Looooooooong Snippet Rolls!

 Hi Stamping Fans!

Today I am sharing a couple of snippet rolls I whipped up with scraps!





I've been wanting to create one of these for ages - these are just the most perfect thing to make to use up all of your scraps, excess stamped images, bits & pieces in general - perfect for those of us that just cannot bear to throw anything away - even the tiniest bit of paper!


I had lots of fun delving through my scraps and excess stamped Blank Page Muse images!
I used offcuts of patterned papers designed by Pam Bray available in store along with all the fab rubber stamps by various artists!
I had bits and pieces of background papers/tissue papers using BPM stamps so they were perfect.
As you can see I ran the metre long strip through the sewing machine just to doubly secure everything!


I had so much fun - I have some base strips all ready to create even more of these wonderful snippet rolls! Remember you can add stickers, charms, buttons - any embellishments you have to make your strips even more decorated! Or add extras when you cut off "snippets" to use on your creations!

So many fab stamps to choose from!

Glossy Spritz Technique

 Hello from design team member, Heidi. I hope you are doing well!

I don’t know if this easy background technique already has a name, it doesn’t need one, but I called it Glossy Spritz, for the sake of the blog title.  


Basically, I brayered dye ink on glossy paper. 
You could add it direct-to-paper if you want.  
Next, I spritzed it with water and used my heat gun to dry. 
I repeated the process, as needed, to get an interesting look. 
I think it looks best with multiple colors of ink, but it looks really neat regardless, more dramatic than with regular cardstock.


For each card, I decided to stamp right over top of the background with Archival Black ink.  I just chose very different stamps for each card based on how the background was “feeling” to me.  

Honesty, the biggest trick to making this card is waiting for the black ink to dry so you don’t smudge it.  I hope you might want to try it today as it is so fun and easy.

Here are the stamps I used for these cards:

Animals from MS110 Full Plate in the I Brake for Stamps shop.

Sentiment from Inspirational Phrases in the I Brake for Stamps shop.

Thank You Word Art from the Blank Page Muse Shop.

Flowers from Flower & Bird Sketches from the Blank Page Muse Shop.

**NEW*** Digital "Self Care" Set

 Hi Fans!

Today I am sharing a little booklet made using pages from the *NEW* "Self Care" Digital Journal Set available at the BPM Etsy Store!

Digital files are great to create with - you can resize them, print on your fave paper or cardstock and have lots of fun!



I've printed pages from the set onto cardstock, distressed the edges, "aged" the edges with distress ink, punched holes along the spines and assembled as a little "Self Care" booklet to carry n my handbag!
Great for notes, thoughts or just getting your frustration down on paper and out of your head LOL!!!


These pages print beautifully, nice and clear and I love the soft colors of this set!


Digital files are great to use in conjunction with your stamps and stamped images so stay tuned I have some more digi ideas to share with you!

Stained Glass Flowers

 Hello from design team member, Heidi.  The I Brake for Stamps shop has a wonderful selection of Stained Glass stamps.  I decided to use this one today because the diamond shape really caught my eye!



I heat embossed the stamp with white powder on watercolor paper.  I then colored in the sections with Tombow water-based markers.  I then blended the color, section by section, with a paintbrush dipped in water that I had mixed with Perfect Pearls.  It is really obvious in person, but only the close-up photo shows the lovely shimmer!  

I was in a bit of a traditional mood, so I finished off the card with old patterned papers from my stash and some gems.  

This stamp is part of MS89 Full Plate, along with 8 other images, in the I Brake for Stamps shop.  The sentiment is from Quarter Sheet Dahlia.

Thanks for visiting today and have a wonderful day!
