Hello! For the month of January, the Imagine team has been working with the theme “New Beginnings.” For me, a new beginning happens each and every day, and I like to start the day off with breakfast. I’m going to sound like a public service announcement, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day…so why not start it off with a smile? I was inspired by Law Fawn’s Love ‘N Breakfast stamps, and I thought that Radiant Neon Amplify! would make some fun egg accents on a card.

1. Cut a 3″ x 3″ square of Canson Mixed Media Paper. Stamp the tray and eggs & bacon on to the square using VersaFine in Onyx Black.
You’ll see in the photo above that my sentiment is too long for my square. So I decided to stamp it out in sections. Of course, I don’t want to cut my sentiment, so I masked parts of it off with washi tape. You can use regular tape too, but the washi shows up better in photographs.
2. I worked from the end of the sentence backwards. It was just easier to stamp out the words where they needed to be that way. Above, you’ll see that I left the “with a smile” exposed, and covered the rest with the washi tape. Ink up the words, remove the washi tape, and stamp below the tray, in between the legs.
3. Next, I covered everything but “morning” and stamped that right above the tray. Remember to remove the washi tape before you stamp on to your project. Below shows the finished sentiment. I also added the same small heart that I put on the vase to the left side of the sentiment.
