Simple DIY Stamping Tool


Hey All!

Today I want to share with you this quick stamping tool I whipped up in under 10 minutes!
What does this tool do you may ask? Well, it allows you to stamp an image multiple times in the exact same spot, just in case the ink didn't go on dark enough or crisp enough that first time!


I have wanted to get myself the MISTI tool for the longest time. But, with the plummeting Canadian Dollar and the outrageous shipping costs I thought I would hold off for now.  In the mean time the DIYer in me decided to make something that could get me started. For the amount of stamping I do this is perfect for me and it is for my own personal use! So with supplies I had around the house I made my self this really Simple DIY Stamping Tool.

I have put together a video tutorial for those that would like to make something similar :)


Here are the supplies I used in case you missed it in the video:
CD case
grid paper
page protector or/laminator
craft fun foam
adhesive
pliers
scissors
paper slicer

Hope this has inspired you to try stamping and maybe even create you own little stamping tool!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

Personalized Teacher Tumblers | SVGCuts

Are you ready for school to be over?
I know I am and so are my kids, but I can almost bet the teachers are even more excited!

Today I want to share with you the year-end treats I made for these great teachers. These personalized teacher tumblers were super easy and quick to put together. This was the first time I layered vinyl on a project and I love how simple it was to do.

SVGCuts files,Gift,#SVGCuts,Silhouette Cameo,Personalized Teacher Tumblers,teacher gifts for Year End,I love doing all things crafty,layered vinyl,vinyl,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

To make your own here is what you will need:

  1. Tumblers
  2. Black, green, red, white, gold vinyl sheets (Oracal 651)
  3. Transfer tape
  4. SVG Files from Miss Baker's Classroom SVG Kit and  Miss Karen's Back to School Bags SVG Kit
  5. Font: Bernard MT Condensed
  6. Silhouette Cameo / Electronic Cutting Machine


The only alteration I made to create this project, was to add the teacher's name to the red layer of the apple. By doing that when you cut it out, the name is already cut out of that layer. This will save you from worrying about getting perfectly straight letters! The rest was layering the pieces of vinyl onto each other. Begin with the black layer of the apple, followed by the red, green leaf, gold worm, white eyes, and then the black again for the eyes and glasses. The tricky part is aligning the layers, so make sure you have great lighting to see through the transfer paper. Also, use a straight edge (credit card/ruler) to press out the air bubbles as you add each layer.


Hope this has inspired anyone still looking for that quick last-minute teacher gift. If you have any questions, I would love to hear from you!

Freakin' Awesome Snarky Stamps 3X3 Cards


Hi Guys!

Today I want to share some really fun quick 3x3 cards I made using a couple of Snarky Stamp Sets created exclusively for Paper Issues. I have had these for a while now and have been dying to try them out! Check out the Snarky Stamps sets below...  the stuff you can come up with is endless! 



Anyways, I made these 5 piece sets for some colleagues of mine at work. I'm sure they will get a kick out of them as they are not your typical greeting card quotes!

Hoping that no one takes offense to them as they are meant for laughs!


Here are a few close ups of each card.




Here is a pic of the back of the card. I have had this Justrite wood block stamp for years and am just starting to use it now... I'm such a craft hoarder! Yup, freakin' rights, LOL! ;)


Hope this has inspired you to be real and create your own Snarky Cards, just remember they aren't meant for everyone, and hope you liked them anyways ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
