Embellishments instead of errors.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Have you ever created a card or project and not known what to put to finish it? Did you already glue it together and wish you had stamped? Then use embellishments!

In this case I had already glued the pocket on and knew that this needed something. I thought of stamping first but knew I really couldn’t with the folds. Instead I reached for the Frosted Flower Embellishments.

Happy Crafting!

Hobbies bring rest.

By the title I bet you think I will talk about stamping.  For many of you stamping is what brings you rest.  And I am sure at some point today I will stamp too.  But what other hobbies (or therapies) do you have?  I like to work out and also to cook.  So today I will be babysitting a brisket and in between getting a few things done.  Tell me what other hobbies do you have besides crafting?

Happy Crafting!

Tiled stamping.

This is probably the only time you will hear me say this.  Punch first and then stamp.  Yes, punch first.  Then lay your punches end to end and stamp as if it was one piece.  This will create a tiled look.

Stay tuned on Thursday to see the finished card.

Stamps are not just for paper.

Do you use your stamps for more than just paper?  Did you know that they could be used for more than paper?  Basically any flat surface can be stamped.  I have been creative on cardstock, wood, fabric, glass, cork, metal, clay, paperclay, and even cookies.  If you stamp into food make sure to clean your stamps very well before you do.  The end to stamping is where your imagination stops.  So be brave and think what kind of ink is for…  If I don’t know the answer I will find out.  So ask away.  Be brave and try something new today.

Happy Crafting!
