Learn to Make a Welcome Home Wood Sign

By Neva Cole –

In today’s tutorial you will learn to create a super easy wood sign using the ever versatile VersaFine Clair inks.  The VersaFine Clair worked beautifully for this project that took just under and hour from design concept to completion!  The ink pads are nice and juicy, so the first stamp image was perfect every time, which is helpful when free hand stamping with out a stamp platform.

Skill:  Beginner

Time:  1 Hour

Directions:

Step 1:

Remove twine from the sign so it will lay flat on your work surface.  With lines on the sign already in place it was easy to line up the sentiment and acrylic stamp block.  Once the stamps are aligned, place a large acrylic block over the stamps lining up the edges to allow perfect positioning.

Step 2:

Stamp the sentiment in VersaFine Clair Pinecone and heat emboss with clear Embossing Powder.  Gives the sentiment a bit of shine and keeps it from smearing!

Step 3:

Using and ink blusher ink the edges of the sign with VersaFine Clair Cheerful.  Start from the outside edge and blend toward the center to create a slight ombre look.

Step 4:

Using and ink blusher ink the edges of the sign with VersaFine Clair Summertime.  Start from the outside edge and blend toward the center but not as far as the Cheerful layer.

Step 5:

The leaf images are stamped using a very old stamp that features Fall leaves. The Oak leaf is stamped in VersaFine Clair Acorn, the Aspen leaf in Summertime, and the Maple leaf in Tulip Red.  The sign can be heated with a heat gun, or set aside until the ink dries.

Step 6:

Replace twine through holes in the sign and display!

Quick and Easy Place Cards For Your Holiday Table Setting

Oct-2022_Katy-Ingram_Place-Cards-Group_IG-1

By Katy Ingram –

Hello Friends! Katy here and today I am creating place cards for my Thanksgiving table. Now I know some people may not do this, but I have added a bit of a twist to mine. On the inside I have included some encouraging and uplifting sentiments to let my loved ones know I appreciate and love them and that I am thankful and grateful to have them at my table for the holidays. Just a little something to make them smile this holiday season. 

In today’s video tutorial you will see how easily these cards came together using some Memento Inks and I also share where my inspiration came from. I also mention these would be great tombstones for Halloween!

I cut a piece of heavyweight white card stock 2 3/4 inches wide by 8 inches long and scored at 4 inches and then used the number 8 arch die within the Spellbinders Essential Arches layering dies. 

To create the card simply fold the card at the score line and place the arch of the die a bit above that folded line so the die is off the top of the card stock and then run it through your die cutting machine. 

The video below has all the details. I hope you enjoy and are inspired to add some inspirational place cards at your table this holiday season.
