White Craft Pad vs. Staz On Opaque Pad

IMG_8031I know I’ve said this before, but I absolutely adore our Bakers Box Thinlit. The box is the perfect size for sweet treats. An added benefit is the little window die that allows a peak inside the box to see what is enclosed.

For video tutorials on how to construct the Bakers Box, go here  or here . Today’s Video tutorial below focuses on the difference between the two white pads I used – the White Craft Stampin’ Pad and the Staz On Opaque Pad.

Nested Valentine Egg

box01I found these adorable Lindt Lindor Chocolate Valentine Eggs while grocery shopping at Kroger. Of course I wondered how I could parlay them into a stamped project. Instantly my favorite Scallop Tag Topper Punch came to mind.

This particular package has a raised platform that “nests” the egg securely. The video tutorial to follow will show you how to make these adorable Valentine treats.

I’m Lost Without You

IMG_8057Ba ha ha ha!!! The joke’s on me with this card. Can you tell why? If not keep reading.

IMG_8064This is a card we made at my last Mother Daughter Stamp Club. One of the club members had been asking about Heat & Stick Powder so I incorporated Heat & Stick Powder and Dazzling Diamond Glitter. Come back tomorrow for a video tutorial on the wonders of Heat & Stick and how to use it.

IMG_8087For this card I also wanted to use some of our new items from the Occasions Catalog – our World Traveler Textured Embossing Folder and Going Global Stamp Set.

I thought I was so smart
I wanted to be able to stamp the greeting on top of the embossed image. My “a-ha” brilliant idea was to use the underside of the impression so that the surface would be flat for stamping. I thought I was so smart until one of the girls at club remarked, “Yeah, but … when you use that side doesn’t it make the globe wrong?” … crickets

That’s when one of the moms said, “Well, it just shows I really am lost without you.” Good save.
