Who wants to win stamps and make an easy card?

Today I have a limited supply project and a giveaway! You can win the stamps by ArtNeko I used to make this card:

sympathyblog

I considered editing down this video to make it about 5 minutes. I thought who needs a 17 minute long video on making such a simple card. I watched the video looking for spots to chop but every bit I though of chopping contained a tip that someone might find useful so if it feels too long feel free to skip ahead or watch it is double speed (click the gear at the bottom to speed it up) I figure it is better to leave the extras in for those who want them.

Supplies:

  1. Art Neko Sympathy stamp & Framed Plum Blossom stamp (use coupon code Lindsay10% for a 10% discount of non-sale rubber!)
  2. Archival Ink
  3. Spectrum Aqua Markers and Tombow Blender Pen
  4. Hot Press Watercolor Paper
  5. Cardstock (kraft) and pattern paper scrap
  6. Grosgrain Ribbon
  7. Adhesive (ATG and hot glue)

Note about the Bow Making Tool, I was having some technical issues on my shophandmade store where I sold the Bow Making Jigs my hubby made, if you would like to order one you can send me an email at artstudiosofbangor@yahoo.com and put “bow making jig order” in the subject line and I can send you a PayPal invoice. The Jigs are $20 plus shipping ($6 US Priority Mail, $16 international first class) and handcrafted from beautiful, durable hardwood.

I hope you found the tutorial on blending and all the random tips useful! If you want to win the stamps I used simply leave a comment below, I will draw a winner at random in one week (3/31/15) and this giveaway is open to everyone on the planet!  Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  45. Is there a chart showing which pencils, watercolors, inks, etc to use with which papers??? When to use blenders, or rating different mediums good to bad, least expensive, most expensive.

    It might serve as a good jumping off point when starting from scratch. And yes it would be one persons opinion, but I would much rather value someone who has spent a life time using these various products over a company trying to make a buck.

    I know you have talked a little about these things in various videos, but it would sure help to see all of it in one or two charts (or however you would want to relay the info)

    Thanks for all your hard work over the years.

Cut a disc out of thin cardboard to slip on top of the tape and under the little grip area. I couldn’t get a disc to work, so I cut two partial discs, slipped them in place, and taped them together. The cardboard holds the tape in place much better.

  96. Lindsay-I had the same problem with my ATG gun, even using Scotch brand tape. I took a piece of cardboard backing from something I bought and cut a circle with my nesting dies. I’m not at home, so I can’t tell you the exact size, but 4″ rings a bell. I cut a smaller circle in the middle, the same size as the plastic center piece. I then shoved it on next to the tape and made sure it was caught under the little tabs there. The ATG works better now than it ever did! Let me know if this works for you.

    1. a sympathy card offers comfort, it lets someone know they are thinking of them, a shared sorrow is half a sorrow. A shraed joy is double the joy:) I think is is anyway:)
