The feature stamp set for the month of August and for Stamps in Your Letterbox is Kinda Eclectic (Page 164 of the Catalogue). This is a really versatile stamp set and heaps of fun to use, so for those of you who are signed up for Stamps in Your Letterbox, you are in for a treat this month!
Today I am sharing a pouch card which I have made using not only Kinda Eclectic, but also the Envelope Punch Board. The card fits into one of our standard size envelopes so that you can send it in the mail.
The card itself is a flat card, like a post card, but there is plenty of room for writing on it, and it slides into a decorated pouch made using the Envelope Punch Board.
I have used some of the bright and cheery papers from the Sweet Taffy Designer Series Papers (Page 186), and the “Birthday Greetings” comes from the Four You Stamp Set. They are a little hard to see in the photo, but I have added a little bling with some Sequins (Page 208) on the butterflies, along with some Thick Baker’s Twine (Page 207) around the top of the card to make it easier to pull the card out of the pouch.
It’s not too late to take part in Stamps in Your Letterbox for August, just contact me to sign up, and you can find out more information here.
Such a useful, versatile and fun stamp set, Be The Star is my focus stamp set for this month, and therefore the stamp set you will receive if you are taking part in Stamps in Your Letterbox in July. It’s a great stamp set for cardmaking and scrapbooking, for children of all ages, boys and girls, masculine cards, and definitely Christmas cards.
I have combined Be The Star stamp set with the Stars Framelit dies, the zigzag stamp out of the Work of Art stamp set, splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set, some of the great new black and white Baker’s Twine and some Washi Tape out of the Everyday Adventure Project Life kit, but you could just as easily use one of the other Washi tapes available (page 190 of the catalogue). The colour combo I have used for this card is Basic Black, Whisper White and Bermuda Bay.
The first month of Stamps in Your Letterbox is ready to go!
For those of you who have already signed up, yours are in the mail on the way to you, and I will be emailing a PDF to you in the next couple of days. I am running a little behind this month, but be sure that you will still get heaps of ideas and inspiration for using your new stamps.
And for those of you who are wondering what I am talking about, you can get all the details here.
This months feature stamp set of Stamps in Your Letterbox is the “Be The Star” stamp set (Page 93 of the catalogue), and I am going to be showing you lots of ideas during the month to use this stamp set.
Today’s card uses the colours Crumb Cake (Kraft), Very Vanilla, Night of Navy and Pistachio Pudding. The Pistachio Pudding layer has been stamped with the Hardwood Background stamp with Crumb Cake ink, then stamped with the little stars in Night of Navy ink. The Happy Birthday stamp comes from the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit, and I have inked it using markers in the two colours. Then tie some Linen thread around the small panel before adhering it the front of the card. The stars have been hand cut and popped on with some dimensionals.
