Cacophony of Cards!

So, we had a great time at Stamp Camp last night!  I am so sad that you missed all the fun.  What more, I am so sad that you missed the opportunity to add to your collection of greeting cards just waiting to be given to those special people in your lives.

But no fear…

First of all, we are doing another on May 18th… my house 5pm.

What’s that?  You don’t live near me or you can’t attend?  No worries.  I will be offering for the first time ever – an online class.  More details will be coming about that soon – you know, once I figure it all out!

Secondly, here are the cards we made…  and today, I will give you the details about the most favorite one that everyone completed!

I will willing admit that every single one of these cards was CASE’d by other people.  When I feature each card, I will let you know who the inspiration came from.  The beauty of Stampin’ Up is that everyone shares their ideas with everyone else!

So, what is your guess about what card was made by everyone that attended last night?  Well, it was a complete shock to me.  But, is quite a lovely card!

Oh – which one… it’s this one…

This card was inspired by someone who did not put a watermark on their photo so I do not know for sure who it was.  If this is your card.. please let me know so I can give you the credit!

Isn’t it great.  It combines embossing and water coloring.

All the products I used are listed below… but here are a couple tips that I gave the girls last night.

    • Do the embossing first.  Make sure that your stamp is clean.  Since we used Black Archival ink on the same stamp, it is essential to clean it with the Stampin’ Scrub after the black – or just do the VersaMark first!
    • For the sentiment – cut one green and one vanilla using the punch.  I cute the green into three pieces – the middle and both ends.  I also cut off the middle tip of the vanilla layer.
    • For watercoloring – the technique used was to hold the colored pencil in one hand and use a blender pen to get the color directly from the pencil. I used multiple brushings of the pen on the pencil.  The more color you draw out, the darker it will be on the coloring.

I used 1/8″ borders for this card.  And, used multiple layers of SNAIL to attach the ribbon

Here is the supply list…

Monday’s card will showcase a retiring stamp set – so be sure to tune in.

Until then… Keep it simple, Stampers
