A different way to store Stamps

Are you ready for more storage ideas from the me and the Inspiration Teambecause I really needed this storage solution.  I kept this really simple by simply stamping the Letter It stamps.  The Planner Storage & Organizer is the bomb and combining them even gets better.

I stamped both sides of the mat board cuts by just loading up with ink and simply stamp away.  Down the spine I picked the stamp that fit.  Assemble each of them and attach with your favourite adhesive.  

I wanted to have a flat front so I simply cut a piece to fit. 

I wrote the "Letter it"... need to work my lettering.

Ohhh that is the cutest, holds 6 stamps, the markers, inks, brush and medium pens.  

See how that turned out on the spine.  

Loving this look.

You can store stamps, embossing folders, crayons, markers, stamps, cards, paper, envelops, paper dolls, ephemera, adhesive, die cut storage... I could go on.
Thanks for taking a peek and there's more to see this month from the Inspiration Teamso…

Creating a Background with Sprays and Stamping

The snow is melting and the birds are coming home.  While there may be a couple feet of snow still on the ground a glimpse of spring can be found in this refreshing card.  A quick look how to create your own background.

Inking  the leaf border stamp and filling up the first layer is quick.  I sprayed the second layer with dylusions sprays and used a sponge to ink through the matching stencil.

Apply ink again to the large leaf border and stamp right over top of the stencil to create dimension.  I coloured the butterflies with distress markers and wow do they pop!

What a beautiful background.

I love the layered look of the stenciled leaves and stamping.

Popping up the butterflies.

Hello spring!

Sprays and inks go a long way to creating a stunning background.  Look around at what you have a create your own spring paper.

Why you need to organize your cards

How do you store your cards?  What about when someone sends you a handmade card?  I have just that going on in my crafty space.  I have some cards waiting to find a home and needing a space to be safe until they make it to their new homes.  What about those special handmade cards you receive in the mail.  They need a special space too.
The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team is sharing organization ideas all month long with an array of Eileen's awesome dies. 
Loving the Planner Storage & Organizer XL Die.  I cut mat board and pattern paper for the exterior.  Adding a couple extra cuts for the base, front and back of the box.  This requires a couple easy measurements depending on the size you want.
Before adhering the pattern paper I added a little spray stain for the inside.  Looks so pretty!  Then added all the pattern paper to the exterior.  I used Sookwang to add the paper.  Finish up with your embellishments.

Oh ya pretty card storing.

I even lined the box with this sturdy jute.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.
