For today's card, I did lots of fun stamping techniques - including stamping and coloring with colored pencils, stamping with Versamark to create a patterned background and stamping a sentiment on a circle die cut. Read on to learn all about how to stamp a sentiment on a circle die cut perfectly every time!

How to stamp a sentiment on a circle die cut perfectly every time!

I don't know about you, but trying to curve a stamp sentiment on a circle die cut is kind of challenging for me. While creating my St. Patrick's Day card, I came up with a way to curve it perfectly every time using a stamp positioning tool such as the MISTI or Stamp Perfect.

1.  Die cut a circle from cardstock.

2.  Place the circle on your stamp tool and hold it in place with the magnets. As always, when using a stamp tool, position the paper firmly into the corner to help secure it in place in case you need to stamp the image more than once.

3.  Close the lid and place the same circle die on top and line it up with the die cut circle. Use a piece of tape, such as Post-It Tape, to help hold it in place.

4.  Open the lid and line your sentiment up on the inside lid of the stamping tool, using the circle die on the outside as a guide.

Along with all the fun stamping, I also used a new to me coloring tool - Sakura Glaze Pens and Metallic Pens! I used a Gold Metallic one to color the gold coins and the buckle on Newton's hat and I used a green Glaze Pen to color the shamrock. I love the shimmer and tiny bit of texture that they add!
