Love .. Love .. Love WRMK

I just recently bought WRMK Precision Press  Stamping Tool from CraftWorld after reading so many fab reviews…Where has this tool been since I started !!

I know there are other varieties of this stamping tool out there and I am not going to make any comparisons as I don’t own any others nor would it be right of me to do so.

So what made me buy this ? I suffer from Tennis & Golfers elbow and after a while I get excruciating pains and have to stop, Not any more with this handy tool. I must admit my stamping is now so much better and so much easier. There are so many pro’s for this product…. Light, Compact. perfect stamping, can easily re ink an image if not correct and not have to worry about lining stamp up, layer stamps, card did not move when stamping …need I go on ?

If anyone is thinking about getting this or any other stamping tool my advice is DO IT !

It was so easy to stamp and I did 50 Wish Jar Little Notes within approx 2 hours from scratch.

A Little Note ….

I have a Wish Jar to make for a Christening soon and coming up for a design was baffling me as really did not want the traditional “baby” stamps or dies on the tags. After looking through Google it then hit me … Scribbled Flowers !

This was my first mock attempt and although I am pleased with them I do however have 50 …yes 50 tags to make ! I will be so happy when my WRMK Precision Press arrives as be able  to make 50 tags all with same design.

I then decided to keep playing around with this set and made this A Little Note Card

Morning Makes

Well as I had today off I decided to be bit more creative.

I have seen so many gorgeous cards being made by fab creative people that do inspire me but the image in my head does not always appear as end result – How many others have this problem ? So frustrating even when i follow guides but I must not let this get me down as still a newbie.

Did a couple of cards, just love the CBS Lets Prance and Elves stamp set. My colouring is getting there and I must admit I do enjoy using Prismacolor pencils. Only thing I wish I could of changed was background on the Elves card, but I know next time to do this.

The tags I had problems with as i just could not get my Inking to be solid, even though I tried the Versamark trick. So anyone who has tips please let me know.

Anyway here are my morning makes …. any feedback much appreciated as always

As you know I got some fab goodies for my birthday, as I had free day I finally got around to trying the gorgeous Spellbinders Sapphire  Mini Die Cutting Machine out.

I made 4 tags ( 2 christmas and 2 wish jar baby shower tags )

What do you think ? I was pleased as I also attempted to use a fab little tip I found on Clearly Besotted website regarding How to Align Stamps

I do not have a glue tape pen so good old fashion pritt stick did the job when sticking the paper to tag

Wish Jar Part 2

Remember my previous post of WISH JARS ?

Well I have finally finished my home made one at a fraction of the cost they sell for.
I bought the jar for £2.50  and printed out  jar label and A4 display poster.
Tags I admit were bought but I did get 50 for £5 as they look much better than what I could make….
Then I had a brainwave and looked on Ebay where I got rubber stamps, ink pads & lovely tag cards for future use as have a couple more jars to make …

Wish Jars

I came across these Wish Jars when someone I follow on twitter posted they had one for a Baby Shower

How different are these ? I love them as can be for any occasion – Baby Shower, Wedding, Christening …
BUT have you seen how much these sell for  £15 – £20 !
I am pretty sure these can be made much cheaper, after all, all you need need is a jar, possibly from £1 shop or even a empty candle jar ( yankee candle may work well ) , some ribbon and make the label  ( for jar lid ) and tickets yourself and print….Voila.. a home made Wish Jar at a fraction of the cost
Well I am going to have a go at this as already have a template ready to print 🙂
The image below is not my handy work but gives you an idea how simple they are to make
