3/7 Wow Wedding Card and Stamp Set Surgery

As a demonstrator . . . and even as a very good customer . . . I usually end up with a couple of Sale-a-bration sets that are duplicates. Sometimes I put them in my give away bin and sometimes they under go Stamp Set Surgery! Yummy is such a set that I decided to subject to the ever present Craft Scissors! I kept one set as is which you can see above. Then, I took my duplicate set and started cutting away. I separated words from borders, images from words and even clipped off part of a border to make more of a corner accent. (Notice on the wedding card above.)
Here is the "after" picture of my duplicate set. I happened to have extra wood blocks on hand because some sets I never mount. This makes it so much easier to use partial images or the words only.
I'm truly a fan of unmounted stamps and as soon as my stamp sets retire, the wood is tossed and I remount them on EZ Mount from Sunday International and use them with Acrylic Blocks. The stamps are then stored quite compactly and no one really knows how many sets I have! har har har!!
