September 2010 Stamp Club

These are the cards from the Stamp Club. It was a fun night. I think we all needed some laughs and stamping time after our crazy days! The card above uses the masking technique. I made a mask of the Top Notes die and used the border punch to make the other mask. I placed those on Whisper White card stock, then used a brayer to add the Blushing Bride ink. The hearts were also stamped using the masking technique. When you do this technique, you always want to think about which image you want in the front and stamp that image first.

To make this watercolor flower card, first ink up the stamp with markers and stamp on card stock. I used watercolor paper. Confetti White also works well because it also absorbs more of the water and spreads it around better. But this technique can also be used on any other card stock. I used an Aqua Painter on the flower image (after it was stamped) to get the watercolor look.

To make this spider web, run Basic Black card stock through the Big Shot with the Spider Web embossing folder in the Holiday Mini. Use a sponge dauber and platinum shimmer paint and rub in a circular motion. Spooky, huh?!

This card is made using the stained glass technique. Emboss an image on Vellum card stock. It's thicker than regular vellum and will hold up better when you emboss. Flip the vellum over and use markers to color in the back. Flip it so the embossed part is out and attach to your card.

This card also uses the stained glass technique. The DSP (Designer Series Paper) is from the Holiday Mini and is called Deck the Halls.

Happy Stamping!
