Stamp Yourself Silly!

We're stamping ourselves silly at
 Did you know that Little Yellow Bicycle carries a wide variety of clear stamps?
Love large scripted words or typewriter font?
Then these are a must-have for your stash :)
For the assignment I chose to focus on stamping onto one of the new
Naturals elements from LYB...burlap!
Whenever using new clear stamps I like to practice a few times before stamping onto the 
desired surface.  Another tip is that I do not wipe off the ink before reinking to stamp the final image.
I find that a little ink 'build-up' gives a darker and more filled-in look.  

For this card, I used black Staz-On ink to stamp both the paper and the burlap heart. Staz-On ink
 is perfect for mediums such as canvas, cork, metal, etc. because it doesn't bleed. 

 It may be necessary to stamp twice on the burlap, but the great thing about a clear stamp
 is that you can see where you're stamping!    
You can also take a marker (of the same color) and fill-in any uninked areas if desired...
often times it looks great with a little of the background showing through though.  
After stamping, I clean the stamp(s) with a cleaning solution.

On another note!  I was invited a couple of months ago to share my craft space and
organization with Craft Storage Ideas Blog!

 Hey, I can work on a project, swivel in my chair and fold towels without having to get up.
Works for me LOL!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
