Celebrating Creativity - Day 3

Today's projects are still from the Tin of Cards project kit.  This set is so versatile as it comes with pre-printed tags to make a birthday, hello, congrats and thank you card.  I did not like the baker's twine on these cards like in the instructions so you'll see that I focused more on the layout of the stamping on the card. 

 
Though I liked using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on the other cards, please note that to stamp on the gold foil itself, you must use Black Stazon and then you will need a Stazon cleaner for your stamps.  But you can avoid that and just stamp on the white card that shows through the gold paneling!

For this card, I layered the gold using adhesive on the back and then stamped on the white card.  Be mindful on where you stamp the saying.  I recommend playing the circle die-cut on the card first and then stamp around it.


For this one, I just put the circle at the top and then stamped on the bottom of the card.  The card looks fancy so you don't have to try that hard with this one!


I decided to try to the baker's twine on the card in a different way so I tied a bow and attached it to the Congrats with a little adhesive.  Again, the stamping is done with Black Stazon since I stamped the foil!


There are a lot of things I've come to love about photopolymer stamps.  One of them is how you can line up the stamps without a Stamp-a-Majig.  In this case, I stamped "Thanks" three times and circled with the epoxy stars.  I loved this one.


While the kit is on backorder until mid-July, I still think it's a great purchase for either a gift or for yourself.  You can make cards fitting any occasion with it and you can use the stamp set to make other cards as you'll see this weekend. 

To make this tin and all these cards on your own, you'll need these supplies!
You'll also need some general crafting supplies.  Here is what I recommend in every crafting kit.

Have a craftastic day,
