Using the Cheeky Modern Pop Collection at Michaels - Series
Good day, Crafters. Today is going to be the first post of my Cheeky Modern Pop series. In this series I will show you how to use the Cheeky Modern Pop collection from Michaels and hopefully give you some inspiration to jump start you on your own projects.
I love going to Michaels and finding new products to use. Don't get me wrong, I love my happy mail from Scrapbook Pal and Spellbinders but there is nothing like going in to a brick and mortar store and being able to browse. Being able to lift up the corner of a paper pad and looking at the designs, or seeing the stamp set in my hand really makes the deal for me and it's instant satisfaction.
"Lucky You" set
Anyway, let's get to the meat and potatoes. For this first post I'm going to use the fortune cookie stamp set. The set itself has smiling sushi, a bowl of miso soup, two fortune cookies and some matching pun-y sentiments. It also has a matching die for the larger cookie.
My favorite stamps from this set are the two sushi rolls. I don't eat a lot of sushi but it is a fun treat every now and then. The sushi with the fish is called nigiri and honestly, the topping (the fish) is the nigiri. The rice under it is just rice. The roll beside it is called uramaki. If you want to know a little more about sushi and the other rolls I'll link to a good article here that tells you all about it.
For whatever reason, Michaels' website is super hard to search. I have tried to link to this set and I can't find it anywhere but it is definitely there when I go to the store. Does anyone else have the problem or not being able to find it online? Leave a comment below.
I made a few cards using this set and you can see those throughout this post. Watch the video to see how I made them. I'll also have one bonus video that will be released on IGTV for my followers on Instagram. It covers how I fixed a mistake on one of the cards. Hint: I stamped my sentiment way too hard and caused the lines to bulge.
