Today I'm sharing the third of the three cards we did at this months sketch class. This card features the White Christmas Stamp Set. We again started with a Whisper White panel that was 4.25 x 1.5. This time we stamped our image first with Mossy Meadow ink and then sponged in the colors Mossy meadow for the grass and Sahara Sand for the sky. We gently swirled up to the grass line and left just a hint of the white to give a sense of the sun setting leaving light on the horizon. Then we over stamped Hello Honey leaves onto the grass. then we cut the panels apart. I used the Stampin' Trimmer to cut the window in our Color Me Autumn DSP panel. This was the trickiest part of the card but if you go slowly and watch your measurements it will work out fine.
The second of three sketch cards this month features the Gift of Kindness stamp set. We again started with a Whisper White panel 4.25 x 1.5. Starting in the middle we swiped ink across in Marina Mist then to either side in Crumb Cake and Night of Navy. We stamped over the sponging then cut the panel apart. Last thing we added a circle panel and our greeting.
Welcome Stampers! Today I'm Sharing card one or three I did for my October Monthly Sketch Class. Sketch Class is to help stampers get comfortable with designing their own cards. This months sketch was fairly simple but as we have learned from the past simple doesn't always mean it will be easy. This card required a little extra work with our sponges and paper trimmers. Each of the three cards start with a panel of Whisper White card stock that is 4.25 x 1.5. For this card with then stamped our house colored it with Blendabilities and then put a mask on it that we cut using the Homemade Holiday Framelits Dies. With the mask applied we sponged off the mask with Pear Pizazz and Soft Sky. Cut three quarters of an inch off the top then one inch off the top stamped and applied to top panel that we had cut stars from. we then pieced in a Daffodil Delight panel under the stars and mounted it to the front of a Calypso Coral card base.
The first Thursday of the Month is always Technique Class at the Power House Studio. This month we did an Embossing Resist Deconstructed. We started with a Whisper White panel embossed the Feathers in Clear with Versamark and then sponged on Blushing Bride Ink. We then sponged Rich Razzelberry over the Feathers to highlight then and used the random speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Black Berry Bliss Ink. Then we whipped off any excess ink from the Feathers with a paper towel and the last step was to drop a few drops of water from an Aqua Painter on to make water blotches. We finished off the Card with a Feather that was inked in Rich Razzelberry and Rock-and-Rolled in Black Berry Bliss and one cut from Glimmer Paper. This Blushing Bride Cotten Ribbon is so sweet it is the just right contrast to our Grunge Card.
Hello Stampers! Today I'd like to share a card I made just for fun. I saw the idea to use the Flower Frenzy Die to make a sun flower somewhere on Pintrist and so I had to try it. You cut out a stack of three of the largest flower on the die then you recut the flower turning it just a little each time on the Die so that you end up with these pointy little shreeded petals. then I added the Early Espresso center that I had Embossed. The Greeting is from the For All Things Stamp Set. The Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder was used for the Background. Thanks for stopping buy!
