Little Tees Tip Sheet!! (and candy!)

Attention: there is a blog candy offering at the end of his post (it's long, but worth reading) :)
365 days, 365 ways!! Actually, I don't think I could ever run out of ways to customize these "Little Tees"...feel free to copy and paste/print, link these tips :)

Your outlined tee is a blank canvas and will soon become the most versatile stamp in your collection! The classic tee will never go out of style, and you can make them look completely "old school" or up to the minute in fashion. Stamp it on Dp and you've got an easy to cut paper piece patterned tee!
All stamps in this set will fit on all three shirts, and most stamps in the rest of your collection are likely to fit in the center (Sample above uses my outlined tee and Gina K's juicy cherries from the the new "Free with Three" set "Summer Harvest"). Your stamps that are larger than the tee look stunning on it when masked, like a real screen printed tee, see this sample.

Use the short sleeved shirts separately or together for some unique fun looks! When two step stamping the line and bold t-shirt images, a stampamajig will ensure perfect placement, but if you want to "eyeball", stamp your outline image, then ink your bold image and peek under lining up the points of each side of the COLLAR and then lower onto paper. (Lining it up from the bottom or either side at the sleeve can wind too high or low, at least for me!!)

Techniques with the bold tee:
Faux shaving cream (will show sample on my blog)
"tie dye" with markers, spectrum pads or ink spots
Rock N roll for shading
Ink up with spectrum pads to have blending colors or use ink spot to make the top one color and the bottom another.
Kiss stamps from the set or others in collection for a screen print tee without needing to mask or backgrounds.
Kiss on backgrounds for a patterned tee.
Ink up stamp and kiss on uninked background pattern or image to take ink away before stamping.
Use your markers direct to stamp to doodle on designs, spots make stripes etc and stamps in the perfect image of a tee!
A dark or black bold tee look terrific with greetings and images embossed on them in lighter colors.

The ringer tee is great for:
athletic shirts (use your team's color on the sleeves)
masculine
cold weather cards.
Layer it under the short sleeved tees for a trendy look!
Make a tunic or solid tee by stamping the ringer on the backside of DP or colored CS, cutting, and then flipping over for a solid print.
Cut the ringer tee in half to make a jacket or just the bottom for a pencil skirt. (Cathy Tidwell's "Cleverness")

Accent your tees with the following embellishments:
embossing powders
flocking
adhesive rhinestones
punched decals
liquid appliqué
Versamark with Spicas
Stickle accents
stickers
appliqué (embroidered) iron ons
brads
eyelets
halfback pearls
Primas and silk flowers
rub ons etc!
(your favorite embellishment here!)

Ideas for the smaller images:
Paper piece the cause ribbon or cut out ribbon for accent.
"Hang" glasses on shirt collar
Use glasses, flowers and tiara to accessorize your happy face.
Use the glasses on other people or animal stamped images (yes, they fit several of my designs!)
Use your favorite images or greetings on the shirts (this will give a "fresh feel" to an old favorite image in your stamp collection)!
Stamp the stars, flowers or "tiara" like flourish above and/or below your greetings or into the corners of your mats.
Use them to decorate tiny die cut or punched tags for your projects.
Stamp your favorite image below the "I heart".
Write in a name or stamp the letters of your beloved or (things you love) under the "I heart"
Use the lightning bolt with all your "supers" ("Shazam!")
Make custom DP.
Use images or greetings without the tee shirts (fun accents)
Check out this amazing list of cause ribbon colors to go with the looped ribbon image, if there's a cause it HAS a color!! you can hit Ctrl F to search for your cause :)

Alter your tee by:
Draw in a few lines to make new silhouette on your basic tee and cut out: this basic shape with a little ink and thought can become a bathing suit, bra, nighty, apron (for your crafty friend or "domestic goddess") asymmetrical top, tube top, halter etc, the sky's the limit!! Enjoy being your own designer!
Cut off the collar cuff to make a dressier scoop-necked tee.
Trim or rip the bottom or neck for distressed tee.
Make a ringer out of the short sleeved tee by coloring in the collar and sleeves (or cut off the sleeves of the ringer).
Mask or cut another bottom of the shirt below the full image to look like a shirt and skirt.
Belt it or give it a high waist (think maternity!) with a ribbon for a trendy look or to create a mini dress.
Make pants or jammy bottoms by stamping the tee again, drawing a line in the middle and cutting off the sleeves.
Make a full skirt by cutting off the sleeves and attaching underneath the tee.
Make a straight skirt or skimmer shorts by stamping a second tee, inverting the image and cutting at the waist (dived with a line in the middle for shorts)
Stamp on magazine pic or photo of folded fabric to get a pieced tee with realistic folds (Gina K's "Genius")
Shade in strategic spots to make your tee curvier, with child etc or trim to make more masculine/"boxy"!

Use the "Let's hang out!" with your hanger and try:
tying ribbons on the hanger
add mini clothespins to it
emboss your hangers with metallic EPs
mask the tees onto the hanger
"hang" the hanger on a brad, rhinestone
make a clothesline with string, hemp, or wire, or a fashionable clothing rod made from a hatpin

Other fun stuff:
Cut out and link ringer t-shirt arms together
Group your tees together, overlapping by masking
Paper piecing on solid or DP for quick, no-coloring tees.
Make a reverse mask (by cutting out outline and saving the "outside")and stamps large backgrounds or collage stamps/small images for a patterned tee.
Many punched shapes tags fit on the tee! Think circles, stars, flowers, etc
The happy face fits in a 3/4 " circle punch!
Print out your favorite saying or even a small favorite photo on the computer and then stamp the tee outline around it.

Some fun phrase combos using just the greetings in this set (to put on a tee or by itself!):
sports girl
sports mom
supergirl
supermom
diva mom
birthday girl
birthday diva
chocolate diva
U go girl
mom U ROCK
go girl
rock star
super star
have a super day
super baby on board
miss U
love U
super U
diva U
U rock
have a super birthday
I heart sports
I heart chocolate
I heart mom
I love to shop
I Heart ROCK
I MISS (all of the above!)
anything I missed...?

Gift ideas:
Create a smaller version of your friend or child's favorite tee with the stamps.
Create "dolls" using your photos with the people cut out, sized to wear the tees. Make one for every family member to have the whole gang to play with!
Personalize one to make a tag for your luggage or gym bag.
Make ATCs or tin trading cards (see our Gina K swap, closed now, but still fun!) with the tees.
Make a card to slide a necklace through for an elegant gift presentation.
stamp on a laundry bag or pillow case for dirty clothes or a sleepover.
Make charms with Polyshrink out of the tees for:
bracelets
fun magnets
earrings,
necklaces,
cause ribbon pins,
key rings etc for all your supermoms, friends etc!
Let kids and teens go to town expressing themselves creating the shirts of their dreams!
Decorate back to school items for teens and tweens: pencils, covers, locker mirrors etc.
Make a tee tag or card to coordinate with a real personalized t-shirt gift.
Favors for party goody bags or sports events.
Make mini place cards tees with guest names on them for the table, fun for dinner or a party.
Personalize kid's stuff with a stamped tee and his or her name on it.
Make fun invitations with the tees customizing to the theme or required attire for your party.
Make a his and her tees card for a new couple or anniversary.
Stamp on fabric to make an iron on tee for a tee!
Make custom stamped wrapping paper tissue, and gift tags with the tees when gifting clothing.
Accent scrapbook pages with tees that have captions dates of the event you're scrapping , or a tee to match the ones in your photos!

fashion magazines
the mall
a real T-shirt shop!

  133. I had something similar happen to me the other day and left me shaking my head. I publish through Live Writer and not blogger (way easier to make it look like you want) and had a dupe post and then issues getting the one I wanted to go away to do so. Just know it's not you or your kids, something is amiss! I said in my last plea uh, post for the blog candy that I will be purchasing this product when I mean, if I don't win. I love the idea of this! Thanks for the chance!

  138. Well . . . I thought I commented here, but I don't see my pic, so I guess I posted in the wrong spot. Good thing you told us your story. Blogger has been really wierd this week. It's not you honestly!

    Lots of GREAT tips for this set, Mel, and I still would LOVE the Jumping for Joy set, and now IF I win (big IF) . . . I love this Scor Mat, too. Just ordered my Scor-Pal from a TAC demo and friend. What a nice addition that would be. :) Kel
