The Label Love stamp set is one of my new favourites (not least because you can get the stamp set and matching punch as a bundle* with 15% off)
When I’ve shared it with my customers though, they’ve commented that they’re not sure about it because they wouldn’t use all the sentiments.
I agree that some of the sentiments won’t get quite as much use as others (I don’t generally make as many wedding or baby cards as I do birthday cards – the birthday and just for you sentiments are getting tons of use). My top tip though, is to use all the labels as frames for other sentiments. As just one example, the Mr & Mrs stamp can be selectively inked around the border edges with a marker and then stamped, as on this card.
The card base is an A6 landscape of Old Olive. Quatrefancy Specialty DSP (130141) was adhered to the bottom of a mat of Early Espresso card, with Strawberry Slush hand coloured Organza Ribbon wrapped around the upper part (as for the Gently Falling card). A tiny strip of Old Olive card was adhered above the DSP and then the mat was adhered to the front of the card. Three of the Mr & Mrs Labels from Label Love* (W130619 or C130622) were selectively stamped and punched out with the Artisan Label* (130920). The Best Wishes sentiment from Petite Pairs (W128706 or C122497 – there’s 25% off this set during July) was stamped in the middle of one of the Labels using Strawberry Slush ink and Pressed Clay flowers were added to the centres of the others before popping all the labels up on dimensionals on the card front. A bow of matching ribbon was added with a Mini Glue Dot to finish.

I’ll be back with more examples of slightly altered Label Love stamps over the coming weeks.
