Today’s post is one that I am super excited about...I’ve been counting down the days until it was time to post this. Today is the first Right at Home Stamp Launch!
To help celebrate the launch of my stamp I have seven talented ladies who created projects to share with you. I will be linking those at the end of my post so be sure to continue reading to the bottom to see their interpretation of my stamp!
I will also be sharing four of my own projects that I created using my new stamp set. I had so much fun sketching ideas for different projects...I even had a little help from my mom! It really is such a surreal feeling to be creating with a product that you designed and produced. Now, let’s get onto the fun stuff!
Project #1 // Stamped Muslin Bag
When I was deciding how I wanted to ship off my stamps to my design team, I knew I wanted to put them in some sort of drawstring pouch. I looked through my stash and found a stack of muslin bags that I knew would be the perfect fit.
I used the large and small sunflower stamp to create a little garden at the bottom of my bag. After testing out a few different ink colors I found that the Sunflower Fawndamental from Lawn Fawn has the perfect golden yellow color that matched our logo. I added the centers of the flowers with Hot Fudge Hybrid ink from My Favorite Things and the stems with Jellybean Green also from MFT. I filled in the little dots on the centers with my white gel pen.
Above the flowers, I layered two of the sentiments included in the set and stamped them in the same brown ink from MFT. I included two different variations of the same font to create a more interesting sentiment. You can mix and match the two in whatever way you like...I love options! Once you’ve stamped that you have yourself an adorable little stamped bag perfect for slipping in a little gift, etc.
Project #2 // Stationery Set
Since I love giving handmade gifts, I thought it might be fun to try and create a little notecard set using my stamps. I think that you could whip up a few of these to have on hand for whenever you need a last minute gift.
I started by stamping a pattern of sunflowers and stems onto a white panel in various ink colors. I used the Sunflower Fawndamental from Lawn Fawn as well as the Wild Rose from Lawn Fawn, and Cotton Candy from MFT. I didn’t want the centers to be as prominent, so I changed the center ink to Kraft by MFT for a more subtle look. I filled in the centers again with my white gel pen and added a sentiment strip from the Totally Happy MFT stamp set.
I slipped the finished cards into a clear box with some pink envelopes that matched my card. Around the clear box I added a band of green cardstock that I stitched a kraft scalloped strip onto. I love the way paper looks when you stitch it with your sewing machine! To the center, I added the happy mail seal from my stamp set stamped in Limelight Hybrid ink by MFT and added another stamped sunflower to the center. I think these make the perfect gift for your crafty friends who love sending out happy mail!
Project #3 // Hello Card
While flipping through a stamp company catalog I came across a card that featured a tiny flower just like the one on my stamp set. I thought it might be fun to recreate the same card, but using my flower instead.
To start, I cut a piece of white cardstock to be slightly smaller than my card base. I knew I wanted to add a little texture to the back so I stamped it with the MFT Linen background stamp in a light yellow ink. Then, I stamped three flowers in a circular pattern in various ink colors (Cotton Candy, Blu Raspberry, and Grape Jelly by MFT). Then I stamped the centers in a darker ink to create depth and dimension (Wild Rose by Lawn Fawn, Tropical Teal by MFT, and Juice Box by Lawn Fawn). To fill in the background, I also added a leaf stamp that I got off of my WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals stamp.
To finish off the card, I added a strip of paper that I stamped with the MFT Gingham background in Wild Rose ink. I added some turquoise twine and a little green tag that I stamped a sentiment on to.
Project #4 // Kraft Gift Bag
For my last project, I knew I wanted to create something that could be used as gift wrap or for a happy mail swap. I pulled out a kraft bag that I had from my stash and started brainstorming ideas for how I could decorate it.
I came up with the idea to have a few different bands of paper and other materials to create layers and interest. I started by creating a white band and stamping the flowers centers in a repeating onto it with various ink colors. I think the finished result looks like little confetti circles! Below that I added a crepe paper band that I sewed to have some ruffles on it. For the last band, I trimmed a piece of pink striped patterned paper and folded it around the bag.
To finish off the bag I wrapped some turquoise twine around the center multiple times and strung it through a green tag. On top of the tag I added my little happy mail seal stamp that I created and die-cut out of white paper. I think this adds an adorable finishing touch!
And that’s all of the projects I have to share with you today using my brand new Happy Mail stamp set! I am super to excited that it is finally available and ready for purchase in my online shop.
As promised, I have a whole design team that created projects using my stamp and you can click through the list below to see what they created!
