Graceful Garden Basket Weave – Polished Stone

At our stamping event, my friend, Janet, demonstrated two fantastic cards.  For the first one she showed us the basket weave technique and used the Graceful Garden stamp set and co-ordinating Petal Garden Designers Series Paper Stack.

With the return of the Glossy White card stock, Janet’s second card featured the polished stone technique.  The card base is Fresh Fig.  The reinkers she used to create the polished stone effect was Pink Pirouette and Fresh Fig with the gold metallic.   She finished the card with the dragonfly and a Swirly Scribbles thinlit.

Thanks so much Janet for two wonderful demonstrations!

We had a lot of mom and daughter attendees and here they are.

and Maxine, one of my team members.

Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful day before the long Canada Day weekend.  Happy stamping!

Daisy Buckle Card

We held our last Stampers Club for this session until the fall on Monday and we made this buckle card with the daisy punch and Delightful Daisy DSP.

Do you notice the coloration on the front of the card?  The Designer Series Papers this year looks faded, however, it was intentional to provide a color wash look.

It’s been a while that I made a buckle card so it was fun to make.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Step into Summer Stamping Event

My team and I held our Step into Summer stamping event on Saturday.   What a great time we had and the weather was very summery in Metro Vancouver as it was a hot, hot, hot day.  How appropriate was that for our event.

Along with the projects, we had prize patrol, wow demonstrations, lots of displays  (of which I totally forgot to take pictures!), refreshments, prize baskets, table treats and a card swap.  Everyone had a great time and left with 6 projects.

This was one of the favourites and I’ll be sharing some of the others in the next few days but I need to put the finishing touches to the projects for Stamp Club today.


Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping.

Tabs for Everything

Tabs for Everything was one of the sets we received at OnStage earlier this year.  I really didn’t see how I would use it until I received the current issue of Stampin’ Success that featured this set.  It comes as a bundle with the new Circle Tab Punch.

I made this mini pizza box with the set for my Open House last weekend.

And I cased the note cards that were in the magazine.

The punch is just too cute. 

Some great uses for the Circle Tab punch are:

  • Make tabs for the catalogue for the different categories
  • Punch out the color of card stock you use on a section of the stamping sponges and staple it to the sponge so it identifies the ink color you are using.  We used to have the tab punch that served the same purpose.
  • Use it as a pull tab on your various projects

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps:  Tabs for Everything (Bundle with Circle Tab Punch #145364 – $40)
  • Paper:  Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Subtles DSP
  • Ink:  Pool Party, Powder Pink, Island Indigo,  Wisteria Wonder,Black Archival
  • Accessories:  Circle Tab Punch, Layering Circles Framelits, Dimensionals, Retired Twine

Dragonfly Dreams

So happy that Dragonfly Dreams is in the new Annual Catalogue.  Today’s card uses a watercolor technique shared by Cindee Wilkinson.

The card base is Tangerine Tango cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.   Cut the watercolor paper to 3″ x 4″.  Spritz the paper with water and then use a clear block to pick up the ink directly from the ink pad.  Apply the ink from the block onto the paper and repeat this using various colors.  For this card, I used Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango.

As the paper is wet, the ink will spread out when you apply it with the block.  Repeat as often as you want to get the coverage you are pleased with and spritz the paper again if you want to spread the ink around.   This will take a few minutes to dry or you can use your heat tool to speed up the drying process.

This watercolor piece is layered onto a piece of Rich Razzleberry cut 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″.  Adhere it to the card front with dimensionals.  I rolled the dragonfly using the framelit on Rich Razzleberry card stock.  Trim down the edges of the dimensional sheet to attach to the spine of the dragonfly and adhere to the watercolored piece.  I washed the dragonfly with Wink of Stella which gives it a slight sheen.   Add some rhinestones and stamp the sentiment using Black Archival ink and your card is done!

Thanks for stopping by and have a stamping good day!

Birthday Delivery – Surprise!

This Birthday Delivery stamp set has so many adorable images and this is one of the sweetest.

She’s so cute with the surprise package behind her. I started with the Lemon Lime Twist card stock and layered a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ on the top and cut a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist Fresh Florals DSP cut 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ for the bottom.

The image is stamped with Black Archival ink and color added with a Blender pen.  I cut her out using the Oval Layering framelits and matted it to a piece of Lemon Lime Twist card stock cut with the oval Stitched Shapes framelits.

I wrapped a length of retired Whisper White ribbon over the middle of the layer and attached to the card front.  I popped up the art image with dimensionals and finished the card with the sentiment stamped with Black Archival ink.

Thanks for stopping by and having a stamping good day!

Floral Statements

This stamp set is  definitely a Floral Statement and one of my top 10 picks from this year Annual Catalogue.

The stamp set just jumped out at me when I was going through the catalogue and knew it was a must have!

The card base is Rich Razzleberry with a layer of Old Olive.  I stamped the image on Whisper White using Black Archival ink.  I brought out the Watercolor pencils and colored the flowers with Rich Razzleberry and the leaves with Old Olive.   I used a blender pen to spread out the color and finished the card front with some sequins from the Frosted Sequins package.

You can purchase these items at my online store, always open to serve you!   CLICK HERE to enter my store.

Thanks for stopping by and having a fun stamping day!

Touches of Texture in Cracked Glass

Everything old is new again, right?   It’s been sometime since I made a card using the Cracked Glass technique and at our last club class, we decided to use this technique and this is the result.

Stampin’ Up! used to carry a product called Glassy Glaze that you need for this technique but it was discontinued.  We used the UTEE that you can get from your local hobby store to produce the cracked glass effect.

For the cracked technique, we stamped the images on the Whisper White card stock.  Then cover the entire piece with Versamark and then sprinkle the UTEE over it and heat with the heat tool.  While it is still warm, add another layer of UTEE and heat again.  Repeat this process for a total of 3 runs.  Place in the freezer for a few minutes and gently “crack” the image that provided a cracked glass effect.  You can add more texture to your art piece by sponging one of the colors used for the stamped images into the cracked grooves.

We used the new Oh My Stars embossing folder for the background layer.  The stamp set is Touches of Texture and the ink colors are Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz and Daffodil Delight.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful stamping day!
