"Making a Splash Die Cut Water Pail"

Summer is just about over, but you can still celebrate with a water party and cute party favors. For this project, I used THIS cut file by Lori Whitlock and the "Under the Sea" papers from Echo Park Paper to create a Water/Sand Pail. Lori's 3d Dies and the Silhouette machine make quick work of a project like this. The entire project took 15 minutes from start to finish, and much of that was me deciding how to decorate the front of the pail.

14 Background Stamps from Echo Park That Will Blow Your Mind

Ok, crafters, let's talk background stamps! Oh how I crush on these amazing stamps. They add that little bit of pizzazz that every card needs. And I'm just happy when I get to stamp. These are 14 of my absolute favorite background stamps from Echo Park. Seriously they will blow your mind! They blew my mind when I saw them, and I work for Echo Park. Do you know how fun it is, to get to see pre- and post-production on products like these when you are a crafter yourself? Giddy, people, just sure giddiness. I know I'm totally biased, but I truly believe that some of these will catch your eye as well so I'm totally sharing today. Be sure to pick a few of your favorites.

Stamped "Boo" Halloween Card

Working for Echo Park Paper means that I often get to see products BEFORE they are released to the public. The stamp set featured on this card was one product that I was completely over the moon about. The charming Halloween icons were just screaming for a cool card background so I had to have it. Here is the card I created. Keep reading to learn more about the stamp set and the dies featured on this card!

Boo stamped Halloween card by Jen Gallacher for www.jengallacher.com. #halloween #card #cardmaker #stamping #diecutting

This is the stamp set I "HAD" to have. It's called "Halloween Costomes Stamp" and you can find it in the supply list below. Click the shop icon you typically shop from to purchase the set.

To create this project, I simply stamped the icons from the set in a pattern on white cardstock with black stamping ink. I didn't color the images at all. Instead I wanted this card to have a modern flair. I added color with the gold die cut circle and gold enamel dots. I brought in some texture with black and white die cut leaves and one phrase sticker (again, see all products below).

Here's a few more photos of the card. Be sure to pin your favorites for inspiration later!
