Creativity in Motion – animated stamps to bring your artwork to life!

We’re delighted to announce our new line of animated stamps to bring your artwork to life!

With specialized acetate sheets to help your stamped images dance on the page, these sets are absolutely one of a kind and are a must-have for any avid stamper!

Fun Ideas to Try Out

So here are some fun card Ideas that I tried out that are a little different to the ideas on the instructions.

For this card I stamped the Floral Details & Background onto Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide™ Ink  onto the smooth side & smudged & blended the ink with the Round Waterbrush.

I used the dragonfly from the Animated Butterfly Kisses Stamp stamping in black & followed the easy instructions to put it together. I finished off with some Silver Foil Paper & extra flower & leaves to complete the card.

My next card I decided to go for a cute little scene using the 6″ × 6″ Bright Stack  paper to form the sky & hills of grass.

I cut out the hills using the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts & layer them over the blue pattern paper. I then cut out a circle using the Circle Shaker Window Thin Cuts, added the Animation Sheets & added foam tape to form the well where the pull card.

I decided to use the dancing hippo from the Animated Safari Animals Stamp Set for my animation as he seemed to work well in this little scene. I added a stamped balloon from A Wild Bunch & finished off with a saying from the Animated Safari Animals Stamp Set.

With slimline cards being all the rage right now, I decided to try out these stamps on a slimline card.

I created a simple frame on my cricut (I am sure you could fine & do fancy one one if you like) and stamped the animals & added some grass – nice & simple.

What to do with the Left Over Acetate sheets

Colour In

One of the things you can do is colour in your left over sheets with the TriBlend™ Markers to create a rainbow type effect & use the pieces to decorate your papercrafting projects. Make sure you colour in on the right side, if you colour in on the wrong side the markers will remove the black lines on the specialized acetate sheets.

Cut Out

Die cut out some shapes & use as embellishments. The easiest way to attach them is to use some Glue Dots® Mini Dots as they are less likely to show through.

Free Virtual Event

If you want to find out more about this join us on Sunday, 20 September, for a virtual event dedicated to the art of stamping! We will make a total of 12 cards, 3 each of 4 different designs. 

Make sure you mark yourself as going to get you name into the draw for prizes & remember this is a FREE event. We hope to see you there!

Want to start or get back into Scrapbooking, but not sure where to start?

Are you someone who says that I will never Scrapbook as I don’t have the time or I stopped Scrapbooking as I do not have the time? I can never Scrapbook as I am not creative? I can never Scrapbook as I have no where to store all the things I need & I cannot afford all the tools anyway or that is one of the reasons you stopped Scrapbooking?

Well I am here to help you solve those issues.

If you have a small space this is a great kit for you to start this hobby as it takes up so little room, if you seen the amazing craft rooms stock floor to ceiling & think Oh I don’t have room for this hobby – well we all love to have a craft room like that but we do not all have the room – I certainly don’t have the room, but this takes up very little room.

What we give you

We give you memory protectors so your layouts can stay protected, easy to follow instructions. photo placeholder (in case you haven’t got around to printing those phots yet), complementary die-cuts and stickers so you can customise your layouts to suit your needs.
