I’ve been meaning to share this tip with you for a few weeks. Here’s a picture I took a month ago shortly after adding 2-way glue to the stickers on my Stampin’ Up! clear-mount stamps. Maybe you have noticed too that the cling on the stamps is not as strong with sticker on.
And maybe you have wondered what 2-way means on the 2-way glue. Well, 2-way glue is a permanent adhesive when you adhere glitter (my favorite use for this glue) while the glue is wet but if you apply it and let it dry, it acts much like a sticky note and the bond is temporary.
So if you love using the stickers on your Stampin’ Up! clear-mount stamps and wishing for more cling, rub some 2-way glue on the stickers and let it dry completely and you can have your stickers and your cling too!!
This fun little Happy Easter Egg Basket Favor is made quickly from Pretty in Pink cardstock and the small oval punch. This would be a great little treat to give to friends, family or co-workers.
I started with a 5″ x 9-1/2″ piece of cardstock that I scored at 2-1/2″, 4-1/2″, 7″, 9″, then scored 2″ from the bottom, which is easily done with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. Fold it up like you would the 2-4-6-8 box. Before I assembled the box I inserted the 2-1/2″ side into the large oval punch to punch the window. Then I cut a 2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of window sheet and adhered the window sheet inside the box with glue dots.
The handle is punched from the Scallop Ribbon punch and the ends covered with a punched Itty Bitty Shape punch flower.
I stamped the Easter eggs on this Easter Egg Basket Favor box with the designs from the Hearts of Flutter stamp set, punched them out with the small oval punch and adhered them to the front of the box. I then used a piece of Certainly Celery cardstock randomly snipped to make the grass. The interior is also filled with thinly sliced cardstock.
Easter is this Sunday and it’s still winter in Kentucky! I love creating new favor boxes for the Petite Purse die. I created this Punch Art Easter Bunny favor box with the paper from the Birds of a Feather Designer Series Paper and Whisper White and Pink Pirouette card stock. Of course, I used a lot of punches to create this little bunny.
Here’s the Feeling Sentimental bicycle in motion! To create the motion, I inked up the stamp with Raspberry Ripple and stamped it four times, shifting to the left without reinking. I love the effect. Then I added the large Rhinestone to the front bike for added emphasize.
The beautiful paper is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. The stack includes 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs. Each sheet is 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″, perfect for card making or picture matting and a variety of other projects. And it’s printed in a lovely array of styles in beautiful In Colors.
“So glad” is stamped from the SAB Bloomin’ Marvelous set. I used a Raspberry Ripple marker to color just the words I wanted from the stamp. It fit just right in the circle punch layered on the scallop circle.
I was able to customize this birthday card with the new Designer Typeset clear stamps. Did you notice the name in the banner at the top? These clear stamps are great for placing your letters and stamping right where you want to. And they are pliable so I could curve my banner too.
The bright colors are compliments of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper which is available for FREE with a Sale-a-bration order. But the sale ends today so act quickly! I love this paper because it’s so bright and cheery and the patterns coordinate so well together. I just used both sides of the paper to get that playful look.
A couple of silver brads hold the contrasting strip of Sycamore Street dspin place. The dark Island Indigo color is perfect for a masculine card. I also kept the stamping unfussy so even with the lively patterns it still has a masculine feel.
