Crafty Secrets-Sweet Stuff-Sneak Peek!

I am so excited to be able to share another sneak peek from Crafty Secrets with all of you today!! The NEWEST stamp set from Crafty Secrets is called Sweet Stuff. The stamp set is a large set and includes 32 stamps and it is sooooo adorable!! We are all betting it is going to become a favorite!

For my project today I created a LO using several of the stamps from the NEW Sweet Stuff stamp set. This stamp set is so much fun and has so many possibilities!! After I picked out the pictures I wanted to use then I decided on a few of the stamps from the Sweet Stuff set and some designer paper from the Radiant Paper Pad from Crafty Secrets. I took two sheets of designer paper and using adhesive I put them side by side on another piece of paper to make a 12'' x 12'' sheet of paper. Since the designer paper in the background is a darker color I thought it would be better to stamp the images on white CS. Then I used the Wizard and Labels One S4-161 die templates from Spellbinders to make the diecuts. I also used the Labels One S4-161 die template to diecut some of the pictures. After I had all of the diecuts done then I colored in all of the little images with Copic markers. Once I had all of the coloring done then I popped the diecuts back into the die templates and sponged around the edge on the inside part of the die template. Doing this leaves a white trim all the way around the diecut where the embossing is.

Here are a couple of close-up pictures. As you can see from the pictures above and below the stamped images are so wonderful and would be great for doing LO's, cards, tags to go on little boxes of goodies or a book of favorite family recipes. Before putting anything on the designer paper I inked the edges using Vintage Photo Distress ink from Ranger. I also stamped some of the images with Memento, Tuxedo Black ink on the designer paper just to add a little more interest to the background. The embellishments for the LO were very simple, just a few stickers from the What's Cooking sticker sheet and a little ribbon. The Title and the Journaling was done on the computer and printed out.
