Fall Fun Stamp Camp-

Here is the first of 5 cards we did at my Fall Fun Stamp Camp-here are the directions I gave.

Stamp Hardwood stamp on Baked Brown Sugar panel in Soft Suede.
Cut between each board and then punch the the top with the petite pennant punch lining up the edge at the top of the punch.
Sponge each board heavily with Soft Suede ink.
Snip the green panel with the fringe scissors then add some random snips to make it more raged looking.
Emboss two Ghosts in white and cut out.  One for this card and one for the treat holder (I'll post the treat holder Tomorrow)
Stamp pumpkins and Happy Haunting in Pumpkin pie on the larger Very Vanilla panel and cut out.

Bokeh Technique for September Technique Class

  This Card was a big hit at my Technique class this month's class.  We meet the first Thursday of every month.  The tree stamp on this card is from the Festival of Trees stamp set.  Here are the directions we used on our technique card.

 Bokeh Night sky Technique-refers to a photography technique of blurring light to form globes of color.  Make a deep colored background with sponging or similar technique.  Stamp a focal image.  Build light circles using a variety of sizes and colors-large white craft ink circles are nice for giving an ethereal glow. Repeat stamping looks nice to give variations in saturation.
We used Mossy Meadow for the "grass".  I used a circle from the center of a medallion stamp that was meant to be waste to stamp the large circles and each of the ladies got their own applicator to take home of the small circle( it was a stampin' up pencil we used the eraser with the metallic ink.

The tiny dots were a stamp that came in the Festival of Trees set.  The sequins are in the occasions holiday book.

August Sketch Class card Three

For the third and final sketch card in August we went a little more masculine.  I made this card first so I had hand cut the pennants but for the class we used the dies.  The spiral boarder punch and the candy dots gave the card that little extra.  The Moonlight paper stack gave me a nice choice of paper to use.
