Ruffled leaves

I just got my stamper's success magazine and had to try out the ruffled paper technique.  I use Stampin Up's designer paper for my color inspiration most of the time.  I love the idea of using it as place or instead of ribbon.

It really is just free forming it- I use some snail on back of 1/2 inch strip and just keep folding it or "ruffle it" to continue it down the cardstock.  It did take longer than a 12" strip, so I needed an extra piece of dsp to finish it off.

I also tried out another technique of emboss resist  using first edition speciality designer series paper and french foliage stamp set.  I used some retired copper and new pewter embossing powder and then sponged on more mustard, old olive and bravo burgundy inks.  I used splitcoast challenge #351 from this week.

Happy Fall!

Been out of stamping mode, call 411

I haven't been stamping as much over the summer, now that we have power and kids are back at school I needed some inspiration for stamping.  I went to a great website and did their sketch challenge this week.

This is a new fun set from Stampin Up called "kidoodles" and the designer series paper is "let them eat cake" from Stampin Up too.  I used the designed series paper for my color choices: wild wasabi, baja breeze and peach parfait.

Hurricane updates and delays- New Holiday mini

I apologize for downtime, Hurricane Irene knocked out our power for 5 days just getting back in the swing of things and will be posting again soon.  Plus it delayed kids going to school, which cuts into my stamping time.
Happy Labor day weekend.

New Holiday mini is out and love it, check out my sidebar link to view all the fun new things!
