Hi friends! Happy end of July! I cannot believe it!! As always, we’re delighted to welcome special guest Suzy Plantamura for her monthly installment of 5 Ways in 5 Days! Today she’s featuring our (just released last week!) set called The Write Stuff! Let’s dig in and keep reading for all the details! Enjoy!
My “one stamp, five ways” post today uses lot of products from the new Just A Note release. I picked the Just Write stamp set to use on my 5 cards today. So many of the products go together in this release, so I ended up using quite a few of the other ones.
I started this card by stamping the new Ticking Cling stamp with black ink on white cardstock. I then stamped the row of pencils from the Just Write stamp set with black ink on white cardstock. I colored them in with lots of different colors of Copic markers and die cut them out with the matching dies.
I attached the two rows of pencils on each side of the background and then die-cut the entire piece with the SSS A2 Thin Frame Die. I attached them to a card base made with black cardstock. I die-cut the Looking Sharp Die twice from white cardstock. I colored in the inside letters with some of the same colors I used in the pencils. I glued them together and attached them to the center of the card with foam tape behind them. I die-cut a small sentiment from the new Reverse Teacher sentiment strips using the smallest SSS Sentiment Label Dies. I attached that below the larger sentiment.
I used the same Ticking Cling stamp for this background. This time I stamped it with Tidepool Pawsitively Saturated Ink and then die-cut it with the A2 Thin Frame Die. I attached it to a card base made with dark gray cardstock. I stamped the list stamp from the new Noted stamp with black ink. I stamped the little squares and then the check marks with the same Tidepool Ink. I also stamped the list of things about the teacher with the title at the top. This is the cutest set of stamps for making little lists!
I stamped three of the pens/pencils from the The Write Stuff stamp set with black ink on white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. I die-cut them out with the matching dies. I die-cut two of the Teacher Die and colored the letters with a matching Copic. I glued the two together. I attached the list, the three pens, and the title on the card background using foam tape behind the center marker and the title. I then stamped a secondary title from the Just Write stamp set with black ink and attached it below the Teacher sentiment.
I die-cut a rectangle using the Mini Slimline Rectangle Dies from white cardstock. I stamped the row of pencils on each corner diagonally. I colored them in with Copic markers making them look like actual #2 pencils. I attached this piece to a dark gray card base.
I stamped two sentiments from the The Write Stuff stamp set and several of the small hearts. I attached them in the center of the pencils making sure they all followed the same line by using a ruler to straighten them. I added some red Nuvo Drops around the pencils.
This is my “random stamping” card that I always make. I stamped all of the images in the Just Write stamp set with black ink on white cardstock arranging them like puzzle pieces fitting around each other. I used Latte Pawsitively Saturated Ink so I could color them with no-lines.
I colored them in with Copic markers and used my Crafter’s Companion Glitter Pens I received in a previous card kit (love this set).
I die-cut this piece out with the A2 Thin Frame Die and attached it to a blue cardstock card base. I then stamped a sentiment from the The Write Stuff stamp set with black ink and die-cut it out. I attached that to the center of the card with foam tape behind it. I used another sentiment from the Reverse Teacher Sentiment Strips set die-cut with the SSS Sentiment Label Dies. I attached that below the other sentiment. I then added some blue shiny Nuvo drops around the background.
I die-cut a Slimline Rectangle Die out of white cardstock. I then stamped the long row of pencils on the bottom edge letting it slightly hang over the left edge. I stamped it again lining it up with the first set letting it hang over the right edge. I then colored all of them in with Copic markers. I used a white Uniball to add white lines to the pens. I attached this piece to a blue cardstock card base.
I stamped one of the stand-a-lone pencils with the same ink and colored it with Copics. I attached that to the top of the card with foam tape behind it. I stamped a sentiment from The Write Stuff stamp set with black ink and die-cut it out. I attached that below the pencil. I also stamped one of the pencil line stamps on the right of the pencil with black ink,
As you can see, this The Write Stuff stamp set goes with so many other products from the Just A Note release. My 8 year old granddaughter was over when I was finishing up my 5 cards, so she had lots of input about how she wanted them to turn out. She plans on giving them to her teachers this year. I’m so happy that I made so many cards with these school products that will actually be used for the right purpose – to make a teacher’s day more special. Thanks for visiting today! Suzy
