Explosion Book Class

Wow how wonderful students did in the explosion book class this afternoon! Here are some pictures.

These two were done by a mother and son Duo Jean Ann and Ben. What I loved about Ben's is his ability to collage the front of his book. These books were done with out any stamping. Great Job!

Sheryl's Project is next what great combination of stamping and stickers to create a great cover. Simple but strong design.

Pam's project combined her love of nature with a very tight color combination, Wow.

Last book Is Jill's. Her Son is getting married in October and she has made a book to give to her future daughter in law. She used the illuminations stamp set and cut out and raised the initial. wow I need to make one for my brothers wedding. We had lots of fun if you are interested in a class let me know I will have classes in Late August!

Technique card swap

One of the cards I have for a swap at convention is a technique card. The technique I chose was Dahlia fold. While I love the way the card looks I'm not always excited about all the fussy folds. I decided to do buds with this card and was pretty happy with the outcome. I used a total of 6 Dahlia folds to create this card and if you would like the instructions here is a link to how to fold the card.
I used the following

Stamps Baroque Motifs,
Ink Certainly celery, Rose red Classic ink
Paper Designer series Rose red and certainly celery, Rose red, certainly celery, whisper white card stock
Accessories crystal effects
Fold and build buds glue together flowers and stem using crystal effects set asideStamp sentiments and scroll using rose red and certainly celery Assemble cardthanks for looking Virginia

I'm In swap heaven!

I'm less than a month away from convention and I signed up for way to many swaps. So today I got two different swaps done this is the first one. This swap is a technique swap and the technique is faux shaving cream. I love the look of the shaving cream technique but I hate the mess. This technique is so easy. To start by inking a flat stamp with a lighter color(pumpkin pie) and then using a wheel and a darker ink (Rose Red) you twist and turn the wheel to create a swirled effect. Then you huff and stamp! Background is Boho backgrounds and i used taken with teal strips. Stamps Boho Backgrounds, Ginormous Flowers, Fresh cuts Ink Rose red, Pumpkin Pie Accessories Ice Brads, Stampin Dimensionals
