It’s that time of year! The days are cooler and the fire is smoldering in the fireplace. Winter will soon be here. The NEW Whimsy stamps for winter cards are now for sale at stampexpressstore.com. Here are some samples of things to come. Of course everything was colored with Copic markers. Designer papers are Die Cuts With a View. Cardstock is Stamp Express. The border punches are Martha Stewart, label punch is Stampin’ Up and the words are computer generated. These cards would make good seasonal birthday cards, or any occasion. Purchase supplies to make them at our on-line store, or buy the finished cards at Brushstrokes and Blessings in the WS Farmers Market. Baby it’s cold outside!
Wahoooo! Our store, Stamp Express won the contest drawing for tons of color core cardstock from the Core’dinations company. We are very excited! Instead of the same color throughout, or a white core inside, this cardstock has various colors inside the color that you see. So, when you tear or sand the surface the inside color shows through. Very Cool!
Before we knew that we won the prize, we used this cardstock at the Scrappers Dream Vacation in Camp Hill, PA this weekend for a make-it/take-it project. See the sample below. We embossed the diagonal pattern on the color called latte using the Scor-pal. Then we sanded the embossing so that it would look like a waffle cone. After tracing the cone and cutting it out, we added a scoop of strawberry ice cream (pink printed paper) and a ribbon for more color. Add this to a Ben & Jerry’s page, or as we did here to Ghiradelli’s in San Francisco. This would also make a great addition to a card or altered book.
See how some of the scrappers at the SDV enjoyed working with this fabulous paper when they made the project with Margaret guiding them.
