Easy Transfer for "Slick" surface tiles -- Give away continues

Sunday, May 17, 2015

The first video with a give away: 

You will need some tissue paper, ink (I used Memento tuxedo black) and some stamps.

In the video below you will see the process of how I made the transfer for the tiles.  I do want to emphasis that the process is not difficult, but you need to use caution during the transfer process' so that the tissue paper does not tear.  This really works well on any slick surface.

The image can also be transferred to the tile using soe glossy accents.

Once the image is stamped, color it with gentle pressure on the tissue paper.  Once the coloring is complete, use either the matte medium or the glossy accents on the surface.  Gently place the image onto the top of the tile and move it to the desired location.  Cover the surface with another coat of the matte medium and pat down with your fingers.

If you decide to use the glossy accents, you will not need to use your fingers.  Simply spread the glossy accents over the surface and even it out with the applicator tip.  Set it aside to dry.

Please do a Video Response if you decide to try these tiles (Tumbled marble or slick surface) so I can see your beautiful work.  I will give you a chance to win one of these for yourself.  In the first video (above) is the actual give away for a chance to win one of FOUR tiles.

Enjoy the video!  Stamp Happy and be a blessing!

Worry and Soothing Stone Tutorial

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

  These Worry/Soothing stones are sure to make a wonderful gift for some one in your life that is facing a difficult time or diagnosis.  They are easy to make and not very expensive.

  You will need  tumbled marble tiles, these are readily available from your local home improvement center. They are approximately $10.00 and measure 2"X2"X1/4" .  The tiles will need to be prepped by removing the fabric backing and cleaning them with a damp cloth or baby wipe.

  Then you will need a few stamps (I used some from Hero Arts and Stampabilities) .  To make sure these tiles will hold up to the wear and tear of frequent handling, use a permanent waterproof ink such as Ranger Archival ink. Please refer to the video below for more details.

 Once the tree's had been stamped onto the tiles, I used my heat tool to make sure the ink was completely dry before stamping on the sentiment.  These tiles are sealed with Glossy Accents, however you can use any workable fixative or spray sealer you have.  The backs of these tiles are finished with pieces of cork that I glued into place using E6000.  Before adding the cork to the back of the tiles, I allowed the glossy accents to dry completely.  In the photo above, the glossy accents are still slightly wet.  

  If you would like to purchase one of these stones, please visit my etsy shop.  The link is above under the main header.  

  Stamp Happy and be a blessing!

The "dot com" has arrived

Monday, May 4, 2015

Hello Friends!

  I can't begin to sing the praises of the cutest blog on the block  and Becky for transferring everything to the new dot com location.  I've been waiting for the transformation to happen for a while.  Between my schedule conflicts (and dare I admit it) incorrect information it delayed the process  by a little bit.

  Youtube, Etsy, Ebay all those links still work.  There are at current two (lonely) items on Ebay for sale however, more will be coming.

Below is a tag that I created for the Creating the Crafty life website.  It is a one on one swap and it was really fun to work with the garden theme.  It kinda shows on video, but this is one big tag!

Your comments and questions are always welcome and I look forward to bringing you even more fun and great crafts right here on!

Stamp Happy and be a blessing!
