Scrapbook.com Collaboration: You Make Me Proud

Scrapbook.com was kind enough to send me some products to try from their exclusive line of stamps, note cards, adhesives and tools.  I have been shopping with them since I first started scrapbooking and I love the huge variety of paper lines they carry.  Now they have their own stamps!  I’m really excited to show you the projects I created and as always, all opinions are my own.

(Affiliate links are used at no cost to you).

For this project, I created an encouragement card using their DIY Coupons set along with a sentiment from You and Me Quotes and Sayings.

IMG_3162

I started off by masking off the edge of one of the Neenah A2 Solar White notecards.  This helps to keep the back of the card clean when I do my stamping.

IMG_3160

Instead of using the coupon stamps as actual coupons, I thought it would be fun to create a background with them and then add an encouraging sentiment over the top.

I chose some bold colors from Lawn Fawn’s ink collection for a bright backdrop.

IMG_3152

Since I would not be using a stamp platform and just free-hand stamping, I placed a pad underneath my card along with some scrap paper, so that when I stamped, it would be easy to get a clear image on the first try.

IMG_3139

After stamping the first image, I placed a little masking tape over the first stamp just at the edge so I could stamp over it to start creating the background.

IMG_3144

I continued adding tape and stamping to create the look of the coupons laying in front of and behind each other.

IMG_3146

IMG_3150

I heat embossed a sentiment from the You and Me Quotes and Sayings stamp set onto some black cardstock using white embossing powder and popped it up over the background with some foam squares.

IMG_3137

I added a couple of the little circle stamps from the coupon set that I punched out with a 1″ paper punch for embellishment.

A bright, cheerful card for the favorite person in your life!

Sending Christmas Cheer

IMG_2991.JPG

I’m so happy to be participating in Papertrey Ink’s monthly blog hop for November.  I love this challenge because you get to create a card inspired by a gorgeous photo they choose.  Here is this month’s inspiration:

{source: goodhousekeeping.com}

I love all the red and white.  I’ve been using that color combo a lot on my cards this month.  That blue ribbon is so pretty too, so I decided to combine all the colors for my card along with a little sprig of green.

I used the peppermint circle from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set and created a masked line of the candies all the way across a white notecard using Pure Poppy ink.  This is really easy to do using a 1 3/4″ punch and some masking paper.  Just stamp, cover the first stamp with the mask, stamp again offsetting the image, remove the mask and cover the second image, stamp, and so on…..

IMG_2993.JPG

IMG_2986

I added the circle tag from Holiday Photo Finishers (an older set) stamped on some Spring Rain cardstock and tucked in some holly from the Spruce & Sprigs set.  Light blue enamel dots helped to continue the blue.

IMG_2988

Those peppermint candies are so festive and the masking keeps this card clean and simple.  Thanks so much for joining me today.  Supplies used on my project are linked below.  Just click on the logo below each product for the shop
