Ep 55 Holiday Helper: Penguin Snowball Fight Pro Tip – layering vellum and stamping with kids

Vellum can be tricky – where to put the sticky so that it doesn’t show? Today’s video tip will give you creative ideas on covering up the glue. Plus I’ll talk about stamping with little ones and the types of projects that appeal most to different age groups.

Young kids really love to stamp. So if they’re old enough to hold a stamp and apply the stamp to paper, then invite them to create with you! But don’t be surprised if their projects have a totally different look from your idea of ‘stamping’.

You do want to be sure to supervise your youngest stampers – otherwise you never know what they might stamp (story here…).

I often find that kids between 2 and 6 look at stamps like an extension of drawing pictures with crayons. So if they’d normally take a piece of paper and draw a house and a tree, they consider stamps the perfect tool to do the same – to create a scene.

So these penguin stamps (and their sledding and skiing raccon and rabbit buddies from Freezin’ Fun stamp set) are the perfect gift for younger stampers in your life. They’re the ideal ‘scene’ creating set. So this card honors those young stampers – and creates a snowy scene.

Looking for more ideas for stamping with kids? I’ve got some past projects to share – including ideas for crafts to make with kids, and fun projects with ink.

These penguin friends are simple to stamp and easy to cut out with the coordinating Freezin’ Friends Dies – which are on the Year End Closeout Sale, so don’t wait too long to order or you might miss them.

Another tip – add your adhesive only where it will be hidden:
