Leaf Gift Card Set by Lesley


Fall is coming and with it the warm, comforting colours and textures I love! Hello crafty friends!  Lesley here! Today I am sharing a gift box that I decorated with a canvas tag and some lace! 

SRM Stickers Blog - Leaf Gift Card Set by Lesley - #cardset #cards #autumn #janesdoodles #autumnblessings #lace #twine #giftset #A2box

I wanted to so some more water colouring. I decided to use the small leaf stamp and sentiment from the Jane's Doodles Autumn Blessings stamp set.


As you can see, I used some lace to adorn my simple 4.25" square cards. The lace is called Lace/2” X 25 Yds. - Ecru

I cut off a piece to fit the width of my card and then taped it down. 
A bit of Twine on each card was used to tie them all together.

I love the way this set of cards turned out.

The lace is a beautiful added touch, don't you think?


The canvas tag was easy to use with some Tombow glue.  I see myself using lots more of these!  You can stamp right on them too!


I love to create gift sets for family and friends...and this stamp set has my brain whirling with Thanksgiving Dinner table setting ideas! I need to play with it some more!

I kept the design simple and pretty! I absolutely love the new lace! I placed all the cards into a clear A2 Card Box, I hope you enjoyed reading about my project today! Happy crafting and thank you so much for stopping by!

I Woof You & Watercolors by Juliana


Hello SRM Friends! It's Juliana here to share a card I created using the A Dog's Life Stamp Set. Having a four legged fur baby myself, I immediately fell in love with this stamp set and couldn't wait to create a card with it.

SRM Stickers Blog - I Woof You & Watercolors by Juliana - #card #janesdoodles #adogslife #stampedstitches #watercolors

I used some Post-it notes to create masks of the dog and dog house so that I could layer the images. I then stamped the images with permanent black ink and colored them in using watercolors.


To create my "grass" I used the zig zag stitches stamp from the Stamped Stitches #1 Stamp Set.

Once the paint was dry, I gave my puppy a shiny nose by applying a layer of Glossy Accents.

Don't you just "Woof" this new stamp set too? Thanks for stopping by today and we can't wait to see what you create and share with us using this set!

HUGS!

Trust in the Lord by Annette


Happy Day SRM Stickers Friends..
Annette Allen here with you today.

SRM Stickers Blog - Trust in the Lord by Annette - #tag #canvas #gifttag #stickers #sentiments #lace #ecru #clearstamps #janesdoodles #fancydoodles #DIY

Today I am playing with SRM Stickers:

I'm loving the new lace from SRM and the Ecru 4" was perfect for this project.  I used some Mod Podge to adhere the lace to the canvas tag.  It drys clear so it worked out perfectly.

Fun with Dies, Boxes and Stamps by Angi


Hello and let's welcome back the uber talented Angi Barrs!  


We are super excited to have her on our All Star Team!  We simply love her style!  Now let's hear from Angi in her own words… 

*****

Hello! Angi Barrs with you today! I am so blessed to have wonderful friends. I always like to thank them in some way when they do something thoughtful for me. Here is a "thank you" gift that I came up with using some fun products from SRM Stickers.

SRM Stickers Blog - Fun with Dies, Boxes and Stamps by Angi - #die #janesdoodles #fancydoodles #kraftwindowbox #tag #thankyou #gift

I mixed three different SRM products to make this one. First up is a "thank you" tag.

The tag is adorned with a canvas piece to add some texture. I used the wafer thin die and white cardstock to add a layered piece. This die coordinates with the mini calendar stickers, but can be used for other purposes too. I love to use it to add sentiments to my projects.

I also used the Jane's Doodles "Fancy Doodles" stamp set to add a sentiment and flower. I placed a tiny gem in the center of the flower to give it some shine.

SRM Stickers Blog - Fun with Dies, Boxes and Stamps by Angi - #die #janesdoodles #fancydoodles #kraftwindowbox #tag #thankyou #gift

I then dressed up an SRM kraft window box. You can use them for a variety of projects. I added coordinating washi tape to both the box and tag. I also stamped an extra flower for the outside of the box.

The "thank you" tag, confetti paper, and a gift card easily fit inside the box. Each of these window boxes comes with a clear film that you can adhere to the inside of the box. This ensures that your contents won't fall out.

Here's the beautiful "Fancy Doodles" stamp set that I used for the sentiment and the flower embellishment.

I hope that you are inspired to make your own "thank you" gifts. Your family and friends will love them.

Or drop by your local craft store and ask for SRM!

Happy Crafting!

Birthday Kraft Box by Amy



 Hello everyone!!  This is Amy here and I am excited to share this fun birthday project with you today using the new Jane's Doodles Eat Cake stamp set and the 2x2x2 Kraft box.

SRM Stickers Blog - Birthday Kraft Box by Amy - #birthday #giftbox #clearstamps #birthday #twine #doiliy #kraftbox

I started by stamping the box with the stamp set in a clear ink.  I love the festive stamped pattern!   Then I assembled the box and added a 4" White Lace Doily to the top, tied it all up with some Strawberry and Marigold Twinery bakers twine and started working on the tag.

SRM Stickers Blog - Birthday Kraft Box by Amy - #birthday #giftbox #clearstamps #birthday #twine #doiliy #kraftbox

I stamped the image onto a tag that I die cut from white cardstock, colored it in with my Copic markers and added a few white pen accents.  I layered it onto another yellow tag and then put a button on top and adhered it to my package.  I felt that it was missing something, so I die cut some yellow flowers, layered them together, and then added a rhinestone to the middle and put it in the middle of the bow.  

Here's the stamp that I used on this project.


Thanks for letting me share with you today!
Join us again tomorrow for more SRM inspiration!

Water Colors and Coffee….by Michele


Good morning! Michele here with another version of Jane's Doodle's Tea Time set.  

SRM Stickers Blog - Water Colors and Coffee….by Michele - #card #janesdoodles #teatime #thinkingofyou #stickers

I stamped it in a light distress ink, so the edges would be incorporated into the watercolors. It gives it a more "painterly" feel.  It's not as neat or precise, but I love the look of it.  

SRM Stickers Blog - Water Colors and Coffee….by Michele - #card #janesdoodles #teatime #thinkingofyou #stickers

I added a sticker sentiment from the Thinking of You Sticker collection, some ribbon and lots of lovely sequins.

BIG Hello Card Set Tutorial from Juliana


Hello SRM Friends! It's Juliana here today to share a set of Hello Cards I created using the new clear stamps from SRM. I love to have extra cards on hand and it's easy to create more than one of the same design when you already have all of your supplies out and ready to go!

SRM Stickers Blog - BIG Hello Card Set Tutorial from Juliana - #cards #cardset #stamps #bighello #stampedstitches

 For this set,  I used the SRM Stamped Stitches #1 and BIG Hello. I began by stamping my sentiment - the Big Hello - onto the lower right hand corner using Archival Black Ink. 

I then placed all of the stitches stamps from the Stamped Stitches #1 set and one of the stitches stamps from the Big Hello set onto a mounting block.

SRM Stickers Blog - BIG Hello Card Set Tutorial from Juliana - #cards #cardset #stamps #bighello #stampedstitches

I wanted to have enough of them to cover the front of an A2 sized card. I then stamped them with Versamark embossing ink on the white cardstock, applied white embossing powder and then heat set it with my heat gun.

SRM Stickers Blog - BIG Hello Card Set Tutorial from Juliana - #cards #cardset #stamps #bighello #stampedstitches

I repeated this for a total of 4 card fronts. Next, I selected a color from my watercolor palette and brushed it across the Hello sentiment. I used a different color for each card to add some variety to the set. Once the watercolor paint was try, I splattered some spray ink for a bit more color.

Finally I embellished each one with a different piece of wood veneer.  I love all the different white stitches on the card.  Click to enlarge to get a closer look!

DIY Menu Board by Christine


Who loves Vinyl? I do, I do! Who loves Patterns? I do, I do! SRM's new patterned vinyl combines both of those and it is fabulous!  Christine joining you today to share a DIY menu board that uses the new patterned vinyl along with out chalkboard markers!

SRM Stickers Blog - DIY Menu Board by Christine - #patternedvinyl #vinyl #chalkboard #markers #DIY

I purchased a black scallop chalkboard from the craft store to use as my base.  I then busted out mil Red Dots vinyl to use for my title and days of the week.  They cut perfectly on the Silhouette Cameo!

SRM Stickers Blog - DIY Menu Board by Christine - #patternedvinyl #vinyl #chalkboard #markers #DIY

I wanted to add our family name to it and thought the Black Dot vinyl would look neat.  It didn't have the contrast I was hoping for so I outlined it with a White Chalk Marker.

SRM Stickers Blog - DIY Menu Board by Christine - #patternedvinyl #vinyl #chalkboard #markers #DIY


There are several Chalk Marker colors available from the store.  I decided to go with a blue for a patriotic color scheme for now.  But later in the year you could change it up with colors to fit the season we are in! As you can see, I added a little doodling too!  

This was a super simple project that could be well utilized in any home.  Check out all the different patterned vinyls to find one that would fit your style!

Petterned Vinyl Monogram by Shantaie


Have you checked out the new patterned vinyls from SRM?  They are amazing!  New, different and nobody else base them.  It's a love thing for me! 

There are some things that never ever go out of style and although they are modified with each generation, monograms have true staying power! Patterned vinyl is a game changer for the classic monogram and adds a touch of whimsy or playful sophistication! 

SRM Stickers Blog - Petterned Vinyl Monogram by Shantaie - #vinyl #patternedvinyl #gift #lapdesk #DIY

I picked up a simple (functional but yawn..boring) lap desk for reading, doodling, coloring, and if I'm to be honest probably a bit of snacking too! To give it some personality I added a layered Silhouette cut monogram, easy quick and stunning!

SRM Stickers Blog - Petterned Vinyl Monogram by Shantaie - #vinyl #patternedvinyl #gift #lapdesk #DIY

I used mint vinyl for the background, and grey chevron vinyl for the focal portion of the design. Use patterned vinyl for bold gorgeous monograms on any surface you want to personalize, or like me get a head start on your Christmas list and add a special touch to your gifts! 

Happy creating! Shantaie

A Baby Gift by Cathy


Hi everyone!  Cathy here with you today, sharing a quick and easy idea for a baby gift.  I started with a mason jar and painted it with some light blue chalk paint..easy peasy, but a bit boring.  So I decided to add some of SRM's new 4 inch White Lace and bit of  Caribbean Baker's Twine around the top of the jar.  It dressed up the plain jar just perfect.  All I had to do next was add some pretty pink flowers.

SRM Stickers Blog - A Baby Gift by Cathy - #baby #gift #doilies #stickers #punchedpieces #twine #lace #linenbag

I used one of SRM's new linen bags, this bag is 4x6!  So it was perfect for adding a sweet little scene to the front and holding a couple of little baby toys!  I used a 4 inch round white doily for my base and added some Simple Stories Hello Baby embellishments, then the final finishing touches with SRM's Take 2 Baby Stickers by the Dozen.  I used the border stickers along the bottom of the bag...they stick wonderfully and securely.  Then I added the " Oh Baby" sentiment on a. SRM 1 1/2 inch punched light blue circle.  Adorable!

SRM Stickers Blog - A Baby Gift by Cathy - #baby #gift #doilies #stickers #punchedpieces #twine #lace #linenbag

I decided to add a little tag to the jar.  So I used another 4 inch white doily, again using the Simple Stories Hello Baby line and more borders from the Take 2 Baby Stickers by the Dozen.  To hang the little tag from one of the flower stems I created the little lace hanger with just a twist of

 A simple gift with a big effect.  I really love the look of the lace on the chalky finished jar.  Simple and stunning!
