Did you ever get one of those timeless stamps that you know that you can use in a million projects? I may have just “a few”. Recently I took out this amazing heart stamp from Impression Obsession  (Wavy Line Heart) and I have been creating and creating and creating with it AND guess what, it is still on my desk because this stamp is simply not done with me yet. So far I have created 4 projects with it, 2 cards, a scrapbook page, and an altered piece of cardstock that I have not used in an actual project yet because I love it so much. I just don’t want to cut it up or put anything on it, yet, lol. I simply love it just like it is. The “I LOVE US” card was my husband’s valentine’s card. Brian actually gets offended if I buy a commercially built card…

Oh my – oh my – oh my! Hold the phone!  I am IN LOVE with SEVERAL (if not all – giggle giggle) of the new releases from Impression Obsession – CLICK HERE to see them all – I will give you a minute or two 🙂 So many different designs to play with.  The question is where does one start?!?!? LOLOL  Well they have the answer. A 2-DAY blog hop with their design team members creating and designing with their latest releases. The inspiration you will find here will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF! It was super hard for me to pick a product and project to feature here in my blog post….. this post could be a mile long! Here is one of many cards, that stopped me in my tracks designed by Dina Kowal. STUNNING! Dina designed this card using the Impression Obsession Lotus Flower 3 stamp.  Aswell…

Kim here for a quick share today! Are you ever in need of a “quick” one layer card to drop in the mail? I often need to make a card on the fly, here’s one way to do just that. Using three colours of Ranger Distress Oxide and Creative Scrapbooker’s Super Stock, I created a gradient of colour. I inked these colours over a circle mask, adhered with Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L reposition-able tape [ the GREEN one ]. Next, grab a stencil and use a baby wipe to “lift” off the Distress Oxide Ink, this adds a little extra visual texture to your card. I dug into my Magenta stash to find this leafy stem stamp. To give it a silhouette vibe, I stamped using Ranger’s Archival black ink. I like to work on a single piece of cardstock and then adhere to a card base with a permanent…

Hello everyone, Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I am so excited to share with you my blog post for February. It involves a gorgeous Hydrangea stamp along with a few other stamps and dies from the amazing Heartfelt Creations. This amazing company constantly creates stamps and dies to inspire.  Of course, I broke out my pigment inks and I now have a totally awesome collection of Tsukineko’s, StazOn, Pigment ink. If you are like me … and love to incorporate window plastic or transparencies to your projects, this ink will blow your ‘”stamping on window plastic” mind :). I will also share with you a delightful little cleaner that will clean this “relatively, new ink” off of your rubber stamps and your clear stamps and “nourish your stamps” at the same time. Let’s check it out! Using the “StazOn ink” of your dreams, stamp the…

Hello! Kim here, sharing a cute, birthday card I’ve recently made! As I rummaged through my stash of previously made cards, I realized I was getting low on birthday cards! This will be a quick card to make multiples of, to have on hand! For this card, I have used my Art Impression’s Cupcake BFFs stamp. I stamped it to the left side of a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock. My sentiment was stamped separately and cut with a circle punch. I colored the image with my NEW Chameleon Fineliner Pens, I adore them! Like their big sisters, the Chameleon Pens, the Fineliners can provide tonal, colour transitions like magic! Think how beautiful your journals and planners can be! Here, however I have coloured my image using dots and lines – it is such a FUN way to colour smaller images! I’ve added a narrow strip of patterned paper to…

Hi, Connie Nichol here this morning with a couple of projects that recycle sewing patterns.  If you’ve seen the Summer Issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, you’ll know I wrote a whole article on this topic.  Be sure to grab the magazine if you want a whole bunch of other ideas.   Among other things, the patterned tissue paper from old sewing patterns makes a great background for cards and scrapbook layouts. Here’s one of the cards I made.  Quick and simple and I think a perfect masculine birthday card.  Adhere a layer of a recycled sewing pattern to a piece of white cardstock using gel medium.  A gel medium is simply a binder without pigment that comes in various thicknesses, sheens, and transparencies.  I like the Dina Wakely matte gel medium from Ranger.   Just use a sponge brush or paint brush to apply gel medium to the base layer of cardstock…
