Letter Substitution


Day 10 is all about letter substitution. I have a stamp set by Maymay Made It called Noel. It is designed for letter substitution as it comes with Christmas images to substitute for the letter O or the E. I pulled out a stamp from The Stamps of Life penguins4Christmas, and used the gift for the letter E. To decorate the gift boxes I found a piece of patterned paper that had gold foil gifts all over it and I used it for inspiration. I used a gold Sharpie marker and a gold gel pen to decorate the boxes, like the patterned paper. I added dots all over the background with the gold gel pen, then added a strip of gold foil to the bottom of the card front.

  1. Gorgeous card. I really like how you used the packages to substitute for the E. The all over gold and the gold strip at the bottom are beautiful.

    1. Thanks Judy! The letters and packages were a bit different in thickness of the photopolymer, as they are different companies. Good thing they were on the MISTI, as it took quite a bit to get the package fully stamped. It was fun.

  2. I love this. You have done a fantastic job in design and execution. Beautiful and a winner in my book.

  3. That package image works great with the letter substitution technique covered in the class. Love how you decorated the package with the gold pens; I originally thought you used patterned paper. The dots you added also look great! Well done!

    1. Thanks, Lisa. It looks like the piece of patterned paper I pulled out to use for inspiration as there were dots on the paper and packages with all sorts of stripes.

    1. Thank you! I enjoyed the gifts. I have another one waiting to be finished, but I will wait. I substituted for the O as the stamp set showed.
