{Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Tags in a Box}

Hi there, I'm Ruth from Artful Stampin and welcome to another Stamping Sunday Blog Hop.


My apologies for not making last month's hop, October seemed to just run away with me.  We're planning to move house soon so there has been lots of decluttering, sorting and clearing to do.

So the theme this month is to make some tags, either with a box or 3 different ways.  I opted for the box as I'm trying to get better at box making.


Here is the box with my set of tags

This is the lid of the box which I stamped with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and then decorated with some die cuts from the matching set of dies.

Here is a quick tutorial showing how I made these


To make the box base cut card 8 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches and score 1 inch all the way around.
To make the lid cut card 8 1/4 by 5 inches and score just under 3/4 inches all the way around.
The inside divider was made by cutting card 3 1/2 inches by 8 1/4.

{Sneak peek of new product - Enjoy the Moment}

A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed attending an online event that was organised by Stampin' Up! It replaced an in person event and was enjoyed by over 10,000 Stampin' Up! demonstrators through out the world.  We had the option of purchasing a goody box... here is the video of me opening it...


I couldn't resist making these simple note cards with this new set that will be available to customers in January 2021.  It's called Enjoy the Moment and it features dried seed pods from around the world.  It's such an on trend set of images and I look forward to seeing how I can incorporate them into a stamped wreath.  I teamed it with the set Comfort and Hope, it has some great texture stamps in it.

For this set I used Gray Granite and Early Espresso.

Here I experimented with Gray Granite, Old Olive and Granny Apple Green.


The Stampin' Up! Notelet and Envelope packs make card making so easy.


Here is the video of how I made them...

{Stamped Summer Wreath using Floral Essence by Artful Stampin}

So I have been on quite a journey creatively these last few months.  My love and appreciation of the versatility and unlimited creative options of stamps has grown.  I always knew that once you had a rubber stamp in your hand the choice was yours as to what colour you used and where you stamped it.  However by playing and experimenting with multiple stamps and images has opened up a whole new world to me.

This world can be yours too.  You may not have the same stamps, that doesn't matter, as long as you have images you like and enjoy looking at. By spending time with them, experimenting with different colours, repeat stamping and seeing how they look with other stamps you can find a way of expressing yourself artistically.  BE WARNED you will most probably discover new techniques and new creative addictions along the way!

This is a detailed wreath stamped on 12 x 12 Whisper White cardstock.


To see this wreath being stamped skip to 40 minutes into the video below.


Here is a speeded up version of the wreath

Stamp Around Uk VLOG hop - Using a sketch

I know this blog post is a bit late (hangs head in shame).
I've been taking part in a video hop once a month, and this was the project I created for October's theme.

The lovely Janice gave us a card sketch to design around.  If you have never used a card sketch I highly recommend it.  It's a great help if you have lost your mojo a bit.

Here it is

When a sketch has a lot of detail on it, I approach it by trying to have a simple colour palette and use shades within it.


Here you can see I have gone for an aqua and purple theme.  I used Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape, Coastal Cabana and Pool Party as they matched a stamped One Sheet Wonder I had previously created.


After choosing the colours I gathered various dies, I looked for tag and circle style ones and floral and leaves.  After I cut a whole load out I had fun assembling the cards,


I used some co-ordinating sequins to finish them off.


Here is the video that I filmed
