Hello my friends! The Stamp of Approval Collection is live in the shop right now! We filled lots of orders last week and it's been so fun to see what stampers are choosing in their boxes. Can you believe it's almost exactly an even split between those choosing Coffee and those that chose Tea? More people are choosing both Coffee AND Tea, but it's fun that you all get to choose!
I've been busy making celebration cards this weekend – super appropriate because the theme of the box is Celebrate Friends! I made a few cards on Facebook Live, if you want to check those out Click here and Click here. The second one was a Saturday night stamping “event”…my friend Vicki was here, so that was a lot of fun. In that Live, I talked about the inks and some history behind developing them.
I got stamping again today and hopped on YouTube Live…here it is!
I made a few cards before I went live…here they are.
These were a two-in-one. I stamped a background of lowers and leaves from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set, the die cut “Hooray”.
I trimmed the background for the first card a bit and saved a piece of the trim for the next project.
I used the Direct to paper technique to create matching cardstock with my Aquatini Ink Pad. I popped that up with dimensional adhesive and added the little bits that got left in the die to create the “Hooray”.
I added a black “Hooray” to the stamped Hooray, added it to a white cardstock base and stamped “For you” and a few flowers.
The stamped piece that I saved from the first card, I added to the bottom along with a strip of Lime Rickey and Be Mine Cardstock that I colored with the Direct to paper method.
For this card, I stamped the images much closer together, then stamped the greeting on Midnight Cardstock with Versamark ink, covered it with White Embossing Powder and heat it.
I added a small piece of the Bordering Sweet Die and tied twine around it.
For the final card, I layered the die cuts for a fun look, stamped some flowers and added the greeting.
