I thought I'd share another punched tree card that I made using the Doily Triple Layer Punch. I love how the pieces that punch out can become the leaves. Isn't that just too cool? Wish I could take the credit for thinking of that idea, but that goes to a lady by the name of Connie. Thanks Connie for the great idea. The DSP is Well Worn. All items used are Stampin'Up! and can be ordered through me or directly through my Stampin'Up! website . As always if you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Thanks for stopping by.
We had a great time at my class last night and if you missed it, well let's just say you missed some fun stamping. The ladies that attended loved the cards. As promised I am sharing them with you today.
Thanks for all the inspiration that I get from my fellow demonstrator friends and thanks to those who attended my class.
My next class is on October 6 and is a Christmas card class. We'll be making 5 different cards and two of each design for a total of 10 cards with envelopes and the class price is $15. Contact me to register. firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is another card using the same stamp that was in yesterdays post. This time I stamped it in Versamark and embossed with the NEW Pewter Embossing Powder from the Holiday Mini Catalog. This card is much prettier in real life and to me has a real WOW to it. Tomorrow I'll show the cards from my Let's Get Punchy class that I'm having tonight so be sure to stop back.
Fall is certainly in the air these days. Where did our summer go? Fall though is my favorite season so when I saw this single stamp in the Holiday Mini Catalog I just knew I had to have it. It is called Leaves of a Tree (123843) and sells for $9.95. I'll be showing several things you can do with this stamp over the next few weeks, but here's the first. I used sponge daubers and added color directly to the stamp using several different colors and then stamped. The words are from the set Just Believe. I used the new Spice Cake DSP from the Holiday Mini as well. Thanks for stopping by.
The technique used on this card is called Joseph's coat and has been around for at least as long as I've been stamping and I'm sure probably before that. I had forgotten about it and them came across a card that someone had done using this technique and thought it would be great with this set, Autumn Splendor. I love how it turned out. In the past I did this with a multicolor ink pad and a brayer, but since we don't have multifcolor pads anymore I thought I'd just do it with sponges. If you've never done this before and would like to give it a try, here are the steps.
1. I used Whisper White cardstock, but you can use glossy cardstock as well. Sponge different colors of ink randomly over the cardstock.
2. Stamp images in Versamark Ink and heat embossing with Clear Embossing Powder
3. Using a sponge or a brayer add your dark color. I used Early Espresso Ink.
4. Buff your image with a kleenex to remove any ink on the embossed images.
Here is a quick card I put together the other day using stuff I had "started" that was laying on my stamping area. Did you know a 1" circle punch is the perfect size to go behind the flowers on the Lace Ribbon Border Punch? I used Chocolate Chip on this one. Can you see the Smooch paint I used on the frosting of the cupcake? This cupcake is from the Got Treats stamp set. The background was embossed using the Stripes embossing folder. The other colors are Melon Mambo, Pool Party and Crumb Cake. And for a little bling I added some Rhinestones.
Here is one more card using the Day of Gratitude set. I used the Domestic Goddess DSP on this one. Colors are Pool Party and Chocolate Chip. The scallop circle is the other circle from the Perfect Pennants Big Shot die. Inside the scallop circle I added a Chocolate Chip 1 3/4" circle and then the leaf from the Day of Gratitude stamped in Wild Wasabi. The words are from Perfectly Penned. Oh and I think the Chocolate Chip scallop dots ribbon really finshes it off.
