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!

Stamping Succulents! (BTW I designed these stamps!)

Hi friends! I am so pleased and humbled by the response to my first line of rubber stamps with Rubber Stamp Tapestry. It is a wonderful feeling to know my artwork will inspire others to make their own art. Today I am going to share one of my new sets: Succulents.

SAM_5459.JPG

I designed these stamps to be used together to make scenes and arrangements but I also want them to be big enough to be used on their own if you just want to do a quick & simple card. I also wanted you to be able to use them with other stamps you already have because in order for my stamps to earn a place on your craft table they need to make your other stamps and supplies more useful.

SAM_5461.JPG

In today’s tutorial I am going to show you 3 different ways to create masked scenes with these stamps so you can use them on their own or with other plant pot stamps you have. I will also show you how to layer colored pencils to create rich images with depth and contrast.

Supplies from Rubber Stamp Tapestry:

Other Supplies:

Directions for lattice fold (you can do this on any size card, you just need and even number of flaps to fold over)

1. Score and fold card in half.

2. Mark a guide line 1″ parallel to the fold on the card.

3. Make marks every 1/4″ along the fold with a pencil.

4. Use a 45 triangle to draw a line from the mark on the fold to the guide line you drew.

5. Cut along the slits to the line you drew. Cut away the triangle at the top and bottom.

6. Open the card and fold the next to the bottom flap down. Repeat with ever other flap. As long as you have an even number of flaps it should work out but if you cut an odd number you can trim off the top:)

7. Fold the card back and decorate as desired!

The lattice step will take less than 10 minutes. The total card will take around 30 minutes to stamp, color and assemble. Try the lattice fold technique on any card you want to add a decorative touch to. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
