Stamp Club January 2015

This card would make a great non-traditional Valentine's Day card!  To make the paper look like suede, I ran a bone folder over it again and again.  Then I pulled it apart so you can see the middle of the paper.  A little Best Day Ever DSP, some silver glimmer paper for bling, and the card is done!

The Moon Lake set is in the Occasions catalog, and the Gorgeous Grunge set gave a little background to the Marina Mist paper.  The words and image are stamped in Baked Brown Sugar, with just a touch from the Marina Mist marker on the water.  The Adventure Bound DSP in the Occasions catalog used in the background is so neat-- There are designs, and also pictures on trees, rocks, thread...!!  A little Thick Bakers' Twine in Baked Brown Sugar give it a good, rustic finishing touch.

The Bloom with Hope stamp set is a Hostess set in the catalog, and this flower from the set looks great when stamped and punched out with the 2 1/2" circle punch.  So pretty!!  I ran the Cherry Cobbler card stock through the Texture Boutique Machine with the Decorative Dots folder, then attached it to Early Espresso card stock with dimensionals.  The Daffodil Delight Blendabilities markers were used to color the flower.  

The Lotus Bloom stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog is so pretty and easy to use.  It comes in photopolymer so it is easy to see where you are stamping when you stamp the 3 parts of the flower.  I used Strawberry Slush, Soft Suede, Mossy Meadow, and Whisper White.  To color the Irrisistibly Yours DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog, I put a few drops of reinker in a dish, then used the aqua-painter to pick up some color.  I found it worked best if I scribbled on scrap paper first so it wasn't so dark when I colored the paper.  This paper is pre-embossed so you just use a paper towel to remove the excess ink to the embossed areas.

It is Sale-A-Bration time, so you can get GREAT products for FREE for each $50 purchase you make. I love free products!!

Happy Stamping!

Stamping Fun Night January 2015

We made this card with Work of Art stamped off, then stamped 3x for the background.  We stamped the trees in StazOn, then added some Dazzling Details for a little winter shimmer!

This card has a few Sale-A-Bration products on it.  The Lotus Bloom stamp set is so pretty and so easy to use!  We used Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette.  The Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP was sponged with Wild Wasabi ink.  I love how the pre-embossed leaves pop out!

This card was a demonstration.  The Best Year Ever DSP is also a Sale-A-Bration product.

How do you get those great Sale-A-Bration products??  With each $50 purchase from now until March 31, 2015, you can pick any Sale-A-Bration product for FREE!!

Happy Stamping!
