Stamping Tips & Techniques

Sweet and Simple

This was one of my favorite cards I made for the display boards!  It uses the wood grain DSP and Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to cut the curve.  The circle dies cut out the perfect windows for the stained glass vellum.  I love the fact that you can cut little pieces out of the Graceful Glass Vellum and make tiny windows.  I colored these with the Stampin' Blends in the front of the card.

So Exciting!


I was honored to be selected as a speaker for On Stage - Milwaukee at the Wisconsin Center!

I was challenged to share how I run my business as well as share the Graceful Glass Suite with the audience.  I created twenty projects with the set and found it so much fun to play with!  I will posting quite a few of the samples on my blog in the near future.  Some I am saving for my free open house, Product Purchase Class as well as Coffee and a Card.  The first I will post are my 3D samples.  The first of which I forgot to bring to On Stage, so this is my first time sharing it!  The second uses the acetate boxes!

I love the little animals in the A Little Wild stamp bundle. I've used every element in cards I have designed with this set.  I love that you see the front and back of each animal.  This month's card features the cute little elephant!

Orchids!

The new orchid set makes gorgeous cards and 3D projects, as you will see in my two projects today.  First, I found a clearance rack plant and took off the flowers.  Then I stamped the orchids on Flirty Flamingo Cardstock with Raspberry Ripple ink, replaced the flowers with the paper ones, and look at the stunning result!

Then I stamped the other style of orchids on Daffodil Cardstock with Crushed Curry ink.  Again, a stunning result.  The cards almost designed themselves!
