New Stamp Simply Release--Typewritten Sentiments Series!

SO EXCITED to be a part of Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's new clear stamp release-- TYPEWRITTEN Sentiment Series! Three sets of fabulous typewritten font sentiments so needed throughout the year. Perfect for adding that thoughtful message to your designs! You can purchase TYPEWRITTEN as a bundled trio, or individually.

Take a look at these great sentiments:

I enjoyed mixing the new TYPEWRITTEN sets with some of my favorite Stamp Simply floral sets. The floral image panels are all done in the same manner: I heat embossed the blooms with Versamark Watermark ink and Ranger Super Fine White Embossing Powder (similar) on Ranger Watercolor Paper, then loosely watercolored them. The image panels are then mounted on bases of Graphic 45 Ephemera Queen or Fairie Wings Collections decorator paper. A quick border was machine sewn around the dp base. Scor-Tape was used throughout.

All linked product is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Be certain to check out the Stamp Simply blog this week to see more inspiration featuring the new TYPEWRITTEN SERIES!

Thanks for stopping by; I will be back on Friday with a Christmas card using the TYPEWRITTEN SERIES!

Pumpkins and Spice

Hello! Here today with a fairly quick and easy card with just a bit of distress ink watercoloring, featuring Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's "Welcome Fall" stamp and die sets, as well as Studio Light Wonderful Autumn decorator paper.

The Studio Light decorator paper does most of the work for you; such a gorgeous pad, filled with great prints and images. I simply stamped the pumpkin from Stamp Simply's Welcome Fall clear stamp set onto Ranger Watercolor paper, watercolored it with a couple of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks, and die cut it with Stamp Simply's Welcome Fall Pumpkin steel die. The pumpkin is popped up with a bit of dimensional tape.

A sentiment from the Welcome Fall stamp set is stamped directly onto the decorator paper panel with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, and you are ready to go! Flat to mail! Scor-Tape was used throughout.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

October--Pastor Appreciation Month

It's October! Crisp temperatures with full blown colorful foliage makes for one of my favorite times of the year! 

October also means Pastor Appreciation Month...time to thank our pastors and ministry workers for all they do! Stamp Simply Ribbon Store has a couple of great sets to accomplish this; today I'm using Stamp Simply's "Pastor Appreciation Greetings" clear stamp set.

I began with a base made with two layers of cardstock covered in Craft Constortium's "Wood Textures" decorator paper. Love this paper pad; it has wonderful wood tones, distressed and beautiful.

Now for colorful foliage: I stamped Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's "Floral Cluster Fall Flowers" image with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, then colored with with Copic Sketch Markers. The floral cluster was then die cut with the Stamp Simply's "Floral Cluster" steel die.

The Bible Verse sentiment from the Pastor Appreciation Greetings stamp set was stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, then die cut with Spellbinder Nestabilities Oval dies.

The inside Bible verse is also from the Pastor Appreciation Greetings stamp set, stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink.

Scor-Tape and Thermoweb 3D Foam was used throughout the design.

Enjoy October! Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Tags


It's Autumn Tag Inspiration at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store this week! I have three quick and simple tags using Stamp Simply stamps and dies and Tim Holtz Layering Stencils.

I began by stamping the coneflower from Stamp Simply's "Caring Coneflower" clear stamp set as well as the leaves from Stamp Simply's "Harvest" set.

After coloring the images with Copic Sketch Markers, I die cut them with the "Coneflower" and "Harvest" steel dies.

The tags are cut with Tim Holtz Tag dies, then stenciled with Tim Holtz Layering Stencils. The smaller dark brown stenciled tag uses "Rosette"; the larger double coneflower tag is stenciled with "Crossed," and the leaf tag is stenciled with "Schoolhouse" stencils.

A sentiment from the "Harvest" stamp set is inked up with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and die cut with a Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's Fishtail Banner Sentiment die.

May Art's Twill Ribbon ties it all together, and a bit of spatter and distress adds a cozy touch. Scor-Tape is used throughout.

Joy to the World

Hello, and welcome! I'm here today with a Christmas card featuring Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's "Farmhouse Christmas" 

The lovely decorator paper used here is Kaisercraft's "Wonderland." What a pretty pad of prints, all in a non traditional Christmas colorway. Great for something a little different!

The base of the 5 x 5" card is covered with layers of the decorator paper. An oval cut and centered is made with Spellbinder Oval Nestabilities.

The "Farmhouse Christmas" bulb is stamped directly on the top oval with Tim Holtz Distress ink (Evergreen Bough and Iced Spruce both match the paper pad)  and Versamark Watermark ink, then heat embossed using Ranger Fine Embossing Powder in clear. It is accented with May Art's 1.5" Tulle bow and a gem (similar HERE).

The sentiment from the Farmhouse Christmas set is stamped with the distress ink and watermark ink, heat embossed, and die cut with a Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Fishtail Banner Sentiment die. 

Scor-Tape is used throughout.

You can find the entire Stamp Simply Farmhouse Series HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful Fall weekend!

Christmas Peace and Joy Stamp Set Release!

So excited to show you Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's new release of 
"Christmas Joy" and "Christmas Peace" stamps. Lovely new clear stamp sets with easy to color images and beautifully mixed font sentiments.

 I have two easy to make and mail cards to show the two separate sets which can be purchased individually or as a bundle. First up "Christmas Joy":

I used Tim Holtz Distress ink to watercolor wash the background, color the image, and add a bit of spatter.

An additional layer of watercolor paper was edged with the same Ranger embossing powder, to make a matching "frame." So fun!

The "Christmas Peace" candle and sentiment was stamped onto cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then Copic colored. I die cut the panel with a Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangle die. 

The entire panel was then covered with glitter using Versamark Watermark ink pad, Heat and Stick Powder (similar-- Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder), and Stampendous Ultra Fine Translucent Glitter. It looks so frosty and elegant in real life.

The glittered panel was layered over a dark red base, and May Art's 1/4" Silk ribbon bow added. Scor-Tape was used in both cards.

All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simpy Ribbon Store.

I hope that you have enjoyed these ideas from the new Stamp Simply release. Be certain to check out more ideas from the Stamp Simply Team at the Stamp Simply blog!

906 Day!!!

Hello! It's 906 Day here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. "906 Day?" you may ask. The entire Yoop's area code has been 906 for as long as I remember, thus September 6-- 906 Day.

I used Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's "Upper Peninsula" steel die to cut out layers of cardstock topped with Authentique's "Gracious" decorator paper to emphasize the beautiful colors and fall temperatures that are beginning here. A bit of Tim Holtz Distress Pumice Stone ink is used for a bit of distress on the edges.

I stamped the "906" from Stamp Simply's "Upper Peninsula Yooper" clear stamp set onto cardstock with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, then die cut it with a Spellbinder Oval Nestabilities die.

It is layered over a background of Authentique "Gracious" paper -- same pad as the leafy print. Great for Autumn! Scor-Tape was used throughout.

You can buy the stamp and dies individually, or as a combo. Stamp Simply also has the Lower Peninsula of Michigan stamps and dies available as well! 

All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

I hope that you enjoy 906 Day if you are fortunate to be in one of the prettiest places that I know! Have a great Sunday!
