More than Work

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest so you can be recharged for the week.

I don’t know about you but it’s been awhile since I have travelled. Between my daughter moving out and the dog’s health declining I didn’t have much time for fun. So now I am sitting here starting to plan fun things again.

I knew the season of not doing much would come to an end. I am grateful I had it but now I am ready to get back to life and adventures.

Have you gone through seasons that were not what you felt were your normal?

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Just Be Kind

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

Recently my daughter went in for a job interview. The manager, instead of interviewing her, took the time to complain about many of his employees to her. Unfortunately one of these employees was a good friend of hers. So instead of walking out with a good experience (even if she didn’t get the job) she walked out telling us not to eat there again.

Why do I say this? Not to get anyone in trouble or to get sympathy. But instead to remind me (and whoever else needs to hear it) that being a good human does not take much. And if I am having an off day the reminder is there to just keep my mouth shut.

Here’s to giving back by not adding to the negativity around me.

Happy Crafting!

Tunnel Card

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I want to show you how to create a tunnel card. I have also heard this called a spotlight card as well.

Usually I don’t include measurements but I figured you might want some quick ones so you don’t have to go back through the entire video.

  • 5 ½” X 8 ½” for white base and both designer series papers
  • Score base and base dsp at 4 ¼” on the 8 1/2″ side
  • Score tunnel piece at 2 1/8”, 4 ¼”, 6 3/8”, and then cut circle. Middle score goes up.
  • Pillar or banner pieces cut at 2” X 5 3/8”

And the front looks like this.

And here’s the supply list.

  • Thick Basic White or Very Vanilla Card Stock (Annual Catalog page 140)
  • Rustic Harvest 12” X 12” Designer Series Paper (Mini Catalog page 49)
  • Crushed Curry Card Stock (Annual Catalog page 123)
  • Cajun Craze Ink Pad (Annual Catalog page 123)
  • Paper Trimmer (Annual Catalog page 155)
  • Snips (Annual Catalog page 155)
  • Stampin’ Seal (Annual Catalog page 127)
  • Dimensionals (Annual Catalog page 127)
  • Mini Dimensionals (Annual Catalog page 127)
  • Peaceful Moments Cling Stamp Set (Annual Catalog page 29)

Markers are for more than paper.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!

Today I want to talk to you about how to use the markers for more than coloring on paper or card stock.

The Stampin’ Write Markers can also be used to color on stamps. Since the ink in the markers (round barrel) is the same as what we have in the ink pads you can color stamps. Just grab whatever color(s) and color away. When done coloring just huff on the stamp and the moisture in your breath will bring the ink back to life. Now stamp the image on card stock or paper just like normal.

And the Stampin’ Blends (alcohol-based markers)(rectangular barrel) can be used to color glass, metal, cork, wood, embellishments, and card stock. They cannot be used to color the stamps though. They dry so quickly that they are not effective for this. But any other material can be colored and it is almost immediately dry with the Stampin’ Blends.

Happy Crafting!

How to Rejuvenate Well Loved Stamps

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today is not so much a technique but taking care of your stamps. I want to share with you how to maintain them.

With the photopolymer stamp sets you wash them when they don’t stick any longer. Grab a small container (so they don’t go down the drain), add some warm water, and a drop of Dawn dish soap. Drop the stamps in the container and let them soak for 5 minutes. Then rinse off and pat dry with a lint-free towel or paper towel. You are ready to go again.

But with the cling stamps it is a bit different. Instead of washing them you use the stamps until they don’t stick to the block any longer. In the old days when this would happen I would use adhesive or Chapstick to stick the stamp to the block. Then I was washing the blocks and wiping off the stamps as best as I could. But now I have a better solution.

I bought a pack of the Cling Adhesive and have used it to bring a few of my stamps back to life. You peel the sticker back off the page and simply place your stamp (sticker side down) into the exposed cling adhesive. When you pull up your stamp you might need to trim a little excess off with your Snips. But then your stamp is brand new and ready to go again.

Let me know if this helps you and if you need a pack of this magic Cling Adhesive as well.

Happy Crafting!

No Procrastination

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest so you can be recharged for the week.

I have learned that if I procrastinate during the week I can’t rest as well on Sunday. I can’t make peace with sitting still. I almost feel guilty because I haven’t properly earned the time to not produce.

Well, this week I definitely feel that I have earned my rest time. So much has happened. I have had change and catch up to do.

So now I am at peace with resting today. Are you?

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
