Stamp image with dark ink onto the bookpage. I like the looseness the acrylic colors so that not the entire area that you are stamping is covered with color. This allows some of the unpainted book page to peek through.

Vintage Snapshot Ornaments :: by Melody Nunez


Vintage Snapshot Ornaments
by Melody M. Nuñez
Featuring Little Miss Mason Stamps

rubber stamping
These vintage snapshot ornaments can be used in many different ways.  Consider hanging them on a Christmas tree, a found wooden branch, or around the necks of vintage glass bottles.  They’d make lovely tags, and could even be hung from the “branches” of a family tree you paint on the wall!

Begin by printing or copying the black and white images you’d like to use.  I printed digital copies onto regular copy paper with my home printer.  Crop the images into a square shape.  Mine vary slightly in size, but are 2 ¼” x 2 ¼” on average. 

rubber stamping
Glue the cropped image onto a thin piece of chipboard or a thick piece of cardstock that you’ve trimmed to the same size as the photo, using a glue stick to adhere the two pieces. 

Slide black photo corners onto each corner of your image – the front should lay on top of the image, and the back should lie on top of the chipboard or cardstock piece you attached to the photo.  Affix the back piece of each photo corner to the chipboard or cardstock with glue or a glue dot, ensuring they don’t shift or fall off. 

rubber stamping
Trim a piece of white cardstock to the same size as your photo.  Stamp the cardstock with a frame image from the Little Miss Mason stamp set, choosing a frame of appropriate size and shape.  Use an alphabet letter stamp to add information about the photo inside the frame, like the person’s name, date, or the occasion.  You can also write the information in, if you’d like.  Set this stamped piece aside. 

To make the hanger, attach the two ends of a piece of narrow black ribbon to the back of the photo/chipboard piece, using double stick tape.  The ribbon should be centered, and should extend down at least ½” from the top edge. 

rubber stamping
Finish the ornament by attaching the stamped piece of cardstock to the beribboned photo piece.  The back of the photo piece should be attached to the back of the stamped cardstock, sandwiching the ribbon in between. 

Please note: If you’re using digital copies of black and white/sepia photos and you have photo editing software like Photoshop, your images will look more uniform if you desaturate the images before printing them.  If you copy paper photos, you’ll get better results if you color copy them, though they’re black and white.

Little Miss Mason Ideas by Rachel Emilie Jackson


Ideas for using your Little Miss Mason stamps

by Rachel Emilie Jackson

{Featuring Little Miss Mason stamps}

-1

Fill a small jar with ready-stamped and cut out labels and keep it close at hand. Stamp labels of different sizes on leftover papers and lightweight card from other projects.

-2 Keep the jar in easy reach of ribbons, twine and other small trims. Make gift-wrapping hassle-free with unique, dainty tags for your parcels.

-3 Combine with message stamps (Everyday Expressions) or write your own sentiments and run the labels through a Xyron. Use them as seals for home-baked gifts or packed lunches.

-4 Combine delicate punch designs with the labels to make outstanding tags for special gifts.

-5 Stamp small patterns (Ordinary Sparkling Embellishments) on paper first, before stamping with labels. Cut them out to make pretty envelope seals for your festive mail. Alternatively, stamp the labels on patterned paper for bolder seal designs.

-6 Labels are also great for trapping elements to a card. Here, dried flowers are held in place with a stamped label for bearing some found text.

Little Miss Mason Holiday Ornaments by Melody M. Nuñez


Little Miss Mason Holiday Ornaments

by Melody M. Nuñez

{Featuring Little Miss Mason Stamps}

IMG_3414

This project is fun to make, doesn't require many supplies, and can be altered to suit different holidays or occasions. Hearts for Valentines? Shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day? Pumpkins for Halloween? The choice is yours! Consider decorating a small tree with these ornaments, stringing them on a garland, or using them as gift tags on extra-special gifts.

IMG_3419
Start by stamping the Mason jar image onto watercolor paper with permanent black ink. Draw or stamp the contents of the jar, and then embellish as desired. I drew a pine tree, candy canes, and gift boxes with a black pen and then added color with Caran d'Ache water-soluble crayons using a fine-tipped paintbrush. (Markers, gel pens, or colored pencils would be an excellent alternative if they're not what you have on hand.) I also used metallic gel pens to accent the tree ornaments and the gift box ornament.

IMG_3415

Once you're satisfied with the look of your ornaments, trim the excess paper from around the stamped edge of the Mason jar and attach a small piece of wire to the top back of the ornament to form a hanger. Hang or attach to your gift package and enjoy!

Free Motion Quilting Tutorial :: Stamped & Water-Colored Ornaments


Stamped & Water-Colored Ornaments by Jenny Doh

{Featuring Little Miss Mason Stamps}

IMG_3218 Stamp image onto muslin.

IMG_3204 Layer with batting and backing fabric and free motion quilt, changing top thread color for lid, jar, and label. (An alternative to free motion quilting is to hand embroider using embroidery thread and hand needle.) Cut stitched portion out.

IMG_3201 Apply a bit of color with watercolor pencil onto a wet paintbrush and apply the color onto the stitched piece.

IMG_3209 TIP: If at any time too much color goes on, just add more water to the stitched piece to dilute the color.

IMG_3212 Use a pin to poke holes at either side of the lid portion and attach a wire.

IMG_3214 Use the ornaments to adorn bottles, holiday tree, doorknobs, or gift packages.

Transparent Treasures


Transparent Treasures

by Cynthia Shaffer

{Featuring Little Miss Mason stamps}

IMG_1695

With black StazOn inkpad, stamp image of mason jar onto a piece of transparency. Trim. Cut another piece of transparency into a rectangular shape. Lay the stamped and trimmed transparency onto the rectangular piece of transparency and machine stitch around the image of the jar but leave the top portion unstitched. (Don't worry about stitching precisely on the jar line. A bit of imperfection adds character to the finished piece.) Encase this stamped transparent pocket with buttons, bits of ephemera.

IMG_1716
Sky's the limit in terms of what sort of treasures you elect to encase into the stamped transparent pocket. You can also consider using the stitched pocket with other embellishments to adorn a journal.
