my guest post with The Stamp Market

guest post for The Stamp Market today





I am all kinds of happy to be a guest on The Stamp Market blog today.
Amy the owner asked me last month and I have been anxiously waiting to play with these new September products and craft with these stamps and dies on a couple of scrapbook pages.


This FALL layout I intentionally wanted to keep things white and crisp to give great pop to this image of a day trip we took to Denver a few years back. (See. You are never behind. Just pick up a photo and tell your story and enjoy the process.) I will link the products below.

Here's what I said on her blog about this page:

That Large Leaves Die Set tho...the size is beautifully scaled so that I simply cut the line die from white cardstock for a texture on white vibe, creating a beautiful background. Using a small dab of adhesive I attached the leaves to the base allowing them to float above the paper as if freshly fallen from a tree. The pops of color from the Bloom Street Patterns play nicely with any fall photos. I partnered the hues with a solid cardstock and used the Skinny Alpha along with the HELLO cut out from the Bloom Street to craft a simple title. 



The next layout I did for the blog turned the corner with color. But following my own advice, this was a matter of picking up a photo I had not scrapped yet and letting the hues of the photo edit itself dictate the vibe of the page layout. See what I mean...



Here's what I said about this page on Amy's blog:

Turning the corner by way of colors, also from the Bloom Street Pattern Paper, this sweet layout was born. Using the outline stamps from the Ready to Bloom Stamp Set paired with grey ink, I stamped then die cut flowers with the Ready to Bloom Die Set. I layered smaller flowers over larger flowers after having 'watercolored' them with a mist I had in my stash. Using just a bit of hot glue to layer and adhere allowed these blooms to look as if they were coming to life. The sentiment belongs to the Ready to Bloom Stamp set as well. And that perennial Hey Die looks great on any story page.



This last project I did with the idea in mind that I want to make a mini album, so I started crafting the cover. And now I need to get back to this and have some fun creating more pages with The Stamp Market.

This page includes the Ready To Bloom Card Cover. I absolutely adore this die! I can totally see it beautifully adorning a card cover. But it's a great size for a mini album as well.



Here's what was said about this cover:

The beginnings of a mini album in the works, this page cover started with that great stripe pattern from Bloom Street Paper. Making several cuts with the Ready To Bloom Card Cover, I crafted a background element with white textured cardstock. I also 'popped' several additional blooms on the card cover to create depth and interest. The J comes from the new Jumbo Alphabet Dies. Cutting that out on that old school paisley made me all kinds of happy. It is attached over the Ready To Bloom Card Cover with pop-dots and a label layered behind to help give it dimension and not get lost on the page. Typing up a well loved quote and cutting up journal strips completed this album cover.

You can link through here to find The Stamp Market's Product line. Their focus is on card making, but don't let that limit you. The possibilities are endless for story telling and crafting beautiful pages.

Thank you so much for reading and visiting here today. I hope you too are inspired to take your stamps and dies just a little bit farther.
