DIY Greeting Card with Gift Card Holder! Yay!:)

Hello stampers! I’m sure most of your Christmas cards are already out!:) But, it’s never too late to make one that you can just include in your gift bags for Christmas party or Christmas morning when it’s time to open presents!

This card is perfect in any occasion. Easy to make any day.:)

I kept it pretty simple when it comes to color combo, the classic black & white.

On a piece of paper, I used the Happy Mail Stamp Set for my design. I stamped a mixed of images from the set.

I added a layer of glassine bag on the base of my card where I can easily add any gift card or notes inside!

Over the glassine bag, I added some thread for a nice touch & texture. And then layer that piece of paper with stamped images on top.

Inside of the card, you still have spot to write your notes for friends & family. Fun right?:)

Thank you so much for joining me today. Stay warm & happy stamping!

DIY: Gift Wrapping Paper!

Happy Saturday stampers! I’m back with another fun gift wrapping idea!

Have you seen the last one that I made using paper bag? If you missed it, you may check it here.

Today’s project is all about making your own gift wrapping paper – using stamps!:)

Yay!:) If your gifts are bigger, find a roll of plain wrapping paper or a roll of plain art paper that you can easily stamp on. What I made here is a smaller box – like for jewelry. Which you can easily use a printing paper and stamp on it!

STAMPS: Happy Mail , Happy Art, Sketchy Christmas , Joy

Making your own patterned gift wrapping paper is very special and has a personal touch!

It’s a memorable one for sure!:)

Now, are you ready to create your own DIY gift wrapping paper?:)

DIY: Decorating Paper/Gift Bag for Holiday!

Hi stampers! Yay for December!:) I am just super excited when it gets closer & closer to Christmas. Not only that I always enjoy decorating our home, but also looking for the perfect gifts, & when it comes to gifts ~ gift wrapping is definitely part of it! I like fun & one of a kind!

My project for today is sharing how fun it is to decorate a plain white paper bag (we have it in the shop, available in white & kraft)  this size is perfect for some special things that your friend or family would really enjoy.

All the stamped images are from our Happy Mail & Happy Art stamp sets.

I created lines just using pen & ruler. The “Happy Holidays” sentiment is from our Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set.

Can you see the “handmade pricetag”?haha love it!:)

A mixture of red & green inks. And light pink for the background. Just lovin’ the Christmas vibe paper bag!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project idea using paper bag & stamps!:)

Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial: All the Trees by: Missy Whidden!

Hey, friends!  Missy here again, and I have a fun Christmas layout to share today featuring the Sketchy Christmas Stamp Set.  I was inspired by those cute trees and decided to make several embellishments out of them for my page.  I began with a few different green ink pads and some scrap paper.  I mixed and matched the inks to create different shades and tones of green.  I used all three trees in the stamp set.  I fussy cut them out and then arranged them around my photo, which is of my daughter at the Christmas tree lot last year.  I decided to bring in some gold and pink to the background, so I used some spray inks and plastic packaging to create the watercolor look.  I also added lots of splatters with the nozzles of the spray inks.

I love how these trees turned out!  I lightly spritzed them with gold spray ink before cutting them so it looks like gold snow.  So sparkly and pretty!  I layered them all together and popped a few of them up with adhesive foam. I also fussy cut some trees from some Crate Paper patterned paper to add some color to all that green.  To finish it off, I tucked in some gold metallic thread.  I used some alphas from an old Hip Kit Club kit to create some of the title.

I also used a circle die cut from the Oh Christmas Bits & Pieces pack.  I cut it in half and used half above the photo and half below.  I added in some green thread and did a bit more mixing and matching with my title.  I pulled in some older gold Thickers and some older washi tape.

Here’s the other half of that circle die cut…so cute!  I used an old 3×4 card from that Hip Kit as a layer here as well as more thread and some sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.

All the Trees3

Here’s another tree cluster to the right of the photo.  I love the depth and dimension created here.  I wanted it to look like a little forest of trees, and I think I accomplished that.

I hope this inspires you to pull out your Christmas stamps and create something festive!  Be sure to check out my process video here to see how this all came together.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial: Too Cool by: Missy Whidden!

Hello again, friends!  Missy here, and I have a fun abstract layout to share today.  Do you have any stamps that you don’t think you’ll ever have a use for?  For me, it’s the coffee cup stamp from the Coffee Love Stamp Set.  I don’t drink coffee, so I probably would never use it on a project.  I decided to challenge myself to use it anyway!  I went artsy and abstract with it, and I love how it turned out.  I used watercolor paints again instead of ink pads.  I began by randomly stamping the coffee cup stamp over and over using different colors.  I overlapped them and just made a colorful background.  I used another sheet and stamped the coffee cup using black archival ink.  I used the watercolors and ink sprays to add lots of shading and colors.  Once everything was dry, I used several punches and punched lots of circles.  You would never know what these stamps were in the beginning, so it really doesn’t matter what stamps you use for something like this!

Here you can see how awesome these random circles turned out.  Look at the difference in stamping with an ink pad versus watercolor.  It’s fun to get that wet and artsy look with the paint!  You really can’t mess this up, either.  It’s very easy to do.  I added more watercolors and ink sprays to the background and also machine stitched with black thread through some of the circles.

By punching out the circles, I had instant embellishments.  And each one is unique since I used several stamps.  In addition to the Coffee Love Stamp Set, I also used a few stamps from the Blossom Stamp Set.  I added some gold Color Shine, too, which is really fun.  I used some older American Crafts alpha stickers for my title and added in some sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps.

Here on the right side, I created a little circle cluster.  That “LOVE” piece is a die cut from the Love Coupon Bits & Pieces pack.  They’re perfect for using as embellishments or titles.  I added in some pink tangled thread and a few small Shimelle stickers.

I used a few more die cuts here from the Journey Bits & Pieces pack.  These are great for adding the date and adding fun sentiments to your project.  I love the typewriter font!

This was a lot of fun to create.  Those circles were really easy to make with all the stamps.  I hope this inspires you to get abstract and random with your stamps and create something unique and colorful!  Be sure to check out my process video to see how I created this page.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
