myStampBOX: Fall Fun

We're sharing a showcase of fall projects at the myStampBOX blog this week. Here's a layout I did of me with my sweet niece, Natalie. I stamped her name with the Royal Flush alphabet and embellished with a little fall-colored bling. (Click on photos for a closer look.)

The cascade of leaves was created with several stamps from Floating Leaves. I LOVE using colored pencils to get great shading. I also cut the edges of a few leaves with my craft knife so I could tuck the photos underneath. Be sure to stop by the blog to see all the great Design Team projects. HAPPY FALL!

myStampBOX: Christmas Tags

I've seen the aisles start to fill up with Christmas goodies already, so I decided to experiment with some new paper lines and classic myStampBOX Christmas stamps to make some tags. Here's what I made! (Click on any image for a closer look.)
 First up is a tag with Santa and sentiment from the Ho Ho Ho set of stamps. A little pencil coloring goes a long way with these images!
 This tag is a little more elegant. The sentiment is also from the Ho Ho Ho set. I cheated a little and used the edges of an oak leaf stamp from Floating Leaves to simulate holly on the edges of the tag. Sneaky, huh?
 My final tag has the adorable reindeer from Ho Ho Ho and a sentiment from Small Greetings. I think they work perfectly in small punched circles and labels. Link me up with any holiday projects you've started already this year. I'd love to see them. Happy stamping!

Scrapbook {Express}ions & myStampBOX: Thanks

I'm hosting a challenge at the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog today featuring overlapping as a technique. Come play along for a chance to win our monthly gift certificate!

The sentiment features overlapped, stamped alphabet letters using the myStampBOX Summer Alpha set. They are so easy to cut out! I was inspired by our fearless Design Team leader, Ally, to try this overlapping technique with stamping. Thanks, Ally!
