Happy New Year! Happy Valentine's Day! Wow! I've been away from my blog for too long! I have lots to post. I made all kinds of valentine cards, gotta send them today too!
I played with Crosses of Hope set, Love You Much set, and my Big Shot. I just cut out denim flowers, hope to make a denim flower pin. I'll post a photo when I've got it just right.
This past December I taught myself how to crochet. I'm making little flowers to adorn my cards. (I also make dish cloths and net scrubbies - I only do quick projects, not to the afghans yet!!) I'm off to take photos of what I've been doing. So check back TODAY!!
These are the cards we made at our Stamper's 10 CLUB. Email me for more info. on how YOU can join a Stamper's 10 club, or conduct your own. First one was just a sample to show how the Impressionistic technique and make a masculine card. The next two photos are examples of the Q-tip technique I learned from Dawn at dostamping, using the Elements of Style stamp set. These use 4 colors, dotting and colored using inked cotton swaps. It's a gorgeous look, my stampers worked hard, and loved their results! The last photo of 2 cards are done using the Impressionistic Technique, here is how: The stamps are from the Watercolor Trio stamp set from Stampin' Up!, I used the clear cling mounted stamps, we inked the stamp in Old Olive Classic Ink by Stampin' Up, then removed several spots of ink with our finger and used the Elegant Eggplant Stampin' Write marker to color those areas to be flowers. Then we stamped it onto Confetti cardstock, and spritz it with water until the colors ran. When it looked just right we took the heat gun and dried it completely. For added spots of color we put the E. E. stampin' write marker into the InKworx spritzer. It blows color off your marker and onto your cardstock. Then stamped a greeting and mounted it onto cardstock. The Old Olive background cardstock is stamped randomly all over with the same image just inked in versamark ink. Added some E. E. punched flowers at the bottom just for fun!
