Multi Step Stamping With STAMPOHOLIC

Hi Friends!!!
Today I want to introduce you to SARAH ELLIOT of http://sarahelliottcards.blogspot.in/  .
Intro Photo
She is a wonderful  crafter and a more wonderful person from Ontario, Canada . She will be doing a 6 videos series on STAMPOHOLIC for us. When I requested her she immediately agreed to it. Thanks Sarah and what a wonderful start she has given us.
Over to Sarah.
Hi Friends! I am Sarah, I live in London, Ontario. Married with two kids and work full time as an insurance underwriter on the side
😊 I spend most of my spare time with my family and in my craft room. I started blogging to share my passion for paper crafting which has turned into so much more. I love altering projects, making cards and even mixed media.
Today I would like to share the first of my projects for the Stampoholic tool from Die Cuts and More.
Image result for stampoholic
This tool can come in handy when you are trying to perfectly position sentiments or other stamps and great for when you are not always able to get a perfect impression on your first try.  The paper and stamp stay in the same position so that you can stamp over and over.  But I would like to share some other uses for this tool.
The first project that I have to share is this "Lovely" Anniversary card.  I want to share how you can position your multi-layered stamps so that you can use them over and over again to make more than one image without having to place the stamps every time, which can take a lot of time and patience.
You will need a stamp set that has layers to the image and co-ordinating inks to stamp the layers in.  I am using the Vintage Roses stamp set from Altenew and Stampin Up Inks.
This is a very hard process to explain so please check out the video attached.  Below is a photo of what the stamps will look like after you have gone through placing and stamping for your first image.  Once they are all in place you can just put in a piece of paper and ink up the stamps one corner at a time to stamp as many images as you want.



Hope you enjoy the video and get inspired to make many great projects.  But before you go Die Cuts and More is having a give away, at the end of this 6 Video series there will be a draw and you can win a Stampoholic Nano of your very own.  Please see the rules below.

STAMPOHOLIC

HI friends… I am really excited today, Mrs. Rajni Chawla has reviewed our STAMPOHOLIC TOOL On Facebook. She needs no Introduction as we all know she is the queen of crafting for all of us. I was really delighted to see such appreciation by her on our Product. By the waySTAMPOHOLIC is now available in ready stock on the WEBSITE. Now,  I am COPYING AND PASTING her Review Below….
12345591_1065365496841341_7587354639540338079_n
PRODUCT REVIEW…!!
This one’s for all fellow crafters out there.
Today, I am going to give a review of an amazing crafting tool that I’ve been using for quite a while now. But before you read on, here ‘s something you need to know.
DISCLAIMER : I do not endorse this product in any way whatsoever and I’m not associated with it’s manufacturer as well. Also, I am writing this review after using the product regularly for close to two weeks now.
So, let’s get started…
My general view about crafting is that it’s not the tools or its brand but how u use them that creates the difference. I mean, Buying a crazily expensive tool or machine doesn’t mean that automatically my creations will be beautiful. It happens only when you know how to use the tool effectively and creatively. And that can happen with Rs. 5000 product as well as a Rs. 500. Which is why, personally, I like to go for brand that suits my pocket. But then again, it doesn’t mean that I tend to make compromises and go in for low quality products. All I tend to look for is to get something that has a little value for money. Just like this new STAMPOHOLIC from DIE CUTS N MORE
Not many of you may know but DIECUTS N MORE is our very own homegrown INDIAN brand. And this makes me really happy to know that it’s competing head to head in terms of quality and usability with foreign brands.
12375994_1065365513508006_1507557362556940868_n
STAMPOHOLIC….as the name says it all. If you are addicted to stamping and want NO MORE GUESSING, TRIALS N ERRORS AND MISTAKES, this 8×10 inches magic box is the perfect solution for all. U will wonder how you ever stamped without it. It’s a great stamp positioner manufactured in INDIA.
SUPERB QUALITY, PERFECT MEASUREMENTS, EASY PLACEMENTS, CRISP BACKGROUNDS, EASY MASKING, OMBRE EFFECTS, SPEEDY MASS PRODUCTION AND STAMPS EXACTLY THE SAME PLACE EVERY TIME YOU STAMP.
LAYERED STAMPING AND ALIGNMENT OF STAMP WITH ITS COORDINATING DIE-CUT IS LIKE A CHILD’S PLAY WITH THIS TOOL.
This beautiful smal box tool is very sturdy with glass clear LASER ETCHED top plate. So now its time to BREAK FREE without the worry of the fading of the grid lines. Hinges are perfectly attached with NO SCREECH noise and also You get 2 Neodymium magnets FREE with the tool to hold the paper. The best part is its POCKET FRIENDLY. Die cuts n more has offered an introductory price of Rs 2500 only.
Its a complete package of MONEY VALUE when compared with its functionality.
Hope this review of mine can serve my fellow crafters with little knowledge to save small amount from their hard earned money. I will be soon back with my projects that I tried using this tool. Also, DIE CUTS N MORE will be soon releasing few picture tutorials as well as video tutorials for easy functioning of this tool. .
Till then…STAY TUNED.

Scenic Beauty with Stampscapes Stamps

Hi Friends,
This is Mansi Wishing you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS. Today I want to share with you an introduction to our recently introduced line of STAMSCAPES . So for giving you the introduction I wanted nothing less than the Best. So who other than our favourite Rajni Aunty  (RAJNI CHAWLA). I don't think the Name itself needs any introduction. She has always amazed us all with each and every creation of hers. And she is a Sweetheart, When we approached her for the post, She immediately accepted, ignoring her jam packed tight Schedule. Thanq so much Rajni Aunty. And as always... She has not failed to amaze me.. Beautiful cards she has created ...Each and every piece is worth looking at.  So without any further delay, I here by hand over the post to Rajni Aunty . Here she is....


Hello friends !!

I m Rajni Chawla from Passionately Curious. Firstly, wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Its time to bid a  good bye to year gone and welcome the new year. Its time to rock and roll with friends and family !! Wish them joy and special wishes with our handmade Scenic Cards.

DIE CUTS N MORE recently introduced Stampscape Rubber Stamps in India.These stamps are made with deeply etched natural red rubber which is the most durable and gives the best impressions. You can create your own landscapes using individual, interchangeable elements from nature. Also, you can combine them to style seamless scenes of cascading waterfalls,intimate quite pools of crystal clear water.breathtaking panoramic views,valley floors where the lupine and poppy grow wild,pristine lakes where the fish are practically jumping to be caught,and sumptuous sunsets in golden hues. 

This is my very first try with these stamps. I was totally confused while buying as I was tempted badly with its huge variety  of landscapes, mountains, waterfalls, sky scenes, cloud bars, trees, branches, people, animal images. It was really fun using these stamps and i was amazed to see such detailed images and the end product was just.....WOW!!

 When I was googling down the tutorials of using Stampscape stamps I found a blog named Silverwolf Cards and found a wonderful starting up tutorial. Shaz Brooks idea of stamping images on tranparency with black stazon was great help in building up all scenes.Various Stampscape tutorials are also available on you-tube channel. 


You can add colour by using a Colorbox Stylus tool,or cut & dry foam. All available at DIE CUTS AND MORE
You can stamp your image onto card that you have colored first, either by sponging, brayering, stippling or spraying. I am not going to give directions for these, rather I will again point you to the Stampscapes site, where you will find dozens of video and pictorial 'How-To's', all done far better than I could. You will also find a number of videos on You-Tube.

Explosion box and a tutorial

Hello Friends

First of all Merry Christmas to all of you. Hope you all are enjoying. Winters are here and so the Santa Claus. Today I am going to share two tutorials in one post yes you read it right. So lets move on to tutorials without wasting time.

Tutorial one: Explosion box.
Explosion boxes are always lovely and believe me they are pretty easy to make. Take one 12*12 inch cardstock and one 11.5*11.5 inch cardstock. Score both the cardstock at 4 inches on all four sides. Here is the pic.

Cut the four corners and it will look something like a cross.

Now decorate the panels as you like and assemble.

Now for the lid of the box take 7.1*7.1 inch cardstock and score it at 1.5 inch on all four sides. It will look like this.

Make a perpendicular cut on each corner and paste with the glue to the other side. This will form the lid of the box. And decorate the lid with pattern papers, flowers and other embellishments as you wish.

Tutorial Two: How to put popping out butterflies in the explosion box.
As I get frequent request as to share the tutorial on how I put butterflies on the explosion box.

Cut strips of acetate sheet or some stern plastic in the shape shown below.
Now shape them in Z shape. like this.

Now make a cut diagonally on all four corners of the top panel of (yellow in tutorial) explosion box.
Now just inset the Z shaped acetate strips and add a drop of glue at the backend. It will look like this if you turn it's back side
The acetate strips will pop out in this way.
Now stick the butterflies to the top of acetate strips. and assemble your explosion panels. And finally assembled box will look in this manner. All the pattern papers, die cuts and embellishements are from DCAM Store. So visit our store and start shopping for your crafting needs.

Hope these tutorial help you. Do let us know in case you have any queries. And don't forget to enter into our current challenge Here

Hugs,
Shilpi
