Teresa Collins Stampmaker Class at CHA

A HUGE thank you to Teresa for hosting the class and getting everyone started on making the cute Valentine's tags by making the Paper Rose and sweet mini frill from a coffee filter to use on the tags.
We hope everyone learned something about the UNIQUE versatility of the Stampmaker Kit and how it can create your own PERSONALIZED stamps, embosses and stencils.
We are on booth 972 - stop by for a one to one demonstration on just how easy it is to use!
HUGE thanks too to all the helpers - Vicki, Janet, Diane & Missy xxxx

Embossing

Even though it is called the Teresa Collins Stampmaker-it also makes stencils and embossing plates.  DT member Cheri Piles created this great little monogrammed tag.


She also created this one for Christmas but I think it shows the amazing detail you can get.

Go Create!

New January Stamps

We wanted to create something different than the standard pink and red Valentine's. We love the look of all these burlap projects that you can see on Pinterest and all over other design sites but we prefer linen fabric so decided to create our own stamped linen stickers. Simply cut a strip of linen fabric and stamp the Valentine's tag with Black Onyx Versafine ink and heat set it and then run them through a Xyron machine and you now have fabric stickers.

Happy 2012!!

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and hope you have a great 2012!! Thank you to everyone who has supported the TC Stampmaker this year and look forward to lots of new projects and ideas during this new year. I wanted to share this gorgeous vintage style card by DT member Cheri Piles.



I created the layers of the card then stamped 2012 as my background in a blue ink. I then stamped the Happy New Year in a darker color, the brown. I love the contrast in this card with the colors and how you can clearly see each stamp yet the do not "compete" with each other but rather COMPLIMENT one another nicely. I love playing with stamps like this, laying one over another and playing with color combinations. So much fun!!
