Stamping with your Dies by Cathie Allan Mediums and tools that multi-task always have a special place in my creative heart. I totally enjoy looking at my creative tools, toys and mediums from various sides to see what I can get them to do for me other than the “intended use” suggested by the manufacturer. For this blog post I decided to play with the “Heart Clasp Die” from Art Impressions. This die makes a lovely wrap for a card but by joining two of these dies I was able to wrap my scrapbook page and then of course wrapped my photo. I then took this die a “stamp step” forward by applying ink to the backside of the die I thus was able to use it as a stamp. Look at that die “go”!! To begin I made the Art Impressions, “Heart Clasp Die” perform as a stamp. Apply…

SUCH A HANDSOME “DEXTER” PUPPY! By Cathie Allan Here is a quick and fun layout using some “timeless stamping tools”.  I kept the steps for this “altered scrapbook layout” simple and fast. After stamping the “Line Background” stamp from Frog’s Whiskers Ink several times on our Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock (my favorite cardstock for my projects) in Clearsnap ColorBox Blackbird, Fluid Chalk ink I added super quick coloring with my Tombow pens. Quess what? I have been stamping a long, long time and my Tombow pens are years old and still are full of ink and ready to go. The capping system is so good on these particular pens that you will get every bit of ink out of them so long as you put the caps back on. I love this! I did not do any “fancy coloring” I just added color. After that I used my Clearsnap ColorBox…

Whoooooo’s Sooooo Cute??!! By Cathie Allan I am so excited to share with you this layout that is a direct result of me working with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine on their “Technique Taster’s Show” that is broadcast by Shaw Television and then becomes part of the “library of web shows” that Creative Scrapbooker Magazine has. SUPPLIES: Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, Clearsnap pigment ink, Art Screen, embossing powder, stylus and white foam tip, Art Impressions stamps and dies, May Arts ribbon, Tombow Dual Brush pens, Sizzix dies, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. My series of shows was a set of 3 different segments that you will get to see in just a few months. For each segment, I created a project where I stepped out some very fun and inky backgrounds that I believe you are going to love. I kept them easy and “colorful” and you will be able to use these…

Hi everyone – Karen Ellis here! My friend Sheri inspired me to play around with Tombow Markers and white embossing powder this week and I wanted to show you the results …. cause I LOVE it! HAHA Here’s what I used: Tombow Markers – Assorted Colours One of my favourite rubber stamp sets (Catherine Scanlon Designs, Art Gone Wild) Perfect Medium Ink (Ranger Industries) or your favourite embossing ink. White embossing powder Watercolour postcard (Strathmore) or other watercolour paper a waterbrush (not pictured) Heat Gun (not pictured) The first thing to do is emboss a stamped image onto the back of the watercolour postcard with your embossing ink and stamp.   Heat to set and get ready to colour!! The embossing acts as a resist to the ink and water.   Go ahead and colour a portion of your stamp with the markers and then, with a wet brush, drag the ink…
