Stamp of the Month Fun

Stamp of the Month Fun!

Using both the Stamp of the Month S1810 Thanks and Giving and the paper collection, Grateful Heart, this card came together well.

I love the little leaves peaking out through the circles.  Use 3D foam tape to pop up the panel with the circles so you can get some great depth under the branches.

Use a spray pen with some sapphire reinker and water/alcohol mixed together to get the spray pattern.  It’s a wonderful thing to be able to create your own colors of spray to match whatever project you are working on.  Creating fun looks is really easy to do.  A word of caution.  Make sure to have the floor/area protected so clean up is easy!

The set is $18.95 or $5.00 with a qualifying purchase of $50.00.  When you do this, you’ll get the Kit of the Month for free!  Comes to you all pre-cut and ready to stamp along with Happy Mail and your choice of directions to several workshop.  You can have a lot of fun with this kit.

I Craft So Hard

I Craft So Hard

 

“I craft so hard I sweat GLITTER” is one of my favorite sentiment saying in the August Stamp of the Month, S1808 For The Love of Crafting.  This card is fun to make with the left over pieces of glitter paper and shimmer tape you have around.    Gold Glitter Gems and some Prisma Glitter adds some more bling to the card.  =)

There is a free Kit of the Month for everyone who gets this stamp set for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase.  The “matching” card using the same sentiment, from the kit is this:

This card uses one of the embossing folders to create a base of the card.  Documented paper for the other pieces along with some gold glitter paper!  Best of all – all of this is cut for you when you get the kit.  You’ll need the stamp set, the embossing folder, pen/markers, along with the stapler.  So nice to just get a kit to put together when you get it.  Envelopes are included.

Did I mention if you join our team, WWStampettes, in August, I’ll send you this kit as well for free because it’s so awesome!  Come and join our fun!!

Amazing August Things To Remember!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet and letting me take a little .  I craft because I love it!  This stamp set is close to My heart because it has so many fun sentiments that celebrate this love.  I hope you don’t miss out.

Do What You Love

Do What You Love

“Do what you love” is so very important, don’t you agree.  For the past 18 years, I’ve been a part of Close To My Heart (CTMH) because I love crafting and I want some of the best products for this.   We were relocating to Guam and I was honestly, in a panic about where I’d get my crafting supplies from!  I wanted to be sure I was able to get paper, stamps, and scrapbooks.   Getting them at a discount was just an added bonus for me.

From a simple decision to join CTMH (formally DOTS when I joined), I gained so much more than a discount.  I gained a community of amazingly talented artists to inspire me.  Friends, both as customers and consultants, who have walked 18 years of life with me.    We’ve laughed, cried, and created memories to last a lifetime.  You just can’t go wrong with this.   Look at this amazing kit you receive plus you’ll get a $50.00 CTMH Cash shopping spree to pick the supplies you want in your kit and a free Magical Paper Pack.  It’s really a “Consultant Kit Your Way”!   Did I mention that you get to pick your new supplies from the upcoming Holiday Expressions because consultants get a “preview” period where we can order ahead of everyone else!   The value is over $200.00 for an investment of $75.00 (over 60% discount).

 

Join our team, WWStampettes, this month and get the “Kit of the Month” for free!  You’ll only need to have the Stamp of the Month to create this cards.  The cards are cut and ready for you to stamp.  Embellishments are included!  =)  

 

Here’s a sample of one of the cards, a different take on the same sentiment:

I Sweat Glitter!

I Sweat Glitter!

Have you seen the August Stamp Of the Month, S1808 For The Love of Crafting, with it’s great saying “I craft so much I sweat glitter!”?  I’ve had so much fun with this stamp set!

I made these pens for my team at Convention this year:

Take a pen and use the charms that are on clearance to decorate it.  Slide into a cello bag and put a topper on it.  Central Park Paper was used because it’s so cheerful!  Did I mention if you purchase this stamp set for $5.00, you’ll get this free kit of the month?

I have several more cards to share before the end of the month because I’ve had so much fun with it.

Scrappy First Home

Scrappy First Home

This card is Created from Central Park scraps, thus the name Scrappy first home. The background for the card is knotted on black I’m sorry Pacifica paper. The sentiment is stamps from the July stamp of the month s1807 Highlight Reel.

My friend Jon picked out the house and tree and I fussy cut them from a background and texture paper that had a variety of different houses on it.  I use 3D foam tape both the regular and thin to create dimension so that the tree look like it was behind the house a little bit.

With some leftover Gold Shimmer trim, Central Park sequins,  gold glitter gems, and gray twine, I was able to embellish the card.  The pile of left over embellishments is just as big as the scrap box!  LOL.  Twine is held down with the mini-stapler!  This is such a quick and efficient way to adhere the twine to the card.

July things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  This scrappy First Home card helped to use some of my scraps up.  =)

First Home

First Home

Here’s a card to help someone celebrate their first home.  Such a big step in life and accomplishment!  S1807 Highlight Reel is a great set for celebrating these first time accomplishments.  

Use Fresh Air Paper on this card with some of the neutral colored cardstock, Toffee (front and back) along with Glacier.  Color in the windows and door of the house with the Shin Touch Markers.

Stamp the heart in cranberry which really makes it pop on this card.   The white ribbon and some shimmer brushes to add the finishing touches.

Remember my Kit of the Month, which features the current Stamp of the Month and is FREE when you order the SOM for $5.00 (with a qualifying purchase of $50.00).
