Happy Birthday Card with SinCity Stamps

I know you thought I left the team but as a designer of stamps, chipboard, stencils, and mask for SinCity Stamps I have been asked to do some guest today I would like to share with you my Happy Birthday Card....
Do you ever wish you had the perfect background for your card ... well today I am gong to share with you how to make one....I started with the Natural Beauty Stamp Set, stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped it on a scrap piece of paper prior to stamping on my white card base....this will give a muted look to the image. 
Re-stamp on the white card stock with the Natural Beauty flower...this time don't stamp on the scrap paper but right on to the white card stock so the images will be darker.
 I colored the background and flowers in using my Copic Markers.....
Make sure to stamp one extra Natural Beauty Flower on scrap paper, color it in with markers and fussy cut out....
 Place the fussy cut flower on to the top of you finished card base that has been stamped with the Happy Birthday image from my Fall Collection 2 Stamp Set. 
I hope you will try making your own backgrounds...remember you can use any markers or watercoloring pencils to color SinCity Stamp images in. Make sure to check out the SinCity Stamps Store and check out the stamps, stencils, chipboard, etc. Don't forget the SinCity Stamps Blog for fabulous inspiration from the new Design Team Hugs Pammejjo

Friends - Lucy and Ethel Layout with Couture Creations

Hi it is Pam today sharing with you a fun stitching technique using your Handheld Essential Tool Kit and some embroidery thread (I used two strands of thread)....using the paper piercer from the tool kit, pierce through the paper and flags that were cut from pattern paper using Couture Creations Precision Scissors and using a straight stitch sew through the pierced holes.
 Here is a closer look....remember to keep your thread straighten as you stitch....
I made a strip of green Core'dianations using the Crazy Daisy Embossing Folder, sanded it with Couture Creations Sanding Block and added it to my layout with Two Sided Tape. I ran the pink Core'dinations paper through my die cutting machine using the Scallop Nesting Circles and then embossing with the Crazy Daisy Embossing Folder and sanding them also with the Couture Creations Sanding Block and adding some clear gemstones when the layout is complete but then decided I needed a title and maybe some extra embellishments, wasn't sure if I liked the gemstones so I removed them and ended up with my Lucy and Ethel Layout as a finished project
....I hope you try stitiching on paper and my new finished Lucy and Ethel Layout.  Hugs Pammejo

Angelic Hearts Gift Card Holder with SinCity Stamps and Altered Pages

It is so hard for me to think that today is the last post I will be making as part of the SinCity Stamps Design Team but am SUPER EXCITED to share that I will be a regular Guest Designer on the blog.  I will be sharing not only my chipboard, stamps, die cuts, stencils, etc that I design for the SinCity Stamps but also will continue to support Donna and the team anyway I can.... Today I am sharing with you a sweet Angelic Heart Gift Card Holder that I made using the Angelic Heart Collage Sheet from Altered Pages and SinCity Stamps Natural Beauty Stamp Set.
I started by stamping multiple flower images on to a piece of white card stock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.....
Spraying with Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise Spray....allow it to dry completely....
Once dry fussy cut the flowers out, making sure to save two of the stamped and sprayed images....
Fussy cut out one of the heart images from the Altered Pages Angelic Hearts Collage Sheets....trace around it on to a piece of white card stock and fussy cut it out also, (make a small hole at the bottom of the white heart so you will be able to hang your baubles from) will become the back of your project....
Taking your Natural Beauty flowers that you have fussy cut out....adhere them to the back of the Angelic Heart Collage piece....once that is done...adhere the white piece you have fussy cut out and adhere over the back to cover up all the flower but making sure not to adhere the top because you want to form a pocket for your gift card and ribbon to go into.  Add the ribbon to the inside of the top part of heart.
Fussy cut out the last two flower images from the previously stamped and sprayed paper, layer with a pop dot and add to the top of a scallop circle....Place on top of the Heart Angelic Gift Card Holder and add a bit of Gold Stickles to the center, some gemstones to the front of the Angelic Heart and a few baubles to the bottom of the Angelic Heart. I hope you have enjoyed my gift idea and try making some for yourself....Please check out the SinCity Stamps and Alterered Pages, along with the will excited to see what the designers have been making.
