Stretch your stamps! (Neat and Tangled)

Hi there!

xoxo (Neat and Tangled)

I'm here and on the Neat and Tangled blog this morning, with a little tutorial on how to stretch your stamps. The newest release features this sweet elephant, but I want to show you how to remove the swinging girl so that the elephant can be used on his own.

First of all, you need to ink up your stamp, but wipe away the part of the trunk where the string is:

Next, you will want to die cut the image:

For the last step, you'll need to use a black pen (I used a copic multi-liner pen so that I could safely use copic markers to color the elephant afterwards) to draw in the missing lines.

Then, with just a few scissor snips, you can break the elephant free from his swinging duties:

It's a simple way to be able to use your elephant in a new way! I have him blowing hearts for Valentine's Day, and the XOXO sentiment from Just Because sends extra hugs and kisses to the recipient.

I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
