Cell Phone Fun

>> Thursday, November 16, 2017


I'm extremely excited about my post this week!  It all started last week when I tried to order a new cell phone case.  I had one last year with Christmas ornaments on it, but upgraded phones and it doesn't fit my new phone.  The real problem came in when I couldn't find one I like for this year.  Turned out to be a the best thing, because what I did find was a clear case which gives me the opportunity to stamp my own!

 Luckily because the case was going to fit my phone I cut out a template before the case even came in.  I immediately started going through Christmas stamps, but then realized I could now do a "case" for all the holidays so I put down the Christmas and picked up the Thanksgiving!!

For my particular phone I need to start with a 2 5/8" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock.  I stamped our Autumn Flower Spray using black ink that had been stamped off once and colored it with my watercolor pencils then lined up our Psalm 100 Thanksgiving Greeting in my misti and stamped it twice using black ink ( you can't really see it in the photo because of the plastic case reflection, but the black came out REALLY black :)  Keeping in mind it all has to be one layer I masked off the flower section and stamped our Woven Plaid (using our Easy Plaid Demo on an angle) using orange and yellow inks and finished off by markering in an orange line after I removed the mask.  After rounding the corners, I put my almost finished card into the case and lightly traced the openings for the 2 cut outs with a pencil.  I used a circle die to punch out the center and for the oval camera opening, I used a regular hole punch at either end and a blade to connect them.  Voila - my first cell phone case!!!

I didn't stop there of course!  On to Christmas.... well, my first Christmas case :)

I was completely in the mood to color last night, and this was the perfect image to use!  I simply stamped our Santa with Puppy Christmas Scene onto another 2 5/8" x 5 1/2" card using black ink - except that before I stamped it I wiped off the ink that's on the window and drapes.  Once I was finished coloring (including the yellow wall) I stamped our Happy Holidays across the top and added a little glitter accent to the fur on Santa's outfit and cut out the 2 openings.

Thanks for stopping by!
