Hey cardmaking friends, welcome back. It’s Craft Your Stash 3 today. It’s supposed to be Thursday, but I have another post I have to go live that day, so I moved this one ahead. For today’s cards (yes there are two), I dug around in the now double containers of “Purchased but not used” products and came up with 4 items to use today. Two of the cutest Colorado Craft Company stamps, little Mini Anita Jeram stamps, Be Creative Mini and ice Cream Day Mini.
Because these stamps are small, I need something for the background to balance out the images. I chose Simon Says Stamp stencils, Fading Hearts and Geometric.
These are super clean and simple cards and each took less than 10 minutes to create so they qualify for my “10 minutes to WOW cards. If you are new to stamping, or just have a few minutes to create a little masterpiece for a friend, these fit the bill.

Products Used for the Craft Your Stash 3 cards
Craft Your Stash 3 Card #1
Start by placing the 2 x 2 piece of white cardstock inside the Misti on the Sticky Mat.
Next, ink with the Intense Black Ink
Then, color the image with Copic Markers and Cut out with the coordinating die.
Next, place the card front into the Misti on the Sticky Mat. Dry fit the art piece in the bottom left corner just to help with placement of the other elements.
Next, stamp the sentiment in black ink.
Then, lay the Fading Hearts Stencil over the piece. NOTE; the sticky mat will hold your stencil in place for you while you work.
Next, use Simon Says Stamp Inks and small blending brushes to ink up the hearts in: Carnation, Seafoam, Lemonade and Sprout
Attach the card front to the top folding A2 card base with foam tape
Finally, use small foam squares to attach the little mouse art piece in the bottom left corner.
Craft Your Stash 3 – Card #2
The steps are the same for card 2. Just change out the stencil to the Geometric one.
Color the ice cream with copic markers and then apply Glossy Accents over the ice cream part to make it shiny.
