We're so excited to be sharing our first day of Sneak Peeks from the September Release! Today we're sharing Ghostly Good Time, Spider Web Stencil, and Halloween Scene Die. You'll also get to see a new sneak peek stamp release video!

Here's a look at Ghostly Good Time, a new clear stamp set that will be available on September 25th.

What we love about this set:

Ghostly Good Time is a 4x6" clear stamp set with a generous variety of whimsical line art images and sentiments designed especially for Halloween. The images in this set are perfect for coloring and the smaller illustrations make great accent images.

Spider Web Stencil is a 6x6" stencil that makes your Halloween scenes a breeze! It covers a large area and can be used with your favorite spray inks, pastes, and more.

Halloween Scene Die is a thin metal die and makes the perfect backdrop or focal point. We love the spooky but sweet silhouette it creates when added to a card.

Happily Handmade: CAS Shaker Tag Tutorial with Anna


Hi everyone! Anna here today and I’d love to share with you a very CAS (clean and simple) and easy shaker tag design for any occasion (you may even wanna attach one to a mail you sent to a friend).

All you’ll need are a few easy steps, so let’s get to making right away.

STEP 1: Cut Tags

To start with,  I pre-cut tags (4 pieces) using the Craftin Desert Divas Tag It Die.



STEP 2: Die-Cut and assemble shaker area

For the shaker element, I used the star-shaped die and cut it on 2 tag pieces.



Then, I glued the acetate to the inside parts of the shaker element on both pieces.



STEP 3: Add foam tape and add in sequins

Next, I put lots of foam tape at the inside part of each of 2 pieces and put little blue sequins where the shaker part is.



STEP 4: Stamp sentiments and images

When I attached pieces with shaker element to other 2 I pre-cut earlier, I stamped the sentiments with VersaFine black ink. I used two different sentiments from the set.



Then I stamped the images from the same set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and did the coloring. I used color pencils going from light shades to dark ones (I find this way it works better for me).



I also added small images from the set for the background. 



STEP 5: Finishing touches 

For the final touches, I added strings to each tag in matching color.

And it was done! Simple and awesome way to extra treat any present or mail.

Happily Handmade: Heat Embossed Backgrounds Video

We can all agree, handmade gifts are the best - right?

There's something extra special about creating something from scratch and seeing the look on the recipient's face when they realize just how much thought and care went into everything from the wrapping to the card.

This week, the design team will be sharing ways to wrap and embellish gifts year-round. They'll be sharing in the Gallery and here on the blog through Wednesday when we'll officially begin our September Release festivities!

Stamped with Care: Tea Packing Tutorial with Angela


What better way to treat a friend to some cheer than with a handmade tea care package? 

Angela is sharing a template as well as an adorable design she created with one of our digital stamps! Keep reading to see how to make your own.
---

Hi everyone, today I'm showing you a Tea Bag packing which I created for a good friend, who is sick.

You’ll need for this packing:
  • 2 different Cardstock Papers
  • Designer paper 
  • Dies
  • Digital Stamp
  • Foamtape
  • Ribbon
  • Adhesive
  • Memento Ink Tuxedo Black
  • Copic Marker

Step 1:

For my Tea Bag packing I used a piece of cardstock and cut it with a trimmer to 30 cm x16,5 cm and folded it like the measurements from the template.



Step 2:

Then it’s time for cutting out the Design paper with the largest Die from the Fancy Frame Dies and I decide to distress the edges from the second cardstock.


Before you glue the papers with the Tonic Craft Tacky Glue of the packing it is important to glue the ribbon with Adhesive tape on the backside.


Step 3: 

I printed the Digital Stamp Get Well Bunny on a piece of Marker Paper and color it with my Copic markers.


Step 4: 

On the inside I folded on the right a little pocket for the Tea Bags and on the left side I glue a piece of white paper, which I also cutted with the largest Die from the Fancy Frame Dies. There I can write some personal greetings.


Step 5: 

Cutting out some flowers and a circle from the Inside Scalloped Dies and the butterfly from the Window Pane Dies.

For the sentiment from the Simply Said Stamp Set I use a banner from the Flag Banner Dies.

Step 6: 

For the last Step it’s time to decorate the front of the Tea Bag packing with all cutting pieces and some Lollipop Sequins.




I’ll hope you like and enjoyed my Tea Bag packing Tutorial!
