Imagine Nation Monday & a Tutorial on how to use my Border Stamps! ~Episode 186

Good afternoon My Creative Friends! I had a late start today! Here is my project for Imagination Monday using my new cartridge "Buccaneer"! I just LOVE the patter papers that are included w/this cart! My card today is VERY SIMPLE. I used 2 of my stamp sets for it. The sentiment is from "So Grateful for You" and the background border stamp I used was  "Fun Borders"! For my video today, I demonstrate how to use my border stamp to get a perfect stamped image!  I've had a few emails & questions regarding this set, so I'd thought I would do a video to actually show you! Hope this helps out!;)

Here are the stamp sets I used for my card!

I hope you have a FABULOUS day!!! I will have the winners from my blog hop posted tomorrow as well as the winner from Miss Madison's birthday blog hop! Thank you for stopping by! xoxox's

  5. Awesome card,Emma!! the cute pirate! :)

  6. Such a cute card Miss Emma now i need to go shopping for more Imagine Cartridges. Thanks for getting my stamps to me so fast. I got them today in the mail. I love working more and more with my imagine but with the gypsy update and all it still has issues. Won't let me do anything with it. But Its great for printing Stampin Up paper and Papertrey Ink paper I have all the codes for their beautiful papers. (solid colors only) Tomorrow I will work with my new stamps. Hugss Victoria :)

  7. Very cool love that cart hope they make this for the regular Cricut....riiiight...LOL

    Smoochies :)

  8. Thankyou for the info on your stamps. You always make your imagin Monday generic. Love it. I also received my stamps this morning. So excited. Wow,Your just so fast in sending them. Thankyou

  9. Emma, I loved this project now I have to get that stamp set and the Cricut cartridge too! Thanks for the tutorial on how to best use your border/background stamps.

  10. Very cute card!!!! I don't have an Imagine, but I love that cart!!! And thanks for the video on the stamps...good tip!

  11. Cute card...and thank's for the tip using the foam. Recieved my stamps (My Favorite Sayings and My Little Firecracker and the Bonus one) in the mail yesterday (love them)can't wait to play!

  12. This card is soooo cute! I do love this cartridge and hope to get it soon, especially since you went over all of the pretty papers in your video! Another thing I've used with the background stamp is my mouse pad. That works well too.

  13. This is fabulous, Emma!! I love that image. My boys would go crazy for this card!!
    I've never heard the suggestion to use foam, but will have to give that a go! Thanks for the tip!

  14. Emma,
    I use one of my old mouse pads from my computer. Most of us have those right beside us and don't even realize it. I so love all the cards you make. I am hoping to start getting some of your stamps real soon.

  15. OMG, Emma this card is so stinkin cute. I love that little pirates face! I don't think I have ever seen that cart before. It is a must have for me. I always use a foam mat when I stamp. However your stamps work great without the mat as well. I had no problems at all with them and I did not even do that flip over thing you did. I use the same ink as you did as well. So I ordered some stamps on Friday for your new release, and holy fast shipping they came yesterday (Monday)! Tell your mom she is awesome. Emma, LOVE your new release;)


  16. Love your pirate card. Thanks for showing how to emboss and also the use of the foam for getting perfect images when stamping. Now I'll run downstairs and try it. OH..I ORDERED my stamps on Sat. and they arrived on Monday. WOW.. Grannie Hugs.

  17. So cute. Thanks for sharing the "stamping" technique. For those that don't have a foam for stamping you can use a magazine under the project your stamping.(I know you suggested pad papper). I use a mouse pad works wonderfully too.

    Also if you breathe on the stamp it keeps it wet for a few seconds.

    Thanks for all you do.


  18. Oh Emma what a great card. I LOVE that effect on the background paper, thanks for the tips! I always enjoy your videos, thank you! Hugs, Cathryn67 :)
