September Stamp-A-Stack

September is right around the corner and we will focus on using the "Embrace Life" and "Oval All" SU stamp sets with the Watercolor Wonder Crayons at the Stamp-A-Stack get together September 2nd and 3rd. The card on the left uses the SU cardstock: Orchid Opulence, Pale Plum, Rich Razzelberry (textured with the small dot plate) and Whisper White.
The DSP is Cottage Wall and a strip of Polka-Dot Rich Razzelberry grosgrain ribbon finishes it off. The blender pen was used with the Watercolor Crayons and inks.

The card on the right uses SU cardstock Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, Rich Razzelberry and Confetti Cream. The Pale Plum cardstock was run through the Big Shot Embossing Folder-Final Press and Mellow Moss Taffeta Ribbon completed the card.

Punched Window Technique

This is a fun technique to try. Stamp your images on a DSP and use your circle punches to punch out various areas of an image (makes a window). Restamp your images on white paper to match the same number of windows created previously and color in the images. Cut out the shapes and line them up with the patterened paper and secure with adhesive.

Fishy Card

This whimsical card was done using the Heavenly Holes technique. The stamp set is a retired SU set. The CS is SU gable green, tempting turquoise, taken with teal, brilliant blue, and whisper white. I used the Cuttlebug folder Spots and Dots for the background and punched the various sized holes with the Martha Stewart craft punch.

This week we will be using the Upsy Daisy stamp set to make two different types of cards. The first one uses the chalk line technique and the second uses the Top Note die and the new In-Colors, ribbon, and paper from StampinUp.
