Dapper Birthday Stamp Set Now Available!

Hello, friends!

So very sorry it's been a while since I've been around these parts. Life has taken me for quite a ride lately, but I'm hanging on for the ride.  Isn't that just what you have to do?

My sanity through it all is getting my fingers inky and playing with my stamps.

I'm excited to share this newly released set here with you today!  It was a past Kit of the Month Stamp Set with Fun Stampers Journey, which means it was exclusive to only kit subscribers during that month AND remained unavailable for anyone to purchase for the next three months after that.

But, as of February 1st, it is NOW AVAILABLE to everyone!!!!


SS-0249 Dapper Birthday Stamp Set


YAY!  That is super exciting because we all need more masculine options when it comes to stamping products.....especially for making birthday cards! Yes?  YES!

Isn't it just FABULOUS?

Here is the super quick card that I made using this stamp set.....


You'll notice a lovely texture to the Pool Play (light blue) Cardstock. That was created by using the scoring blade and scoring vertical lines every 1/4" across the width and then turning the piece of cardstock 90 degrees and repeating the same procedure again.  Such a fun and simple way to add a GREAT texture to your cards with the scoring blade that comes with the Paper Trimmer.

Here is a bit of a close-up so you can see that technique a bit better. So fun! 



The other thing that I thought was super fun to incorporate into this card was to use a mustache die-cut from the Furry Mustache die-cut plate.  There are multiple mustaches to choose from making the combinations you can come up with so much fun!  Here is a photo of that die set.

RG Lumberjack Days Blog Hop

Hi friends, If you're looking for the Season's Givings Blog Hop, please scroll down one post.

*********

The lumberjack fashion is in full swing and this collection is no exception. With a romantic flair and a fashion forward style, this collection brings the great outdoors into your craft room for a warm and cozy feeling. With masculine designs and a feminine twist, you can bring paper to a whole new level of lumberjack days.

I created two cards to share with you today featuring the gorgeous texture of the Pine Needles Embossing Folder that is in the collection. It is a nice companion to the texture of the Knitted Pattern that is being offered in the giveaway this week.  What is also so fabulous about the stamps in the collection is that the matching dies are coupled right along with them in the same package....how awesome is that!?

Anywho....here is a sneak at the Lumberjack Days collection.  You're sure to get a wonderful taste of what the collection entails by clicking through the hop to see how each of the designers have used various pieces of the collection.

Here's how I worked my magic with it....isn't this Lumberjack the coolest!?  I love how using a different variety of coloring mediums can make him look so very different. I'm sure you'll see another version or two of him along the way.



Isn't that Pine Needles texture AMAZING!?!?  I looooooooove it!


I've used it here again on this card, but first I stamped the 'forest of trees, but repeating the same stamp (a set of three trees) three times at varying heights, then I overstamped that again in the same color ink to give it some depth and made it look like a dimensional forest.  After stamping I ran the entire piece through with the Pine Needles Embossing folder. However, the texture is harder to see in a photo on cream colored cardstock.  But in person, it is just as lovely as the grey is in the card above.


And now here's the exciting part.....the part where you can win some of this amazing collection for yourself!  Oooooooooooh. Aaaaaaaaaah.  Isn't it pretty?

Season's Givings Blog Hop Year 4


Hello, friends!  Happy 2016!!! 

Welcome to Year 4 of the Season's Givings Blog Hop!  I first want to thank the amazing Latisha Yoast for giving so much of her time and energy to help knit our community of crafters together....she's awesome, isn't she!? And then, I want to thank YOU, for taking time out of your schedule to peek into this little space of mine. I am SO happy to have you visiting me here. I hope the holidays have treated you kindly and that you are ready to plant two feet firmly on the ground in 2016, and are freshly inspired to craft, craft, and craft some MORE! We all need more time to do a little more of that, now don't we!? And if you aren't inspired to craft yet, you SURELY will be after you've clicked through the list of participants and completed this hop! There are some mega-talented folks sharing along with me...not sure how I got so lucky to be among them, but I'll stay until they kick me out! HA! 

If this is the first time we are meeting I'd love to have your company over on Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook, too!

Today I'm sharing a seasonal home decor item that can freshen up your living space after you've taken down all those Christmas decorations and it is one you can leave up all throughout the winter months. I even have the entire step-by-step process to share with you, as well, but if anything is still unclear, feel free to email me using the link over there in the right-hand sidebar and I'll get back to you right away. Cool? Cool. Don't be shy. And, well, if you live in a climate that doesn't have snow, I'm hoping that you can still be inspired by something I've shared here.....or maybe click around the blog a bit and find a little something else that suits your fancy?


Before I get started, you might like to know that all of the products used in this project are from Fun Stampers Journey.

The Unfinished Wood Easel is the perfect d├ęcor piece to intertwine into your holiday decorating. For this project I've used the Large version.  By combining stamped images from Snow Burst Stamp Set the with the coordinating Snow Burst Die-Cut pieces, and mixing in a nice dose of Journey Media products you can pull together a delightful wintery scene quickly!

To start, you’ll paint your easel with two coats of Butter Cream paint, allowing it to dry between each layer. As your easel is drying you can start to prep the other pieces that are needed to assemble the scenery on your “Let it Snow” easel insert.

The base for your “Let it Snow” insert is a 12” x 12” Whip Cream Cardstock that is cut in half and sprayed with Cool Pool Color Splash. After allowing it to dry, layer it with 2 coordinating 3” x 6” strips of paper from the Winter Fresh Prints Paper Pad and adhere them to the left-hand side leaving a 1 ½” margin.


On top of the printed paper, using foam squares, you will layer one large steel rule die-cut snowflake cut from the Specialty Paper Pearled Celebrations and embellish with a Cool Pool Bezel Dot. Also using foam squares, adhere additional snowflakes stamped with the Snow Burst Stamp Set and Journey Silver True Color Fusion Ink, and then die-cut with the coordinating dies. Each of the centers of these snowflakes are embellished with either a Sparkle Drop or a Cut Rhinestone. Add additional dimension and shine the the project by allowing some of the smallest snowflakes to rest on top of a Metal Accent. You’ll notice in my piece I’ve placed them in a visual triangle which is more pleasing to the eye. When placing your snowflakes, be sure to leave a space for your “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow” sentiment which is stamped in River Stone Ink on Oatmeal Cookie Cardstock and then die-cut and double-layered using the Tag Elements Die Set.


Lastly, create the look of a blustery winter’s day by twirling and swirling your Natural Journey Twine around and behind the arms of your snowflakes. This is easiest to do with two 24” pieces of twine rather than one super long piece that is more likely to get tangled as you work. As you twirl and loop your twine, use Journey Glue Dots and the Foam Squares that are holding the snowflakes to hold the twine in place. You can hide where the ends start and stop behind a snowflake.

Supplies:
Snow Burst Stamp Set SS-0144
Snow Burst Die Set DI-0061
Tag Elements Die Set DI-0094
Snowflake Steel Rule Die SR-0015
Journey Silver True Color Fusion Ink Pad IP-0107

5. A link to your favorite art journaling blog or you-tube channel because I recently got a Journaling Bible that I can't wait to leave my creative mark in.

Nitty Gritty Details:  One entry per person please. Anyone may comment, but at this time I can only mail to an US address. I'm so sorry my international friends. My giveaway will remain open until Friday, January 8, 2016 at 11:59pm. Winner will be announced on Sunday, January 10, 2016.

Welcome to the RG Celebra'tions Blog Hop!

This week the RG Make Amazing Design Team is featuring some amazing projects with Richard Garay's Celebra'tions Collection! Each day a different designer will be featured on his blog so be sure to stop by there as well. It starts HERE.

He has new fun elements that have been added to the Celebra'tions collection and are showcasing at CHA next month! Who gets to go and see them in person??? I'm so jealous of you if you are! But, I digress.

In Richard's words "This Celebra'tions collection is filled with color and hooray! The opportunity to celebrate that special moment and bring paper to life with yummy designs, amazing textures and an inviting color pallete is what makes this collection something to celebrate about!"

And you can see from this card that I've created using only supplies and dies from the Celebra'tions collection that it is exactly that....filled with color and hooray! :)

To create this card:
1. First die-cut the Celebra'tions Happy Birthday Die (SCD-034) out of four different colors of Celebra'tions cardstock.  
2. Cut portions of three of them apart, such as the flowers/flower petals, and elephant and ink around the edges using a sponge pounced onto the ink pad then brushed against the edges of the cardstock.
3. Adhere flowers to yellow die-cut using foam dimensional squares.
4. Adhere flower centers using foam squares, apply glaze and ultra fine glitter.
5. Add extra layer of scalloped strip to each side.
6. Back the entire piece with white cardstock to add some contrast and make the colors pop.
7. Tie Celebra'tions Natural Linen Thread (SCT001) around center of die-cut piece.

Playing with Jolly Friends Stamp Set (Fun Stampers Journey)



Hello, again, hello, again, jiggity jig!  What's new today sweet friends!?

Today finds me die-cutting, glazing and adding some sparkle to these darling little characters I've stamped and colored from the Jolly Friends Stamp Set from Fun Stampers Journey. This is one of the sets that has coordinating dies making it super easy to match them up to the stamped image and get a perfectly die-cut shape in no time flat! I got a little over zealous and stamped about 40 of them. Oopsie!  Guess I'll be doing a lot of tag-making.  Assembly-line style crafting is my favorite though. There is such satisfaction in seeing it all done in the end.



Anywho. My sweet little Emma Grace has a December 5th birthday (she'll be turning eleven this Saturday) so we've always been a family that tries to put a pause on the holidays to celebrate her before we let the flurry of holiday activities take over the house, like the all decorating and holiday baking....and yes, even the shopping and gift wrapping.

So, in the meantime, I'm keeping my hands busy with small little holiday projects like this one. I've already stamped the images onto Whip Cream Cardstock using Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink and then I heat set all of the stamping before coloring the images with the Fusion Blender and Re-inker. By heat setting the images, this helps to minimize any bleeding of the ink.

Now that they are dry I've decided that they need some Journey Glaze and some Sparkle Dust and Sparkle Cuts.

Aren't these Jolly Friends just the absolute CUTEST things ever?

I think they will be the PERFECT adornments for some holiday gift tags to go on all my packages, or even to stick onto some of those Advent Boxes that I shared yesterday.

I plan on using the new Tag Set Steel Rule Die to attach these little cuties to.  Once I get them put together, I'll be sure to share a picture of the completed project.

Until then......have you seen the December Kit of the Month!?  Such darling projects!  I can't wait to make the one with the little gift card stuck inside.  The teachers will LOVE it!

More soon........

Christmas Advent Treat Boxes from Fun Stampers Journey

Hello, friends!  December is upon us already and that means a flurry of holiday activities are going on around us, for certain.  Holiday shopping, tree trimming, hot chocolate sipping, over indulging.....and hopefully some fun traditions too, like Advent activities!

We've done some sort of homemade Advent countdown in our house every year and this year will be no different.  While our tradition remains the same, the look of it changes from year to year.



This year I'm using these darling little Advent Boxes from the Journey Advent Box Bundle from Fun Stampers Journey.  They have simplified the process and put everything you need together into one complete kit so that all you have to do is place your order and then sit down with the family and assemble it!

Gabby, co-owner of Fun Stampers Journey shows just how easy it is to bring it all together in this darling little video.



Of course, if you're like me, and you like to over indulge when it comes to crafting you can go above and beyond and add in a few more parts and pieces to take some of them over-the-top! Which is exactly what I've done here on this treat box.


For my treat box, I've used a die from the Journey Blooms Holiday Die Set along with three different shades of cardstock to build a wreath along the edge of a Journey Circle Die Cut for the front of my Advent Box.  Once my wreath was built, I then glazed the tips of the leaves and sprinkled Journey Sparkle Dust and Journey Sparkle Cuts on them for some added glitz!  Lastly, I cut up one of the pre-printed bread tags into a smaller sentiment to rest inside the wreath.


I love that this Bundle is very versatile in that, even if you aren't into doing an Advent Countdown, you can still use all of the bundle components for creating beautiful bags for gift giving.  They are the perfect size for tucking small gifts inside, like ornaments, gift cards, some handmade treats, a pair of gloves and a scarf! I will be filling several for teachers gifts!

In fact, I'll be back soon with more ideas on how you can decorate these boxes using some of the other products offered by Fun Stampers Journey and also offer some links to other designers that have made darling projects with them too!

If you are looking for Fun Stampers Journey products, they can only be purchased through a Journey Coach. Find one local to you on their website at www.funstampersjourney.com!

Day 5: Be Brave: Create Hope Card Drive

Today is the final card share for the Be Brave: Create Hope Card Drive

Here is my card for today.....


Instead of a tutorial today, I thought I'd share the words I'm putting inside of my cards in case you're struggling with what kind of Words of Encouragement to include in your own.

So here's exactly what I've written in all 5 of my cards.

Throughout this journey you are on, you’ll notice that some days you’ll be living minute by minute, and some days you’ll be able to tackle hour by hour, while others you’ll be able to conquer the entire day with the bravest of braves. We all have our battles to face, and I’m so very sorry that a diagnosis of cancer is yours, but know this….strength doesn’t reside in having never been broken----because we are all broken---but, instead, it lies in the COURAGE required to grow STRONG in the broken parts. I have complete faith that you will grow STRONG from this unexpected journey your life has taken.

Be BRAVE, beautiful soul.
Be STRONG.
Have COURAGE.

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is that quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

Prayers going up for you from Columbus, Ohio!

XO,
Tania Willis

Day 4: Be Brave: Create Hope Card Drive & A Tutorial

It's Day 4 of my Card Sharing for the Be Brave: Create Hope Card Drive. If you missed my post from Monday and have no idea what this is all about, take a minute to click over and check out the details....HERE.

Day 2 is HERE
Day 3 is HERE


Today's card is super simple and really focuses on the graphic POP of the bright white modeling paste on the bold Black Licorice Cardstock using the Vintage Screen stencil.....I LOVE the look! Because the design is so eye-catching and totally steals the show it doesn't require you to layer gobs of other stamped elements and embellishments on top, so you'll notice that I kept those to a minimum, making the assembly of this card super easy peasy!

Here we go.......

Instructions:
1. Cut one Whip Cream Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to create 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base.
2. Cut one Black Licorice Cardstock panel to 4" x 5 1/4". Lay Vintage Screen stencil over panel and spread a thin layer of Journey Modeling Paste over stencil using Spatula. Remove stencil and wash immediately with warm soapy water. Set panel aside to dry.
3. Stamp ribbon from Be Brave Stamp Set onto Whip Cream Cardstock using Watermelon Fusion True Color Fusion Ink and detail cut just outside stamped image.
4. Cut Whip Cream Cardstock to 1" x 2 1/2" and stamp 'Hope' sentiment using River Stone True Color Fusion Ink. Notch right-hand side of strip into a banner.
5. When Black Licorice panel is dry, adhere to card base.
6. Tear off a 3" long strip of Watermelon Fusion polka-dotted tape from the Bright Day Journey Tape and apply to Black Licorice panel, approximately 2" from bottom.
7. Adhere sentiment banner just above tape.
8. Adhere stamped ribbon using foam squares to left of tape and sentiment.
9. Finish card with three Sparkle Drop embellishments placing them on the card base so that they form a visual triangle.

That's it!  Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!

If you're contributing to the card drive, remember you have until Saturday to get them in the mail!  I'll be back tomorrow with one more quick and easy tutorial if you're needing some inspiration. :)
