Rinea Tutorial - Thanksgiving Place Card

Hello, my friends!

Today I have a fun tutorial for Rinea.

I'm going to show you how to make this fun project
using these fabulous foiled papers,
in partnership with Joy Clair Stamps!

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, 
in less than a month here in Canada,
I thought I would share a fun place card idea.
These cards would be lovely decorating the table.
There is a spot left right above the "Thankful" to add a name.
This could easily be done with a marker.

Here's how I did it:

Materials Used:
Joy Clair Stamp - Thankful and Blessed;
Imagine Crafts - StazOn Ink - Piano Black;
Stamp Positioning Took;
Tiny Scissors.

1. I began by doing all my stamping on a variety of foiled papers. I did some extra stamping while I was at it - for future projects.  

2. Using my tiny scissors, I fussy cut the sunflower images out. One flower from Gold/Gold Starstruck Foiled Paper, one flower from Copper/Copper Starstruck Foiled Paper, one stem from Emerald/Emerald Starstruck Foiled Paper, and one flower center from Mocha/Mocha Starstruck Foiled Paper

3. Then I cut a piece of the Mocha/Mocha Starstruck Foiled Paper measuring 4 x 5, and a piece of the Copper/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper measuring 3 3/4 x 4 3/4. 
4. I scored down the center of each piece.
5. Using the StazOn ink, and a stamp positioning tool, I stamped the sentiments on each side of the Copper/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.
6. I adhered these two layers together, lining up the score line.

7. I adhered the sunflower in place on the one side of the place card. First the copper flower, then I added the gold flower with a little piece of foam tape. I added the stem, tucking it under the copper flower, with a little piece of foam tape behind the leaf. Finally, I added the flower center.

8. I fluffed up the flower petals to give it some extra dimension.

Here's the stamping on the other side:

 It's the perfect Scripture verse for a Thanksgiving Place Card!
Then you can send the card home with your guest,
as a reminder to always be Thankful! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I'll be back again soon with a new Rinea project!

My Scrap Chick - Movie Night?

Hello, my friends!

Welcome to a new DT post for My Scrap Chick!

Today I'm featuring the fun:

Popcorn Box, and the

Film Strip Frames.

This time of year is such a good time to have a Movie Night Party, isn't it?
The kids are back at school and reconnecting with friends.
Here it's been rainy and cool, and it gets dark much earlier.
Why not have some friends in for some popcorn and a movie?

I used the Film Strip Frames as an invitation.
I just added some fun stamping with a celebration theme.
There's always something to celebrate, right? 

Here's the fun set together:

I found this really fun popcorn paper in my stash.
It was thin, so I doubled it up with white cardstock.

It's a nice individual size.
The file includes a variety of printable labels and tickets.

I used some Simon Says Stamp stamps for my invitation.
There are so many fun creative possibilities with this.
You could incorporate a particular movie, or a special theme.
I opted to stick with black and white.

It's just a fun set that works really well together!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'll be back soon with another fun project share!

Happy Little Stampers - ATC Challenge - Ocean/Sea

Hello, my friends!
It's new Challenge time at Happy Little Stampers ATC Challenge.
The September Challenge is:

Here is my ATC:

I used a collage sheet from Gecko Galz called Summer Seas,
which you can find right HERE.
I added it to my ATC base, and then I added the "SEA" from the title using foam tape.

I then added a bead of glue all around the edge,
and sprinkled it with my most sand-like glitter.
Of course it added some fun sparkle!

Finally, I added some of the smallest seashells from my massive collection.

That's all there was to it!
Thanks so much for stopping in to take a look!

ScraPerfect - September Calendar Page with some Twistoon Fun

Hello, my friends!

Today I'm happy to be sharing another post for ScraPerfect

I'm going to show you how I used products from ScraPerfect 
to decorate my September Calendar page. 

First, take a look at my page:

Isn't that fun? Of course I used the Best Glue Ever to put everything together. 
However, the  Best Glue Ever, along with the No-Clog Writing Cap
were just what I needed to help me make easy embellishments for my page. 
When I looked at the fun background paper, 
I noticed the fun little glasses. 
I just happened to have some matching wood glasses in my stash. 

I added a nice layer of glue to each of the glasses...

...and sprinkled each one with a different color of glitter.
Then I set them aside to dry.
Of course I used my Perfect Cleaning Cloth 
to clean up any stray glitter that was left lying around.

The Best Glue Ever grabs the glitter so well that there's no glitter falling off.

The glue doesn't interfere with the pretty sparkle either.

The super fun image is a new Twistoon Digi Stamp called Back to School
You can find it HERE.
I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Markers.
Here's a closer look:

The papers are some from Prima School Memories Digital Collection

One last look:

Artsystamper - Hello Sweet Friend!

Hello, my friends!

It's time for a new Artsystamper post!
Today I am actually sharing two projects.
I've created a card and a bookmark.
These projects coordinate, and would make a lovely set!
Add a book and you'd have a wonderful gift set!
They were created using:

Fruit Stand Digital Stamp Set and

Fruit Stand Paper Pack and Tall Tags.

Here they are together:

Let's start with the card:

I began with a white cardstock card base.
Then added one of the digital papers for the background.
I then went into the files and added the "Hello Sweet Friend" sentiment to the sign board.
I chose all the flowers I wanted, in the sizes I wanted,
and then printed everything out.

Then I cut everything out.
I inked all the edges, curled the flower petals,
and layered them in place using foam tape.
Finally, I added some Gold Liquid Pearls to the center of the flowers.

Now for the bookmark:

I recently purchased a Laminator, 
so I've got my eyes open for ways to use it.
The fun in buying new toys is finding ways to use them, right?

I printed the Tall Tag out, and cut it out.

I printed out another piece of the same paper that I used on the card.
I traced around the tag, and cut it out.
I adhered the two pieces together, and punched the hole out.
Then I ran it through my Laminator.
It did a fabulous job!
I added a ribbon to the top of the tag.
Now the tall tag is a long lasting bookmark! 

I think the "Hand Picked For You" 
is a great sentiment for a bookmark
if it's included with a gift of a book, don't you? 

Isn't that a pretty set?

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
I hope you find these images as inspiring as I do!
I look forward to sharing more with you!
