DIY SPRING STAMPING PROJECT
 
Did you know that you can create your own custom stamps for cards and mixed media art?
All it takes is an eraser or a carving block, and a craft  knife or some carving tools. 
It's fun and easy!
 
Here is what you will need:
  • Speedball Speedy-Carve TM block or eraser
  • Exacto TM or other craft knife
  • Stamp pad, block printing inks, or acrylic paints for printing
  • Cardstock, canvas board, canvas, or other surface to stamp on
ALL OF THESE SUPPLIES AND MORE ARE AVAILABLE AT THE ARTIST ATTIC AT SCRAPPY CRAFT
 
1.  Draw or transfer your design onto the carving block.
 
2.  Optional: transferring an image- 
     a.  For heat transfer - Copy your photo, copyright-free clip art, or text, with a
          photocopier.  Transfer your photocopied image to the Speedy-Carve TM block as
          follows:  Center your image face down on the carving block.  Apply heat 
          with a warm iron for a few seconds.
     b.  For non-heat transfer - Trace your image with tracing paper.  Place the tracing face
          down on the carving block.  Rub the image with the back of your fingernail or the back
          of a spoon.
     c.  When you lift the paper, your image will be transferred from the paper to the block.  
 
3.  Carve around the outline of your image to create a shallow trough. 
     Continue carving away the areas that you don't want to print.  Only
     the raised areas of your image will print.
 
4.  Print your image using Speedball TM block printing inks, stamp
     pads, or acrylic paint.
 
5.  Repeat!

NUVO DROPS ARE HERE!

               
 
 
 We have some new products in the store, called
 
   NUVO CRYSTAL DROPS and NUVO GLITTER DROPS!
 
 
NUVO CRYSTAL DROPS 

 
 We've tried them, and we think they're pretty exciting.  NUVO DROPS are dimensional drops, that dry hard.  The Crystal Drops are glossy, and the Glitter Drops are glossy and glittery!  Similar to Stickles, they do take longer to dry.  Stickles can dry in a few hours or overnight.  NUVO DROPS dry to the touch in an hour to a few hours, but they do take 24 hours to cure completely.  Once cured, NUVO DROPS are very hard, similar to a brad.  They don't squish like Stickles sometimes do. 
 
 
While we still love Stickles, the NUVO DROPS open up new possibilities.  They can be used in cards instead of brads, for a fraction of the cost.  And they can be used in situations where you would rather avoid using metal, such as mailing greeting cards overseas.
 
Both the Crystal Drops and the Glitter Drops come in many luscious colors.  Try them out, we think you will enjoy using this addition to your card-making and crafting repertoire.
