Bird and Holly, 2 ways

If you're like me, I will stamp an image onto a test piece of paper (or several) before creating any project.  And, if you're like me , you have an excess of stamped images in your reserves to use someday .  I found a fun way to use those "extra stamped designs": Create a journal page!  See photo at the bottom of this post. This card is a 5.5" x 5.5" (14 cm x 14 cm) card featuring our Bird and Holly Rubber Stamp . Stamped with Brown StazOn ink onto a patterned paper and layered with burlap and green die cut trim. Fuzzy yarn in cream color surrounds the matte.  Green StazOn ink is daubered along the 2 sides.   So I took those unused, stamped images that I have been working on lately, grouped them by type or style, and placed them onto a journal page.  The well-known brand of artist papers, Strathmore has a wire bound book, "Mixed Media."  The size of each page is a perfect, 5.5" x 8.5".The weight of each page is 90 lb. and is

Village Shoppes Wall Hanging

I created a little wall hanging by recycling a jewelry gift box and adding a black velvet ribbon along with our Village Shoppes Rubber Stamp .  This stamp is so fun to color in. The design was stamped with black StazOn ink and colored in using Copic Markers and Derwent Inktense Colored Pencils.  Iridescent glitter paint covers the entire image.  Black jewelry wire was bent into 2 decorative shapes.  You jewelry designers out there would do a better job than me with your pliers!  I cut chipboard to fit neatly into the box and glued the entire piece onto the chipboard.  Placing the entire piece into the box, you will end up covering the knots in the corners. I bought a multi-colored glitter paint set just to test it out and have ended up using it on almost every holiday project. I highly recommend having a set!
