Latest & Greatest: Stamping with Echo Park Paper Co.


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

Our next show is this week in Schaumburg, IL on August 18th-19th. Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with products from our Stamping workshop: Echo Park Paper Co.‘s A2 Background Stamp.

I received the Constellation Love Background stamp:

The stamp size is 4 1/2 x 5 3/4″, so the image will cover your entire A2 card if you want it to and it is super adorable!

With it, I created this card:


I stamped the background on paper from Echo Park’s Wedding Bliss collection (a product from our Latest & Greatest: Card Making workshop), and colored the heart, diamond, and arrow images with a slightly darker pink colored pencil to highlight them.


I just love this stamp! I can see using it on so many different type of projects.

This Latest & Greatest: Card Making workshop featuring Echo Park Paper Co.’s A2 Background Stamp will be ending in Schaumburg. We will have a whole new lineup of products for all of our classes starting in Marlborough, MA on September 8th & 9th.

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

Carousel Card

Hello my dear friends, and welcome back to Weekly Scrapper.  What a better way to round out your work week than with five amazing projects that I have gathered to share with you?  I hope today’s post will give you some great “WOW” inspiration from these fun projects (and of course a yummy dessert)!  Shall we get started?  Kick off those shoes, get comfortable, and relax, because here we go!

Dream By Tina Stepanova

You all know by now how much I love creative backgrounds, and an inked mixed media background is one of my favorites.  The combination of embossing powders, inks, and sprays really make a gorgeous background.  Some stamped images in the background really turns this into a beautiful masterpiece.  Think of all the possibilities you can do to create beautiful backgrounds!

Dream

You will find all kinds of inspiration from Tina Stepanova on her blog Dare To Create.  Click here and I will be happy to escort you over to her blog where you will find all kinds of inspiration.  The most important thing is to have fun when creating your backgrounds and layouts. Ok, now let’s get those creative minds to working!  Happy scrappin’!

Carousel Card By Kathy Clement

Did this whimsical card catch your eye as it did mine?  You can make this darling card for a very special occasion.  Choose unique papers and embellishments to design a card that is just perfect for that special person.   Kathy took it a step further and made it function as a mini folio.  This alone makes a perfect gift for any occasion.  Who wouldn’t love and appreciate receiving this beautiful card full of surprises and all the love that went into making it?!

This is just a sneak peak of what you will see inside. Remove the little brown binder clip, and you will find that the front cover is just the beginning.   You just wait, you will totally love this card and will be anxious to make your own!

Kathy created this fun tri-fold design using the Imagine Collection Kit from Authentique.  Are you dying right now to see how Kathy created this gorgeous card?  I am going to take you over to  Authentique’s blog where Kathy shows you every surprise she has created.

Quilt-Inspired Window By Allison Murray

Clear glass doesn’t coordinate with messy shelves!  Ready to hide away your mess, or just add some personality to the window panes on your cabinet?  You don’t need to get rid of that cabinet you are tired of, or even paint it to make it look different.  This is a perfect solution to give your cabinet a totally new look. I just fell in love with how covering the window panes with scrapbook paper brought so much charm to this piece of furniture.   Who would have ever thought to use scrapbook paper this way?

Quilt-Inspired Window

If you fell in love with this stunning cabinet and don’t have one in your home (but wished you did), visit one of your favorite thrift stores or a garage sale.  It is surprising what is available out there. Always remember that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure!  A little distressing, along with adding some fun scrapbooking paper to the window panes, will give you a beautiful piece of furniture for your home.  Let me escort you on over to Dream A Little Bigger where Allison will show you just how she covered her windows and made her cabinet so charming.  Can’t you just see this attractive piece in your home?

Peach Pie Cookies By Vera Zecevic

This cookie is the best of summer in a bite!  The taste of a pie but in the size of a cookie; you are going to fall in love with these scrumptious baked treats!  Peach Pie Cookies bring you the best of both worlds, the deliciousness of traditional peach pie with the convenience of a cookie – no fork required!  I promise you can’t eat just one or two!

Peach Pie Cookies

Make an extra batch and freeze them for cold winter evenings where all you want to think about is summer!  Peach Pie cookies are delicious no matter what the season is!  You can’t go wrong with this delicious recipe.  Click here and I will escort you on over to one of my favorite food blogs “Oh My Goodness Chocolate Desserts.”  I have to say that this will become one of your favorites as well.  You will love all of the wonderful desserts and recipes that Vera has to share!

I want to thank all of the fabulous designers for sharing such wonderful inspiration with us today.  Have a fabulous week ahead, and I hope to see you all back here next Saturday with more fun projects!  I always enjoy our crafty time together!

Latest & Greatest with Waffle Flower Stamps

Hey friends, Becki here to share with you a card that I created using a fun stamp set from our Latest & Greatest Stamping workshop. I used the Waffle Flower Flora Cat Play stamp set.

If you’re a cat lover, this stamp set must be in your collection. It’s a beautiful stamp set. Waffle Flower always has such adorable designs. This card is very simple with 3 stamped images (the cat, the butterfly, and the sentiment) with black pigment ink. I chose pigment ink because I wanted to watercolor the flowers, balloons, and butterfly. The “life is boring when you are not around” is so cute! I added a little bit of shimmer to the card with a Wink of Stella pen.

If you haven’t tried a Wink of Stella brush pen, you must try it! It is the perfect way to add a little bit of sparkle to any project. The patterned paper I used on this card is from Fancy Pants Designs. It’s the Family & Co.collection. I’ve been using this collection a lot lately. Its so fun to play with and so versatile. Did you see the other pet card I created with this collection? You can find it HERE. This Latest & Greatest: Stamping workshop featuring Waffle Flower stamps will also be taught at our upcoming show in Schaumburg. We would love to see you there!

Latest & Greatest: Stamping with Fancy Pants Designs


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

Our next show is in Edison, NJ on August 11th-12th. Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with products from our Stamping workshop: Fancy Pants DesignsFamily & Co. collection.

I just love that Fancy Pants Designs includes stamps that coordinate with their adorable paper collections. If you take the class, you will receive a sampling of items from the collection perfect for stamping and card making, including the 4×4 Stamp Set, the 6×6 Paper Pad, and the Tags pack:


With these products, I created this card:


I stamped the house stamp from the 4×4 Stamp Set on cardstock and patterned papers from the 6×6 Paper Pad using black ink.


I hand cut shapes from each of the stamped images and pieced  the images together to create a colorful house.


I finished by adding the paper-pieced house on a tag from the Tags pack, stamped a sentiment from the 4×4 Stamp Set onto another tag, and layered the tags on the center of a 3 3/4″ square mini card to finish.


Such a cute, cute collection, don’t you think?!

This Latest & Greatest: Stamping workshop featuring Fancy Pants Designs’ Family & Co. collection will also be taught at our upcoming show in Schaumburg. We would love to see you there!

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

Latest & Greatest Stamping with Fancy Pants AND The Stamps of Life

Latest & Greatest Stamping with Fancy Pants AND The Stamps of Life by @jbckadams for @scrapbookexpo #SSBE2017 #Stamping #cardmaking #beckiadams

Hey there Stamp & Scrapbook Expo friends and fans, Becki here, for another edition of Inspiration Station. I’m happy that you found your way to the Weekly Scrapper blog. The project I have to share with you today is using products from our Latest & Greatest Stamping workshop. These are products that workshop attendees will receive in the Latest & Greatest Stamping workshop at a few of our shows this Summer. Today, I’m working with a stamp/die set from Stephanie Barnard and the Stamps of Life AND patterned papers/embellishments from the Fancy Pants Family & Co. collection . Usually, I’m not a stamper. But recently, I’ve had a lot of fun working on a few stamping projects. When I first received this cute puppy stamp/die set, I knew that I had to make a card (or several cards) with it. After I stamped and colored the puppy image, I knew that it would go perfectly with the papers in the 6×6 paper pad from the Family & Co. collection. My preferred method of coloring stamped images is with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and a water brush. These markers come in a vast array of colors. I have a couple sets of markers in my stash and many more on my wish list. The sentiment for this card is stamped on a striped tag from the Family & Co. collection. Then, I adhered the stamped puppy to the bottom of the tag and adhered the tag/puppy cluster to layers of patterned papers to create the front of the card. The finishing touch on this card is a few sprinkles of navy shimmer ink. In my opinion a few sprinkles of ink is the perfect finishing touch to a LOT of projects.This card turned out so much better than I imagined. Watch for more projects using this stamp and die set from me. I already have a few more stamped images on my desk waiting to be colored. Thank you for stopping by for another edition of Inspiration Station. Make sure you sign up for Latest & Greatest workshops at a Stamp & Scrapbook Expo near you! You’ll LOVE these workshops!
