It’s a Stamp Thing

Our Design Team was thrilled when they learned we were releasing acrylic stamps with our Lost & Found, Haunted, Blackbird, Holly Jolly and I Believe collections.  Acrylic stamps make it easy to customize your projects.  There are so many fun things you can do with them.  We challenged our design team to show you some quick and easy techniques as well as out of the box techniques.

 

Bethany Kartchner, this month’s Guest Designer, went out of the box and created something fabulous when she stamped muslin with the dress form that comes in the Lost & Found “Pretty” stamps.

Bethany said: “I absolutely adore stamps and when I saw this dress form in the Lost & Found line, I was inspired to do a mini art quilt. I didn't have a plan in mind when I started creating, I just wanted to have fun with my stamps and paints. One of my favorite techniques is to use a stamped image as a guide and paint over it. This is exactly what I did on this piece. I stamped the dress form three times on a piece of muslin and painted it with Shimmerz paints. I also stamped the background with My Mind's Eye stamps to tie the three images together. I'm planning on placing this project in a small shadowbox for display in my daughters' room.”

 

Anam Stubbington, created custom backgrounds using the Lost & Found “Perfect”, “Adore” and “Pretty” stamp sets as well as our “Blackbird” stamp set.

Tiffani Smith used Copic markers to color in the adorable witch stamp from the “Blackbird” set and created this fantastic Halloween card:

Jana Eubank stamped the banner stamp from the Lost & Found “Adore” stamps in multiple colors on solid cardstock and cut them out to create a banner that perfectly coordinates with our Market Street collection.

Tamara Jensen added rhinestones to the snowflake border to add the perfect finishing touch to her Christmas Card:

Tamara said: “I say you can NEVER start on Christmas Cards too early.  When I wait until November or December - I end up stressed and all of the good Christmas Paper is sold out.  So - the kids are back in school, MME just released 2 AMAZING Christmas lines - let the card making begin!  Stamping is an economical way to add that special touch to your cards - especially when you need to create 50 or more. Smile emoticon  I used the new "Holly Jolly" Stamps and Papers.  I kept the card design pretty simple so your eye can rest on the stamped greeting and Christmas photo.  I used 3 different Snowflake stamps to create the border along the card - and embellished the centers with Red and Brown Rhinestones from the Lush Collection.”

 

Amber Packer created custom embellishments using our Lost & Found “Perfect”, “Pretty” and “Boy” stamps as well as created a custom border using the sun stamp from the “Pretty” collection.

A quick tip:  Remember to clean your stamps after each use.  We suggest you clean our stamps with mild soap and water or baby wipes.

Altered Tinsel Ideas

I love tinsel. I think that just about every project would be made more beautiful with its addition. Don't you? When I found out that My Mind's Eye had tinsel in their Lost & Found line and that it was thick and luxurious tinsel, I felt all sparkly inside. I was so inspired that I created this short video on two different ways of altering it for your projects.
I hope that you enjoy it!

Since it is almost impossible to see the project pictures in the video, here are a few still ones for your enjoyment.
