The theme for the month of March is Going Green at Scrapbook Cove in Stonington, CT. I designed a small mixed media board using old book pages, scraps to cover the bird and paper bag shreds for the nest. I will be teaching this class in March. Should be fun! Happy crafting!
Today was a perfect day to play with paper and ink. I have had this Hero Arts stamp Happy Everything for a long time and never found a project or technique to use with it. I white embossed the stamped image, heat set it and then inked the background in blues and greens. I cut out the word banner and attached it over the stamped image. I liked the way it came out and it s happy everything type of card. Hope to enter it in the current Hero Arts contest. Happy Stamping!
I got a wonderful craft box from my daughter for Christmas and it was a scarf printing/stamping kit from Brit+Co. The kit included a jersey knit scarf, fabric paint, a small foam brush, a sheet of sticky foam to create your own stamp and a wooden block for the sticky foam paper. I had plenty of my own solid image large stamps and some mini bottles of fabric paint. I created my own pattern and colors and stamped away. I learned in the process that the painted stamp does only needs a minimal amount of paint to create a nice stamped image. What a great gift and stamping project. Attached is my finished stamped scarf. I love the way it looks.
Every year I create a new calendar to share with friends and use at home. Every printed page is embellished with a stamped image for every month. This year I decided to try something different and used some images from My Favorite Things stamps. After creating an original I added glitter glue and pearlized accents. Check out my newest creations.
Here is one of my stamped cards for several different occasions.
I also enjoy creating projects such a gift bags and tags. Hope you find inspiration as I have from ideas from crafting friends.
