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!
