamps is that I can add a bunch of the stamps onto the block so that I can stamp a few times and get multiple images. It makes it so that I can get the effect I want without having to stamp each image individually. It makes stamping a background paper a lot faster!
