Just wanted to share some cards I made with left overs in my scrapbox. I am a huge coffee fan, okay along with stamps... I am also addicted to coffee.
I used chocolate chip craft ink and then put clear embossing powder over and heat set. Much easier to watercolor embossed images. I used my favorite method of watercoloring with markers. You just scribble markers onto stamp case and pick up color with aquapainter. I like to use this method to color in images while at my boys activities to keep me busy.
I haven't figured out a sentiment to use, but makes a nice little stationary set gift. The stamp set is from Stampin Up's occasion mini and is level 1 hostess set called "slice of life".
Happy Valentines Day! I have no hearts or valentine card to show today, but today is also my brother's birthday. So I am sharing the card I made him using extreme snowboarder stamp which you can get for FREE during sale-a-bration. I used sponging with torn paper to get the effects of snow and mountains and embossed the snowboarder in black.
So sorry have not been able to post anything for a week. We have been hit with snowstorms every week and I am the one to have to clear it all and stay on top of ice dams. I have a craft fair coming up on March 5th at Walpole VFW from 10 am- 3 pm. So, also have been crafting for that to get things done to sell.
My share today is one of the items I am making for craft fair- post it note holders with a pen. I used a great sale-a-bration stamp set called Bliss. Dawn Griffith did a great video tutorial on how to make them- super easy using up some of my scraps.
I have been stamping for about 6 years. I became a Stampin Up demo in September 2006 and love every minute of it. I enjoy scrapbooking, knitting and teaching swimming. I am married to a great guy who supports my crazy stamping habit. I have two great boys 13 and 11.
