Christmas Lodge

Hello,

When I was planning for my Christmas club, I knew that I wanted to use this stamp set, but every time that I looked at it I was drawing a blank as to what to make. So I decided to turn to my favourite place for inspiration..the Stampin Connection. This unique website is for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and it connects us to others all over North American.

So I did a search on this set and came across this beautiful card by Debbie Currier. Thanks for the inspiration!! Now I added Dazzling Details to my snow to make it more real looking!!

Halloween Bouncing Brayer Card

Hello,

First I would like to say a big thank you to all the ladies that stop by yesterday for my open house! It was so nice seeing old friends and meeting new ones. It was great chatting with you and I look forward to seeing you at upcoming class. The winner of the door prize was Laura!!

 I wanted to share with you one of the cards that we made at technique club this month. I wanted to show the ladies how to do bouncing brayer. I decided to do a Halloween card as I thought it would look really cool with a spooky background.

For Bouncing Brayer: Using a brayer and an ink pad, ink up the brayer. You want to lift the brayer each time you are inking it. This way the ink will be even on the roller. Bounce the brayer on glossy cardstock making sure to keep one end of the brayer at the center of the cardstock. Continue to bounce brayer on cardstock while rotating cardstock with free hand. Re-ink brayer as needed. Once you have the desired look, stamp your image with Staz-on ink.

I love how this card turned out!! Very Spooky!!!

My inspiration for my project today came from Convention. Donna show us how to make this while on main stage. I knew that I wanted to recreate this with my favourite Spice Cake Fabric!!

I used our fabric to decorate a piece of 12 by 12 cork. Then I add 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon along with our new yummy Spice Cake Buttons! I used the Gently Falling stamp set to create the leaves in the corner and my greeting is from the new Hostess set called Warmest of Wishes (in the Holiday Mini). The best thing about this project, there was no sewing involved!!

Gently Falling Baby Wipes Technique

Hello,

Last week at our technique club, I had fun showing the ladies the Baby Wipe Technique. I have done this technique in the past but knew I had to show this group how to do it using my favourite fall set: Gently Falling!!

I can't believe how real my leaves look!! I don't know if I told you but Fall is my favourite season!! I love the cooler days, the beautiful colours in the leaves and all the fun events that only happen in the fall!!

Baby Wipe Technique: Fold a baby wipe in half and then again. Using Reinker, drop a few drops of your light colour first onto the baby wipe and then repeat with the darker colour. Then take your stamp and stamp it into the baby wipe and then onto your project. The cool thing about this is you can create any colour of ink pad that you want!! How fun is that!!!
