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!

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

Welcome back, my friends, on this lovely and cool fall day.  The weather here in Utah has become chilly, and with days like today I really enjoy staying inside and working on some crafting.  I hope you will be able to spend the day to create some of the things you have on your list.  My hope is that you will be inspired by today’s projects and will enjoy our today’s Weekly Scrapper post.

Stay Wild & Sweet

This adorable layout has multiple photos with an interesting background.  These two things are not always so easy to pull together.  The desired end result is to have your photos take center stage and everything around them should only be there to complement your photos. This layout is a perfect example of just that.  The beautiful background colors really complement the photos, instead of competing for your attention.  You automatically have your eyes drawn to the precious photos and then you take in the rest of the design. This makes for a perfect layout!

Stay Wild & Sweet

This is simply stunning!  The twine accents as well as the embellishment groupings are very tastefully done.  For an easy-to-follow tutorial with a lot of great photos, click here and I will take you over to the Soaring blog where you will be inspired by Jinny Newlin.  Have a fun time crafting!

Thankful

I just love making cards!  Whether they are simple, detailed, any occasion, or seasonal they are just so fun to make.  I think the one thing I love most about cards is taking the time to share the finished product with those who I care about and love.  I often think of how blessed I am in my life to have such great friends and family and so I need to send out more cards as this one created by Debby Hughes.

Thankful

I just love the warm tones Debby uses in her card, along with her beautiful watercoloring details.  Click here and I will escort you on over to Lime Doodle Design where you can find the links to the supplies that Debby used for this fabulous card.  I hope you will be inspired today to pull out your watercolors and begin some beautiful fall projects.  Happy crafting!

Create a fabulous Halloween wreath!

With Halloween just around the corner, here is an absolutely darling Halloween wreath to create and hang on your door or wall. This fun wreath will capture so much attention. Who would have ever thought that an embroidery hoop could turn into something so darling?

Halloween Wreath

Use an embroidery hoop the size of wreath you desire. For the center, cut out heavy cardstock to fit the hoop and glue it on. Then cut 6 x 1″ paper strips of several different Halloween printed papers. Using a bone folder or scissors, curl your paper and then glue the paper around the hoop. You can add some ribbon along with the paper if desired. With a banner paper punch or die, cut out the Halloween banner, making the size according to the size of hoop you use. Create the banner adding some die cut or sticker letters to spell the word Halloween. Add “Oct. 31” with either a die cut or stickers using glitter paper.  For the final touch, add a few gold bat embellishments along with a ribbon at the top to hang it with. So simple, so fun, and so creative!

I’d like to thank Linda Walsh for sharing her darling wreath; make sure to stop by her blog for more inspiration. Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Happy Halloween!!!!

My Favorite Peeps

My Favorite Peeps

Perfect image for sending to my favorite peeps! Love it! I stamped her on X-press it blending card and colored her up with my copics. Sherrie used a little mint spica pen on her dress for fun. Then cut her out with the Notebook Paper Die-namics…..and she used the sweet little peep from the Woven Basket Die-namics and Banana Felt.  Let’s not forget the little pom pom for the tail 🙂 So sweet.

Cupcakes You’ll Want to Eat But Shouldn’t

Don’t these just look good enough to eat?

What an adorable card to make for Valentine’s Day, or even for a birthday.

I found these darling cupcakes on Pinterest and thought how fun and easy these would be to make.  What a creative way of using  paper doilies, embossing folders, your favorite scrapbook paper and various cardstock.  I love the distressed edges that creates the Shabby Chic look.  Adding the heart, ribbon, and pearls just gives it the finishing touch for these adorable little cupcakes.

Need a fun quick and adorable card?   Well here you go.  Have fun creating!
