September Project

This is the project for September. There are 4 little notecards that will go into the little purse shaped box. These are quick and easy as the shapes are all punched out. Punches used are 5 petal flower, scalloped circle, 2" circle, 1 1/2" circle and 1/2 circle. LOTS of punches. The stamp set used is In the Spotlight (a Hostess set).

True Friend

Here is a pretty card made with the new True Friends stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog. Stamps used are True Friend. Paper used is Blue Bayou, Really Rust, Sahara Sand and Vanilla. Inks used are Blue Bayou, Sahara Sand and Really Rust. Accessories used are corner punch, distress tool, mat pack, pop up glue dot, circle punch and micro beads.
I used the pop up dot in the center of the flower and then covered it with micro beads. This gives the flower some dimension.

Oh So Lovely

Here is another Oh So Lovely Card - we will do this
one at the September camp. Stamp sets used
are Oh So Lovely and Close as a Memory. Paper used is Vanilla. Inks used are River Rock and Chocolate Chip. The only accessory is brown
You could used this reverse masking technique for any occasion - just change your stamps and sayings.

Oh So Lovely

Here is a card we will do at Sept. camp using the reverse masking technique.

Give Thanks watercolor crayon card

Here is a fun card using the Stampin' Up watercolor crayons and aqua painters. Stamps used are Give Thanks and Flannel background. Paper used is Pumpkin Pie, Mellow Moss and watercolor paper. Inks used are Black Stazon, Pumpkin Pie and Mellow Moss. Accessories used are moss ribbon, horizontal slot punch and distress tool.
It is a good idea to use Stazon ink when you are watercoloring because it won't run. Scribble on a foam plate with the crayon and use the aqua painter to pick up the color. Then just color in your image with the aqua painter. This photo is a little dark so the image looks a little more washed out then it does in real life.

Booglie Eyes Halloween card

Here is a Halloween card that we will be doing for the September camp. Stamps sets used are Booglie Eyes and All Holidays. Paper used is Only Orange, Green Galore and Lovely Lilac. Ink used is black. Accessories used are bashful Blue marker, decorative edged scissors and circle punches.
