Tuesday Tip - Limited Supply Challenge Joyful Seasons

DSCN5741Hi Everyone! This Tuesday Tip is all about mixing and matching your supplies to create different looks. While yes, you can duplicate verbatim a card, what I like to do is challenge myself to use ALL the images in a stamp set using the same color combination. Here I used the stamp set Joyful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp set. It's a 2-step stamp set meaning you layer different images to create the look.

DSCN5736Dig into to accessory and tool stash to die cut shapes, punch and layer the sentiments, emboss and more!

I also stamped the inside of each of the cards. I made a female cardinal by stamping the bird with Soft Suede then added a red breast with a sponge daubler.

DSCN5742Here's the other insides:

Hopefully, this inspires you to stamp with your supplies on hand to create and USE UP! items in your stash.

Here's the items I used for today's Tuesday Tip!

Tuesday Tip - Oh What Fun Tag Kit

Oh What Fun KitHi Everyone! This week's Tuesday Tip is about the Oh What Fun Tag Kit. OMGoodness...you make 30 tags! with this kit. So my tip is this is a kit that can be used in a variety of ways! You'll really get your bag for your buck with this kit. Shown above with the coordinating stamp set Oh What Fun. Use the tags for:

  • Gift tags
  •     on gift boxes, baked goods, wine bottles (hostess gift for the holidays),stocking stuffers, Secret Santa gifts, etc...
  • Card embellishments (add to card front and done!) Talk about a quick way to make 30 cards!
  • Scrapbook and Project Life page elements.
  • Change up the stamp set and you could use for multiple occasions!
  • A gift in of itself!

TIP! it coordinates wonderfully with the Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Hello December 2015 Project Life Card Collection.

DSCN5721Ideas to use together:

  • Use the Envelope, Gift Box, or Gift Bag Punch Boards to create custom packaging.
  • Cards.
  • Scrapbook or Project Life Pages
  •     Gift a ready for photos Holiday Album!
  • Wine bottle tags

I assembled the kit in about an hour. Since all the elements are already die cut, it's just a matter of stamping the sentiments and gluing together. Love, love this kit!

Another Tip! This is a perfect kit to share. (30 tags!) I'm thinking about getting another kit or 2 in and making it our Thanksgiving project. Mom and the sisters would love going home with a handful of tags they made. Or make a kit for someone as a gift - my grandmas would have LOVED to have gotten a stack of these tags to add to homemade cookies or on the outside of her gift card envelopes.

I hope you can see why I choose this for the Tuesday Tip - one kit goes a long way as it can be incorporated throughout the season and for your memory keeping!

Must Have Mondays & Tuesday Tips- Among the Branches Photopolyer Bundle

  Among The BranchesHi Everyone! I'm starting a new Monday theme called Must Have Mondays! Followed up by Tuesday Tips!  These are products that have that little extra something. Maybe it's extra value, extra functionality, extra WOW factor etc...!

Our home laptops have been having issues for WEEKS! First mine then Jeff's. Yesterday, we FINALLY got one replaced. YIPPEE that means I can finally steady post again. So I know it's Tuesday, but I wanted to share the Must Have Monday item too! LOL

Above are my October In-Person Card Class samples. It uses each of the season images! Perfect for this time of year of course!  And it also features this week's Tuesday Tips! more on that later. Below are each of the cards up close.

Among The Branches Photopolymer Bundle is this week's Must Have Mondays spotlight. Three words:

ARE YOU SERIOUS? Love the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder and the images in Among the Branches are made specifically to work with the folder.

First is Autumn Wishes sentiment- to get this look, take your Sponge Dauber and apply ink directly onto the embossing folder. Insert your card stock and emboss through the Big Shot. This will give you the background color and the trees will pop forward. Then I took the stamps and stamped images on top of the embossed cardstock. (Tip! - I used fall leaf colors here - but using all green leaves clustered on a branch would give you a spring look!)

Autum Wishes Among the BranchesNext is the Spooky sentiment for Halloween! This time, emboss your Basic Black Cardstock, then take the Sponge Dauber using Whisper White Craft Ink and highlight the tree trunks and branches.

Spooky Amoung the BranchesAnd I did the same - inking after embossing to the Making Spirits Bright Sentiment. Soft Sky Classic ink used. Also stamped the snowflakes in the background after embossing.

Making Spirits Bright Amoung the Branches

Now for our TUESDAY TIP! Fine Tip Glue Pen - OMGoodness! A pin drop of glue. Great for intricate die cut shapes like the Butterfly Thinlits or Delicate Ornaments Dies. Or like I've used here - to add small areas of Stampin' Glitter! Below you will notice the centers of the snowflakes sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. So tiny! but with the Fine Tip Glue Pen you can achieve the look. 

TIP! - squeeze EVER SO GENTLY. A light touch is all you need. You'll notice on the Autumn card - a got a few blobs! I like it but that's what happened when I squeezed too much. Also - make sure to store and work with it upright.

Fine Tip Glue PenI did use the Fine Tip Glue Pen and either Dazzling Diamonds or Gold Stampin' Glitter on each card.
 

My opinion - the Must Have Mondays' Among the Branches is one of those versital bundles that covers several holidays and seasons PLUS the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder is..well timeless! Great Value.
