Be Merry

Be Merry

This is a quick and easy card using one of our single stamps called Be Merry.  It is very similar to our tag from the Chalk Talk set and so I was able to use the Chalk Talk framelit to cut the tag opening. I stamped the image (masking off the to-from at the bottom) I cut it out by hand (it is larger than the framelit) and then I slipped the top of the cut piece under just the metal piece that makes the cut out. The rest of the card piece was laying on top of the framelit and I ran it through the Big Shot.

I added a big bow using the 1″ grosgrain from the Holiday Catalog and a few Candy dots to fill in the open space at the bottom. Quick and easy!

Here is a festive card for the Holidays! I wish the camera could catch the sparkle better, it is so much prettier in person. I love our glimmer paper for that reason, you get the glitter without the mess and the sparkle is just FABULOUS. In my head that sounded a lot like Jim Carrey with a finger snap at the end! The little brad is one of our glimmer brads, and even though the bow, ink and paper are Cherry Cobbler, somehow the red glimmer paper works and doesn’t look too “red”.

I hope you get to stamp something Christmasy today! [Yes, that is a word. It’s not in the dictionary, but it should be. Cheery, snowy, Christmasy. (Spelling may vary depending on my mood)]

Wonderfall Thoughts

This is a card that we made for stamp camp last year that I never posted. We used a lot of tools for this one as you can tell from the supply list! It wasn’t a difficult card though, just stamping, sponging and die cutting. The die we used wasn’t a framelit, but rather a bigz die. The stamps are made to work with  the die; so the easiest way to use them together is to cut the card stock first, and then lay the diecut on the inked stamp with it facing image up. Then rub from the back of the paper.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I have had to emboss this set every time I have used it. It just doesn’t need much else and the heat embossing is so pretty. The flowers and leaves are hand cut. That seems like a lot of work, but they really cut pretty quickly. I just popped them on a dry embossed background (retired folder) to finish the card.

I hope you get to stamp today!

This is just a prototype of this card using washi tape. My Wishing You set won’t get here till Monday and that is the actual set I am using for this card. I am moving the layout just a little and there is a cute Santa from the Tag It set that can be used on this card also, plus varying backgrounds.

Wetlands

Here is a a simple but pretty card that we made at Stamp Camp this month.

The background is made by sponging (with daubers) ink onto a clear acrylic block and then spritzing with Alcohol. It needs to be fairly wet. Allow the colors to run together a bit and then “stamp” the block on your card stock to create the Background. I suggest letting it dry completely and then ironing the back of the card stock or pressing it in a book for a few days to straighten out any warping caused by the alcohol.

I stamped the goose image once on the background once it was dry and then stamped it again on Very Vanilla card stock. I used blender pens to color in the goose and then cut it out (just the body) and popped it up over the original stamped image. The sentiment, button and linen thread finished off the card.

I hope you are enjoying this lovely fall weather that is inspiring my creations! Be sure to check out the new weekly specials, packaging bundles and MDS specials for November. You can view them on my Specials Page.

Another Thank You

Another Thank You

We used the embossing resist technique on this simple card that we made for Stamp Camp last month. Embossing resist is an easy technique where you emboss your focal image in clear ink on your white or vanilla card stock and then stamp over it with your background images. The ink won’t stick to the Clear Embossing (after it has been heated). When you wipe the ink away from your embossed image (with a soft tissue) the original card stock color shows through.

On this card we stamped the large Thank you image from Another Thank You on Very Vanilla card stock and then over stamped it with the background leaves from Gently Falling. We then sponged any remaining uninked cardstock with a light rub of So Saffron to make the entire image pop. Then we just layered that piece on our Old Olive card stock base. Easy Peasy.

Thanks for looking

Spooky Treat Bag

Bite Me

Most of the projects from my newsletter are different projects that you won’t see on my blog, but I had to share this one here. I love stamping directly on the treat bags and adding a simple tag.

The framelit from Chalk Talk is perfect for that. Not only does it have the opening at the top that lets you just pop it over your ribbon, since it is a framelit you can make it any length you want. I lengthened it to make the sentiment from Halloween Bash fit.

This bag holds 4 large Chocolate Chip cookies.  These bags are food safe, but to keep the oil from the cookies off the bag, I first packaged them in the food safe gusseted cello bags (on the clearance rack for only $1.59 for 25 bags!)
