Pallette4mirror

The Stamps of life released a new fun stamp yesterday called Pallette4mirror.

This stamp allows you to stamp an image on the stamp and then stamp it on paper so that it is the mirror image of the original stamp.


I used the Bee4me, Hive4bee,  and the matching dies.


Stephanie has a great video showing how to use this great new stamp.


As always, you can find lots more inspiration in the Gallery too.

We Go Together

Happy Sunday!

I have a quick post before I get ready for the Super Bowl today.

I am sharing a pretty spring card that I made with the Egg-stra Special clear stamp set from The Rubber Cafe'.


'

To create this card I started with a 5 1/4" x 4" panel of yellow cardstock.

I created to layered panels and adhered them to the card.
The flowered panels measure 3 1/2" x 1 1/4" and then each successive panel is slightly larger.


Then I added this panel to the card.
The teal panel is 3"  41/4".
The dotted panel is 4" x 1 3/4
The flowered part is 1" x 4"


Then I tied a piece of ribbon around the panel.


I adhered the panel to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" teal card base.

I stamped the bird image on a 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of white cardtock and colored it with colored pencils.
I added the Queen & Co. yellow pearls to the center of the larger flowers.

Then I layered the image panel on a yellow panel and then on a teal panel and adhered it to the card.


The final step was to stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the card with Memento Teal Zeal ink.





Supplies:
Paper: Bazzil Cardstock, Patterned paper
Ink:  Memento Black Tuxedo Ink, Memento Teal Zeal ink,  Tombow USA recycled colored pencils
Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe'-Scrap Happy Glue
Embellishments:  Queen & Co. yellow pearls, seam binding ribbon

Saturday Sketch w/stencils

I have one more project to share this week using the Stencil Duo Sets designed by Fran Seiford come with complementing metal stencils, a micron pen for doodling and a set of blank cards to begin projects right out of the packaging.

The Stampendous design team will be sharing these fabulous sets with new projects during our weekend hop with the folks at Tombow USA where there will be more inspiring projects using them as well.
For my project today I used the Blossom Duo Stencil Set.


I used my Tombow USA recycled color pencils to color the flower.
I used the Mono Glue Pen from Tombow USA to color parts of the pattern to adhere glitter.


The sketch was one that I chose to challenge my friend Chaunnelle and I with for our Saturday Sketch.

I Love You

It’s a new week with an exciting new product line to highlight from the Stampendous January release! The Stencil Duo Sets designed by Fran Seiford come with complementing metal stencils, a micron pen for doodling and a set of blank cards to begin projects right out of the packaging.

The Stampendous design team will be sharing these fabulous sets with new projects all weekend long as we hop with the folks at Tombow USA where there will be more inspiring projects using them as well.
I used the Heart Duo Stencil set for today's fun gatefold card.




I started by tracing the heart shape with the heart stencil.
Then I lay the companion stencil over the heart.



I traced the design on to the heart.




To create the card base I scored an 8 1/2"  5 1/2" panel of white cardstock at 2 1/8" and at 6 3/4".



I covered the front panels with slightly smaller red panels.
I tied a piece of red ribbon (May Arts) around the left side.



Then I adhered a Tombow USA Fastener Tab on the right panel.



I adhered the left side of the heart to the left side of the card with glue.



The fastener keeps the card closed but then it's easy to open.



I added the sentiment panel to the bottom of the card.



The heart image was colored with Tombow USA recycled color pencils.



Here it is when it's opened up.
