Second Post for today
If your looking for the YNS Color and Sketch post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of July.

This month’s theme is Take a Technique: Stenciling or Masking!!  That means you can use a stencil or mask somewhere on your creation with a stamped image or sentiment anywhere on your creation.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Hey You (TIMI)

Stenciling is so pretty to me.  I just love how easy it is to create a super nice and simple background that looks so elegant!!

Here is how I create this card:

  1. I place Create a Smile Boxes Stencil on top of an A2 size card and held it down with post it tape.
  2. Then I used Distress Ink Wild Honey and Scattered Straw and applied ink using an ink blending tool.
  3. I started in the bottom right hand corner with wild honey and move my way up the card getting lighter with scattered straw.
  4. Then I stamped the sentiments from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set with Clearsnap Colorbox Archival Wicked Dye Ink.

Super simple and easy!!!

Sooooo, what do you think? Please let me know below.

Prizes:

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for August is: GiogioCraft!

Prize: Bundle of 4 Stencils

Our second winner is our Design Winner. This winner is chosen by our DT, who all vote for their favorite design from all of the entries. This winner will have their winning project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, they will have a GDT slot for an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post!

Now if that isn’t a reason to play along I’m not sure what is!!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

I think these little boxes are the cutes thing.  They are even easier to create.

Here’s how:

  1. Use Stampin’ UP! Baker’s Box Thinlits Die to cut out two pieces out of Neenah Desert Storm card stock.
  2. Assembly the box according to the score lines.
  3. For box 1: Cut out 2×2 square pieces of pattern paper and adhere it to the four panels of the box.
  4. For box 2: Cut 13inches of ribbon and wrap it around the box, adhering it at the bottom of the box.
  5. For both boxes: Stamp the sentiment from Learning is Fun and the sentiment from Spectacular Teacher onto black card stock.  Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat set.
  6. Die cut each tag out and adhere them to the box using foam tape.
  7. Close Box 1 by string ribbon through the holes.

Nice and easy.  What do you think? What are you creating for the teachers in your life?  Please let me know below.
