The stamps are made of the finest clear photopolymer available, and proudly made in the Heartland of America. They love ink and stamp like a dream!

CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Designer: Angie Tieman

Today we welcome Angie Tieman. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can see Angie’s projects below, but first, here is a little more about her:

AngieTiemanProfilePic-09242014-250WHi! My name is Angie Tieman, and I’m a Missouri girl living in Dallas, TX. My day job is awesome, teaching 3th – 5th grade struggling readers, even though it seriously interferes with my stamping time. I used to call myself a lazy stamper, but that was before the term “clean and simple” came along. So now I’m mainly a clean and simple stamper who occasionally makes a card my husband of 24 years describes as having “a lot of stuff going on.” When I’m not paper-crafting, I’m reading a book, hanging out with my girlfriends, or snuggling with my dog Scout.


With fall and the Thanksgiving holiday approaching us here in the US and Canada, it’s the perfect time to play with the CAS-ual Friday Stamps Wheat Wreath and Amber Waves. The watercoloring trend is big right now, but since I’m a lazy, I mean clean and simple, stamper, I have had no patience with trying to watercolor. That is until I learned you could just color some markers on a clear stamp, mist it with some water, and press it down on watercolor paper. Boom. Watercoloring.

Many Thanks Card

For the card below, I colored the beautiful harvest wreath from Wheat Wreath using mustard, olive, and two shades of rust markers. Once I finished coloring, I sprayed it with water in a mister bottle, stamped it and let it dry. Lastly, I inked the harvest wreath in Versamark ink, stamped it again, and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I love how the gold layer is slightly offset so the watercolor shows behind it. That’s called a happy accident from me not lining it up correctly. Happy accidents in stamping are the best! To finish the card off, I flicked some gold shine spray on it and heat embossed the sentiment from Amber Waves in gold on a wooden banner. I like having dimension to my clean and simple cards, and usually I’m a stickler for a nice, flat panel and achieve that by gluing it to a piece of chipboard. But here I attached the panel just as it was, watercolored, wavy, and buckled, with foam dots.

Grateful Card

For my second card, I used the wheat sheaf stamp from Amber Waves with the nifty watercolor trick again. I colored in the stamp with gold and tan markers, misted it with water, and stamped on watercolor paper. To add some texture, I pulled the threads out of a piece of burlap ribbon and attached them over the stamped image. I added a little wooden button and stamped the sentiment Grateful from the Wheat Wreath stamp set. I attached the watercolor paper to a piece of chipboard here to give it a flat, sturdy appearance and attached it to the card base with foam dots.

  10. Those cards are gorgeous! The coloring and embossing on the first and the burlap on the second are fabulous!

  11. Wow, I am a CAS fan, although I style myself more simple than clean LOL. Love these cards. Your happy accident results in a fantastic look and I love the burlap strands over the wheat Hugz

  19. Great watercolor technique! I, too, love how Angie made the wheat stalks look so real by adding the burlap fibers. I love clean and simple, so CAS is definitely for me!

  20. Angie, I love both your cards! I’m learning stamping so it never occurred to me to stamp using the watercolor technique and doing over it with embossing powder. That you for showing that technique and inspiring me so much. Your Grateful card is every bit amazing as your Many Thanks card. The strands of burlap elevate the whole card. Thank you so much for sharing both cards. I’m looking at stamping in a new way now.

  21. Wow! love both these cards, the wreath has stunning colours and the wheat sheaths I thought where real until I saw the card enlarged. Great CAS cards!

  23. I really like the way that Angie added dimension to her cards with some embossing and jute. I’m definitely going to case those ideas. Winning the stamp set would be the icing on the cake! Thanks for giving all of us the chance to win the beautiful stamp set.
