Love is in the air……

Hello stampers! I am currently enjoying working on some projects using the previous releases. So if you’re like me, bring out your older stamps and give it some inking love! And oh! Don’t forget to grab your old paper collections too! But before I go on my project, let me share the following…

Do you guys remember the Love Stamp Set? That’s one of the first stamp set that we released in the shop. So if you’re new to the blog and haven’t seen that much of it, check this out~!

How cute are those?^_^

Now let’s talk about versatility. One of the most popular stamp set that we have is the Calendar Stamp Set. Not only it’s great whole year round, but you can make anything under the sun with this stamp set. Mix and match it with any stamps that you already own. Just perfect for any occasion.

And so I created not only 1 project for you guys, but I have 3 sweet projects for you to enjoy using both stamp sets!^_^

Check out this first one, you’re probably wondering… what else can I do with the sentiment stamps? Well, aside from using it by itself, try mixing it up with a sentiment die cut, I’m sure you have something in your stash that’s just waiting for you to get notice!^_^ Just like this one…. I have this die cut for years, and look how perfect it is. I stamped the word “Memories and Heart” from the Love stamp set. Those 3 hearts at the bottom is from the Calendar Stamp Set. Gotta love hearts!^_^

On to my next project! Looovvveee this card!^_^ I did the same technique on mixing it up with a sentiment die cut. Behind the die cut, I stamped all of the elements using the Calendar Stamp Set. And I just used a colored gel pen to fill in the hearts. And added some fun embellishments!

Here’s my last project for today, a kraft treat bag. Stamped using the Love stamp set, and the solid heart is from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.

I hope these projects gave you some inspiration on how you can play with our stamps.  Now start creating and grab those supplies that you haven’t seen for awhile.^_^

Happy Crafting!

Project Thursday {Pretty Packaging}

You know, when I first started crafting, I’ll admit I thought the whole ‘dressing up present/packaging’ thing was a little dumb. I mean, why waste your time dressing up a package that the recipient is just going to rip through?

Since then, I’ve changed my mind. For one reason, I like to dress up things – it’s just so darn fun! Secondly, the recipients usually save the packaging and really treasure it!

So here’s a present for my sister (who’s birthday is coming up soon), all dolled and prettied up using the Calender stamp set.

Her birth date…

I went with a lot of pink because it’s her favorite color, even though I know the style of the packaging (shabby) isn’t her favorite. Hey, I did say one reason I dress packaging up now I because I like it. 😉

Open the package up and you get a cute little owl whose wings spread open to reveal a little clock on his tummy!

Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping in!

Inspire Me Friday {Wedding Card}

Happy Friday, everyone! A friend of my family is getting married tomorrow and I thought the Calendar Stamp Set would be the perfect tool to personalize a wedding card. I started off with a dark blue card base and stamped a panel of cream colored cardstock with flowers from the Papertrey Ink (PTI) Pretty Peonies stamp set.

I then stamped and embossed a small die-cut panel with the “new couple” sentiment, which is from the PTI Beautiful Butterflies stamp set. Underneath this sentiment, I stamped the couple’s wedding date. Blue ribbon and a couple of buttons pull this card together!

I also decorated the inside of card with a few flowers and the date stamp again. I hope I’ve inspired you to look for ways to add personalization to your projects by means of adding a date. The Calendar Stamp Set is perfect for this and I’m so glad I have it to use for future weddings, birthdays and graduations!

Every day is a great day {Saturday Creations}

Any day is a great day to say “I love you.”

Don’t you think?

 

I tend to make a lot of these lovey-dovey cards, because I want the people I love to know that I love them… You know, in case I do things to make them doubt it during the day… hee.

For this card, I stamped a very subtle watermark border down the left of the card: the journaling lines first, and then the months of the year (from the Calendar set.)  Next, I printed the sentiment via the computer, and stamped the calendar month image over-top.  I added the white splotches, heart image, and stitching lines (on the strip of patterned paper) from my favorite Precious Remembrance set: positive thoughts.

I hope you like it!  Hope you take some time to create a little love note for someone special this weekend!

Inspire Me Friday {Halloween Card}

Happy Friday, everyone! Since autumn is quickly approaching, I decided to make a Halloween-themed card and put my beloved Calendar Stamp Set to use! I started off by adhering panels of polka-dotted scrap booking paper to my card base and covering the seams with orange rikrak.

I used a Spellbinders Labels 8 die to die cut the kraft panel and used the die from the Papertrey Ink Little Princess set to die-cut the “haunted” castle. I used the PTI Holiday Button Bits stamp set to stamp to stamp the bat wings, which are actually mistletoe leaves! I added a pair of hole-punch eyes and my bat was complete!

I stamped a mini tag with the October 31st date and strung it with some twine and a button as a finishing touch. I hope I’ve inspired you to embrace our upcoming autumn by creating some seasonal craft projects of your own!

Project Thursday {Subtle Stamping}

Hi there! Clare here to show you a sweet little tag that displays the impact of subtle stamping.

The calender stamp from the Calender stamp set was stamped and clear embossed on this tag, providing a nice focal point for the flower but at the same time not being too obtrusive.

A few sentiments stamped, embellishments added, and we’re good to go!

Thanks for stopping in with me today!

Create It Wednesday {my friend}

Wednesday, a perfect day to “make” a new friend.  Dipping into the paper scraps today to bring you a little Halloween fun with both the Friend and Calendar stamp set.

Used the notebook lines to create detail on the craft paper for the tree limb.  Love the months and numbers to add specific dates to projects.  And added the “fun times” sentiment fora little extra detail.

Saturday creations {just a note}

I’m back with my last Saturday Creations post of the month.  I hope you’ve enjoyed them!

Today, I’ve used the positive thoughts and calendar stamp sets to create a card with movement (I’m entering it into the moxie fab world movement challenge.)

I started out with a vintage cream card-base, and used a doily die to cut into some basic grey patterned paper.  I positioned the paper onto my die so that the hot-air-balloon would be at the top.  Then, I created a flurry of hearts floating down towards my sentiment.  Can you see on the folded edges that I stamped the backs of the hearts too?

The hearts were all stamped onto a sheet of vintage cream, and cut out with a border around the stamped image.  After all of my hearts were cut out, I flipped them over and stamped the back.  This allowed me to fold down some of the edges and still see pink ink.  That extra little detail is what makes the card for me…

Thanks for peeking!

Inspire Me Friday {Just a Note}

Hi, everyone! I’m back with another Inspire Me Friday Project using the calendar stamp set! Since we do have a little bit of summer left, I thought that a card featuring yellow would be perfect. I’m still getting plenty of sunshine here in California!

I began with a light blue A2 card base, which I cut and scored to size. I then stamped a white panel with a hexagon design from the Papertrey Ink Rosie Posie stamp set. I used my Cuttlebug to cut out a strip using the Papertrey Ink Filigree Border Die, and finished off the design with a strip of ribbon and a flower embellishment by American Crafts. I used a rainbow striped piece of scrapbook paper for the filigree die-cut, and I love how the colors mimic my hexagon pattern!

Last but not least, I added the adorable “just a note” sentiment from the calendar stamp set. I love the casual font that looks like handwriting. I think it fits this card just perfectly! Happy crafting, everyone!
