Hero Hoops – Using small stamps for big impact

Sharing is caring!

This sweet mini card project shows how you can combine stamps and dies from different brands to achieve a cohesive look in a short time. Today I am featuring Embroidery Hoops die by Waffleflower, Sunshine texture stamp by Darkroom Door, Out of This World stamps by Lawn Fawn, and Distress Oxide Inks.

I’m often asked how to use small stamps so they don’t get lost on a card, so I thought I’d show how you can draw focus to a little stamp using the gorgeous Sunshine texture stamp and framing it all up with the fun Embroidery Hoops die.  This is also an excellent stash-busting project, so dig into all those leftover bits & bobs from previous projects and turn them into gorgeous mini cards!

Did you know that I offer a pre-order service? If an item is out of stock (or not stocked at all), I can order them in especially for you from most stamp companies.  You can click the ‘Pre-order’ link on the website any time to place your pre-order, and all the details are on the form.
So … now that we’ve looked at all the pretty cards … it’s time for the show!

I hope you have fun combining your stamp sets and getting the most use from those smaller stamps 🙂
