Funky chess piece tags and pocket cards!

Howdy Friends!  yesterday was a nice relaxing Saturday. My Husband had a large woodworking project going on in his side (or meager corner) of the basement, my daughters worked on Pearler beads and scrapbooking while watching Once Upon A Time the basement TV and I made bookmarks! All of the stamps used on these tags are from Lost Coast Designs.

I think having that show on in the background influenced my work, the creepy trees and full moon in the background…it is a little Big-Bad Wolf/Red Riding Hoodish…

I spent a lot of time on these, they are so addicting! The tags are actually quick to make but man, they are like potato chips, you can’t stop at just one! Just be warned, after this video you might find yourself going on a tag making binge!

I decided that I should make a card to house my tags but these tags are big so I grabbed my new Business Envelope Kreate-a-Lope and made an envelope, then I took a piece of 8″x9″ paper, folded in half to make a card. I used a scrap of the paper leftover from the envie to make the pocket for the tag!

I love these chess piece stamps from Lost Coast Designs, just when you think you have seen it all in stamping you find a company that has truly unique offerings.

A couple of people on YouTube asked me what laminator I used to laminate the tags and it was a cheapie I bought for $18 at ABC Distributing and I got that one because the packs of 100 refill sheets are under $5 a set. You have to pay shipping so I bought 3 packs of the refill sheets when I got the laminator. It works great too, I’ve been using it about a year now.

That’s it for me today! If you have any questions on this project of the supplies I used just leave a comment! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

40% Off Today Only & a Creature Craft!

Howdy folks! Just wanted to kick things off by letting you know that you can save 40% on everything at Lindsay’ Stamp Stuff today (Thursday) until midnight! I am hosting my monthly craft class at the library tonight and we are making mix & match monster bookmarks. I designed an 8.5″x11″ SVG file with a bunch of creature bodies and heads on it and cut it out of several colors of cardstock. I arranged the SVG die cuts so I could get a variety of monsters with little paper waste. Then I mixed and matched the heads and bodies and glued them together! I ran some pieces through an embossing folder and rubbed them with ink, drew on faces and added yarn hair and googly eyes. I think the kids will enjoy the creative possibilities in this kit-not all shapes are shown here! You can check out my Crafty Creature Kit here.

I had a fabulous time and this craft is easy enough to do with a classroom full of kids (or in my case a library full!) The kit is on sale for $1.20 today and, yes, there is a printable sheet included in the kit for you to use if you don’t have a die cutter. Don’t wait, the sale is today only at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff at MyGrafico! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
