MORE FROM THE HERD!


This is Caroline's Demo Diva share from this month.   For the "glittery" llama (I am just guessing that is what sort of animal that is), we colored him/her with a Basic Gray Stampin' Write Marker and then added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter~~worked perfectly to make the llama looked like the Silver Glitter Paper!  Each and every time I see this stamp set, it puts a big smile on my face!  Thanks for sharing your creativity with us, Caroline!

Adding a new class to my April Calender. It is filling fast, so be sure to sign up early! Class is April 21st from 10 a.m. to noon or 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. (or you can come both times if you want). Cost of the class is $20, and you will be using the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper to make these six great cards and this awesome box to put them in. I will provide everything you need for all six cards (including envelopes) and for the box, as well as coffee, water and a light snack. All you need to bring is your adhesive. Payment is due when you RSVP.


How about more of the beautiful Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper? When you RSVP for the April 21st class (details below), you can do a $10 "add on" and make this beautiful frame too. This would make a great Mother's Day gift! If you want to do this "add on" be sure to let me know when you RSVP for the class.

You can also take this class "On The Go".   I will snail mail you directions and all the materials you will need for all 6 cards and for the box.  Cost for "On The Go" is $30.  If you want to also make the frame "add on", your total cost (including shipping) is $45.  Please note it is against Stampin' Up! policy to mail stamped images, so you will need to provide your own stamps and inks in order to complete your cards.

BOKEH TECHNIQUE!



Last week one of my customers and friends sent me a link to a video showcasing the Bokeh (pronounced boquet) technique.  I have seen samples with this technique all over, but it looked extremely difficult, so I never got around to investigating how to do it.  Well, the video made it look extremely easy, so "That Michelle" and I gave it a shot.  It was very easy and very fun.  I can't wait to try it using some different shapes.  Maybe stars or hearts???

MORE SOMETHING LACY FROM STAMPIN' UP!


I recently hosted an Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration swap for some demonstrators, and this card was my submission.  I used the Something Lacy Background Stamp from the Occasions Catalog, along with the Lotus Blossom FREE Sale-a-Bration Stamp.  The base of my card is made with the Circle Card Thinlits Dies, and when you take off the belly and, the card flips open and you can see the back of the circle.  It is sort of a 3-D Card.

SHELTERING TREE FROM OCCASIONS CATALOG!

We made this card last month in the Rubber Room.  I taught/reminded my customers about the crayon-resist technique.  This is the perfect stamp set for that technique.  Not familiar with the technique?  What you do is:

1) Stamp your image

2) Color areas you want to stay white (in this case those areas I wanted to look like snow on the branches) with a regular white crayon

3) Stamp and/or sponge color right over the crayon!

VOILA~~BEAUTIFUL!
