Snag'em!

When Imaginisce introduced their 
little pieces of art called "Snag'em" stamps
a few years back, I immediately fell in a lot of love!
They're perfect for all sorts of projects, especially if you're
wanting to create several of the same thing, such as cards or tags.
 Here are a couple of sweet cards that I crafted
using Snag'em stamps from Monster Mash and Christmas Cheer.

 Here's a little tip that makes a lot of difference when stamping with clear stamps:
lay a piece of foam or cloth under your project before stamping.
This allows the paper to meet with all of the image and leaves you
with a clean design!  In coloring in my stamped images, I'm fond of
using watercolor pencils or dye based markers such as LePlume by Marvy.

Supplies: Monster Mash- Mummy, Sugar Skull and Eddie Snag 'Em Stamps; 
Spook Alley 12x12 Paper; Tricks & Treats 12x12; Fall Medley 12x12 Paper;
 Glam Rocks - Rhinestuds; Tools- i-rock LED Lighted Tweezers; i-rock;
 Big Shot and Lace Scalloped Die and Lollipop Font Die by Lifestyle Crafts
 
 In keeping with the homespun feel of the kraft card I wanted to 
create a blanket stitch around the edging, but I didn't want to stitch directly onto the card. 
Instead, I took a piece of kraft paper and cut it to the size of the card front. I was then
 able to add the stitching without losing the effect that I was looking for! 
When adding the Hot Rocks to the stamped trees, I just followed the pattern of the dots 
from the Christmas Joy Paper ... nice, neat and easy!

 Supplies: Christmas Cheer- Partridge & Pear Tree Snag 'em Stamp;
 Warm Wishes 12 x 12 Paper; Christmas Joy 12 x 12 Paper; Peace on Earth 
5 x 12 Chipboard Sticker; Brad Daddies - Small; Hot Rocks Compact - Glitter; 
Tools- i-rock; i-top; Paper Punch - Small; i-rock LED LIghted Tweezers and i-rock Bling Pad


I appreciate you dropping in!

  2. Love the cute monster card - the sentiment is so funny! And that Christmas card with the awesome stitching is probably the prettiest Christmas card I've seen thus far.

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
