Random Stamping Revisited

My first real adventure into stamping was learning how to create pattern paper with stamps and ink. If you have stamps and ink, you will always have the perfect coordinating pattern paper.

A new class, Coffee and Cards, was held at a local coffee shop. Each guest created their own pattern paper using the Pretty Petals (C1599) and Doodled Design (A1170) stamp sets and White Daisy cardstock.

Starting with the largest image from the Pretty Petals, randomly stamp starting in one corner and moving down and across the page. You need to make a visual triangle with the large stamp image.

Now stamp the smaller flower (Honey ink), the leaf (Sweet Leaf ink), from the Pretty Petals stamp set, and the heart and the three dot cluster (Slate ink) found on the stamp Doodled Design.

Keep the images close and you can even overlap. This large piece will soon be cut into 12 cards.

We created 12 cards using three Make It From Your Heart Volume 2. Just like a cookbook, this wonderful how-to book, will walk you through a delicious crafting recipe.

See how stamping the images close together, gives you a great visual on your card.

I hope you enjoyed, I love to hear from you so please leave a comment.

Holiday Expression goes LIVE

A NEW Holiday Expression Idea Book went LIVE today, September 1st!! And it is FULL of Fall and Holiday FUN!!

There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
