Your Next Stamp: Celebrating 10 Years!

Hello everyone!! I’m incredibly excited to be here today. Your Next Stamp is celebrating 10 years. As a former design team member, I feel honored to celebrate with them.

I’ve always loved their stamp sets, dies, and gumdrops (those are my favorite). Their new September release is nothing short of amazing. You will not be disappointed. The new release products will be available on the YNS Store on September 12, 2019.

Let’s take a look at what I created:

Gift pouches are always fun to make and also fun to receive. It was fun creating these from start to end.

You can fill these with money, gift cards, small necklaces, rings, bracelets, etc. Perfect with no gift wrapping needed.

Here’s how to create these gift pouches:

Gather your supplies. You will need:

Fabulous Feathers Stamp Set
Dancing Dragonflies Stamp Set
Linen-Cotton Canvas Fabric
Cork Fabric
Interfacing
Pearl Snaps
Snaps Pliers
VersaCraft Black Ink
BERNINA sewing machine

Here’s how to create it:

Preparing fabric:

Cut two pieces of linen-cotton canvas fabric to 13.5 x 4, rounding the ends.

Cut one piece of cork to 3 x 4, round the corners.

Cut one piece of interfacing to 11 x 4.

Preparing for sewing:

Fold the straight edge of the cork fabric 1/4 to hide the raw edges.

Clip the cork to the top of one piece of the linen-cotton canvas fabric.

Sewing:

Edgestitch the fold down 1/8 in.

On the back of this exterior piece, line the fusible fleece to the stitched line and iron in place.

Align the exterior and interior pieces, right side together.

Stitch around the entire pouch using a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving a 3″ gap for turning.

Turn the piece inside out, push out the corners, and press.

Take the straight edge of the pouch and fold it up to the original stitch line and press.

Edgestitch all the way around. Backstitch at the top of the pouch on both sides.

Add the pearl snap using the pliers.

Stamping on the pouch:

Use VersaCraft Ink to stamp onto fabric.

Decide on the place of the design and stamp.

Super simple and easy.

Let’s take a closer look:

 

Let’s not forget the back of each pouch:

Decorting the back is important too. You can carry the design around to the back or completely change things up. Let your imagination sore!

So what do you think? Stamping doesn’t always have to be on cardstock. Stamping on fabric is just as easy.

Wait, the fun doesn’t stop here!

We have PRIZES for you!

Your Next Stamp will select the winning comments from the YNS blog and IG. One random comment from each preview day will win one of the products previewed on that day! All comments must be left by September 15, 2019, and the winner will be announced on September 17, 2019. 

So what do you think? Would you give stamping on fabric a try? I would love to hear all about it.

Thank you so much,

Altenew September 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new stencils. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Kelly Janes, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my traveler’s notebook cover page:

travelers notebook cover

Take a look at the inside pages:

Traveler's notebook pages

I have to admit when I saw the new It’s for You Stamp Set, I knew I had to have it based on a trip I took last year with my daughter to Cuba.

We visited a street art museum, and one of the things that grabbed my daughter’s attention was the rotary phone. She was curious about it and wanted to know how it worked. I laughed and decided to tape her trying to use it.

Here’s how I create this page:

I wanted to keep my design clean and simple.

I used the Tall Alpha Die to decorate the cover of the notebook.

So I stamped the telephone and the sentiment on the right bottom corner of the page using the Mini MISTI and permanent black ink.

Round the edges of the photo.

Mount the photo on top of the cardstock and adhere it to the cover of the traveler’s notebook.

Altenew August 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s July 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new stencils. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Caly Person, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Take a look at my wooden gift bags:

Altenew Dot Art gift bag

Aren’t these wooden bags the cutest thing you’ve seen? When I saw them at my local craft store, I knew I want to create something with them. My sister came over and asked me to make two birthday gift bags for her coworkers. She bought them some jewelry and didn’t have a bag for them. I immediately pulled these wooden bags out of my stash.

Wonder Wycinanki stamp set

Stamping on them was a breeze, and the new Dot Art, and Wonderful Wycinanki worked perfectly. The dot-art design is light, airy, and very simple.

I also stamped the bottom of the wooden gift bag.

Wonderful Wycinanki

My sister was delighted with her packaging. I can’t wait to hear what her coworkers thought.

Tape down the stencil down where you want the design. I used the new Bubble Wrap Stencil.

Use a blender brush to add the colors you would like. I used Altenew’s Golden Sunset for this project.

Paint each coster in the colors of your choice. Let it dry.

Stamp each sentiment from the Graphic Brushstrokes Stamp Set in the center of each coster using black ink suitable for wood.

Prep and prepare resin following the instructions in the box.

Pour the resin in the center of each coaster almost to the edge of the circle.

Add some glitter to the leftover resin. Use a popsicle stick and spread the glitter where you want it to be.

Wait 15 minutes then use a heat gun to clear out the air bubbles that will form.

Let each coaster dry overnight.
