Stamp of the Month Fun

Stamp of the Month Fun!

Using both the Stamp of the Month S1810 Thanks and Giving and the paper collection, Grateful Heart, this card came together well.

I love the little leaves peaking out through the circles.  Use 3D foam tape to pop up the panel with the circles so you can get some great depth under the branches.

Use a spray pen with some sapphire reinker and water/alcohol mixed together to get the spray pattern.  It’s a wonderful thing to be able to create your own colors of spray to match whatever project you are working on.  Creating fun looks is really easy to do.  A word of caution.  Make sure to have the floor/area protected so clean up is easy!

The set is $18.95 or $5.00 with a qualifying purchase of $50.00.  When you do this, you’ll get the Kit of the Month for free!  Comes to you all pre-cut and ready to stamp along with Happy Mail and your choice of directions to several workshop.  You can have a lot of fun with this kit.

Disaster Relief Stamp Set

Disaster Relief Stamp Set: Stronger Together

Friday, September 8, 2017

As previously announced, we have prepared a stamp set designed specifically to benefit those affected by disasters, such as the recent hurricanes in the United States and the wildfires throughout the US and Canada. The stamp set is titled Stronger Together and features a variety of sentiments that can be used for comfort, encouragement, and more.

This C-size set is available for purchase starting today; find it on your Consultant website using item number C1716. In order to be able to support multiple needs, we have determined that proceeds from the sale of this set will be donated to the Red Cross, which provides relief efforts to multiple disasters, and which will allocate the funds to where they are needed most. In order to maximize the donation amount, this set will be non-commissionable. This way all proceeds—including the amount that would normally go toward paying commissions—will be donated to the Red Cross.

We believe in the good that comes when we work together as a community. As the stamp set name states, we truly are stronger together. Share this set with your customers and followers as a way of coming together and strengthening those who need some extra help in the wake of devastation.

Love the Little Moments

Love the Little Moments

Here’s a card with the Stamp of the Month S1705 Live Love Laugh.  This one is done by a guest artist Jennifer P from my swap group.  This shows how you can color the card and have it look great for those who are not color-ers.   “Love” can be such a useful word when pair with different sentiments.  This sentiment is from the Cricut Cartridge Flower Market Collection and one of my favorite stamp sets.

Because the stamp set words are so large, it takes up most of the space on the card.  Simple is best.   The sentiments from Flower Market has these simple sayings that are done with a combination of 2 fonts, which I really like.  I don’t know if you can really see it for the picture from Flower Market. It’s the top set in the upper left corner.

See how perfect the sentiment goes with “love”.  It’s great to mix and match different stamp sets you have.

Heads up about Stamps and their availability

WOW…there are some big changes coming with My Acrlix Stampsavailability. Please read this carefully.

15-ai-enjoy-the-little-things-stamp

We are simplifying the rules regulating the availability of our My Acrylix® stamp sets to make it easier for you to know which stamp sets are currently available. Presently, we have policies in place that make all stamp sets available for a full year from the time they are first introduced. These policies also make stamp sets that are compatible with a Cricut® collection available indefinitely. The stamp sets that are available are growing in size and we see the need to change this.

14-ai-my-acrylix

Consequently, we are transitioning to a new policy regulating stamp sales: Stamp sets will only be available when they are pictured in an active idea book. Under this policy, stamp sets featured in the Annual Inspirations idea book will remain available for the year-long duration of that idea book, while stamp sets featured in seasonal idea books will retire when the seasonal idea book retires, like the other items featured in these idea books.

15-ai-magic-stamp

This policy will include stamp sets with Cricut®-compatible images. When we first introduced our Cricut® collections and their compatible stamp sets, it made sense to keep these stamp sets available in order to create a more robust collection of stamp sets with compatible images. With a larger number of Cricut®-compatible stamp sets in each idea book, it makes sense to allow the older sets to retire and to focus on the newer stamp sets.

This new strategy for our My Acrylix stamp sets will go into effect immediately, meaning that stamp sets featured in Seasonal Expressions 1 will be retired at the end of that idea book on April 30, 2016. Stamp sets featured in Annual Inspirations 2015–2016 and any other stamp sets that are currently available but are not pictured in any active idea books will be retired on July 31, 2016, with a few exceptions. The exceptions are the States & Provinces stamp sets, the Australia & New Zealand stamp sets, and a handful of other stamp sets that will be carrying forward to a future idea book.

Make your list and check it twice as then stamp availability has been changed.  Don’t miss out on those super cute stamps in the Seasonal Expressions 1 with their thin cut dies to match!!  Don’t miss out on my Customer Cruising Special!  Check it out here:

Always Be

“Always Be” came to be after I got these great dies from Simon Says Stamp which make the shape look like it’s stitched!  Gotta love it!  I got three sets of shapes along with this stencil.  I was looking at it and got inspired from the stencil and a tutorial from Stamp Nation about using textured paste!  I think they had a different name for it, like embossing paste.  Any whoo..

I created this sweet card with a Lili of the Valley stamp (the girl) and Close To My Heart D1627 Your own Kind of Wonderful.    I used Ranger Textured Paste, a stencil, and a palette knife to create the background.

You put the stencil down over the area you want to cover.  Smear the paste on with the palette knife.  Lift the stencil up carefully.  I covered with prisma glitter while it was wet. If you want to see more about this, see Stamp Nation’s tutorial.

Don’t you just love the layers from the Nesting Die?  I got them because of the stitching around the ends that I don’t have to do!!  It makes for an awesome look!!  I used 3 of them to create the layers on this card!  CTMH paper works so well with all your crafting products.  Be sure to try it out!  =)
