I “mustache” you a question…

In the catalog, there’s a single stamp of four mustaches that my husband insisted that I buy. It’s a new stamp this year. I cut the four mustaches apart and mounted them as clear mount stamps, so that I can use them separately more easily. I really wanted to use this stamp set but hadn’t thought of just what I wanted to do with it. Then one day I was out eating dinner with my family and had the thought “I wonder if anyone makes mustache shaped candies?” I pulled out my smart phone right then and there and within five minutes I’d located and purchased two tins of mustache candies.

With the candies on the way, I then had to figure out a card layout that would incorporate the stamp set and the candies. I didn’t have many of the 1×8 cello bags left, so that was out. Then I remembered I had four boxes of treat cups! With Valentine’s Day coming up, the heart shaped ones would be perfect. And if I made enough cards I could take them as swaps to the San Antonio regional meeting AND clear out some space on my shelf. Win-win!

I decided that I wanted to use the words “I mustache you a question” on the outside of the card and the something about “be my Valentine” on the inside of the card. On a whim, I looked over the list of My Digital Studio digital downloads and was so excited to find that the Many Mustaches set comes as a digital download and even included word stamps for “I” and “you a question”. Perfect! Then I found the digital stamp brush set Delightful Dozen which had the cute “Be My Valentine” complete with a little heart (to coordinate with my heart treat cup).

So instead of stamping the card as I had intended, I was able to use the My Digital Studio program to quickly print out the card fronts and insides on Whisper White Cardstock. Easy! Then I just had to cut them down to size and add my mustache candy filled heart treat cup on top. I was able to make a dozen or so cards in a very short amount of time.

I took them to trade at the regional meeting yesterday and submitted one to the display boards. Out of all the submissions (I don’t know how many people submitted a card, but there were 1400 people in attendance and tons of display boards), my mustache card was chosen by Shelli Gardner, the Stampin’ Up! CEO, as one of her favorite cards. I won a $50 gift certificate. How cool is that?
