Hello and happy Friday! My name is Nichole Heady, and I am one of the co-owners of Papertrey Ink. We specialize in clear stamps along with our own line of exclusive paper crafting embellishments and accessories, all of which are created specifically for stampers, by a stamper.
We release new product each month on the 15th, with a special countdown on my blog, featuring sneak peeks, beginning on the 10th. I was just thrilled to be asked to participate here as a guest blogger to debut a brand new product that will not be available until September 15! How’s that for exciting? Let’s get started!
Sweet Tooth Smile by Nichole Heady. Supplies Cardstock, ink, ribbon and vintage buttons: Papertrey Ink; Die-cut machine: Cuttlebug, ProvoCraft; Dies: Spellbinders; Border punch: EK Success; Letter stickers: American Crafts (foam) and Making Memories (mini); Rub-ons: American Crafts; Embossing powder: Stewart Superior; Pen: Uni-ball Signo, Newell Rubbermaid; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
The project I prepared for you today uses one of the ever-popular vintage label shaped journaling blocks. Our new stamp set, Vintage Labels (available on September 15 for purchase), allows you to create four different sizes in any color you desire. All you need is a little cardstock and some ink. Let me show you how!
Step 1: Stamp the label outline with one of the largest images from the stamp set onto Melon Berry cardstock using our Berry Sorbet ink. The stamp set includes a total of eight label images in a variety of sizes so there is something for nearly any project!
Step 2: To make it quick and easy to cut our Vintage Label images out, they were designed to coordinate with Spellbinders Labels One die collection. Center the die directly over your stamped image, using a bit of tape to hold the die in place along the outside perimeter.
Step 3: Stamp the same label image onto computer paper and use a craft knife to cut out the center to create a journaling mask. (You can easily create a mask like this for each image in the set and save them in the stamp case for future use.)
Step 4: Place the mask over your die-cut label. Use our stamp set Journaling Lines right on top of the cardstock and mask.
Step 5: To customize alphabet stickers, try stamping a pattern on them. Here I’ve used our Polka Dot Basics II stamp set along with Ripe Avocado ink to add some character to these American Crafts Thickers.
