Gail 3 - Copygail 5 - CopyIt’s easy to just stamp the presents and then stamp the bows!

Sweet Thank you note from Pat using Work of Art stamp set and a Gold Foil Butterfly Thinlet……..


IMG_0695I love this Simple card from Tammy!  The flower is stamped in Versamark and Black embossing powder over top and then heat.  This makes a nice solid black flower image to contrast the pink butterfly.  Thanks for sharing Tammy!

Any finally my samples which we’ll be making at Convent Village this month

IMG_0709 (2) Previously, we shared a video on coloring in with aqua painters on the gorgeous Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up #138444  For this sample, we just sponged with a Stampin’ Up dauber color, Blushing Bride, onto the DSP and added a vellum Bold Butterfly Thinlet #137360

IMG_0708 - CopyWetlands stamp set is such a good Go To.  It’s soothing to look at and can be made into a masculine card also.  For this card, we cut a template (4″ x 5 1/4″) with an oval Framelit to place on top of a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock (also 4 x 5 1/4″) . TIP:  paper clip together to keep from sliding around.  Using Sponge or Sponge Dauber #133773, sponge a little color in the center where the oval is cut out.  Remove and then stamp in Black Memento or Stazon ink or Early Espresso inked image on top of sponged area…now.your turn to be creative!  See what you can do with this technique! and send me your creation!
