Fun take on using mermaid2stamp

Hello Friends,

Here's a great post from design team member Katherine @craftingwithkatherine with a fun twist on how to use mermaid2stamp!

Hi there, Katherine here! I have a fun card to share today:
I stamped three Mermaids using Licorice Archival ink onto a piece of watercolor paper. I then pulled out my reinkers and painted the ocean scene. 

While this was drying, I cut scallop rectangles from Blueberry and Ocean card stock. I layered this onto an A2 card base of Sky.

I stamped the sentiment onto Powdered Sugar using Blueberry ink. I stamped and die cut the balloon using Guava and popped it up with Adhesive Foam. I also added a small piece of coordinating twine from a previous Card kit. 

The finishing touches were to tie on a piece of Guava ribbon and several Pink Hearts. These hearts are so pretty and iridescent. You can see how they change in the light:
Here is the inside sentiment:

Thanks for "swimming by" today...
Reinkers used on this card:

Enjoy your weekend everyone! Happy Stamping!

Super Sweet Summer


 Hello My Friends!

Today we are bringing you a guest post from Guest Designer Lindsey Larson! Lindsey says "I enjoy crafts...and occasionally I actually get to do them."

Lindsey has created some super sweet summer watermelon cards using watermelon2stamp and Sweet Statement Set

Read on to see what Lindsey has to say about the projects she created!

Good morning!  I'm here today to share with you some cards featuring one of my favorite things about summer - watermelon!  I love it, and it turns out I love creating with watermelons just as much as I love eating it. :) In fact, I had so much fun creating with the cutest watermelon stamps and dies from The Stamps of Life that I've got projects to share with you not just today but through the rest of the week.  So let's get started!
I was immediately drawn to the size and script of the die in the Sweet Statement SetObviously this set could be used for countless occasions and styles, but I decided to fully and unabashedly embrace the watermelon theme on my card. 
A little glitter cardstock, some simple embossing, and a few die cut seeds made for a quick but fun card. 


Since not a whole lot of stamping was involved in the creation of my first card, I decided to go the opposite route for my second.

Using the melon portion from The Stamps of Life's Watermelon2Stamp and the patterned rinds from the Patterns4Watermelon set, I created a simple stamped background using a variety of pinks and greens.
Not wanting to cover up any of those fun watermelons, I simply finished the card off with the layered sentiment dies in the Watermelon Die Set.

The Stamps of Life stamps and dies were so easy and fun to use. I can't wait to share the rest of my projects with you, there are more to come!
We'll be posting more of Lindsey's great work soon!

Watercoloring with Katherine

Hello friends,

Today we are bringing you a fun watercolor project by design team member Katherine!

Katherine used the exclusive stamps and dies from the Dream Big Online Class. This class/kit is available as a recorded event. Read all about it HERE

Here's a great shot of the finished project!

Katherine used the mini ink pads to lay down some in on a craft mat. You can also use plastic from packaging, wax paper, parchment paper, or clear acetate sheets are our favorite!

When watercoloring make sure you are using the Black Archival Ink Pad. This is a pigment ink and will not run when water is added like the dye ink will.

Pick up the ink using TSOL water brushes and color in the image.

We like to suggest to do a light color wash of the area and then come back with same color and add around the edges to darken in some areas. If you let the image dry and then add more water color  you'll get a different effect, so try that too.

Add some simple embellishments and place on a card base to finish off the project. Coloring is super relaxing and we hope you give it a try!

Go grab some supplies and get creative! Post your projects and tag us so we can see what you made!
