Today I’m sharing these fun little lip gloss holders using Whimsie Doodle digital stamps, and the Top Note die from Stampin Up. These work up REALLY fast and make a great little treat to give out for Valentine’s Day (perfect for teachers!). If you don’t own the Stampin Up Top Note die, there are a bunch of digital cut files for your Cricut or Silhouette that are very similar – there’s so many variations you could do!
Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post, as I have a video tutorial on how to make these…plus I’ve included a bit of instruction on using Whimsie Doodle stamps, too!
I printed these Valentine Messages stamps on various colors of cardstock and then punched them out with a 2″ circle punch. I only added a small amount of color here & there with my Copic markers…but not much! Really quick and easy to do.
here’s a look at what’s inside…a single stick of (holiday themed, LOL) lip gloss. It was all I had on hand…but hey, it’s February and there’s still plenty of snowman hanging around during February…right?! 😉
I’ve also had many MANY inquiries on how Whimsie Doodles stamps work, what they are, how I download & print them, etc. – I put together the first part of this video to help some of you out. If I can, I may try and do another video to show more options for using these digital stamps. Let me know what you think and if you find this video helpful – or if you have any questions! I can try and address them in a future blog post or video for you. Thanks!!
I’m sharing yet another DIY Christmas present…some handmade photo coasters…courtesy of Pinterest, of course!
I followed this pinned tutorial and put a few sets of these together for loved ones. They were SO super easy to make (I know I always say that, but I really mean it this time!) I simply made prints from my local CVS (glossy or matte finish, doesn’t matter) and cut them down to fit my tiles. I found my tiles at Lowes – they cost 34 cents a piece. You can’t beat that! I used Modge Podge to adhere down, coated the top a few times with Modge Podge, and finished them off with several coats of the Modge Podge Matte finish sealer. My only advice is to use that stuff in a well ventilated space. It’s messy…and stinky…!
Here’s the final result. Brooke’s Auntie just loved getting these personalized coasters. I figure that as the years go on I can update her collection with more recent photos. Fun!
for those of you looking for those last minute items to fill up the stockings, I have the perfect solution for you:
I used the “cozy toes” digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles to create a tag to wrap around a new pair of socks. This is a great way to wrap up something boring but make it cute & festive! (just simple coloring with Copics, no shading blending – quick & easy)
You can check out more new releases and samples of Whimsie Doodle stamps on the blog. Also, I’ve had a few questions on how to print & use these stamps. I am working on putting together a tutorial for that soon. So stay tuned! 🙂
