Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I have such a fun little card to share featuring a cute little stamp set from Picket Fence Studios and coordinating dies. I also used some of my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products and Ranger inks. I started by creating a simple blended background for my card using white cardstock, a Ranger blending tool & mat, and Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks. I was going for a moody sunset kind of backdrop. To add a slightly distressed border I stamped the Ranger Tim Holtz Early Espresso Distress Oxide ink onto my mat, misted it with water, and then drug the edges of the blended background through it. Let dry. This is also when I stamped the card sentiment in the bottom left-hand corner of the card using Ranger Archival ink. I stamped the super cute…

Hello everyone! Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Blog! I’ve been looking at stamps differently lately. I like to see if there are ways that I can deconstruct the different design elements so that I can cut it apart and create layers.  The Beauty and Song stamp by Picket Fence Studios is a stamp that has a lot of opportunities to go a bit crazy with layers. Here’s how I put this one together.  Step 1. Stamp the image on cardstock and use the Brother ScanNCut to precisely cut the stamped image from the cardstock. TIP: This stamp has some open ends. The Brother ScanNCut scans the outside edge and requires a black edge.  The opened-ended leaves on this stamp needed to be closed in. The Brother ScanNCut did an amazing job of cutting out this complex stamp. I was suitably impressed with how it cut perfectly…

A BIG hello from Kim! Just popping in to share a quick look at some inky fun I was having, that will get added to a card base to send off to a friend! I recently got this new Picket Fence stamp set: Beauty & Song . I love all the details and look forward to using it lots more. It’s a big stamp, so you could easily use the entire image of parts of it. For this project, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of computer paper, cut around it and added some repositional adhesive to the back. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L makes a great adhesive with the perfect amount of tack, that is easily removed when needed. I positioned the sentiment to mask the area where it would eventually be permanently stamped. I stamped my main image over the mask using a stamp positioner. Using my Life…

Art  Impressions stamps capture real life for so many women. The confident ladies strutting their stuff in the Girlfriends Make the Best Accessories stamp reminds me of me and my friends when we go for lunch. I wanted to make the ladies a bit glitzy so I used the paper piecing technique on their sunglasses and purses. A little glitter goes a long way! I also tried something different for me, I applied Ranger Tim Holtz Oxide inks onto foiled Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Foil-Mates paper. It turned out really well. The inked and foiled background looks like a Vegas night sky. Here’s how I created this look: 1. Stamp the Art Impressions Girlfriend stamp on watercolor paper and fussy-cut the ladies. 2. Stamp the Ranger Oxide Inks on a non-porous surface and add water, using a paintbrush paint your stamped image 3. Stamp the image a second…

I have made 2020 the year that I take the planner plunge. I have two planners going at the moment; one for every day and a Vacation scrapbook-planner for an upcoming trip. For my vacation planner,  I’m using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Champaign colored album with the powder blue inside. I like the pop of blue on the inside! I have a confession to make. After only a few weeks of creating planner pages… I’m totally addicted! I am loving the challenge of figuring out how many different ways I can use the dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essential line. There are pages, tags and many embellishment dies to choose from. You can create planner pages and tags out of a lot of different materials. I came home recently with this fabulous paper shopping bag: I knew the minute I saw it that I had to reuse the map…
