Catching Up!...

Hello!  I'm catching up....again!
I knew it had been awhile since I'd blogged, but oh my!  I didn't realize how long until I started today.

Here are the projects we made last month at my Stamping Escape Class.  All were a big hit.  I've loved showing the versatility of one stamp set.  For October, the stamp set I featured was Wondrous Wreath.

This card idea was cased from Tina Rappe.  I modified the card to be a birthday card, Tina's was a baby card.  And, I simplified the layout by adding fewer flowers.  If you were only making a few, adding the extra flowers is nice.

I've seen a number of different ways to use this set for Fall.  I took a technique that we learned at Stampin' Up!'s annual convention this past summer called Reverse Rock & Roll and used it for the wreath coloring.

First ink up the full wreath image (there are 3 for layering) in Crushed Curry ink.  Before you stamp it onto the Very Vanilla card stock, ink a sponge dauber in Cajun Craze ink and spot ink around the wreath on top of the Crushed Curry ink.  Breath onto the inked stamp to remoisten the ink and stamp.

I did stamp the berries image over the top, and then once assembled added some Gold Dazzling Details to give it a little pizzazz!

This great fence card for Christmas, as cased almost entirely again from Tina Rappe.  The only change I made was using a piece of Soft Sky card stock in place of the designer series paper.  You could also add snowflakes from another stamp set, but I was not wanting to add additional stamp sets.

On both the birthday card and the Christmas card, we made fork bows (using a serving fork).  There are numerous tutorials already on the internet, just google fork bow and you'll find them.  It makes a cute little bow with less ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy stamping!
