Rita Barakat here today and I had the pleasure of working with: Planner Add On - Weather 1 Be My Guest stamp set Partly Cloudy DieAren't these tiny stamps adorable?!?
I had such a fun time with these products I made this canvas tag and used the stamps in my planner.
I am sure you keep a busy (crazy) schedule just like me! Add a few PITT® Artist Pens and Stamper’s Big Brush Pens with these weather stamps make keeping a schedule so much more fun! So how about a tutorial on the tag?
First I drew on the edges of this little canvas tag. I spread the color around with a wet paint brush and set aside to dry.
I used the die to cut out these sweet clouds and sun. I cover the clouds with Whipped Spackle to make them look light an fluffy!
I smashed a little Butter Cream and mixed it with Whipped Spackle for the sun. I used Texture Gems ™ to outline the edges.
I stamped the words "hello sunshine" directly on the little canvas, then added the sun and the clouds with a little Gel Medium. SUch a fun little project! We hope you can find time to create and make something today! To enter our $50 product giveaway, leave a comment here each day throughout the blog hop (May 12-14).
