Faux Embossing Folder

This is the technique card we finished last Monday. All the girls seemed to enjoy this one. I must admit, I will be using this technique quite often from now on.

All of the technique cards and ideas you see on my blog, usually come from Splitcoast Stampers, the most valuable website I have ever used. Sooooo many ideas and tips. Check it out, listed under my favorites.

Faux Tearing Technique

I had a lot of fun doing this technique. I used my Brayer for the first time and one of my many favorite stamp sets. Yes, another one, and naturally, what seems to be my right arm, the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Another extremely useful product from Stampin Up.The cardstock is Old Olive, Chocolate Chip with Whisper White. The ink pads are as above, and including Pacific Point. Brads and Ribbons come standard.

Faux Tearing

Carefully tear the scrap paper. Add soft waves if so desired. Apply removable adhesive to the back of the scrap paper. Adhere scrap paper to cardstock. Ink a brayer and then apply ink to cardstock until the cardstock has the color you are looking for. Stamp over the brayered section. Pull off your scrap paper and remove adhesive residue.

Blender Pens Technique

Here is another Technique card for my classes. I would personally like to thank Kim for the colour inspiration. Check out her blog listed under my favorites.

Love the colours in the card now, I was having trouble trying to find the right colours that would go with the Cameo Coral. Thankfully, kim worked this out for me. Other cardstock is Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue.

Paper Piecing Technique Card

This is the card back for my Paper Piecing Technique Book.
It's not a brilliant photo, sorry about that.
Watercolour paper
Regal Rose
Rose Red
The stamp is from a Penny Black stamp, I have had forever. I really so love this stamp. I thought It would be a great stamp to show off this technique as her dress is gorgeous.

I will fix this photo and re post the changes when I am happy with it, as those who know me, know I will not be happy with it until I do.
Okay, all better now

Faux Framing

Here is the first technique card that I have done with my Stampin Girls.

The card reads:

Create a mask from copy paper by cutting a shape such as a square, rectangle or oval using a punch, coluzzle or hobby blade and straight edge. Use temporary adhesive to attach mask to neutral cardstock. Sponge inside the mask, shading darker toward the edges. Stamp images inside the mask allowing them to overlap onto mask. Remove mask from cardstock. Complete the card.
Here is the card that we made to attach to the back of the technique card.
We then place the card inside a A5 plastic pocket and then into a A5 folder.

When you want to make a card or use a certain technique, grab your folder and away you go :)

Good Neighbour

Here is my latest creation, using the Sale-a-bration stamp set. Good Neighbours.

The designer paper I have used here is the Urban Garden range, which I just love.

The cardstock is Not Quite Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Going Grey and Baja Breeze.

The ribbon is Kiwi Kiss and Going Grey.

I am working on a technique book with my regular stamping girls, I will post some of the pages when I have completed them.
