Stamping Crazy!!

Hello Stamping Friends! I'll keep my monologue here kinda short for you today since I have lots to share with you! Fun projects today and some new video tutorials too! Thank you all for your wonderful support, encouragement and kind comments concerning my videos--I hope that they are helpful to you all!

Today is "Try It Out Tuesday" over at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store blog, Follow Your Heart! Today I challenged the DT to make a 2+2 card---2 layers not including base and 2 embellishments. And no I did not cheat, hee hee--my image, sentiment & ribbon are all attached to one layer!! This cutie-patootie stamp is from Anki's Sweethearts called "Isac with Skateboard"--so cute! I'm always on the lookout for cute boy stamps! My second layer is this fun Basic Grey dp from their "Cupcake" stack, twill ribbon is from PTI and sentiment is from Gina K. I also embossed my red layer for some more texture. Make sure and stop by the Store blog today to see the rest of the DT's fun creations!

My next project I'm just giddy with excitement about, hee hee! I absolutely love how this all turned out & was conceived in my head (when I should have been sleeping) last week. It all started with these little tea towels I had picked up at the Target $1 Spot--I got some white ones and pink ones to play with and knew I wanted to try and stamp on them!

Appropriately enough, I used the Lockhart stamp "Teapot" for my projects which include a decorative tea towel, notecard and tea box (of my own design). The lovely dp is new from Stampin' Up!

I stamped my tea towel with my Lockhart stamp using Memento Black Ink & then colored it in with Copics--yes I colored on fabric with Copics!! Love it! I was even able to shade on the fabric--how cool is that! I then heat set it with my heat gun---you could wash this a few times before the ink fades, but is mostly decorative!

For my notecard I stamped the same image, colored with Copics and then added Diamond Glaze to my teapot & cup. The lil' cupcakes/muffins have a topping of Liquid Pearls in pink for dimension--so cute! The pearls are actually Bella Baubles in Oyster!

The above picture and the one at the top shows my lil' accordian Tea Box that I created and made a template for a few months ago. (NOTE: if you make/use my Tea Box please give credit where credit is due and do not use it for submissions or publications please!) You can find my tutorial for this HERE and it's also on my sidebar under Tutorials/Templates. Super easy to make and it holds 4 tea bags inside--so such a cute gift presentation. I used a pearl brad to attach my Bazzill flowers to the top---it also sticks to my small Basic Grey magnet on the front for closure.
I hope you enjoyed my projects today--leave me a comment (I love 'em) and let me know how you liked them all!

  12. WONDERFUL!! I just love your projects. What a great set and so beautiful.

    Thanks again for all the great tutorials. It helps bridge the gap from the west coast to the east coast.

  13. Love your Isac card! So fun!
    And my, you are just so creative! Love your little tea set!! So pretty and clever!!

  14. WOW!! You never cease to amaze me! I will have to try the tea towel. What a fabulous gift this will make.

  15. Wow Suzanne! I fell out of my chair when I saw these. That little boy card is just too adorable with all the fun colors and definitely a challenge to use only two layers but that gift set is drop dead gorgeous! I want to head to target now to try this out! Of course I am sure mine would never look as fabulous as yours but wow, wow, wow this is amazing!! I love the shading and the way you created the tea box and the card! You are a creative genius and a true artist!


  16. I love your video tutorials, thank you so much for your time and effort you put into making these for us! If you have some time left, can you show us how you color the bowl (from the apples), because the area is so tiny and I think it's very hard to color in and would love to see how you do this.


  17. Very cute card and the towel/tea/card set is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  18. Just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your wonderful videos. I appreciate the time you take to make them, since they are so helpful-you are a wonderful teacher!

  19. So clever, love your project. I had just purchased some onsies. I'll have to try stamping and coloring them when my stamps get here.

  20. These are great cards Suzanne!! I love the idea of the towel and tea bag box. Which reminds me, I had stamped some towels for Christmas one year and gave it as a gift. They are one of those things that people cherish...I think because they can use it and they know it was handmade.
    Jodi =)

  21. Wow, fantastic projects Suzanne! I love your Anki's Sweethearts card and wow, that Lockhard project is amazing! What a great idea to stamp on the towel. Love it! :)
    Hugs, Christine

  23. Suzanne, your tea project is just wonderful! Fantastic work!

  24. Wonderful, wonderful!!! I had to have that paper & ordered it up (you enabler, you) =). Would it be possible to get a list of the copic's used? Susana's wish list just keeps growing.

  25. Oh my gosh!!! What an awesome gift set this would make!! I didn't know you could stamp on fabric and color with your copics!! Awesome!! I've got so much to learn about stamping! Thanks for sharing your beautiful project, Suzanne! I really do love it!!
