August Technique Stamp Group Projects

This month's Stamp Group was at Desiree's house. She invited 4 of her good friends to come. One of them I haven't seen in years. It was so good to visit with her for a little bit. 

I taught the "Thumping Technique" or a version of it. I used the Just Believe stamp set, which I love! See how the leaves have a darker ink on them. This is the "Thumping Technique". There's also some sponging with some of the new colors. The ribbon wave was done with the new Rich Razzleberry Taffeta ribbon.

The inside bottom of the card has a strip of Razzleberry that uses the White Frost Shimmer Paint and the stamp to give it a pretty sparkly effect. I designed this card and am happy to say that I think it turned out really nice. If you'd like any further information about it, please leave me a comment. Thanks!

Now for the 2nd card that we did that evening. It took us a while to get through both of these projects. We had 10 ladies come and we were laughing and having so much fun it was hard to stay on task. It was also time consuming since I only had one stamp set. I love this card! I saw a version of it on Angela Walford's Blog. I changed it up a little. I added White Gel Pen to the Scallop Border punch. I used Play Date DSP instead of the Poppy DSP. She used two buttons & I used a bitty button with c/s behind it & a thin piece of Daffodil Delight c/s through the button. Add a little twist at the end  to get your tails & put on with a glue dot. I used the BoHo Blossom Punch for the other flower w/a black brad. The base card is Crumb Cake put through the SU Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder. The sick chick was colored with Daffodil marker & blender pen. The flower was done with Real Red the same way.
If you'd like to join our Technique Stamp Group we're starting the next round on September 10th. Post a comment and I'll get back to you.
Thanks, Kristi
