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!

The coolest thing about this card (to me) was stamping that sentiment inside the house at the last-minute and also finding a use for that scrap of Mylar I came across looking for papers for an unrelated project. Think of all the treasures that could be hiding in the nooks and crannies of your crafty storage. When I was little my mom use to tell us to clean our closet if we wanted a new toy because we would find something we forgot about (and we always did!) and it would be just like a new present! The best thing about these new old treasures is that they are like new goodies that are already bought and paid for so we can enjoy them without guilt. Have fun shopping your stash and til next time happy crafting!

Glitter and Stencils? Yes Please!

Hi friends! This card design packs a punch and it will get you using some stencils you may have in your stash! Remember back in the day when the only way we could emboss paper was with a brass stencil, stylus and a light box? Well, I am betting some of you still have those stencils sitting around.

This technique is fun and pretty easy but I will warn you that we are using glitter so don’t blame me if you are a little more sparkly that usual afterward LOL! Watch the video to see how it’s done!

Supplies:

Glitter directions:

  1. Coat back of metal stencil with bar soap or coconut oil. Apply adhesive sheet to cardstock and remove backing and stick stencil to adhesive.
  2. Sprinkle on color one, place backing sheet over glitter with stencil still in place and press it down. Dump excess back in glitter jar.
  3. Remove stencil and add the contrasting color. Pour off excess and press with backing paper again.
  4. Burnish firmly with backing paper to lock the glitter in place, trim the panel and add it to your card.

I hope you give this technique a try on your next card! Happy crafting!

Topiary tips!

  1. Use any bold shape for your topiary. You can use a punch, die cut or trace a cookie cutter to make your stamping template.
  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!

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Waterolor Crayon Windowbox Cards

Howdy friends! When you embark on this crazy hobby we call stamping there is no end to the accessories we can accumulate for our craft. I was a painter long before I ever picked up a stamp so when I first begun stamping I would use paint to stamp with because the thought for spending lots on money on ink pads seemed crazy (and this was back in 2002 where there weren’t as many options as we have today!) If you are new to the hobby you might be wondering how you can stamp in color without breaking the bank, well there are many options!

20180516_141910.jpg

I am using watercolor crayons but you can also use water-based markers or even watercolor paint applied with a flat brush (just make sure it’s not to wet.) If you have water-soluble oil pastels, scribble sticks or gelatos they can work too. Try what you have, if the media rewets with water it won’t hurt your stamps. You can even use acrylic paint but care must be taken to ensure you clean your stamps well and don’t let the paint dry in the crevices of the stamp. The only other thing I want to say about this technique is not to expect perfection, you will end up with a loose painterly project and that is part of the beauty of it. Have fun and see where the stamps and crayons take you!

Embossed layer 3 3/4″x5″
Card size: 4.1/4″x 5 1/2″

Project tips!

  1. Don’t let the stamp get too wet of you will have blobs. You want to have a crisp impression and you can drag around color with a wet brush if desired.
  2. Don’t worry if you get some blobs because it will add to the painterly effect!
  3. If you don’t have watercolor paper don’t worry, it will still look nice on cardstock but your dragging and blending of the paint may be limited.
  4. Feel free to substitute! Try your art supplies and see what you come up with!

I hope you try this technique on your stamps, it’s a lot of fun! Happy crafting!
