Getting Started with Cupid Clarence Stamp Set

Now, onto the fun part – playing with stamps! The Cupid Clarence Stamp Set stole my heart the moment I laid eyes on it. The love-themed elements are just too adorable. Pro tip: take your time with the stamping process. It's like creating a beautiful dance on paper. Arrange those images just right, and you're off to a great start!


I stamped Clarence all around the edge of my card front which was a piece of Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock. I stamped him in Versamark Ink before covering it with the Foil Reactive Embossing Powder. Once I heat set the embossing powder I could add the foil and run it through my laminator.

For the center of the card I stamped Clarence again on a scrap of the same cardstock and colored it up with my Ohuhu Alcohol Markers. There is a coordinating die (Cupaid Clarence Die) for the stamp set but I didn't have it. So, I pulled out my paper snips and did a little fussy cutting. I then popped him up in the center of the panel and added my simple love sentiment banner and a heart die cut I had in my stash.
