Ink it! Stamp it! Blog hop: Technique

Friday, April 26, 2019


A few days ago I posted this video on how easy making cards in bulk are with an individual lettering stamp set such as the Hand Lettering Alphabet and the Stamparatus.  Today I wanted to show you firstly how to line the lettering up in the first place, and secondly how to return to that same lettering if you need to clear your Stamparatus plates to do other projects.

Here's the video tutorial:


And this is the card that matches this lettering.  I just love that you can have the same design and mix it up so much by using different colours and DSP.

Birthday Lettering with the Stamparatus

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

How often do you make a card and then decide to make a stack more because you like it so much?  With this card, I'd never make multiples if I had to individually stamp each letter and so hurrah for the Stamparatus which takes out all the pain of making your own sentiments up by keeping the place of each of the letters.


Not only did I make up two cards to begin with, but I easily made another couple as I shot a video (further down) showing you how easy it is to make multiples of these cards that use the same lettering placement.


The rainbow card is stamped in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Blueberry Bushel, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, and Blushing Bride.  


The layers for the rainbow card are: 
3 1/8 x 5 3/8 Whisper White
3 3/8 x 5 3/8 Basic Black
4 1/8 x 5 3/8 DSP of your choice


The layers for the black and yellow card are: 
3 3/8 x 5 3/8 Whisper White
4 1/8 x 5 3/8 DSP of your choice


Don't forget to clear emboss the main sentiment!  For tips and all instructions click on the video below (if you are reading this in an email you will need to click on the blog post to see the video).  Then come back on Friday for a further tip using this same lettering!


Edit: Check out my next blog post and video where I have shown you a neat technique for how to reposition your stamps in the same place after you've had to use your Stamparatus for something else.

Easter

Easter Daffodils

Sunday, April 21, 2019

Happy Easter!  Here in Melbourne we are mid-autumn but that doesn't stop Easter being about new life and so the spring theme carries well here.


When I lived in Scotland, spring was always a blaze of gorgeous wild daffodils that would spring up en masse everywhere you looked.  Their bright colourful heads brought much needed colour after the long, cold, dark winters.  So they are always a favourite of mine for Easter.


The You're Inspiring stamp set has these lovely daffodils in a row so I stamped them twice in Crumb Cake to stretch against the length of the card, popped up the sentiment with a border of Soft Sea Foam (Subtles DSP) and layered everything on Merry Merlot.


Wishing you a joyous week of Easter!

Quick Easter Egg Treat Boxes

Friday, April 05, 2019

I am making up a hundred of these little boxes for Easter this year.  Some for me and lots for friends who are buying them as gifts.  They are a great project to make in bulk becuase there's not too many steps to them.  I've made up one of my quick videos so that you can see how easy it is to put them together.  And as usual, all the measurements are at the bottom of the page.


Each box contains four Easter eggs ( you could possibly squeeze in a fifth if you left out the shredded paper.)

Here's the video tutorial (for those of you looking at this in your email you will need to go to the blog post to see the video).


Easy huh?  You can obviously use patterned paper of your choice, and even make them into treat boxes for other occasions by switching up the image on the front.


Measurements:
Cardstock: 4 x 4 1/2" - score at 1" on all sides
DSP: 6 3/4 x 2 1/2" - score at  2 1/16, 3 1/16, 5 1/8, 6 1/8


Happy crafting,
