A video tutorial by request…

Happy Monday folks! Last week a reader asked me to do a video on using the Inkadinkado Stamping gear to make cards, well, I could not disappoint, here is the completed card with the background I made on the video.

 

And here is a quick video on stamping a small background with the Stamping Gear.

How’d you like that smooth transition a the end? That’s me, smooth 🙂 Here is a close up of the glittered focal point that I showed you on Friday’s video, I am really into glitter now, I hope to have some glittery decor projects for you later this week, til next time happy crafting!

 

Another Stamping Tool YOU can make!

I have always had a problem with evenly stamping a background. Oh, I can stamp a random background just fine but a lined-up pattern….no dice. So, inspired by the new inkadinkado stamping gear I made a tool to stamp straight backgrounds and I used it to stamp the background in this card:

 

Here is a quick video to show you how to make it and use it, easy peasy!

Here is a photo of the two tools I made. I made one to work with my inkadinkado stamping gear paddle and one to work with my home-made stamp machine paddle:

 

Give it a try and you will never stamp a crooked background again (unless you want to that is!) Til next time happy crafting!

FYI, the stamps used in this card are: Fairy (Crafter’s Companion), Sentiment (Stampin’ Up!), Frame (Rubber Stampede), Background small flourish (inkadinkado), Background round stamp (Inque Boutique), background cover-a-card (Impression Obsession) PS-after stamping my background with my homemade tool I stamped a large swirl pattern over the entire panel.

Stamping gears video tutorial & We’ve got eggs!

***Let me preface this blog post. I bought something a wee bit expensive. I have wanted it for 8 months AND I used a coupon. Keep that in mind if you want to give me any crap about it LOL! ***

Howdy folks! What an egg-citing week! My hens started laying…or at least one of them has, we have been finding beautiful little eggs in the bag of wood shavings! They have yet to try out their nesting boxes though 🙂 Also for excitement the new Inkadinkado Stamping gear is available for sale! Now, I’m usually not a “wow! I’ve gotta have it” kind of crafter but when I saw videos of this tool in action from last winter’s CHA I knew I wanted it. Don’t you think it is cruel to make people wait 8 months before they can buy it? You might remember that I was so excited for this tool to come out that I made a homemade version, you can see that tutorial here. Anyway, here is a scrapbook page I made with the tool using feather stamps I already had:

 

The one caveat of this tool is that is would not work with clear stamps (as is) because the stamps are not thick enough BUT at the end of the video I will show you how to make a simple adaptor so you can use the stamping gear with ALL of your clear and unmounted stamps. Check out this tool straight out of the package-I am amazed at how easy it is to use with no practise!

here is a photo of the medallion I made in the video using both the Inkadinkado Stamping gear and my homemade version, I used the stamps that came in the starter kit and the circle wheel.

 

Here is the background paper I made with feather stamps I already had and the oval wheel. Oops, I stamped a feather upside down he he! I love these feathers, I’m not sure who makes them, I’ve had them for years!

 

And the finished page:

 

Looks like fun huh, it was! I purchased the intro kit (hold on to your hats, it retails for $50!) with a coupon at ACmoore and I have seen it on the Inkadinkado website here they hade 30% off and free shipping so you can wait for a deal to buy it making it much more reasonable. I love how I (now after making my adaptor) can use it with all of my stamps! I give it an A for AWESOME! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
