Stamp Ink Paper: Beach

Although Summer isn’t technically over, school-aged kids associate the end of Summer with the return of the school year.  Today’s Stamp Ink Paper Challenge is the beach and although I’m not a fanatic beach lover, I do love the sound of the ocean.  That is what I tried to capture with this retired stamp set, Seaside Sketches.

I’d love to see your version of this challenge.

The Details:

  • Paper Pumpkin Kit Recyled.  If you’re a Paper Pumpkin subscriber you know that we sometimes may have a a few supplies left over.  That’s where the card base came from.  The lines are not stamped, but rather it’s the printed cardstock.  It was my last one, so I’m really glad I recycled it.
  • Sun in 3D.  The sun is a circle punch which was cut in half to give a sunset popping off the card.  I stacked to Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it an extra lift off the card.

Butterflies: Live Laugh Love

Last weekend I was at the Stampin’ Up! On Stage Event in San Diego and besides having a blast with my crafting friends, I met an extraordinary woman named Doris Martin.  A Holocaust Survivor, she beat the odds in life! Let me tell you, she was something else and I’ll never forget her.  She signed my book and as I hugged her she held me tightly and said in my ear, “Sweetie, with Peace & Love you have everything.  So live life, laugh always, and give away your love.”  Her words put tears in my eyes and I just had to share this with you.  I just started to read her book, Kiss Every STEP and I have to say, “I can’t put it down!”  You can get one yourself on Amazon.

Having visited Dachau in Germany years ago and remembering what I saw at the museum came flooding back as if it was just yesterday.  The weird thing was that I made the card a few weeks ago before ever meeting her and I found it lovely that she used the words on the card when I hugged her.  I think I’m just going to have to send her the card.  Be Blessed and Be Thankful!  Keep on Living, Laughing, and Loving!

The Details:

  • Simplicity is in the details.  Punch, Adhere, Stamp & Emboss and BOOM you’re done!  The particular Designer Series Paper on my card is no longer available, but don’t let that stop you!  Use your favorite or whatever you have on hand.
  • Butterfly punches are retiring.  Yes, they are being retired in May and they’re only available while supplies last.  So you may want to grab them now before they’re gone for good.  With a bone folder give the butterfly wings a little curl inward to give them the in-flight 3D look.
  • Embossing powder.  Use whichever color your heart desires.  The black one I used is retired by us, but you can get more colors here.

Stamp Ink Paper: Tic Tac Toe Easter

Today’s card is dedicated to God.  He gave me Life and a talent that I still critique more than anything.  I believe in practicing reflection often and not just once a year.  Today I think of all the wonderful friendships I have made simply because I love to stamp.  Creativity is a work in progress for many of us and the #1 way to push oneself to learn more is to participate in challenges.  Thank you so much for visiting today….now in time for Easter hop on over to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #94 – Tic-Tac-Toe!

So go on and get your Easter Bunny on with us over at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.

The Details:

  • Bunny.  Use a small oval punch or the smallest oval framelit from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and cut one side straight across.  For the head, the smallest circle in the Layering Circle Framelits Dies would be perfect.  However, you can use any size oval and circle because you can make the bunny as large or small as you’d like.  I got the pink tail from a different project, which was purchased from one of the big box stores (they’re fairly cheap).  
  • Crosses.  I stamped the Hardwood stamp with Soft Suede ink.  I then cut little tiny rectangular pieces to make the crosses.  They came out perfect!
