Clear Dollar Stamps Day 1 Stamp Previews Cont. - Fruity Fun with Tutorial

Hey everyone! Thanks for scrolling down :) This post is dedicated to super cute and fun new stamp set called Fruity Fun. I've got 2 things to share with you and a tutorial for one of those items. I'll share the card set first and I have to tell you that even though it is simple, I love these little notecards.

This would be something that you could mass produce forever and just hand them out to everyone! I used 4x4 cards and just the strawberry stamp. I love that one. Once you've stamped the strawberry on all your cards, all you have to do is get the sentiment in place and just keep stamping. The alignment will work the same for all your cards.

For the sentiment, I place my stamps where I want them on the card and then gently lay my acrylic block over the stamps. Now, each time I stamp they will be perfectly positioned.


Now on to my next project. I actually created this little candy holder based on a sketch that Laurie Wilson sent to all the DT members.I used a ton of different colors, but I love the bright and fun dp I created and it just seemed perfect for the Pixie Stiks that I had.

Start with a piece of cardstock that measures 3.75" x 10.5"
Along the 10.5" side score at 1/2" and 3.5"

Next, turn your cardstock and along the short side score at 1.5" and 2"

Cut inward where shown in the picture below.

Cut circles (your choice of size) these circles are approximately 2 1/2".
Fold in half and use a bone folder to create your crease.

Next, line up your center fold along any scoring line and then score 1/2" on the right side for one circle and 1/2" on the left side for the other circle.

Finish and decorate the front flap of the candy holder.

Then attach your circles so that they wrap from back to the front following score marks.

Punch holes and tie together with ribbon.

So there you have it. You can see some more great examples of this fun set with Lori and Candy, Laurie, Tori, and Linda

And finally, there is one more set being previewed called May Lily of the Valley. You can see previews of this stamp HERE and HERE.

And finally, its that time again for your chance to get a Guest Designer spot for CDstamps. All the details can be found on Lori's blog HERE.
