Love Sparkles Layout and Card

Here are the Love Sparkles projects I created (more to come):

*Sorry for the wonky photo – I didn’t have time/was too lazy to scan it in. 😉

All products used were directly from the Simply Scrappin’ kit. The three dots at the top were simply hole-punched with a standard office hole punch from one of the Chocolate Chip stickers included.

I also created a card with the Whisper White cardstock from the kit:

I used our Beautiful Wings Embosslits from the Holiday Mini (it’s still available!) and my new Perfect Details Texturz Plate Die for use in the Big Shot. I stamped the saying from Very Thankful (proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald Charities!) in So Saffron. Super quick and easy! I think this would be lovely as a wedding or shower thank you as well.

Have a great weekend! 🙂

Chocolate Bunnies

I LOVE this chocolate bunny! It’s only fitting… my day job is at a candy company! 😉 I have a bunch of mini gifts in the works with this little guy (yes, it’s a boy, lol) but wanted to share some of my new Chocolate Bunny Embellishments I have at my Etsy shoppe and how I made them.

I stamped these guys on Kraft cardstock twice – once in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink and once with Versamark and embossed him with clear embossing powder. I then carefully cut around him and applied a diminsional to the back. The bottom layer on the diminsional was left intact, and glued to a clear sheet (cut to size) so you just simply peel the bunny off the backing sheet and apply to your project. SIMPLE! Here are the products I used:

MamaBearStamps is on Etsy!

As an extension of my mission to make stamping and scrapbooking super simple I have opened a shoppe on Etsy! At http://mamabearstamps.etsy.com you’ll find hand-stamped and handmade embellishments, cards, and more. My embellishments already have foam tape applied to the back, so you can simply peel-and-stick for fast embellishments!

Check it out and let me know what you think! Looking for a specific theme or embellishment? Just let me know! 🙂

I hope you’re having a great week! Only one more until Spring Break (aka Mom’s Week Off!) here! 😉 ~T~

Create or Computer? The age-old question…

I’m not gone, I’ve just been creating instead of blogging! 🙂 Here are a few things I’ve been up to:

New Ribbon Storage

I wanted a fun and functional way to store my SU! ribbons so I used a couple Bell glass canning jars! I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the canning lids, threaded my ribbon through the holes and spun on the screw-top lid. Now they sit on my bookshelf and I can see at a glance what I have.

I wanted to make a Valentine’s banner, so I took my daughter’s old shoebox…

And used my Big Shot to cut out the backgrounds for my banner (using the Top Note die). I then die cut my Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper and Kraft cardstock with the same die.

Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper

I attached the paper to the box dies with adhesive. I bought a glitter “Love” banner a few years ago at Target and found the letters in my stash (I never throw away a good craft project ;)) and attached those to the die cuts with Sticky Strip. I then used my Crop-A-Dile (can you tell I love this thing??) to punch holes in the dies.

Next I stamped hearts from the I {Heart} Hearts set on Crushed Curry cardstock and embossed with White Stampin’ Embossing Powder.

I {Heart} Hearts by Stampin' Up!

After cutting out the letters I adhered them to the letters with Sticky Strip. I then threaded Melon Mambo Polka-Dot ribbon through and VOILA! A custom Valentine’s banner! 🙂

Remember that Stampin’ UP! will donate $2 from the sale of every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set to the American Red Cross. You can purchase this and hundreds of fabulous products by clicking on the link to your right.

Have a great Wednesday! 🙂

Howdy!

I'm Tammy Moore, a scrapbooking fanatic in Austin, TX. Thanks for stopping by my little space on the web. Feel free to contact me any time!

Why “Mama Bear Stamps”?

A few years ago my daughter and husband gave me the nickname "Mama Bear" and I've used it ever since! This year I even conqured my fear of needles and had the Chinese symbols of mother and bear tattooed above my right ankle. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to go by my nickname: Mama Bear. But you can call me Tammy if you'd like. :)
