Hi there. Today is the last day of Neat and Tangled’s Release Week. I’m so excited to show you my projects today because I collaborated with Danielle on the first stamp set. It was inspired by my little guy (Aiden), who has a peanut allergy…
I thought I would share five different ways to use this stamp set….
1. The “regular” way. Don’t have a child with a food allergy? No worries. You can still make cute cards with it. How adorable is that peanut image!?
Here’s a card I created with the stamp set…
To create this card, I die-cut a black circle from one of THESE dies and mounted it to the center of a white panel. I stamped the Nuts About You sentiment repeatedly in a circle using THIS ink and then clear heat embossed it. I also heat embossed the heart image in the center of the circle using red embossing powder. I stamped the peanuts using THIS ink on to a piece of THIS paper. I cut them out and adhered them with foam tape to the circle. I mounted the whole piece on to a red note card.
A closer look…
Moving on to ideas for using this stamp for a child who has food allergies….
2. Create an allergy alert button. Having it for a child to to wear is a great reminder to the caregiver that they have a food allergy…
I purchased clear buttons at my local craft store that you can pull apart and place paper inside. I stamped the Nut Allergy stamp using red ink on yellow paper. Here’s Aiden modeling it….
Oh, and it wasn’t easy getting this picture. When he found out what I was doing, he thought it would be funny to hide the button….
Silly Boy. If you’re worried about the sharpness of the button, another option would be to pin it to the diaper bag.
3. Label food. I never fully understood the severity of the peanut allergy until Aiden was diagnosed with it. It is a serious issue that can be life threatening. I think labeling food is so important, especially homemade treats…
Simply stamp the No Nuts stamp on to some stickers….
or create fun cupcake adornments with the stamps…
4. Create a temporary tattoo. My niece (Taylor) helped model this one….
I simply stamped her hand with a kid friendly red ink. You could use this product on top to prevent it from washing away…
Again, a great reminder for the caregiver or even an older child when you’re not with them!
5. Stamp on documents for babysitter, teachers, caregivers….
Simply stamp with red ink for a noticeable reminder….
I used a great print out that I found on Pinterest HERE
. After filling out the information, I laminated it and put it on the fridge. I can use a marker to write in temporary notes and wipe it clean for the next use!
Now I have some inspiration for the other stamp set being released….
I was thrilled to see this set because I am a dog person. I created this fun, interactive, spinner card…
Check it out in action on my Instagram HERE
I created the scene by die-cutting blue and green cardstock with THIS
die. I trimmed most of the green cardstock down to create grass and used THIS
die to create the hole for the spinner to spin. I stamped the dog using THIS
ink on to a piece of THIS
cardstock and cut him out. I used THIS
stamp set that was just released as well for the clouds and the grass. I adhered the tennis ball to the circle on top of the pennies to spin and finished off the card by stamping the coordinating sentiment.
A closer look…
