the Best things...

Hi everyone! Welcome to Day One of the October release from JustRite Papercraft. Today, the design team is showcasing a fun stamp set called Bokeh Time, and I can tell you that my card was such a joy to create. I started with a watercolored background using Tim Holtz Distress stains, then I randomly added all sizes of circles from the stamp set to the surface using different inks. There are some inspiring sentiments with the set, and I just finished the card with decorative washi tape and a button. ~ Enjoy!

Tutorial Tuesday: Distress Stains


For JustRite Papercraft's Tutorial Tuesday, I show you how to create with Tim Holtz’s Distress Stains. I show you how to use embossing powder as a resist to the stains, direct to stamp techniques and how to achieve a marbled background. The stamps I'm using are a Sneak Peek of their new October release!

For this week's Tutorial Tuesday Giveaway, one lucky winner will win a $30.00 Gift Certificate to their website.

12 Days of a CAS Christmas...

Hi everyone! Today begins The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store 12 Days of a Clean & Simple Christmas, a yearly event that we look forward to with much anticipation. The design team gets to play with all the new products out for this Christmas season – paper, stamps, dies, embossing folders, ribbon and embellishments – and it’s our goal to bring them to you in a clean and simple fashion. After all, who doesn’t LOVE and NEED clean and simple as we prepare for the holidays. 
And, that being said, the styles of the various Design Team members varies greatly, ranging from truly clean and simple to a clean and simple version of typically elaborate work. So be prepared to see a wide range of “clean and simple” throughout these next 12 days. The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store blog will be posting projects both morning and evening to pack in just as much as inspiration as we can.

My Clean and Simple Christmas card utilizes a new die template set from Spellbinders® Paper Arts called Heirloom Reflections and I paired it with Labels Twenty-Eight. ~ Enjoy!
