Simply Stamp Day Project

Today, using a few Simply Stamps products, I made a key holder that will come in very handy.  Here is the finished project;

We own a rental property, and the renters need our address [for mailing those rent checks ;)].  How perfect is this key holder for them!  A place for the keys, along with never loosing our address.

To make this project, I started with a 10¢ garage sale find frame.



I broke off the back stand since I want to hang this on a wall.

I cut a card panel the size of the frame



 
Now, the fun part starts!
Using Simply Stamps Ice Cream Cone stamp, I cut off the "ice cream" portion so I could use just the "cone" part. [This just extends the use of the stamp, as I can still put the 2 cuts together again to use the stamp as originally intended.]  
I stamped repeatedly across the card panel using the Color Box Wicked Black ink.
The advantage to this ink, is it is archival, and works with my water color pens.

I painted the frame using black paint, put everything back together again, and adhered some clear hooks. For the last step, I stamped my address using my Self Inking stamp.  All done!


Have you popped over to the Simply Stamps store to see all the products they offer?  
It is pretty amazing~


Thanks for stopping by~

That is so cool and colorful and a great way to let them know where to send the checks. No excuse not having your address this way.
