Guest Blogger: Jess of KinderStampO


Me with Tim Holtz

My name is Jess but most of you may know me at KinderStampO. I am a paperaholic and a certified stamp lover.  I've been crafting my whole life and love sharing everything I learn with others.  I have my own line of vintage inspired sentiment stamps designed to work well with any of your crafty creations.
 
Today's project is a 3-D Tea Cup created using the Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die - Tea Cup, 3-D.  The paper collection is an Exclusive Sneak Peek of the soon to be released Authentique Papers Peaceful Collection and the sentiment is from the KinderStampO Vintage Halloween Stamp Set. You saw it here first : )

It's a fun little box that can be customized for any occasion.  Hope you enjoy it and I can't wait to see your version soon!
 
Live, Craft, Inspire...

  13. Oh My WORD. This is just Beyond Beautiful I just Adore it so and I know my Sister would too. I would love to Surprise her with one of these for her Upcoming Birthday, but unfortunately only have a Cuttlebug which I'm told will cut everything up to and including the Bigz dies but not the extra large. I'm wondering if there is any chance that you might be able to cut a couple of these dies out and sell them to me that way at your Website. In any case Beautiful work..........
