Love Stamp, but only one?????

 
WARNING!!!!  CHEEKY POST AHEAD
{I just don't know what's gotten into me today?}
 
How many times have you looked at a stamp set and really liked one or 2 stamps.  OMG...that's me every time.  My GF and I just had this chat about this stamp, Stampers Anonymous stamp set Urban Chic.  She was trying to decide if she wanted it.  I said get it and in the end she didn't and now blames me!  It did get me thinking...what a great class this might be...challenge accepted.  Today I'm teaching a class making this card using a stamp set with a great stamp or 2...but what to do with the rest of the OK stamps?
 
JUST STAMP THE SHIT OUT OF THE DAM THING
{I did warn you}
 
...and make your own Designer Paper with your not so favorite stamps.  You know what...these frilly, girlie stamps are actually growing on me now that I've layered them. 
 
But only just a little. 


 
I layered these not so attractive CHICK stamps using a few TH inks, Spun Sugar, Warn Lipstick and Walnut Stain. 
 
This Walnut Stain Ink is like the "Bread to my Butter", "Peanut Butter to my Jelly"...that shit goes on everything!!! Kinda like the Franks Red Hot Sauce!
 
 
I cut the these tiny strips too small on purpose.  I wanted the stamp to spill over.  So be sure to distress the edges first and ink them, glue them into place and then STAMP!  I know...all backwards but you can do it.  If you need a moment to wrap your crafty brain around this method you can take it...
 
{Taking a Moment....}
{Shhhhh....}

 
Grab a few inks light, darker and then a contrast ink to create a layered look.

 
No embellishments, no ribbon, no glitter!  I know...I'm off my rocker today.  But really, next time you're looking at that stamp set with the KICK ASS stamp and boring other stamps.  Pause...and maybe look at it differently!
 
NOW GO STAMP SOME PAPER! 
{Ya, I caps yelled at you.}

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…
