MAGIC STAMP (PoW) - Project 3

Hi everyone,

SSsssssssshhhhhh....don't tell DH but I have been raiding his tool box today in preparation for today's card.

I have impressed some nuts and bolts (borrowed from DH) into the Magic stamp and inked it in Ancient Page Palm Leaf Ink (72089) onto white card, matted onto Raven Bazzill (4224) added some Silver Brads (4602), then matted image onto Oatmeal base Card (9785). Spanner was made with Script SB Paper (4748) from Kaszazz Flourish Range and using the Circle Punches. Stamps used were Min Messages (006KK) and Stitched Borders Set (4117KM). I made the base card to resemble a tradesman's toolbelt.

I have created a workshop using punches with a simular design to this one.. hoping it gets accepted.
I also forgot to add that I used the small Daisy Punch and cut the centre points to create the star shape.

P.S. Nuts and Bolts have been returned to DH's tool box

MAGIC STAMP (PoW) - Project #2

Hi all,

Here is today's project.... As we are using the Magic Stamp this week, and the items to impress are endless,I am aiming to use items that everyone has around the home so you can also give it a try.

Well todays technique has got to be a definitely "MUST TRY" by everyone..I think the effect this gives is just absolutely gorgeous. I have created an ATC (Artist Trading Card) I didn't add too much detail to the card as I wanted to show off the background. Of course you can attach the ATC to a card base and create a card

After heating the Magic stamp I impressed it into a pile of rubberbands and this is the result after inking the stamp.

The impressed image was inked using Prussian Blue Fluid chalk onto ATC size white card, then edged the card with Blue Iris Chalk ink. The Iris Stamp from the Spring Time Set (4112KO) and Greeting Set #3 were stamped in Ancient Page Coal Black (72010).

This definitely has "WOW" factor ....What do you think?

MAGIC STAMP (PoW) - Project 1

Here I am...back again, with today's project.

This week is going to be a great and new experience for me as I have only recently added it to my kit and have never used it before...

I kind of got hooked on playing with this products today, trying out different things to impress and then stamped them onto a scrap piece of paper.

Today's card...I have impressed some lace and buttons, then inked the image randomly in 3 colours starting with the lightest colour first - Ice Blue, Blue Iris and Dark Peony Fluid Chalk.

The mauve and blue circles at the top represent buttons I used the medium circle punch and the small circle punch and then put holes using the Silent Setter, and added a bit of organdy ribbon.

This weeks winner for leaving a comment on my blog last week is....Keta...If you would like to contact me here with your details I will send out your prize.

Happy Stampin'

This weeks PoW (Product of the week) is the "Magic Stamp" - Moldable Stamp -product can be found on page 85 of Kaszazz current catalogue.

You create your own stamps by molding and remolding the foam block, they are great to use as backgrounds or a main image, children and adults alike will love making their own stamps using this product ..of course adult supervision is a must when children are using the heat gun.

The images remain until block is reheated..So why not buy in bulk you get 144 stamp blocks (10200), perfect for schools an economical way to buy for yourself and share with friends

Besides impressing the stamps you already own the surface patterns are endless, just by using a variety of items everyone has in and around their home for example, try molding patterns from crumpled up paper, rice, keys, bark,, clothes pegs, leaves, raffia or straw, shells, wood, soles of shoes, jewellery, charms, rubber bands, buttons, money (coins), fabric - even an old pair of denim jeans. We (Kaszazz) have a fabulous 2 hour Workshop (2h091 -Magic Stamp Jeans layout) available, created by Sonya Edwards. In this workshop you create two 12 x12 layouts using the jeans technique.

Kaszzaz also sell a large variety of Molding Mats (as seen on page 84 current catalogue) which are ideal for impressing a wide variety of textures into the Magic Stamp foam and also the Stylus Moldable Tips (page 83).
Impressing objects with the Magic stamp gives a reverse impression of an object (s) used.

Magic Stamp is easy to use:

1. Heat stamp with an Embossing Heat Tool (1013) page 64, for about 30 seconds.

2. Press heated Magic Stamp against any cool, textured or dimensional surface. Hold down for 15 - 20 seconds.

3. Ink with any water based ink pad or paint.

4. Molded image is very durable,but will "melt away" when reheated - ready for your next surface design.

Chinese Take-A-Way Box Template

Several people have asked about a template for the Chinese Take Away Box I created last week (here)....

I have some bad news and some good news.

Firstly the bad news, I atually dismantled a box I bought a while ago from a craft store and traced around it to create my template. I'm not sure how to downsize the pattern and put it on my blog or even how to put it into a document file.... but..

Now the good news...

If you are a Kaszazz consultant (which some of you are) there is a Take-Away box Template in our 5PQ - 008 Cheeky Gift Boxes Workshop - which is very very simular.

Or.... Any one can download a free template simular size and design to what I used from Mirkwood Designs, it also has the assembly instructions on the site ..

Just a tip to score about a 3/4" down on the flaps that arn't marked with "A" and put in holes to be able to tie the ribbon to hold the top closed, like I have. I didnt glue or stick down the side "C" Flaps I punched holes and held in place using brads.

Here is a clickable link to the FREE template:

3d PROJECTS (PoW) - Project 1

Hi all,

I hope you had a great weekend and a fabulous Easter (and didnt eat too many choccy eggs).

My past week hasn't been so fortunate... early Tuesday morning my dad was rushed to hospital via ambulance, as mum described it, he was thrashing about (as though he was having a fit) throwing himself out of bed hitting the cupboard and floor, gasping for air, he was also unconscious ....After many test and scan, he was later diagnosed as having a Brain Seizure, he is slowly recouperating but doesnt remember any of that day, fingers crossed he will be fine..Was/is a very scary time for us all.

Then early hours of Saturday morning my cousin Gary passed away (he was only a year or 2 older than me- (early 40's) .

Well enough of the sad stuff and onto todays PoW. This weeks PoW (Project of the Week) is 3d Projects.

I have created a gorgeous little Peek-a-Boo Gift Box using Flower Frenzy SB Paper (4685) Oh-la-la Papers and Fussy Bazzill. I made this for a friend and will fill it with chocolates but it would also make a great gift bag for any small item.

I used a template I purchased from a craft Fair made by Darcies. After tracing and cutting pattern, I cut a hole in the front using the Oval Curvy Cutter (EKCC07) and covered the hole with Acetate(6238). I trimmed with some white ribbon (70372) Pink Daisy (4696) and 13mm Rhinestone (4557). I stamped "Thank You" from Mini Messages Stamp Set(006KK) in Dark Peony Fluid Chalk onto a Punched Circle and distressed the edge to create the tag.

Rollagraph (PoW) - Day 4

Hello All,

Todays card is a 3d effect, and looks stunning (well I think so). Photo doesn't do the the card justice.

I stamped the "Four Flowers" jumbo wheel 3 times onto white card stock - using Ancient Page Black Ink so I could colour the flowers with Lyra AquacolorCrayons(4540)...I trimmed around the border of the wheel on one layer (bottom layer) then I trimmed each flower on another layer (layer 2) then the last one I trim just the centre of the flowers (layer 3).

I coloured the flowers on each layer the same then Magic Mounted each layer then matted this onto Black card and then Parakeet Bazzill. This was matted onto 8 x 8 white Card. I add stamped "Thinking of You" from Mini Messages Set(006KK), then added Glossy Accents (4208)to the centre of the flowers.

Below is a close up of the flowers showing the 3d effect.

***Dont forget to leave your comment on any PoW post for a chance to win this weeks prize.

Good Luck

Happy Stamping

Rollagraph (Pow) - Day 3

Hi allAdd Image

Today is a very memorable and exciting day for me, not because its April Fools Day.......but because I got notification that the 4 project cards I submitted to Kaszazz have been accepted as Demonstration Projects...woohooo......

..... ...and............

I have been in Queensland 1 year today (I moved from SA).....Yes April Fools Day. Its hard to believe I have been here one year already, how time flies, and people said I wouldn't make it.

Now to todays project...

I gave myself a bit of a challenge today, I created a box with a flip lid using origami fold....great to put keepsakes in, photos, a mini fold album or even cards and given as a gift...It ties up with a ribbon on the side and the top flap opens like a book cover......half of the challenge was deciphering the instructions..well they were not written instructions ..but diagrams.

The rollagraph "Modern Butterflies" (26123) Jumbo Wheel was used around the edge of the inside part of the box..The Jumbo wheel was the perfect height for the edge of the box..... Of course I stamped the Bazzill before I folded it. I used Lyra Aquacolor Crayons to colour the butterflies(4540)

I used 1 1/2 sheets of Petunia (4400)12 x 12 Bazzill , half a sheet of Circle Dragonflies (47650) SB Paper 12 x 12 from our Gelati Range, some white card for decorating and some ribbon from 'Snow White" range (9599)., Glossy Accents, Dreams Vellum Quote (4410) "Life stamp (4131KI)

Of course you dont have to use a rollagraph on this box you can have the Bazzill plain or use double sided paper. The finished dimensions of the box are approximately 13cm x 13cm and 6 cm depth.

Pictures arnt as good as they should be as I had to rush them, As hubby got all romantic he had a special meal organised at the dining table with all the fine heirloom dishes and cutlery, the works....... (spoilt).

Here is the side view of the box showing the rollagraph wheel used.... the tricky part was to , make sure the butterflies ended up being the right way up when the Bazzill was folded.

This is inside of the box - lid open

This is the top view of the box

Don't forget to leave a comment to be in the draw for this weeks prize.

Check out all the other great creations for the other blog war participants...List is on the right hand side menu.

Til tomorrow...Happy Stamping
