Creating backgrounds with small stamps from THE STAMP DOCTOR

Image
He everyone! I am back again this week to share another card using the stamp set Coffee Sayings 1 from THE STAMP DOCTOR.  This week I will be showing you how to create a fun background using one of the smaller stamps in the set. 

So to begin, I found several supplies that had sort of a coffee color I didn't end up using all the supplies, but it was a good start. 


I cut down a small piece of white paper and used an acrylic block to stamp the coffee label all over the cardstock. I then added some washi tape to create interest.


Using the coordinating die cut, I cut out a coffee cup with some designer paper and again on white cardstock. I fussy cut the top for the lid and adhered it to my cup.


I then matted it onto some kraft cardstock so that it would not get lost in the background.


This set is currently on sale, so be sure to check it out over at the shop. Coupon Code Taylormadecards4u gets you 10% off.

THE STAMP DOCTOR - Doggone it!

Image
Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a really cute birthday card that I created using the stamp set "Doggone Dog Stamps" and matching dies from THE STAMP DOCTOR.

My original idea was to create somewhat of a postale theme using this set and I had the perfect washi tape for that. 



This set has some really cute sentiments and the dog is just adorable. I love these thin dies as they are so easy to use and store with my sets. I also love how they work perfectly with my Sidekick.

So to begin, I stamped my images on some heavy white cardstock. I used black jet archival ink as I was planning on doing some copic coloring.  



Then I colored my images using some copic markers.

using the coordinating die set, I cut out my images using my sidekick. These little dies are so convenient and work perfectly in the sidekick.

To create my background, I covered some white cardstock with faded jeans distress oxides and my blending tool. Then I spritzed my paper with some water and dabbed it with a paper towe…

March Tonic Kit - Sweet Sentiments

Image
Hello everyone! This month was my first month receiving the subscription kit from Tonic Studios. I typically do not join monthly subscriptions mainly because I don't want to pay for something I don't want.

But I have to say, I was very happy with the kit this month. It was called Sweet Sentiments and the name fit the theme for sure.

I have an unboxing video for you below along with 6 cards that I created using my supplies in the kit. 





This month's set had some great sentiments dies and some sentiments stamps that coordinate beautifully with the dies. 


The dies work to create stand alone sentiments which you can add onto your card or you can cut them directly into your top panel  and add additional layering like I did with the Just Because card. 



I also shared a technique using the new glue pen and some deco foil to create the grungy background on my dream big card. I just love this technique and it creates a great background.

Thanks for stopping by!
