Release Day at Paper Sweeties

Hi, everybody!  I've continued the wedding theme for Release Day at Paper Sweeties.  A while back I bought metal letter stamps and have been trying to find time to try them out.  I also got lucky and stumbled across 5 pretty forks for $1.00 at an antique store.  

I can see a need for improvement, but these aren't too bad for a first try at metal stamping.   

I just ordered a brass head one pound hammer and I think that will help.  I used a light weight hammer for this and had to hit the letter stamp about eight times!

The tag is made up of stamps from three of the new sets:  Wedding Day, Faith Hope Love and Love.

Here are the metal stamps I used.  I hope to make some more things.  Jewelry, perhaps?

Be sure to go by the Paper Sweeties blog to see wonderful ideas using the new stamps and check out the Paper Sweeties store to see the entire June Release.

Thank you for stopping by!
