Latest & Greatest: Stamping with Hampton Art


Hey everyone! Roree here with today’s Make It! Monday post.

Our next show is in Sacramento, CA on October 20th & 21st. Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. Today I am going to be creating with new products from our Latest & Greatest: Stamping class: Hampton Art‘s Seasonal Stamp & Die Sets.

Today I will be working with the Gratitude Pumpkins Stamp & Die Set:


Note: Stamp & Die Set designs may vary at each show location.

I love that this stamp set comes with coordinating dies. I love to create dimension on my cards, so creating stamped images that can be popped up is an added bonus for me!

With the set, I created this card:


First, I stamped and colored the pumpkin and leaf images with colored pencils.


Then, I die cut the images with my manual die-cutting machine.


I decorated my card front with patterned paper and stickers from Photo Play Paper‘s Autumn Day collection to highlight my stamped pumpkin image.


This Latest & Greatest: Stamping workshop featuring Hampton Art‘s Seasonal Stamp & Die Sets will also be taught at our upcoming show in Ontario. We would love to see you there!

With this fun set, I created this card:

I used a die cut machine to cut out the card, circles, sentiment, hearts and border shapes shapes from cardstock and the the side panels from Photo Play Paper‘s Summer Bucket List 6×6 Paper Pad (another product in the Card Making workshop).

Once the die cuts are layered and adhered together and the card is folded on the score lines, you pull the left side panel and the circle flips so you can see the decorated back.


For this circle, I die cut the Bee Happy sentiment shape and trimmed the bee from the sentiment.

There are so many dies in this set that you can create countless unique cards for many different occasions!

I just love the fun, bright colors in this collection—perfect for any summer-themed project!

I like to use products in unexpected ways and when I saw the fireworks and bowling ball stickers on the Word Strip Stickers sheet, I thought that layered together they would make a great flower center.


I used the plaid side of the 6 x 6″ Cotton Candy paper to cut out some flower shapes. Then I layered the die cuts and stickers together with foam adhesive to create my dimensional flower.


I added a leaves die cut and button to complete the flower, before attaching it to my card front for a fun, little “anytime” kind of card.

Stitched and Distressed Layers Card


Hey, everyone! Roree here with another Make It! Monday project. Today I am sharing how I created a card using my PenBlade craft knife as a distressing tool.


I started with some patterned paper and stickers from the Mad4Plaid collection from Photo Play Paper.


I cut out some square panels from the Lennox and Madras patterned papers, and I distressed the edges by running them through the thread cutting groove on my PenBlade craft knife.


This is a great feature because you can use the knife to distress without the blade being exposed.


I machine stitched around each panel, then layered and adhered the panels together.


I created another square panel from white cardstock, distressed and stitched the edges, and topped it with a flower I created from patterned paper, cardstock, stickers from the Mad4Plaid Delightful sticker sheet, machine stitching, a felt flower sticker, and a button.


I adhered the decorated panel to the center of the layered panels and adhered the completed panel to the front of a square card to finish.


I hope you enjoyed today’s Make It! Monday project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
