I haven’t posted any stamped stuff lately. These are the projects from my October and November classes.
I love this buffalo from In Wilderness. With a little extra sponging of ink around the edges, it gives it a nice vintage look.
This set is so gorgeous, but I don’t always know what to do with it. Stamping it didn’t really give it enough depth, so we ended up embossing it in black. Then it was easy to just add a little ribbon and some fancy corners. I love to do this shadow effect with the tag punch. Makes the punch stand out so much.
I included this one for old time sake. This is very similar to the card I did at the party where I first signed up. I remember I was SO impressed with myself that I could create something so awesome that I signed up the next day!
I’ve had this Cute by the Inch set and I’ve just been itching to do something fun with it. So I did these itty bitty gift cards in a rainbow of colors.
For our 3D project, we actually did personalized Pyrex dishes with the glass etching cream and some stencils. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of any of the finished projects, so I grabbed a quick picture of this lovely etched plate I received during Convention. It’s hard to see in this photo, but it is etched with the Manhattan Flower stamps. Sorry, I lost the label of it, so I don’t remember who it was who made it.
This is a gorgeous simple card. It’s one of the rare projects that I cased almost exactly. It’s just something that if you added or subtracted anything from it, Unfortunately, I didn’t write down whose card it was I was copying, so if it is yours or you know whose it is, please let me know.
This was our November 3D project. I just love these stationery folders. They are so easy and you can do them with any color or stamp set. I’ve probably made 50 of them over the years. It just takes one sheet of cardstock and 2 pieces of printer paper, so it’s a very economical gift too. Usually I throw in a few envelopes and some stamps.
This was our other 3D project this month. These are just some votive candles with initials. This would make a lovely grouping with some larger pillar candles. You could spell out Joy, Peace, Love, or someone’s name instead of initials. Very versatile and another inexpensive gift.
This is my favorite technique, mainly because it’s so easy and can be done with materials I have around the house. This is Faux Silk and it’s done with crumpled tissue paper and a glue stick. It doesn’t show up well in the pic, but it has a lovely raw silk texture to it.
This card got the most rave reviews from my customers. Unfortunately, it doesn’t photograph well, but the Night of Navy section is deeply embossed with snowflakes from my new Snowflakes embossing folder. Really sets off the white ribbon and the red corner. It’s a little bit of a patriotic Christmas, but that’s kind of fun, I think!
