Giving with Attitude

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

So often we get caught up in what we can do for someone else. But we need to pay attention to something else too…how we do for someone else. What’s our attitude or intent? Without the right kind of attitude then often something gets lost in the translation of the kind act. Make sure your heart is in the right place. Now if you are having a grumpy day and someone is hungry I am sure they will still be happy to get something to eat. But for the every day ins and outs make sure you are at peace so when you help it goes even further.

Happy Crafting!

Playing with Pastels

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I want to show you a newer product called the Soft Pastels Assortment. The Pastels are on page 126 of the Annual Catalog and retail for $9. There are 8 colors — Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, and Poppy Parade. I have found five different ways to create with this medium.

  • Stamp an image and color with the Pastels. Then blend or watercolor with the Water Painters.
  • Stamp an image and color with the Blender Pen. To get the color place the pen directly on to the Pastels.
  • Stamp an image and color with the Pastels. Then after smooth with your finger.
  • Shave some of the Pastel of your color choice on to a Silicone Mat and use a Blending Brush to pick up the color. Then either color a stamped image or use a mask or stencil.
  • And last, but not least, use a Sponge Dauber to pick up the color and then either color an image or use a mask.

For full details on how to do all of this and to see this card being created please go to https://youtu.be/IBGWm-Va_ho.

A picture is worth more.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! In this time of graduations do not be afraid to allow a photo to be the entire front of your card.

Find some really great Designer Series Paper and make a frame for it. You can do this be cutting a mat and simply taking a knife and creating slits in the corners for the photo to tuck in to. Then whomever can take the photo out and keep it without their being glue or tape on the back of it.

How to clean your stamps and your blocks.

It’s Technique Tuesday! I thought instead of giving you a technique I would instead tell you how to clean your stamps and your blocks. This will ensure you get the best image possible when stamping.

To clean your stamps (the photopolymer ones) take a container and fill an inch or so with warm soapy water (Dawn soap is what I use). Place stamps in water for about 5 minutes, rinse, and then dry.

To clean your blocks…for a quick clean use hand sanitizer and a chamois. For a deep clean take them to the sink and wash with warm soapy water.

Massage as an example.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest and recharge so the rest of the week goes more smoothly.

Have you ever gone to a massage, especially a deep tissue one? The kind of rub down that almost has you feeling sore after it? Sometimes you have to rest by breaking down all the kinks in your life and getting rid of them. Stop and look at what causes drama and stress and see what can be done about it.

Oh, and remember, drink plenty of water to wash away those toxins afterwards.

Happy Crafting!

Just smile.

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

We have talked about so many things on these Friday posts, but today I want to just keep it simple. Just smile. Even if it is behind a mask you can tell if someone is smiling. A smile and bright eyes tend to lighten your own mood as well as those around you.

So, for today, just smile.

Happy Crafting!

Kits make it easy.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I want to talk to you about making creating easy. Sometimes you just need something without a ton of thinking. You might have someone new crafting with you or the grandkids are here for the summer and need something to do. Then kits just might be the answer.

On the video I go over how the kits work and open a couple of them. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Here’s the link for the video, https://youtu.be/RSobI9yvfcA.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,
