O.K., so the kids are all now back in school, despite the
interruption of Tropical Storm Fay and the threat of
Hurricane Gustav. I was sure that all you stampin’ moms
would have some first day photos to show off or send to
the family, so I designed this make-n-take project with
that in mind. It also shows off some of the wonderful,
new Stampin’ Up. In Colors from the new catalog along
with the new scallop border punch, the tab punch, the Full
Calendar and Tart and Tangy stamp sets,
plus the Nursery Letters wheel, which is a must have
supply for school themed projects, (in my opinion).
I also did a 12 x 12 layout that I hope to photograph
and post on the blog later this week. Hopefully,
we won't be threatened by anymore hurricanes.
Stay away, Josephine!!!
With fall just around the corner, I wanted to demo
the cracked glass technique using the new Stampin’ Up
Level 3 hostess set, Happiness always. I also showed
how to use your stamp positioner for mounting the set.
This technique uses the Versamark pad and layers of
Glassy Glaze (a thick, clear embossing powder) which was
used on the project, heat set, put in the fridge, then cracked.
Needing a cute note card in a hurry? Try combining
the Fresh Cuts stamp set and note cards. Here, I used
Pumpkin Pie ink with Pacific Point. I sponged ink around the
die cut flowers using a scrap sheet to protect the inside.
To make it a true note card, I added the layer of solid
cardstock behind the die cut so the note would not show
through the die cuts. I used Baja Breeze CS for the center
flower along with an ice blue rhinestone. A matching
envelope was done using the leafy stem and Pacific
Point ink stamped on the envelope’s flap.
