It's All About Stamping

“In The Good Old Summertime” Tour de Freak!


We’re so glad you could join us for the monthly Tour de Freak!  Hope you feel inspired and those creative juices are flowing!

You’ve probably just visited the previous stop on this tour which is Ilina Crouse – My Creations blog.  Wow!  She has some great projects!

My first project was created with the thought of summer weddings/anniversaries.

I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #78 for the layout and I’ve used some Smooch Top Coat to add some shimmer and shine!

Here’s What I Used:
Stamps: Happiness Shared, Occasional Quotes
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink,
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Pink Pirouette, More Mustard, Pretty in Pink, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand,
Accessories: Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Corner Rounder punch, Eyelet Border punch, Square Lattice emboss folder, Perfect Polka Dots emboss folder, Aqua Painter, Smooch Top Coat,


My next project was inspired by summer colors and the new stamp set (which I adore!!) Every Moment. This is a bright color combo for me but I was needing something different and bright today so I just went with it!

Here’s What I Used:
Stamps: Every Moment, Curly Cute
Paper: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White,
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Sahara Sand, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Soft Suede,
Accessories: Regals Buttons, Scallop Edge Border punch, Black Taffeta 1/8″ ribbon, Mat Pack/Paper Piercer, Aqua Painter,


My last project is this little box I made for a friend’s birthday using the same stamp set.

Here’s What I Used:
Stamps: Every Moment, Teeny Tiny Wishes,
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White,
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Early Espresso,  Wild Wasabi, Garden Green,
