'Blog War' Day 5 - Magic Stamp & Weekly Comment Winner


We live by the beach, so there is many shells around the house. Here I have used one with the Magic Stamp. I have then stamped it onto white card, trimmed adhered to black card, then mounted it onto the white card. I stamped the Shell Border stamp at the bottom of the card. I used Ancient Page Coal Black ink pad. I tore down the right side of the card & edged it with a light shading of Vintage Photo distress ink.

'Blog War' Day 4 - Magic Stamp



What FUN my son had, he is (10) & just loved pressing a few of his toys into the Magic Stamp, creating some wonderful moulds & images. A great activity for the school holidays & it has been pouring with rain here, kept him busy inside all day.

The Magic Stamp comes in a pack of eight for $15.95. You could try molding surface patterns from crumpled up paper, rice grains, bark, shells, wood, jewellery, buttons, fabric - even an old pair of denim jeans.

Check out the (2H) Workshop link to the right of screen. Workshop 2H091 Magic Stamp Jeans 12 x 12 Layout, created by Sonya Edwards, uses the Magic Stamp molded by a pair of denim jeans.

'Blog War' Day 3 - Magic Stamp


Today my 10 year old son (Tyler) become involved with the Magic Stamp. It's a great product for children to use, he just loved it. He helped me create a couple more kids birthday cards I will post tomorrow.

Tyler coiled a piece of craft wire (Non - Kaszazz) & molded it onto the Magic Stamp. We used this to create the base colour on the right hand side of the card, we used the Peach Pastel Fluid Chalk ink pad. I used the Long Stem Daisies with the Magic Stamp, stamped it, cut out & mounted onto a piece of Pinecone SB Bazzill over Black, Orange Stitch & White Dots ribbon. I stamped the Long Stem Daisies with the Magic Stamp & across the top of the card with Blush Rose Fluid Chalk. Finished by adding a little Ice Stickles to the daisies & stamped the words in Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk.

Cheers, Tina

'Blog War' Day 2 - Magic Stamp


Today I have used both of the Brushed Roses from the Kaszazz 2-Step Stamp  Range, with the Magic Stamp. I inked up the Magic Stamp with Faded Jeans Distress Ink pad, then stamped over the front of a white card. I stamped (4 ) 2-Step Roses across another piece of white card, using Iced Blue Fluid Chalk & Faded Jeans Distress ink. Trimmed to size & adhered to a piece of Glitz Bazzill Bling & then adhered to front of the card. Finished with "Get Well Soon" from the Mini Messages Stamp Set (9), a piece of White Swirl ribbon & the heart charm from the Girl Things Charms. The charms are a great new product, which can be found on the back page of the March 09 new product flier.

Cheers, Tina

'Blog War' Day 1 - Magic Stamp

The product of the week for the Blog War is the "Magic Stamp". With this mouldable foam stamp you can mould & re-mould an endless variety of textures & objects onto your craft projects. Mould a variety of designs in 4 easy steps.

Step 1 - Heat Magic Stamp with an Embossing Heat Tool for about 30 seconds.

Step 2 - Press heated Magic Stamp against any cool, textured or dimensional surface. Hold down for 15 - 20 seconds.

Step 3 - Ink with any water based ink pad or paint.

Step 4 - Moulded image is very durable, but will 'melt away' when reheated - ready for your next surface design!

You can find more information about the ColorBox Magic Stamp, ColorBox Mouldable Stylus Tips & ColorBox Stylus Moulding Mats between page 83 - 85 of the Kaszazz Catalogue & Project Book.

Today I used the Large Frangapani Outline Stamp with the Magic Stamp. I inked it up with Maroon Fluid Chalk. Stamped, re-inking after each stamp down the centre of a piece of Madero Beach cardstock, from the Neutrals Card Pack. Other products I used include, polka-dot brad, small retro flower punch, pink pastel fluid chalk, greeting set stamps (4), SB Bazzill Juneberry. I finished by distressing the edges with the Maroon Fluid Chalk. I have also used a STAMP IT Stamp in black. Sorry this stamp is no longer available through Kaszazz, but I love it!! Couldn't resist.

Cheers, Tina



I found this FUN little quiz link at -

Click on the link below, fill in a little quiz & find out WHAT SCRAPBOOKING ITEM you are?

I AM GLUE of course a Kaszazz Glue, either a Glue Stick or Glossy Accents. Scary... I am definately a giver not a taker!!


You are GLUE!
You are the adhesive that keeps things together. You go through life helping others. You stick to people and try to keep people together. You like it best when you are surrounded by people and able to help them. But Glue Beware - in your efforts to keep everyone together and with you, you sometimes overlook yourself and find it hard to keep yourself together. Don't neglect personal time in your overwhelming need to socialize and help others.

What Kaszazz item are you?

Cheers, Tina

'Blog War' Day 4 - Ebony & Ivory


Ok, today I didn't quite get the result I was looking for. I know my idea could look so much better. I managed to create a flower using the Diamond from the Ebony & Ivory Stamp Set (7) to be the petals. I then used another from the set to create the grass, & the stem. I used the Jewel Tones Pearlesence Chalks to shade a nice shimmer over the stem & around the flower. I added a Rub-on Bling for the centre of the flower. Finished with a little Ice Stickles & "It's Your Birthday" from the Mini Messages Endearments Set & "Enjoy" from (ATC) Artist Trading Card Set.

Cheers, Tina

'Blog War' Day 1 & 2 - Ebony & Ivory

This week Blog War Theme is Ebony & Ivory. This includes both the Ebony & Ivory Scrapbook Paper range & the Ebony & Ivory Stamp set (7).

I had fun last night creating all 5 creations for the week. Here are the first 2 below.


I just love the 2 of the new products in the March 09 New Product Flier, Mini Messages Endearments & Elegant Inspirations Bling Rub-ons. I have used them on my cards this week.


I am very fond of my Gold Paint Dabber at the moment. I seem to be using it all the time. Here I have stamped 2 stamps from the Ebony & Ivory Set onto a 6 x 12" piece of Black/Cream Circle SB Paper, I have folded it to create a card. One design I stamped with the Gold Paint Dabber & the other with Frost White Color Box Ink Pad. I stamped the 3rd with Charcoal Fluid Chalk onto a piece of Cordtone Cream from the Neutrals Card Pack. I cut out Mother & Thank you from the Definitions/Spots SB Paper, & added a rub-on & the bling.

Cheers, Tina

April Workshop

Below is my version of my April (2H) Workshop which I taught on Friday night.

Old Bear 12 x 12 Layout created by Rebecca Marsh.


I made some changes as I don't have the Old Bear stamp, so I used Becky Bear instead. Also my photo's were in portrait instead of landscape, so I placed them over the pinecone cardstock, instead of it bordering the photo's. I love these pages, you can't see it in the photo, but the Pearlescent Jewel Tones Chalks give my pages the most beautiful shimmer.

Kaszazz have 5 great Chalking Sets, you can find them on page 62 of the Kaszazz Catalogue & Project Book, or page 64  following the Catalogue link to the right of screen.

Cheers, Tina

With the kids on school holiday's, & a beautiful friend of mine passing away on Easter Monday, my routine is so out of whack!! We had a fabulous time away camping, and the weather was perfect. Check out the view from out campsite.

I now have some photo's perfect for our Tree Friends Stamp, which was one of our new stamps in the Jan 09 New Product Flier. The kids spent alot of time up in the trees around camp. The photo is of my youngest son Tyler (10), I call him my little "Crikey".

I coloured the bunny & also shaded the white card in pink with the basic brights chalk set. I  stamped the eggs a second time onto an off cut of "My Girl" SB paper, cut out a couple of pieces of the eggs & magic mounted the pieces onto the eggs. I finished by magic mounting the bunny, adding a piece of ribbon & distressing around the edge of the card.
