A few other goodies I purchased at the Adventures in Stamping convention last weekend here in Akron, Ohio were the following. . . I couldn't wait to play and share with you!
This company is called Too Much Fun Rubber Stamps. I've seen them at convention before but back then there were 100 vendors to visit & purchase from so I never invested in this brand but with Covid, this year there were only 25 vendors and I decided to explore this company a little further.
This is the Large Screen Door STAMP ...
This is the DIE that cuts out the opening on the screen door where you can add Acetate or they even had fine mesh screen material you could purchase. Since I have acetate on hand I didn't purchase any screening (though cute idea I thought!).
Another items they had were these sheets of images which you could position behind the opening in your screen door. They had several various packs ... this is 2 of the 6 I purchased. You of course can also use these by themselves on a card front. There are 2 sheets in each pack ... I also bought a pack for Fall, a couple for Christmas/Winter and one for Baby. Here are the two I used on today's cards.
For my first two cards I measured my card to fit the stamp and created an acetate window. The fishermen scene is attached to the back of the front cover, leaving the inside of the card totally open for your sentiment/message.
This second card I have put the image on the inside panel but there is still room across the bottom of both inside panels for your sentiment/message.
For this third card, I used my usual size card (A6) and the screen door fit perfectly (top to bottom) so I finished off the sides by creating hand drawn brick walls.
The image is adhered behind the 'window opening' on the cover of this card so your inside is totally open for your sentiment/message.
I actually stamped the door onto the front of my card base and die cut the opening. I then stamped again onto a piece of Kraft card stock, die cut the opening, did a few outline accents with a Tombow marker, then adhered my image & acetate before adding it to the inside card front panel.
I stamped a different sentiment in the lower portion of the door but got it off center so had to do a quick fix but cutting a scrap of kraft paper a little larger than the panel on the stamp ... inked the edges, added a smaller sentiment and adhered. Whew! No one will know! LOL
