You should have heard the squeals when I showed this card at Erica’s stamping party last month! Needless to say, the Owl Builder Punch is the cutest punch EVER (see it online).
Have you seen MDS2 yet? I posted a bit about it last week, including the different options available, whether you have MDS yet or not, etc. Last Wednesday was my August Laptops & Lattes class, and we made a quick card using MDS2.
The card features a few of the new things that MDS2 can do:
- There’s a new Splatter Brush tool that adds fun texture to your projects
- The new Supply List tool helps you know what you used on every project.
- You can now COLOR your STAMPS! Add as many colors as you want — it’s super-easy. I added a few colors to the “wish big” stamp on my card below.
Here’s another project idea — a quick and simple one. A great feature of 2-step stamp sets is that they make for quick projects. These sets are an outline stamp and a background stamp image all in one set. The coloring is done for you with the 2nd stamp!
And I don’t know about you, but I definitely think CHOCOLATE is a “reason to smile”
The quick tag on this project was finished by adding the Happy Birthday greeting from Bring On The Cake (see it online).
Looking for other projects with candy?? I LOVE using candy with my stamping treats! Here are a ton of ideas on my blog.
Should we be allowed to have this much fun crafting?! My Stamp Club for tonight asked to make a project with the Designer Rosette Die (see it online) and I came up with a fun birthday tag that features the Make A Cake stamp set (see it online) and the matching Patio Party Designer Series Paper (see it online).
Originally my hand wasn’t in the photo, but they you couldn’t tell how big this fun rosette is! The finished Rosette here is about 7″ across.
Project Tips: For best results, cut the Designer Rosette strip from a 5″ wide piece of card stock (I used 5 x 11″ of Summer Starfruit card stock here). After cutting the strip, cut it in half longways to make two strips. The two strips go together length-wise to make a full rosette. It’s much easier to get the rosettes straight if you die-cut first, then cut the strip into two. To get the scalloped or zig-zag edge, cut two 5″ strips and use 1/2 from each one.
To make the Rosette: Fan fold the die cut strip, then use Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Green Lid Glue) to adhere the last folds together to make a tube. Be sure to overlap the last creases for best strength. When the glue is dry, gently press down on the inside edge of the tube to make the rosette lie flat. Adhere to die cut tagboard scallop circle with Green Lid Glue & hold until set. Add decorative front pieces after the rosette is set.
Don’t forget that you can get these fun supplies for FREE from the Patio Party Product Suite (see it online) as part of the special for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who join my stamping family in June! (learn more)
