For my second project I used my all time favorite Altenew stamp set called Everything About You and the Our Family Scrapbook Kit.  I love all of the sentiment included in this stamp set.  You will see it on future projects for sure.

I love this project because I love the look of the embroidery hoop paired with papercraft products. Plus, my niece looks so happy!!!

Everything About You

For my third project I used Altenew New Me stamp set to talk about all of the things I love about myself.  This was a fun project to do because I reminded myself about myself!!

Concord & 9th Polka Dot Turnabout

Hello everyone!!! I’m here today showcasing Concord & 9th Polka Dot Turnabout stamp set!!  Concord & 9th’s Turnabout stamps are a super big hit.  They create such fun pattens and seamless creations.  All you need is 2-4 different color inks and watch the magic happen.

Let’s take a look:

Beautiful right!! I used Concord & 9th Polka Dot Turnabout, Sophisticated Script and Sophisticated Script Uppercase stamp set.

Here’s how to create this card:

Decide on what ink colors you want to use.  I used Altenew’s Cool Summer Night oval ink pads to stamp all of the dots.

Line the stamp up with the image on the back of the packaging to make off the center of the stamp.

To get the best impressions and the correct spacing, you must use a Misti to stamp the images.

After every stamp, turn your card 90 degrees until you’ve stamped four times.

Once the background is finish, stamp the sentiment using black ink.

Finished!!

What do you think?

So what do you think?  Do you have any of the Turnabout stamp sets?  If not, start out with the polka dot set first.  Its easy.  If you have the other turnabout stamps, which ones?  I would love to hear which one you have.

{Clean and Simple} – Gray

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I used a new stamp set from Concord & 9th Love You So stamp set paired with Prima Color Philosophy Ink in Warm Gray to create this 4 x 4 card for valentines day.  I used We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to round all four corners.

Super simple and easy.
