Saturday was my “Team’s” monthly gathering. We had a great time catching up with each other and making cards. Our upline and friend even joined us via facetime. Brian was so nice to talk with us during out gathering! Anytime I get to see his face it is a good day!!! Even if it was on a flat screen. The day was made even better day by getting to craft with some of my favorite people. I am always overwhelmed by the generosty and kindness of the stamping world. Everyone is so very supportive of others. Sharing ideas and life! My ladies are no different! We all help each other out! And we all love seeing what the other is Creating!! It is just a lovely way to live.
So what did we do besides talk with Brian… Well, we had lunch and made two cards one of witch I am sharing with you today. Finally, we played a game around the Stampin’ Up! colors…There defantly was lots of chatter and laughter throughout the day!
One of my favorite papers from the annual catalog is the irresistible floral specialty designer series paper. This paper comes embossed so that you can add color to it as you choose.
The sentament is from Sunburst Sayings stamp set. I adore the font of the greetings in this set! The thanks is clean and simple looking… Witch I love ❤
To color the paper we used three colors of ink blending them together with the new sponge bayer. The trick is to build your color up slowly. And not to press to hard avoiding really harsh lines. Also, you want to overlap your colors and work back and forth between colors. We did this using Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Marina Mist.
- It is a great idea to have a set of sponge bayers for each color family. One for reds, blues, yellows, greens, neutrals, and so on…
After adding color to the paper we made our banners. Using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig we double stamped the Thanks. First in Daffodil Delight. Then in Calypso Coral, off setting it a bit.
- This is one of my favorite craft tools!!! It is a must have to me ?
