Craft Space Tuesday: Favorite Stamp Companies

Hello Everyone and Welcome to another episode of Craft Space Tuesday!

If you left me a suggestion on the ribbon form doesn’t worry I’ll get to them. 🙂

But this week we have a really fun topic

STAMP COMPANIES!!! 

I mean who doesn’t like talking about stamps!

So I thought it might be fun to share our favorite stamp companies!

I have a top 3. There are a lot of stamp companies I like and own stamps from and a lot that I like but don’t own stamps from yet. But there are 3 companies that I wait patiently for every new release and they are:

Gina K Designs
Lawn Fawn
and
La La Land!

What are your top 3 favorite companies?

Crafting When We Can Add Stars!

Today is also the start of another challenge at Crafting When We Can this week we have an unsponsored challenge but I hope you’ll play along anyway!

The theme is add stars!

Here’s my card which features my brand new MINC!!!

So all the paper is from getting to big scrap pile and for the stars I created my own toner paper (I have to do a Jo-Anns order soon though so I’ll probably get some official stuff)  and foiled them silver with my MINC! That’s it!

New Release at Digistamps 4 Joy!

Where have the last 2 weeks gone! I can’t believe it’s time for another new release!

Alright so I didn’t take detailed notes on these cards… (this one and the one later today) because I threw them together super fast. But I’m starting to get into a new routine with my new job so hopefully things will get better and a little more normal again. 🙂

Anyway, this is Tinka in the Tower from the new release I colored her with copics! All the paper is from my stash!

Craft Space Tuesday Ribbon

Hello, and Welcome to Craft Space Tuesday!

This weeks episode will be a little short…. I was out of some of the supplies for some of the projects I wanted to do for this post. But I’ll talk a little today and maybe revisit this topic later. 🙂 But if you click on the little Pinterest button over on the side you’ll be able to see the Pinterest board where I was keeping ideas for this post.

So here’s a quick breakdown of the results from the little survey I had posted.

100% of the responses said they enjoyed using ribbon!

The next question I asked was What are your favourite ways to use ribbon? Most people said they liked to use it for accents on cards but I got a few really interesting responses!

http://kimpadan.blogspot.com said she likes to use it around the card fold! I thought that sounded like a great idea!

https://sandcastlestamper.blogspot.com/?m=1 said she likes to use it behind a stamped image! I tend to always put the ribbon in front! So smart to put it on the image!

One thing that Shelly mentioned when she answered this question was that she has a sort of homemade bow easy for tying her bows! I totally want to make myself one of these and I haven’t yet! But I’ll be sure to share when I do!

I was surprised by how many people said they feel that they used their ribbon! It was by far the majority! Most people who said they didn’t use their’s left some things that should in the way.

For many people, it seemed that they were just out of ideas to use ribbon and hopefully some of the above suggestions help you out. I ‘ll give more examples when I revisit this with my ribbon projects.

One person did mention that they sometimes struggle to lay down their ribbon straight… Well, straight is hard for me. The best advice I came give for this is simply to try and push the ribbon up against something that’s already flush on the card or use a ruler. I also find that as far as easily adhering the ribbon I like to run it through my xyron.

Alright everyone my internet is acting up again… I’m typing almost 2 sentences ahead of what is showing up on my screen… so I’m going to end this here. Hopefully, I’ll see you next week!

Friday Video: National Scrapbook Day Haul

Remember when I teased on Sunday that I got some really cool stuff? Well, now you get to know!

This video decided it was going to be super difficult…. My camera died when I was filming…. Then for some reason, it decided it needed to be difficult during editing and just ugh…. I’ll get it eventually!

Anyway,  I hope you enjoy!
