Watch the video to see how it’s done and then try it yourself! I did use a die for the pop up parts but they would be easy enough to hand cut. I actually came across these when I was doing my year-end supply assessment and decided I really wanted to give them a try!

Did you know you could make an ornament with this?

Hi friends! When I designed the Let it Snow stamp set for Rubber Stamp Tapestry I knew that I wanted to be able to more with it than just snow globes, that’s why I drew ornament hangers along with the other elements in the set. A viewer who purchased the stamp set asked me if I could show her how to make an ornament so today I’ll do just that!

Another fun idea would be to use the globe as a frame and put a photo behind it for a photo card. I love stamps that do double duty and coming up with ideas to use with my older stuff. I hope you give some of these ideas a try and til next time happy crafting!

Stamped & Painted One Layer Cards!

Hi friends! Today I’m going to show you a very simple technique for creating one layer greeting cards.

42305826_10212566272737221_2870101162428727296_o

I use the Succulents stamp set I designed for Rubber Stamp Tapestry combined with other stamps to create a Thinking of You card to send to a friend. You can try this with any stamps you have that have large areas you can color. I recommend working on watercolor paper if you have it because the paint will flow and blend nicer and the tape will not rip it.

Supplies:

Directions:
1. Fold and tape down your watercolor card. Make an even 1/2″ border with the tape around the card and press the tape so paint can leak under it.

2. Stamp the planter in black and the succulents in green. Use the masking technique when stamping the plants.

3. Color the image with watercolors and let dry.

4. Paint the background with shades of pink, purple and yellow. You can flick on paint splatters if you wish. Let dry.

5. Remove the tape and stamp the sentiment.

6. Use paint to ink up some peg stamps and decorate the envelope if desired.

You can use any watercolor you have for this or scribble your water based markers on a white plate and pick the color up with a wet brush to paint with instead. I hope you enjoyed this easy project and til next time happy crafting!

  2. Try any small leaves and flowers you have. You can also use little bird brads or stickers to embellish the trees!
  3. If you don’t have blending brushes use a sponge and sponge it on instead.
  4. Save your templates for future topiary cards!
  5. Most importantly, have fun!

Squeeze the Day!

Hi friends! Today is my 17 year wedding anniversary! Isn’t it funny how time flies? My hubby and I have the entire day to spend together and I am so thankful. Some days are ideal  and on other days we have to make the most of the time we have and try to Squeeze the best out of the day we are given.

I really liked this sentiment: “When life gives you lemons…Squeeze the day” because it is a good motto I think. It’s also nice if you like to decorate the inside and outside of a card.
