Angel Ornament or Gift Tag

 Here today with a creation that could either be an ornament or gift tag using Stamp Simply's "Angels Among Us" stamp and die sets.

A simple make using strips of cardstock to make the "petals," dipped in glue with glitter along the edges.

The "Angels Among Us" angel image was stamped with Memento Gray Flannel ink, then colored with Copic Sketch markers. It was then die cut with the "Angels Among Us" die.   

The frame is die cut squares using Stamp Simply "Praying Hands" die set. Glitter was applied both to the angel image as well as the square "frame." A bit of metallic gold string acts as a hanger.

Stamp Simply Fall/Winter 2023 Release


Hello! Stamp Simply has just released new stamp and die sets...all so lovely. Above is a pic of the new sets, available as bundles or individually. Today I am featuring a stamp and die set that is part of the "My Church Series." I love the new church image along with all of the precious Bible verses that are part of the new release!

Here's my icy winter scene! As I mentioned, I'm loving the church in the "My Church" stamp set; the My Church Series "Country Church" die set has different scene building capabilities...not only the church die, but trees, hill, and clouds. Fabulous fun to create with!

I began by watercoloring a winter sky on a piece of watercolor cardstock. After the watercolor dried, I stamped the Bible verse  from the stamp set onto the sky backdrop using Versafine Clair Nocturn ink. 

I also watercolored some scraps in green to die cut the trees. I die cut a couple of hills from watercolor paper and tinted them softly with the watercolors. 

I stamped the church image onto watercolor paper with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, then watercolored with similar soft colors as the background. After the watercolor dried, I die cut it with the church from the die set. A bit of glitter, white Stickles, and white gel pen add the final icy touches.

You can purchase the "My Church Series" in a bundle, or individually.

God Will Take Care of You Bookmark

Hello! I have a quick bookmark/tag for you today using Stamp Simply's "God Will Take Care of You" stamp and die sets.

The bottom tag layer was die cut with Tim Holtz "Tag Collection" die with a layer of brown cardstock panel that was embossed with Tim Holtz/Sizzix' 3D Texturefade "Tree Ring" embossing folder. It was then inked over with Versafine Claire Pinecone ink for definition. 

The cardinal and branches from the "God Will Take Care of You" set were stamped on cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Copic Sketch markers. They were then die cut with the matching "God Will Take Care of You" dies.

The sentiment is also from the stamp set, die cut with a Spellbinder Oval die. A bit of rustic ribbon adds the final touch.

Autumn Blessings Wreath

Hi there! The team at Stamp Simply is showcasing wreaths this week--here is my Autumn inspired addition!

The leafy die cuts are Tim Holtz Sizzix "Fall Foliage," cut from watercolor paper. I watercolored some of the leaves with watercolors, and used Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Spray Stain on others. 

For the watercoloring, I die cut the clear watercolor paper first, then watercolor painted the leaves; the distress spray stained leaves were die cut from watercolor panels that had already been spritzed with the sprays. Of course it is not necessary to do both types of coloring; I just enjoy trying to find different ways to get some distressed looking color.

 The metallic copper "wreath" is Luxury Pearlescent Metallic Copper paper, #80 text weight. It's thinner than regular cardstock, but in cases of layering, it's perfect.  The lovely "Blessings" sentiment is Stamp Simply's "Blessings Word Die" die cut from another panel of watercolored paper. The finished card measures 5.5" X 5.5."

All linked product comes from Stamp Simply. Be certain to check out the rest of the team's wreath and swag ideas!

Yooper Notecards!

 Hello! Just a quick post to show off some Yooper notecards that I recently gifted for a family reunion giveaway. "Yooper cards?" you may ask?  The copper image is the shape of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, lovingly known as the U.P. where "Yoopers" live. The copper U.P. is also significant as our region has had numerous copper mines in the past, known as the "Copper Country." 

The U.P. die is Stamp Simply's "Upper Peninsula" die, cut through layers of Luxury Pearlescent Metallic #105 Copper cardstock. I layered a couple of the die cuts to give it extra height. Stamp Simply also has a fantastic stamp set that coordinates with the Upper Peninsula die. See it HERE.

The U.P. is adhered to layers of Craft Consortium's "Patina" decorator paper and Luxury Pearlescent Metallic #80 Copper cardstock. The #80 paper is perfect for layers as it is a bit thinner and does not add weight to the design.

Have a great weekend!
