Stamping Techniques

Faux Silk Technique

On Monday night I held the first of a series of technique classes I will be offering. It was a fun class where we tried three techniques, created cards using the techniques and a technique binder that everyone took home to use as a reference. This first card was the one we created using the Faux Silk Technique. A simple technique that adds a nice textured look to a card.

SUPPLY LIST FOR FAUX SILK TECHNIQUE CARD:
Non Stampin' Up! items: white tissue paper and a glue stick



Faux Torn Paper Technique

This was another card we created using the faux torn paper technique. Don't you just love how versatile this Dragonfly Dreams bundle is?!

SUPPLY LIST FOR FAUX TORN PAPER CARD:


We also decorated the front of a Project Life album which we will use as a reference tool for all the techniques we learn throughout the series.

Stamping Techniques

Next class is scheduled for Tuesday April 25th at 6:30pm! We will learn 3 more techniques. No need to have attended the first session in order to come to this one! Hope you can join us!

Same design, two cards!

Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack

I'm all about working smarter, not harder. When I come across a card design I love, I will often replicate it using different products. Do you recognize the layout of this welcome card? I CASE'd my own card design...

Celebrate Handmade Card

Because these cards won't go to the same recipients, they will never know that I copied the design from another card. It's all about saving time, which we are all short on. Here's another version I did of the welcome card.

Vertical Garden Stampin' Up!

The same card, just a different color combination. Did you notice the little pop of glimmer paper on both these cards - one in Sweet Sugarplum and the other in Bermuda Bay? A little peek at a new Sale-a-Bration offering that will be available beginning February 21st! You get four 6x6 sheets each of 3 colors (Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum). And I must admit it is gorgeous!! I will be hoarding this paper and using it in sparing amounts so that it will go a long way!  I have a feeling this is going to be a POPULAR item. It will be available while supplies last so be sure to get your orders in before it's gone!

Have a creative day!

Happy Galentine's Day!

Happy Galentine's Day! I don't know if I'm late to the game or what but I just heard of Galentine's Day a week or so ago. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, it's a day (the day before Valentine's Day) to celebrate your girlfriends and women. You can read more about it and how it started here.

I have a class tonight with some sweet customers and thought I would create some cute little treats to celebrate these sweet Galentine's of mine!


I love making little treats and cello bags always seem to be the first place I turn. And you can't go wrong with a cute banner!


To create the tag, I used the Vertical Garden stamp set (#142996), the Sending Love paper stack (#142733) and the lace doilies (#142793). I love the dimension the shadow on the hello provides.

Hope you have a fabulous Galentine's Day!

Hey Chick by Stampin' Up!


There are some seriously fun stamp sets as Sale-a-Bration options this year. The Hey, Chick stamp set being one of them. The images in this set just make me smile. I had my monthly card class this week and this adorable egg card was one of the cards we created. It was inspired by this card I found on Pinterest. I just made a few modifications to make it my own. I love the simplicity of it and it'll make a perfect card to give to one of my kids with a little note about how proud I am of them and who they are becoming!


The second card was a swap I received, created by Donna Powell. I love how she used the Hexagons Dynamic Folder (#143231) for the background. This gives the effect of chicken wire and coordinates beautifully with this stamp set! Love it!


And the last card for today was another swap I received by it had no name on it so I'm not sure who to give credit to. This messy haired rooster makes me smile - I love it. I wonder if the image was inspired from one of these beauties...

Or this Polish Frizzle Chicken
 Who knew there were so many types of chickens and that they could be so cute! Inspiration really can come from anywhere!

Have a creative day!

So Very Much - Thank You Cards


Sets with nice large words are so fun to create with! The Thank You greeting in the So Very Much stamp set is no exception. I have several cards to share with you today using this cute set. Although they use the same greeting each card has it's own look.


This first card is a swap that I received from Amy Shihinski. She used the 'splotch' from the Work of Art stamp set and stamped it onto a piece of shimmer white cardstock that had been misted with water. This gave the images a bit of time to bleed or run a little. The splatters were created with our gold wink of stella pen. Love the way it turned out.


This one has a bit more of a vintage feel to it. It was a swap I recceived from Tracey Frith. She used the So Very Much set along with the Timeless Textures set. I know I've said it before but the Timeless Textures set is really one of those sets that everyone needs in their collection. It's the perfect set for adding a bit of a background to the any card!


Here's another card using the Timeless Textures stamp set to create a bit of a background. Notice on this one, I used my crushed curry marker and went over the words to add a bit of dimension to them. Such a fun way to make them a bit more bold!


This last card, for today, was created by Linda Baker (inspired by Kelly Achison). I believe this cool looking background is the shaving cream background. You use a combination of shaving cream and ink refills to create this gorgeous background. It's super fun to do but I haven't done it in years. Such a beautiful card!

This stamp set - So Very Much - is one that you can earn for free with a $60 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. If you make a lot of thank you cards, have a wedding or baby shower coming up - this set would be perfect!

  • So Very Much (wood mount) - #143340
  • So Very Much (clear mount) - #143343
Have a creative day!
