Stamp Ink Paper Challenge: In Style

Welcome to the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge Tuesday style! This post is coming to you from the road.  Yes, being retired has it’s perks and I’ve been out of the country for the last four days.  What in the world would we do without WiFi?

Sometimes, it’s not difficult to create a card for a sketch challenge, but it sure is difficult to choose which set you’re going to use.  Close your eyes and just pick one! That’s exactly what I did and I couldn’t be happier because it’s already one of my favorites.

Stamp Ink Paper Challenge

The Details:

  • Stamp it.  Seriously!, that’s how easy it was to come up with this technique (LOL). It’s what I love about layouts.
  • Where to place the sequin!? I think this was the most difficult decision I had to make for this card.  Wherever you decide to place your sequin, just remember don’t adhere them down to the carsick until you know for sure where they  belong.  Embellishments should add a balance to the card.  But in reality, does it matter? LOL, probably not, just don’t place them on the very edge of the card.  You’ll feel off kilter.

Big News… In a Rut!?

Wedding

Do you ever find yourself in a rut? Well, when I don’t post for a few days you know why! I’m in a deep rut and can’t seem to find my way out.

When I find myself in one of my funky ruts I take out a stamp set that and just stare at it…just kidding. I Google the name of the stamp set, but don’t bother clicking on the links (that wastes time I don’t have).

Instead, after Googling the name of the stamp set (example, Big News Stampin’ Up!) click right on “Images”… how do ya think I found this awesome inspiration!?

Wedding

How was it done? I used a Real Red Stampin’ Right Marker and brushed it on only the image I wanted. From the same stamp set I colored in the stamp with the word WEDDING in it and used my Stamp-a-mi-jig to line it up just right.

Since the word “WEDDING’ was not the same size as the other words I simply added a couple of rhinestones on each side to fill in the gaps.

I hope you do what I do when you are in a rut as you find ways to use a stamp set that is VERY versatile and can be used in different combinations.  Be inspired by a different way to use the stamp set here.

Think of just ONE friend who also suffers from In-a-Rut syndrome go on and send them this post so they too can learn something new when in a rut!

Stampin’ Up in the Air with FMS #22

[pinit]As I head out the door to what I hope to be my last temporary duty assignment overseas (not Hawaii this time), I needed a card idea that was “out of my comfort zone”…so I chose colors I seldom use.  I put this birthday card together for the {Freshly Made} Sketches #22.  I enjoy using every bit of paper from my inventory, but I often find myself neglecting some of the prints I don’t know how to use.  I pulled out a print that I had not used before and whala.  Continue reading below to find out about how to get free stamp sets from me through my Mata-bout Paper Rewards.

MATA-BOUT TIP: Pearls don’t always have to be white or vanilla color… it’s easy to change the colors with the use of a colored sharpie. I wanted the pearl color to stand out in the center of the flowers. Rhinestones can also be colored in to add a little bit of bright bling to any project.  All supplies needed to duplicate any of my cards are available through my on-line store and you can browse through it 24 hours 7 days a week!
