Fav color combo

100_3492

A Class Hit!

100_3398
This card was a FAV at my recent All-Occasions Cards Class. We stamped the flowers on Shimmery Cardstock and then quickly scribbled over the flowers with the aqua-painter full of water. The results is a simple Faux Watercolor look.

100_3397
The background is Pimrose Petals Core'dinations cardstock, dry embossed and SANDED to expose the light colored core of the cardstock. It looks just like dotted swiss fabric! Try this card.

Floating Image Card

100_3415
Is this magical or WHAT?! The whale is on a window sheet and appears to float above the water!!

100_3416
This side view shows the window sheet standing out from the 4.5" X 4.5" card. I cut the window sheet 5" X 1.75" and then creased it. I tucked it behind the Whisper White layer and attached it. Be sure to use Sticky Strip with the window sheet. It's so simple - TRY IT!! I saw this technique demo-ed by Joan Robinson. Thanks for stopping by!

Show Off Designer Papers

100_3404
This clever layout will SHOW OFF both sides of your Designer Series Papers! I cut my Designer Series Paper 3X3" and 4X4"...these measurements divide into the 12X12" paper and makes efficient use of the product. Next, I wrapped each of the Designer Series Paper around the Whisper White cardstock about 1/2" and attached it to the backside of the white. It's sooo simple!

100_3405
Opening the card shows both sides of the Designer Series Paper! Tip: demonstrators, this is a clever little project design to use up your retiring Designer Series Papers. Polka Dot Parade is not retiring, though.

Supplies List:

  • Stamps: A Round Array #129090
  • Cardstock: Whisper White #101650, Pumpkin Pie #105117
  • Ink: Old Olive #126953

Stained Glass Technique

100_3411
These grapes are created with the STAINED GLASS TECHNIQUE. First, I stamped the image on Cardstock Vellum using Jet Black StazOn ink. I let it dry a couple of minutes. From the backside, I colored the image with Stampin' Write Markers. DONE! The finished side is the one with the black inked image. The Vellum softens the colors.

Texture time

100_3413
Do you save ribbon scraps like I do? Here is a great way to use them...or use up retiring ribbon colors! Punch a large shape into your card front. On the backside, line the edges of the opening with powerful STICKY STRIP. Now weave the ribbon - just like making a POT HOLDER when you were a kid. The Sticky Strip will firmly hold the verticals while you weave the horizonals.

100_3412

100_3260
Awww...don't you love these shimmery little bunnies! Easter is THIS month!

100_3262
This shot shows the shimmer better. I'm having really good luck by making my own shimmery mist that doesn't clog as much as the Smooch Spritz. DIRECTIONS: in Stampin' Up!'s new SPRITZER (pg. 179) pour in one inch of Shimmer Paint (pg. 158). Then fill remainder of Spritzer with 70% rubbing alcohol. I added a tiny ball bearing to help with mixing. Shake and spray. One well-aimed shot will do it - don't saturate the cardstock. LOVE THE LOOK!!! Technorati code G5ZM5NQC9QPR

No Layer Card

100_3225
Yes, you can create a NO LAYER card with lots of interest! I made my own template and sponged color inside the shape to create a focal area. This unifies the sentiment and image, acting like a faux layer. This method works to create a SUN, too.

Swallowtail - triple time stamping

100_3206
What is Triple Time Stamping? It's quite easy, yet impressive! Stack three layers of cardstock, attaching w/ re-positionable adhesive. Stamp your image(s). Separate the cardstocks and add a darker cardstock as a layer which will elimate the "white space" at the edges of the layers. As you do it, you will understand how it works!

  • Stamps: Swallowtail #129213 Wood or #129216 Clear, Beautiful Birthday #125562 Wood only

He got a beer!

100_3166
"Look dear, Tami sent me this awesome heart!" Hubby, "Are those bottle caps? I haven't had a beer in months. I think I'll have one." LOL Not the reaponse I expected about this lovely creation from my upline Tami Waddell in California!

100_3168
LOTS of detail and variety in this design! Hubby did offer me his beer cap for creating...I declined because it smelled...like beer - ick!

I'm not going to attempt to list all the supplies. Just get out your reds, pinks, and hearts and start creating! Don't forget the NEW Soda Pop Tops from Stampin' Up!'s Spring Catalog - they DON'T smell like beer!! CHEERS!!
