Another Watercolor Card

Here is another card using The water color technique I showed you the other day. It is so easy to create wonderful images with this technique because it already looks like a background before you start stamping. I also used bleach to get some of the text to show and splattered water when the card was almost dry to get the water resisted areas. Thanks for looking Virginia

Water color Technique

This Card starts with a technique I demonstrated at the Wow event put on by Latenight Stampers a pre convention event. It starts with a technique I borrowed from Tim Holtz using ink spots. I thought it would be easier to show you so here you go!

Masculine Card swap

One of the swaps I participated in at convention was a masculine swap. I swapped and received over 60 different cards. They are really great and I have many of them already displayed on my boards in my studio. If you haven't stopped in to my studio it is great fun and I have so many awesome projects to inspire you. 
Swapping is one of the great perks to going to convention everyone swaps and shares ideas. (LOL my downline's hubby thought we sold our cards he he!) I brought home enough ideas to share with you all for the whole year and then some! Convention was way to much fun. I am already planning for next year and it looks like 2 of my downlines will be going. If you want to join in the fun  why not become a stamping up demo. Here are just some of the perks of becoming a demonstrator Product discount. Demonstrators get a 20 percent discount on all Stampin' Up! products, including stamp sets, paper, and accessories. It's a great way to support your love of stamping an…

Convention was Awesome

Hello I have been MIA for a while. Summer has made me way to laid back!

I got back from convention a few weeks ago and had the most wonderful time. Last year I set a goal of bringing one of my down line (stamping Up demo) with me to convention. At that time I didn't even have a down line.  My friend Marilyn made it possible! Stamping has taught me so many artistic lessons but the circle of friends I have met has truly made it special.  As you can see below Marilyn and I had way too much fun. To get a small idea of the fun imagine 3000 women at a giant pajama party for a week. Not only did we have so much fun sharing and swapping cards(I swapped well over 500) We get free stamps, special deals and lots of other perks! Why wouldn't you want to become a demonstrator as well! Call me and we can talk! 315 727 7288.  Check out the free stuff in our hands! A last minute gift on the last day.Thanks so much Marilyn for making my goal come true!
Now for some of the wonderful swaps.  I th…
