Hi Stampers. Welcome to our Global Stamping Friends blog hop. Today we are featuring ways to use Stampin’ Up! to create Home Decor. When most people think of Stampin’ Up! they think card making and maybe even scrapbooking, but it can be used for a whole lot of things, including home decor.
This Ikea clock was made over using the Stampin’ Up! Coffee Cafe stamp set and the (recently retired) Number of Years stamp set. It’s stamped in Early Espresso, Sahara Sand and Garden Green inks.
This Ikea clock was made over using the One Wide Ride stamp set and the (recently retired) Number of Years stamp set. The inks used here are: Memento Black, Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate. The banner was colored in with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.
This Wal-Mart clock was made over using the Varied Vases stamp set and the (recently retired) Number of Years stamp set. I stamped this clock using Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape inks. The flowers were then colored in using Stampin’ Blends.
It’s really an easy process to make over the clocks and almost any analog clock (smaller than your sheet of cardstock) will work. I just took the clock apart and removed the face that it came with. Using the original clock face I traced around the circle onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I cut out out this circle with paper snips. Placing the original clock face under the new clock face up against a light source, I used a pencil to mark where the numbers needed to go.
I then stamped the 12, 3, 6 & 9 with the numbers onto the new clock face. (These numbers could even be stamped with an image, since most people know the basic orientation of an analog clock.) The other numbers on the clock were stamped with a small image from the stamp set. I created a focal image in the center of the clock face. This focal image can be any theme that you wish using just about any stamp set. You just need to use your information and give it a try!
After the clock face was complete, I used the multi-purpose adhesive sheets on the back side of the clock face. (You probably don’t want to use liquid glue because the paper may buckle after a while). I used an anywhere hole punch to punch a small hole in the center (you can also make a small x with an x-acto knife) and placed it back into the clock. I then replace the hands and re-assembled the clock. It’s then ready to give as a gift or hang on your wall.
