DIY Frame Stencil For Border Stamps (featuring Winnie & Walter)

I like border stamps, how about you? :)

I love border stamps and have quite a few but I wanted to be able to do more than just stamping them across a page.  I wanted to be able to create a frame around the card with nice mitered edges like a picture frame.  The Holiday Trimmings set from Winnie & Walter is a wonderful set with a candy cane stripe that was perfect for what I wanted to do. I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder over Gina K. Designs Cherry Red ink to give the card some shine.  It almost looks edible.

To achieve the frame I created my own stencil by cutting a 6" x 6" piece of plastic from one of my large stamp storage pouches that I use.  There is a supplies list below for your reference.  I started with a piece of acetate that was 10 mil thick.  That was too thick and the edges would not stamp completely which led me to the stamp pouches which worked perfectly.  I simply took the 6" square plastic and cut it in half on the diagonal and then flipped one of the pieces and lined them up so as to create a triangle opening to stamp in.   Because they are plastic they are washable and reusable.  This would work with any size square as long as your stamp fits.  It is also important to make sure that your card is as close to the exact size of the stencil as possible.



I love how the clear embossing
powder over the red looks.

My Monthly Hero April 2018 featuring One Die 9 Ways

As of this writing this kit is still available at www.heroarts.com while supplies last so if you would like the set hurry on over to purchase.
Have you ever needed a bunch of cards quickly?  I find in those situations a good cover die can go a long way.  There was a wonderful bonus in the April 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit, a full size cover die!  And this one is really special.  I created several sets of cards and a few singles--31 in total--in one day thanks to this timesaver, and I thought I would share them with you just in case you are ever in need of some quick cards for a gift or charity, to sell or just send out individually.  There are 9 different ways I used the die in total.  Most of these cards won't be decorated or have a sentiment yet.  That way I can customize them later, when I need them.

The products used in today's cards were minimal.  I used the kit, which included a huge, adorable stamp set; coordinating dies for many of the images; the aforementioned cover die…

Easy Ink Blending featuring Leaf Burst Stencil - AECP Level 1

Had some fun ink blending with a stencil today and such a pretty one at that.  This card was inspired by the Easy Ink Blending Techniques class at Altenew Academy.  It was a great class, check it out if you want to learn some new tips and tricks :)  Several techniques are discussed, from creating your own matching card stock to faux watercoloring. Here is a quick video of the process I describe below.  I was able to create this card using the Leaf Burst Stencil from Altenew.  I blended Wild Honey Distress Ink in the center and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on the outer leaves.  To take it up a notch, I turned the stencil (so that the tall leaves overlapped the short leaves) and blended the Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink onto the page.  I was careful to use sticky notes on the open areas around the square so I had this pretty pattern only on the page.
I created a matching pink border by inking the edge of a 6" square piece of white card stock with the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.…

Invisible Easel Card featuring EllenHutson.com's Mondo Sakura Stamps and Dies

I am in love with Cherry Blossoms!  They are so fun to color that whenever I see a Cherry Blossom stamp, I simply have to have it.  The new Mondo Sakura (Cherry Blossom in Japanese) and coordinating die from Ellen Hutson are no exception.  This set has another quality I love in my flower stamps:  they are HUGE!!!!!  Having all that space to color is just dreamy.  At first glance this card may seem complicated to create but I am here to dispel that myth. 
To create this card, you will need 2 sheet of 5" x 6" Hero Arts Acetate (one cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and one folded on one side at 1 1/4” inch on the 6” side);  2 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" 110 lb white card stock (one cut with the cover die of your choice, and one folded in half and cut with the 3rd largest die from the Infinity Tag Frames Die set by Hero Arts [so you have 2 tags]); and 2 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Bristol Smooth card stock (to stamp and emboss the Mondo Sakura on).  I will colo…
