Tarnished Foil Technique Card Share

Hi Ladies!

This is the third card in the March Monthly Stamping Club lineup.  We did the Tarnished Foil Technique on this card which was inspired by one I received from Debbie in a Demo Swap (sorry no last name).  Thank You Debbie!

There are a couple of ways to do this technique, and I chose to use the simpler way.  All you do for this is emboss a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  Then use VersaMark ink and dab it on areas on the cardstock, then add Copper embossing powder. Then add more ink and use the Gold embossing powder. Finally fill in the remaining areas with the ink and add Silver embossing powder.  So easy and no mess nor fuss!

Basic Black 22 x 4-1/4, 5-1/2 x 2-1/8, 1-1/2 x 4-1/4
Copper Foil 5-1/2 x 1/2, 1 x 2
Vellum 4-1/4 x 1-1/4

I coloured the enamel shapes with a bronze sharpie to match the colours in the card. 
Give this technique a try, it is a lot of fun and not too difficult at all.

Have a Crafty Day and enjoy the weekend.

Black Stainless Steel Technique - a Cased Card Share

Hello Friends!

I ran across a video on this technique by Linda Heller and knew I had to make it.  I loved her card so much that I cased it just as she had it.  This card uses the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper and shows how versatile this paper truly is.  It has a glossy finish so it lends itself to so many techniques.

When you rub the Memento Ink over the surface of the designer paper, it does not adhere to the foiled pattern.  Then you just rub it off with a paper towel and you have a beautiful background.  This can be done with any colour you choose.  Just make sure you do not touch the surface of the designer paper before you add the ink or you will have finger prints on it.  If you look real close on the left side in the picture above, you can see where I touched it.

Basic Black 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
Gold Foil 5-1/4 x 4, 3 x 3
Springtime Foil Sp DSP 5-1/8 x 3-7/8
Whisper White 3 x 3

The rest of the supplies can be found below my signature.  You can choose this beautiful paper as your FREE ITEM with an order of $60 or more.  But only until March 31st, then Sale-a-bration will be over and it goes away forever.  I know you will not want to miss out on this paper.

You can CLICK HERE to go to my online store and place your order before March 31st.
Or please EMAIL ME if you have questions, or if I can help you place your order.

I would love it if you joined my Craft Room Stampers Team.  During Sale-a-Bration you can choose two extra stamp sets to go in your Starter Kit.  The kit is the best bargain in the catalogue.  You get $165 plus 2 stamp sets, for only $135.  CLICK HERE to join my team.  You can also email me with any questions about signing up.

Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper Card Share

Hi Friends!

This month is the beginning of a new round of Monthly Stamping Club.  Each month I get to spend some crafty time with a wonderful group of Ladies who come to my studio and make cards.

This month we are doing 2 cards using the new Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper and a really cool technique.  I will be sharing these cards over the next few posts.

Today's card share also uses the soon to be long gone stamp set Blossoming Basket.  Oh my, it is so fabulous to colour with the Stampin' Blends!

I used the dots pattern from the designer paper.  It has Rose Gold highlights and is so pretty.  So I coloured the flowers in the basket using the Pink Pirouette Blends (the light and the dark).  Then I used the Light Daffodil Delight for the flower centers.  I could not resist putting Wink Of Stella on the centers, although you can't see it in this picture.

The background also uses one of the Sale-a-Bration items - Basket Weave embossing folder. This comes in a bundle with the Blossoming Basket stamp set and you can choose it as your FREE item (the entire bundle) with an order of $120 or more.  Yes that's right, FOR FREE!!!

The basket is coloured with the Crumb Cake Blends, then I used the Colour Lifter to remove some of the colour where I thought the light areas would be.  The butterflies are stamped in Pink Pirouette then I fussy cut them out.

Thick Whisper White 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
Pink Pirouette 5-1/4 x 4, 2-1/8 x 5, 3-3/8 x 3-3/8
Whisper White 5-1/8 x 3-7/8, 3-1/2 x 3-1/2, 1 x 3
Springtime Foil Sp DSP 2 x 5

You can find a list of supplies under my signature.  Simply click on any of the images to go to my ONLINE STORE.  Don't forget, you only have until March 31st to snap up this beautiful bundle before it disappears forever.  :(

Please EMAIL ME if you have any questions, or if I can help you place your order.

Amazing You Notebooks

Hi Friends!

Hurray for spring!  It is so beautiful here with the spring bulbs flowering and the Dogwood trees ready to burst out any time.  Dogwood is the flower for British Columbia and we are so lucky to have a tree right in our yard.  And I can look out my craft room window and see it!  Simply amazing....

Speaking of which (amazing that is LOL), this month we are starting the new rotation for the Monthly Stamping Club.  Each new club receive a notebook and pen from me.  It's always a great thing when you have a notebook to jot things down in, ideas, inspiration, card recipes, card ideas, what you want to order, what you have ordered, all sorts.

This is the book I created for members of the new Monthly Stamping Club ...

I used some of the Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper, then paired it with Powder Pink and Basic Black.  Isn't it stunning?  What a beautiful way to alter an inexpensive notebook from the dollar store.

I am so going to miss all the beautiful Sale-a-Bration products when they "go away" at the end of March.  But the good news is that you can still get them FOR FREE until March 31st.  The flower is from the Amazing You stamp set, and the dies are from the Celebrate You thinlets.  There is so much you can do with this paper, stamp set and dies.  Don't wait too long to order yours!

CLICK HERE to go to my online store and place your order. You can choose from these, or any of the Sale-a-Bration items for FREE when you place an order of $60 or $120.  
EMAIL ME and I am happy to place the order for you

And my personal March Promotion will be in effect until March 31st as well. Purchase ANY bundle from either of the catalogues, and receive a package of Touches Of Nature Elements for FREE! (click on the image to go to my online store for more information)

Have a Crafty Day and thanks for visiting today!
