Book Stamp Set

Hi, this is Rebecca. Welcome to the weekend, and Happy Memorial Day for us US folks!

Today I have some quick cards, made quicker with the new Book Stamp Set!

First, a confession: I am not a talented, experienced stamper. I am an occasional stamper with some pretty basic stamping supplies. I love to look at all the lovely card stamp work around here, but I’m usually more likely to use my own ink for a messy background than a clean card front. But I have to tell you, these stamps stamped so cleanly! I was worried about my skill at getting a good, photographable impression on the large oval, but it (along with the other stamps in the pack) worked great for me without any extra prep.

This first card also uses Book Washi TapeBook Brads, and Pearl Bling Strips. Quick and easy!

Then for a second quick card, I stamped a few books to coordinate with this cross-stitched piece (it was on my desk waiting for a use, and this card seemed like a good time). Just added a few Jewel Bling pieces, and done.

And finally, I went bright to coordinate with the bright color Book Brads. A few Enamel Hearts and coordinating Washi (herehere and something similar here ) made this one a quick project, too.

The Book Stamp Set is now available on the site, along with 15 other all new Stamp sets that coordinate with other Eyelet Outlet Brads, washi and more. We’re so excited to have these coordinating stamps, and I can’t wait to use them with some scrap pages, too!

Risk the Cooties!

TGIF crafty friends!  Susie here with another ATC*!

Feeling a little flirty?   Here's a card to share if you are "willing to risk the cooties"! This card features my favorite *new* brads from the Eyelet Outlet May 2018 Release - a pair of champagne glasses! Time to play...

This card started by pairing a Julie Nutting doll (mini-Megan from the Calendar Musts planner stamp set by Prima) with one of the many funny sentiments from the Life Words stamp set from Stampendous. I started by stamping the image and sentiment on watercolor paper and  then pulled out the paints.

Time to add a little dimension so I reached for the *new* Wedding Brads! They come in a 12 pack mix of rings and champagne glasses. (Here's a tip: Try topping the ring brads with a clear rhinestone and you have a beautiful diamond ring! Perfect for an engagement card, right?!) 
Add pair of champagne glasses above the sentiment...and a few rhinestones below...done!

Be sure to check out all the new brads being released this month HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie

Thirsty for Eyelet Outlet Drink Brads!

We're so excited that the new brads are available now at the Eyelet Outlet Store!

Today I'm showing you the new Beer Brads set.  Using my Cricut Maker, I decided to use a combination of print-then-cut as well as paper piecing on this barmaid image from Cricut's Autumn Creations cartridge.  I flattened all layers except the gold and white then went ahead and used some strategically placed pop dots on her blouse to make up for it!  LOL!  😉

Next up, since it's "Throw Back Thursday," I thought I'd do a recreation of this card I showed you a few months back that features "Joan" from Cricut Suburbia cartridge having an Eyelet Outlet Cocktail!  

Here's "Allen," also from Cricut Suburbia cartridge, out on the town with an Eyelet Outlet Beer Brad! 

Thanks for stopping in today and if you've worked up a thirst for Eyelet Outlet drink brads, you can find them at Eyelet in our "Food & Drink" section!

Go Nuts for Donuts! ♥

It's no secret that I (Lauren) am a huge fan of Eyelet Outlet's Donut Brads. And a few weeks ago, I found an awesome Donut Washi Tape in the EO store that pairs perfectly with them. So you can only imagine my joy when the new line of Eyelet Outlet Clear Stamps included a set called "Donut Stamps". Obviously I had to use all of those fine products together, right?!'

For my first card, I stamped the sentiment, "I DONUT know what I'd do without you" on some soft pink paper in black ink, and a second time on scrap paper with dark brown.

The latter version I fussycut, and mounted over the background on tiny strips of foam tape, just for a little bit of added dimension. I affixed one of each of the three flavors of Donut Brad onto a matted square of dark brown paper and layered them onto the card over a strip of Donut Tape.

My second card features the fun donut stamp from the set. I used it to make a background by stamping it repeatedly in Archival ink on watercolor paper, then coloring with water-based markers that I brushed with a little water for a looser effect. I added the sentiment, "DONUT ever give up" inside a diecut label shape and adorned it with a Donut Brad and a Heart.

Need more inspirational ways to use the brand new line of Eyelet Outlet Clear Stamps? The design team provides daily inspiration here on the blog, on FacebookInstagram and Pinterest... and we add new projects all the time, so check back often! ♥

Let's Get Cooking

Hi!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.

One of the new clear stamp sets by Eyelet Outlet has a cooking theme.  It coordinates with quite a few brads including Cooking, Baking, Cupcake, and Cookies.  I bet you could think of a few more, too.

On this card, I stamped the image on the scalloped rectangle with purple ink.  I stamped it again on turquoise and gray in black. I cut around the outside of the colored cardstock ovens.  To provide some dimension I cut the center from the turquoise piece and layered that over the gray.  Do you remember the good old days when stoves were actually made in this color?

I attached the cookie tin on the oven rack and filled it with Pink Pearl Bling.  I thought a cute touch would be to attach the oven mitt on the tray and Black Pearl Bling as the knobs.  To adorn the sides of the panel, I used two sizes of Pink Pearl Bling.  On the lower corners of the center step card, I added cupcake.  I didn't share the inside of the card as I wanted to showcase the stamp, but it says, "one cupcake at a time"

With the second stamp, I paired it with the oven mitt and cookie tray.  I think it would have worked equally well with the pan.  I think the Cactus Washi Tape would be a cute combo with it as well.  If you're interested, the card base I made was from a cut file in the Silhouette store.  I reminded me of an oven rack.

I'm looking forward to using the remaining stamps in the set and also seeing what the rest of the design team does as well.  Stay tuned for future posts featuring the other new sets!

Air Mail

Hi Friends! kel here today to share a quick but pretty thank you card!

This Red White Blue Stripe washi tape in the Eyelet Outlet store reminded me of air mail and sending happy mail! So I wanted to make a card using it so that I could send a quick but simply decorated thank you card! I even lined the envelope with a strip of this Red White Blue Stripe washi tape to match!! And I dug through my stash and found this super cute paper airplane stamp along with this perfectly matched sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by today and see you again soon!!

Red White and Boom!

Happy Saturday! It’s show season, so an extra hello welcome to anyone in Syracuse at this weekend’s Too Much Fun Rubber Stamp Show. Please stop by and say hello while you shop!

This is Rebecca, and my project today is an extension of yesterday’s Instagram Hop with The Project Bin. You can still take the hop on Insta - just start at @eyeletoutlet and look for the hop logo:

The designers for both The Project Bin and Eyelet Outlet came up with some terrific cards and projects using a mix of both brands. Check it out, leave comments and possibly win one of the $25 prizes!

For the hop I used the Red White and Boom set for a not-so red, white and blue card. A few EO dots, and the firecracker stamp became firecracker flowers.

But today I thought I’d use the same stamp set in a little more traditional way. A mix of the stamps, along with EO washi and bling made a background for a 4th of July scrap page.

Summer Fun with The Project Bin

Eyelet Outlet is hopping along with The Project Bin over on Instagram and we invite you to join in, follow along and comment for the chance to win prizes!  I will share the details at the end of this post.

TGIF crafty friends. My project today is a little out of the box. Okay, actually, it is a box!  Turns out if you take a really cool stamp set and mix in some themed washi tape and brads you can create a pretty sweet little trinket box!

I started with Anchors Away from The Project Bin, a set of 5 clear stamps with nautical sayings ranging from inspirational to humorous on a 4"x6" storage sheet!

The sailing theme made me want to work with natural materials.  I had some adhesive cork sheets in my inventory so I adhered it to mat board before I die cut and assembled my box and then inked the edges with brown ink. I almost did a happy dance when I realized the Wide Land and Sea Washi Tape was the perfect size to cover the sides of the box!

When I started playing with the stamps I realized the "eat SAIL sleep repeat" sentiment fit perfectly in the opening of the trinket box (time for another happy dance!).  I love every opportunity to add dimension  so I accented the stamped sentiment with a pair of  black enamel dots before sprinkling Sandcastle Brads and Seagull Brads around the oval opening.

Here is a good view of the sides of the assembled box with the Wide Land and Sea Washi tape. I used the Ship Wheel Brad as part of the closure, looping elastic cording over that and then hooking it onto a hitch fastener I had placed on the side.

Just like a card, it is always nice to make the inside look as special as the outside.

On the reverse side of the lid I added a 3"x4" card.  This time I stamped on the cork and the image is still nice and crisp!  I added Shell Brads and more washi tape - do you see the Rope Washi across the top?

And finally, the bottom of the box holds another sentiment stamped onto cork.

So what should I put in this little trinket box?  Perhaps a little salt water taffy?

And now it is time to head over to the 
Instagram Hop with The Project Bin!
