Foam for stamps!

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

The Foam Adhesive Sheets can be used for several projects. They can be used to pop things up or to seal a shaker card. But did you know that the Foam Adhesive Sheets can help you to create a stamp? Yes, a stamp.

Grab your Foam Adhesive Sheet and some card stock and cut out what you want to create a stamp. Then peel the backing off the sheet and stick to a block or anything that can be used as a handle. Tip: One word of caution…the sheet is very sticky so be careful what you stick it to.

Ink as normal to create a background.

If you create with this tip please post a photo on my page, https://facebook.com/StampingWithJoni.

Happy Crafting!

Creating an edge.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today I want to show you how to create an edge.

When you are cutting out a shape from the dies do not push out your paper. Instead leave it in the die and grab your stylus. Run your stylus just around the edge to create a raised edge.

To see this in action please join me tomorrow night for the Facebook Live at 7 pm on https://facebook.com/StampingWithJoni.

Happy Crafting!

How to know when to rest.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to focus on resting so you can be recharged for the upcoming week.

So how do you know if you are adequately rested? If you have these symptoms then it might be time to rest a little extra. (Now this is for when you are physically working out, but a lot can be said for this mentally as well.)

  • You are excessively sore.
  • You have a nagging pain.
  • You feel “off”.
  • You are losing enthusiasm.
  • You are fatigued.

You also need to know the difference between planned and unplanned rest periods. A planned period is when you block off time to rest. An unplanned period is when your body needs rest and “yells” at you. This can be done with any of the symptoms listed above being exhibited.

So I would encourage you to listen to your body so you know when to plan your rest periods. I know since I have been listening I have fewer unplanned ones.

Just listen.

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

Have you ever had a bad day? Have you ever had something happen and it’s just overwhelming? What made it better? Did someone come to the rescue?

This week someone I know was having a really bad day. Just bad luck. Nothing personal, just straight up bad luck. And she was mad, hurt, disappointed… She came back a few hours later and said thank you for listening. Thank you for letting me just be mad for a bit.

There are moments to share and moments to just listen. Who do you have that just listens when you need it most?

Happy Crafting!

Masks are for stamping.

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

Our inks can be used for so much and so many different materials. Besides paper or card stock; you can also stamp on wood, glass, cork, plastic, shrink plastic, fabric, and pretty much anything you can imagine. Did you know that you could also stamp on masks? Yes, masks. So if you need a little flair to those plain boring face coverings get them in the craft room.

Happy Crafting!

Helping your foil to not be scratched.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today’s technique is not for a specific card but instead how to make your paper look better.

Have you run a piece of foil through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and it is all marked up? There’s a way to minimize this. When you get new cutting plates designate one plate as your top one and the other as your bottom. The bottom one will get scratched up but the top will have minimal marring. If you keep your top and bottom plates consistent then you will have less scratches on your foil.

Happy Crafting!
