Welcome to another edition of Tuesday's Tips, Techniques and Tutorials.
This week I have a clever little tip for you.
Always tired of finding something to unclog your crystal effects everytime you want to use it.
Well do what I do. Unwind a paperclip or use a safety pin. Then so it doesn't get lost attach one or  two rubber bands to you bottle. Just wrap them round. Then put your pin underneath the bands. There you go. One unclogging tool at hand whenever you need it. Hope you liked this weeks tip.
 
 
 
If you would like to order some Crystal Effects email me today.

STAMPIN' UP! SPREADING INK TECHNIQUE

Hello lovelies and welcom to Tuesday Tip's, Techniques and Tutorials.
Lately I have been getting into some watercolouring and so I thought I would share this video with you all.
Very nifty and effective way to watercolour your line images and presented by the lovely Carrey from the Stampin' Up! home office. The stamp set that Carrey uses is not longer available but this technique would be great with the Stampin' Up! Gently Falling or Fabulous Florets

DAZZLING DETAILS

Another quick card. I wanted to try out my new firm foam ink pads and also the Silver Dazzling Details. Loving both. The Dazzling Details has a very fine tip and is quite precise. I also like that it is very glittery ( that is a word I am sure) unlike other brands on the market where there are "holes" between the glitter.

MANHATTAN FLOWER CARD

As many of you would know I have been making quite a few cards lately and entering them for challenges at various places. Well with all the creativity flowing there has been alot of misses with thing I thought might work but didn't. I have accumulated various stamped images, cut outs, embossed background etc. So I thought I would put them to good use and make up some quick cards. This is one of them.
I have left off the sentiment on this card as I think it could be used for birthday, thankyou, sympathy or anniversay card. Will have to wait and see what I will use it for later. It is going into my little stach.

PEFERCTLY PLACED STAMPED IMAGES

 
Welcome to another edition of Tuesday's Tips, Techniques & Tutorials.
Today I am going to show you how to get the perfectly placed stamped images.
The big secret is - you use a Stamp-a-ma-jig. A what I hear you say.
A stamp-a-ma-jig, just like thing-a-ma-jig only better.
 Without further ado here we go with the tutorial. Things you need:
*Stampin' Up! Stamp-a-ma-jig
*Stamp set of choice - mine is Owl Occasions
*Ink pad of choice - darker colours are easier to see
* Whisper White or Very Vanilla Cardstock for Stamping.
 
Step 1 - ink up your stamp
Step 2 - Insert plastic piece snuggly into t-bar of stamp-a-ma-jig
Step 3 - Making sure your block in snug in the t-bar stamp your image onto the plastic.
 
 
 Step 4 - Lift up stamp and you will be left with an image on the plastic like below
Step 5 - Align the stamped image on the plastic sheet to where you want it on your cardstock.
I wanted my owl on top of the branch.
 
 Step 6 - Holding plastic sheet place stamp-a-ma-jig into position making sure it is a snug fit against your plastic sheet.
 

Step 7 - Remove plastic sheet carefully. Your stamp will be going in place of it.
 
 
Step 8 -  Making sure your block in snug in the t-bar stamp your image onto cardstock.
Step 9 - I am showing off and have stamp-a-ma-jiged (that is a word lol) a whole card.
Great techinique for this oh so cute stamp set.
I hope you like this tutorial. Please leave a comment if you enjoyed it as I love reading them.
Email me to order your Stamp-a-ma-jig today.
