Hello! Today I have the privilege of blog hopping with Whiff of Joy!
These stamps, designed by my friend Stephanie Schütze, are beautiful! They are artfully themed, and come in deeply etched red rubber, with cling backing. This is the set I received:
And this is the card I made:
I stamped the stacks twice for each image, then colored the book covers with colors that reminded me of old leather-bound books. I used Thin 3D Foam Squares, and 3D Foam Squares (regular thickness) on every other stack, to give them dimension.
For the open book, I stamped twice, then fussy cut the top page, folded and curled the page, and adhered to the book with MyStik® Permanent Strips (because I can dispense them 1 at a time) and then added a 3D Foam Square under the page to give it dimension. Here’s a side view:

Just wanted to show a way to use the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Keepsake Envelopes ~ I thought they were perfect as a purse!
I wrote the tutorial on the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L Blog, if you want to see how to make it.
These are the supplies:
Have a great day!
The other day Spellbinders™ held a card making activity for the office folks, you know, the accounting, product development, customer service and everyone else behind the scenes, including the guys and the bosses! The challenge was to make a card in less than an hour. This is my entry –
There were several comments on the Spellbinders blog post asking for larger images so NOW you can see it!
And to prove that you CAN do it in less than an hour, here are the instructions- sorry I don’t have step photos!
- Create white card base 4.25 x 5.5″, with top fold.
- Emboss 4.25 x 5.5 “white cardstock with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities™ folder ES-001 Simplicity in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine. Trim around embossed design edge, attach to card front with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares.
- Cut/emboss Floral Ovals #3 (#1 is the smallest) with white cardstock and Wings of Hope Butterfly with patterned paper. For both die cuts, leave the paper in the die and apply ink through the openings of the die template like a stencil. I also added some ink to the edges of the Floral Oval.
- Stamp the greeting into the Floral Oval with the same ink. Attach Floral Oval with 3D Foam Squares.
- Bend the Butterfly wings, add 3D Foam Squares to the body and attach to card.
- Add pearls to Butterfly body, Floral Oval and lower right corner.
Its pretty easy, and I probably spent more time fussing about which patterned paper and ink to use than anything else!
These are my supplies:
