Saturday Morning Stamp Club: Covered Composition Notebook

It has become a stamp club tradition to create customized / personalized notebooks.

Here’s this months version….

The insides are decorated as well.  A flat glassine bag has been added to secure a note you might want to give your recipient — that’s assuming you will be giving it away!!

DSP is cut to 9 x 12 for the covers, and 9 x 7 for the liners.  You will need two each.  When adhering DSP to your notebook, do not be conservative — use LOTS — it would be awful for your beautiful notebook to fall apart!!!

Who will you give a personalized notebook too ?

If you plan on keeping it for yourself, what will you write in it ?

Better yet, make two — one to give, and one to keep!!!

Happy Stamping!  Bye for now, Maria

Saturday Morning Stamp Club: Happy Birthday

At August Stamp Club we used a “Masking” Technique.  The open area, where the sentiment is, has been “masked.”

We stamped an all over pattern while “masking” a space to stamp the Happy Birthday Sentiment.

{TIP} My super savvy niece created this lovely masking template.  Slide your card stock under the strip of paper.  Notice the dark black line across the bottom.  Line the bottom of your card stock with that line so the spot you’re “masking” will be the same area on each cards.  This way all your cards will have a uniform look if you are making a set of cards to give away!

Stamps and Supplies:

  • Birthday Blossoms
  • Pear Pizzaz, Sweet Sugarplum, Very Vanilla Cardtock
  • Pear Pizza, Peach Peekaboo, Sweet Sugarplum Ink
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Happy Stamping!  Keep shining, Maria

Throw Back Thursday

This little adorable teddy bear stamp is the first stamp I ever bought–the first stamp that started my card making / paper crafting journey. 19 years later I still love creating cards!

The stamp is from a company called Personal Stamp Exchange–nope it’s not Stampin’ Up!

Saturday Morning Stamp Club: Versamark Resist

May’s Stamp Club we made this Have a Beautiful Birthday Card.  The technique is Versamark Resist.

Stamp onto card stock with Versamark.  Should dry pretty quickly.  If you are using glossy or coated paper, you will need to heat emboss.  Ink up your brayer and roll over cardstock.  The Versamarked images will “resist” the ink and show through on your card.

Stamps and Supplies used:

  • Birthday Blossoms Stamp Set
  • Lost Lagoon, Whisper White Card Stock
  • Lost Lagoon Ink
  • Whisper White Thick Card Stock
  • Rhinestones
  • Decorative Label and Pansy Punches
  • Brayer

Saturday Morning Stamp Club: Shaving Cream Technique

February’s Stamp Club project was customer requested–shaving cream technique!  Oh what fun!

Here’s what you need:

  • Cardstock
  • Ink refills
  • Squeegee
  • Shaving cream–the cheap stuff from the dollar store
  • Cuticle sticks
  • Something to protect your work surface–I use a self-healing cutting mat
  • Paper towels
  • Smock or apron to protect clothing and gloves to protect hands

Here’s how:

  1. Squeeze out a pile of shaving cream onto cutting mat
  2. Add drops of ink. Here I used Pink Pirouette, Rose Red and Cherry Cobbler
  3. Swirl around with stick, but not to much–you don’t want it to get muddy
  4. Place cardstock onto shaving cream
  5. Pull up and scrape shaving off with squeegee
  6. Buff any reminder shaving cream off with paper towel

Now, your beautiful cardstock is ready to be stamped, embellished or punch out got your project.

The “you are so loved” stamp is from Watercolor Wishes Card Kit.

Happy Stamping!  Keep Shining, Maria
