I had Stamp Club last week and we made some great cards and learned a new technique.
We made this card using the Faux Cloissone Technique. I did this technique years ago and forgot about it until we made Belinda's card in the shoebox swap a couple of weeks ago. I thought it would be a fun thing to do with my club gals. They loved it! The flower is from Secret Garden so we used the die to cut it out instead of having to cut it free hand. The butterfly is cut with the die from Backyard Basics. To do the technique:
- · Select a colorful page from a glossy magazine.
- · Rub your Embossing Buddy over the part of the magazine page you want to use.
- · Ink the Secret Garden flower stamp with Versamark ink and stamp on the magazine page.
- · Pour Gold Embossing Powder over your image. Tap off excess powder. Use the heat gun & emboss the gold powder.
This card uses the Peekaboo Sizzix die. I really have not used this die as much as I should have. I just forget about it. But it is so easy to use and makes such a cute card. The stamp set is Halloween Hello.
This was my favorite card! I used Shimmery White cardstock and just did a color wash with my Aqua Brush. You just have to be careful and not get the card stock too wet. First we used painters tape and taped the edges of the card stock. I squeezed my ink pads to get ink in the lid to paint with. I used Soft Sky for the top half; next Marina Mist; and finally Soft Saffon and a little bit of Baked Brown Sugar for the sand. Then stamp the birds and sentiment. I love this stamp set!
