For my ICS Sale-A-Bration blog post, I chose to use the Feels Like Home Stamp Set. You can get this stamp set FREE with a qualifying order of $50 US (before sh & tax). I think it's so pretty and has a homey, vintage look about it. I made two cards to show you that you can color the stamped image as I did with my Stampin' Blends or keep it simple without coloring it at all. You could also color just one part of the stamped image leaving the rest untouched to "spotlight" the red door or blue bicycle. No matter how you use this Feels Like Home Stamp Set, you're sure to bring a smile to those receiving your hand stamped cards.

Cutting Dimensions: Basic Black card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4" on long side. Basic White embossed layer is 5 1/4" x 4". Basic White for stamping is 4 1/4" x 3" and layered onto Basic Black card stock measuring 4 3/8" x 3 1/8".

The Timeworn 3D Embossing Folders works great for a vintage like background on this card.

Creative Card Closure

In a recent Facebook Live, I showed my viewers a fun trick for creating a card closure with the Tailored Tag Punch. My card showcases the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set and lots of colorful layers to make a very bright and cheerful card that is sure to bring a smile! Enjoy this video demonstration and then create a card with a closure made from the Tailored Tag Punch or another punch of your choice. I think many of our punches will work.

FYI...the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set can be yours free when you place a Stampin' Up! order of $100 or more now through September 30th.

Builder Punch & Stamparatus Technique

The Stamparatus is one of the BEST stamping tools you can have in your craft room. I HIGHLY recommend it for all stampers. It's #1 use for me is doing repeated stamping - like for making 100+ Christmas cards of the same design. BUT, don't think that is all the Stamparatus does because it does so much more! This video is the 2nd in my Facebook Live Stamparatus Series. I'll show you how to maximize your time and eliminate all that waste of card stock you often get with using Builder Punches.

(If you missed the 1st video in my Stamparatus series, you can find it further down in this post.)

 

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!This photo shows my set up before I begin stamping. Notice that I have the strawberry stamps on the top sides of the stamping plates as I stamp those first. The strawberry tops and leaves are each on the reverse side as I'll stamp those second in a different color. Remember to have the stamping plates in a vertical position when removing them from and placing them in the "hinges" of your Stamparatus base.

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!

I really do enjoy making my own gift bags and coordinating tags. There's something very satisfying about taking an ordinary, plain bag and making it special! I typically purchase kraft and white paper bags for this purpose.

Stamping Die Cuts with Stamparatus

I think every avid stamper needs a Stamparatus. The Stamparatus is our "perfect placement tool". It has so many features to make stamping easier, more precise, and more time efficient. The Facebook Live Video Replay below shows you just one of the many stamping techniques that can be done with our AMAZING Stamparatus.

 

What beautiful cards these are, and the Stamparatus makes me lots of them fun and easy and in less time!
