Tart and Tangy Magnets

These are magnets I made out of the Tart and Tangy stamp set. I love this set!

How it's made:
  1. Using the Stampin' Write Markers, colour the Strawberry, Apple and Cherry stamp. I used Real Red and Old Olive.
  2. Huff on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp the image on Whisper White card stock.
  3. Punch the images out using the 1-1/4 Circle Punch.
  4. Punch Real Red and Old Olive circles with the 1-3/8 Circle Punch. These will go behind the image.
  5. Using the Scallop Punch, punch Real Red and Old Olive scallops.
  6. Take your magnet (I got mine from the dollar store) and put a tiny drop of Crystal Effects on it; now adhere it to the scallop.

Let the Crystal Effects dry. This won't take long. Now how easy was that???

Make a Wish

If you missed coming to my class last Tuesday, this is one of the cards we made.

How it's Made:

  1. Cut your textured River Rock card stock to 5-1/2 x 4-1/4, fold in half. This is the base of your card.
  2. Cut two 3 x 4 pieces out of the Whisper White card stock; Cut one 3-1/4 x 4-1/4 out of the River Rock card stock; Cut one 3-1/2 x 4-1/2 piece out of the Cameo Coral card stock; Cut one 2-1/2 x 4-1/4 piece out of the Ginger Blossom Designer Series Paper. Now you have all your card pieces.
  3. Using the Coluzzle, cut an oval out of one of the Whisper White pieces. Make sure it's centred.
  4. Layer the piece of Whisper White that has the oval cut out of it (the frame) onto the other Whisper White piece. You can use removable adhesive (Dotto) to hold it together it you'd like.
  5. Stamp the rose and the leaves from the Embrace Life stamp set with the VersaMark ink pad inside the oval.
  6. Remove the frame and sprinkle clear embossing powder on the images. Heat with the embossing gun.
  7. Put the frame back on the Whisper White piece with the image on it.
  8. Using the Stampin' Sponges, sponge Ruby Red ink (from the pad) on the roses; Sponge Cameo Coral around the roses; Sponge River Rock on the leaves.
  9. Remove the frame and adhere the Whisper White piece to the River Rock piece; Adhere that piece to the Cameo Coral piece.
  10. Using the Horizontal Slot Punch, punch a slot into all the adhered pieces.
  11. Take the ribbon and tie it through the slot. NOTE: I died the Whisper White ribbon Cameo Coral by taking the Stampin' Sponges, inking it in Cameo Coral and then wiping the ribbon with the sponge. It dries really fast. You could also use the Cameo Coral Double-Stitched Ribbon.
  12. Adhere the Designer Series Paper to the bottom half of the River Rock card.
  13. Using the Stampin' Dimensionals adhere the image to the card.
  14. Rub-on "Make a Wish" from the Eastern Elegance Rub-Ons.

I love this card! It is quite elegant. You could change the sentiment so it could be any type of card you need.
