Stamps and the Cricut!

Hello there everyone! Last month if you saw my post for my DT spot on The Bug Bytes I did a small tutorial on making stencils with your cricut. Well I am enjoying using my cricut in different ways and thought we would move into making stamps with your cricut! Sound fun? It is! Let's get started.....first you get some of Provocrafts stamp material. You set your cricut on the setting according to the package.....which is blade depth 4.5, speed 3, pressure 4.

Now the really hard part......choosing a design to cut! Lol As you can see by the photo I chose just a few.......

Now you can stamp away and make some projects! I just used a few of what I cut out to make a couple cards.

Love it!! I think I really like the monogram one.....from Tie the Knot cartridge.....yep....I can see making a set of these for a gift! Well any could be a gift! Lol That's it! I hope you enjoyed my brief tutorial on stamping! Have a great day and happy stamping!

Much too hot here.....

Hello again.....are you all having a heat wave? I can only pray that it will cool off eventually! Cannot wait for October weather! Lol I have a few cards that I think got lost along the way and I forgot to post them on here! These are the cards I did for my May Advanced cards class at the Sassy Scrapper. They are all Tim Holtz inspired! So if you are game come take a look at how we got our grunge on! Lol

First card is a wallet card......used some grunge paper, Tim's gears, and a faux leather technique!

Next was a double flap card.....again with the grunge!

As you can see we inked and dry embossed and had fun doing it!!
And lastly a diagonal top card......sometimes I am not sure what to name these cards! Anyway......more inking, industrial grunge technique, and pure fun!

Now how did you like that for grunge? All had an awesome time! Well that is it for today! Must go shopping for clothes for my son who is leaving for college soon! Have a great day......bye for now...
