And since in Illustrator it’s actually called an art board or some kinda board I can say that literally. Thanks to some inspiration from another LDS crafting friend, I have been able to include EVEN MORE in my stamp set. What does that mean for you exactly? MORE stamps for the same price I explained below! YAY! Here’s the revision:
If you know what all of the acronyms in the title of this post stand for, you might just LOVE what I’m about to say and be as excited as I am. After lots of searching with no luck finding, I have decided to create my own custom LDS Stamp Set. YAY! I’m so excited. I know that this set is not going to be popular for the masses (and that’s ok), it’s just something I have wanted and needed a lot lately. Since nothing like it exists, I designed my own. At first, I was going to just do a custom stamp set, but then I got to thinking about it and thought huh…bet if I have use/need for a set like this, other LDS cardmaker/scrappers might too. So I contacted a friend of a friend who’s now my friend too LOL (say that 10 times fast) and she said she can hook me up. So…for all of my LDS Crafters out there….this one’s for you:
Click on the image to see it larger! My stamp set is 6 x 8 and will be deeply etched red rubber much like Unity Stamps. You have two options of mounting…well more than two I suppose, but I’m only going to talk about two. These stamps are designed to work with your clear stamp blocks so if you want to cut and mount your stamps yourself (using Aleene’s Tack it Over and Over brushed on the back of them or EZMount Cling or whatever), the cost for the set is $14.95 plus shipping. If you would prefer to have them arrive cut and mounted (on EZMount Cling) , it’s only $22.45 a set. Shipping costs $4.79 and is flat rate so if you want to add more items to your cart you can do that too! Spend $100 and your shipping is FREE!
All major credit cards and PayPal are accepted and they can EVEN ship internationally! For details on international shipping/orders, please contact me. In order to go to production, 15 pre-orders are required…so far, I have 4. If you are interested in purchasing this set, please let me know and I will be in touch with ordering information.
The company producing the stamps is Victorine Originals. You have likely seen their designs wood mounted and for sale in your favorite craft store! Please click here to visit their website and be sure to let Vicki know I sent you!
I’m sure I’m the ONLY scrapper/card maker around that does this, but often I LOOK for opportunities to make things. I went Visiting Teaching today with my companion and figured I could do something MUCH prettier for the monthly message than to just hand the sisters I visit a printed piece of paper. Besides…it gave me justification for playing with some new toys. So…here’s what I came up with:
The “Your Visiting Teaching Message” was added with the computer…man I wish I had a stamp that said that. Oh wait guess what…I soon WILL! Being a graphic designer and all I have decided to design my own LDS themed stamps. I’m even working with a major stamp maker to see about getting them mass-produced so that YOU all can have a set too (if you want one that is)! I’ll have more details on that later though.Supplies Needed: 1 sheet of cardstock for card base (cut at 5 x 9.5…I used “ugly/vintage” paper form K & Company) Adhesive (I used ATG) Punch (I used Martha Stewart’s Punch Around The Page but I forget its name) Coordinating/Contrasting paper for Lovely Floral cuts Bone Folder Lovely Floral Lite Cartridge Cricut Stamps (Blessings from Verve) Ink (Versamark Black)
Score your 5 x 9.5 cardstock at 4.5 and 9. Then, using the edge punch of your choice, punch your top edge all the way across. Trim the punched edge off the by cutting on the 9 inch score line down the length of the punch, then cut on the 5 inch side at the bottom of the punched piece. This allows you to make the pocket without any “extra” punched piece showing through. On the 9 inch score fold it toward the left so it will make a flap and then fold the card in half along the 4.5 inch score line. Apply adhesive of your choice to “flap” and bottom and secure. I used a bone folder over the bottom and side just for added measure.
I used the doily cut at 3.5 inches. First in pink (no shift) then in blue (shift) to make a pendant/medallion for my stamped sentiment. It says “may your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow” (it is still March right?!?!?) and comes from the Blessings set by Verve. It would have been faster to use Spellbinders Dies for the medallion/pendant, but since none exist exactly like this, I had to use my Cricut. See…this is EXACTLY why I’m glad I have BOTH!
In my faith, we refer to the adults as brother and sister so and so (last name). Sister C loved my little “gift” with this month’s message in it! I think I may “present” the monthly message all cutsie like from now on!
Notice a new tab on the navigation bar on my blog! My middle daughter and I have just moved into Young Women’s in our church and will be completing our Personal Progress books together. You can experience it with me by checking out this page. It is highly likely that any scrappy projects I make Personal Progress related will be featured there as well. Enjoy.
