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!

Hello everyone!!  I’m excited to be here with you today to sharing an amazing multi-stamping project created for the Right At Home April Release Blog Hop!!  The design team are delight to full you with inspiration.

july-release

This month Nicole released four clear stamp sets and one background stamp! Super cute all around! For this released I used Right at Home Stamps Banner Alphabet and Banner Alphabet Add-On.  I also used Right At Home very first stamp set Happy Mail.

If you arrived here from Joan’s blog, you are on the right path!!  If you arrived on your own, you will want to start from the beginning, the Right At Home blog as to not miss out on any of the fun.

Take a look at my postcard:

While looking at the stamp sets, I wonder what could I do differently with these stamps.  It hit me that I could create postcards where the image and message is on the front of the card.

Check out how I created these easy to create postcards:

I started with the banner string.  I used the Mini Misti to do all of my stamping so that I could create more then one postcard at a time. I stamped the string with Versafine Black Ink.

Then I lined the banner stamps on the stamped line so that they are perfectly placed for easy stamping with the Mini Misti.

I left a space for the second “L”.

Using Clearsnap Colorbox Bluebells, I stamped the banner letters on each of the postcards.

I also placed the second sentiment on the bottom of the postcards so that I can stamp both sentiments at the same time.

Then I lined the second L up on the banner line.  Using the Mini Misti to get the L in the right place on all of the postcards.

Take al look at one of the finished cards with my handwriting on it.

Postcard Message (RAH)

This one is going out to Nicole the young lady behind these stamps!!

So this one layer postcard is super easy to create but even easier with a Mini Misti!!

So what do you think? Please let me know below.

Stamp and Stencil on Basswood

Second Post for today
If your looking for the Your Next Stamp Color Challenge, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m on Clearsnap’s Blog today sharing how to stamp and stencil on Basswood!!!

I totally had fun with this project!! I love how the Colorbox Pigment Ink dried super fast on the basswood allowing me freedom to move the stencil around without smearing the ink.

Here’s a sneak peek look at what I created:

For the full tutorial please head on over to the Clearsnap Blog to see what I’ve come up with.  This tray will hold my kids drink while we are outside enjoying the sunshine this summer.

While you’re there, let me know what you think and if you will give this a try!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
