Reflection Technique

Good morning!  I have the most wonderful stamp club imaginable!  They are so much fun, and soooo talented!  It's a challenge each month to show them something new!  But, they're really great at requests, and the reflection technique was a request this month!  We had done this years ago, but they wanted a "refresher"!  

This card is done with the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set:

Nov cc 6

To do this technique (in a nutshell!):  Stamp your image onto your cardstock.  Then, stamp the same image onto a piece of window sheet.  Use this piece as a "stamp"--flip it over, and lay it where you want your "reflection".  Give it a rub to make sure you get all the ink transferred to the cardstock.  That's it--so simple!!  Just remember--your reflected image doesn't have to be perfect--it's a reflection on water!!

To color this card, we used the Blending Brushes and ink pads:  Pacific Point, Garden Green and Daffodil Delight.

Today is the last day to join my team for only $75!!!


Supplies used:

Embossed Angel

Good morning!  Today's card features the beautiful little angel from the Angels of Peace Stamp Set:

She's embossed in Copper, then colored in with Stampin' Blends--Night of Navy and Just Jade.  Her wings are colored in with Wink of Stella--so sparkly.  Oh--she is embossed on Vellum Cardstock--such an elegant feel to it!!

I am a huge fan of the Survivor series!  It's so much fun!  I'm also a member of a "Stampin' Survivor" fb group!  At the beginning of the season, we're randomly assigned a survivor, and when our person is voted out, we send cards to all the remaining people!  It's so much fun to receive handstamped cards!!  

Here are three of the ones I've received so far this season:

From Nita:

Survivor nita

From Barbara:

Survivor barbara

from Tamra:

Survivor tamra

Aren't they great?!!   Do you watch Survivor?  Who's your favorite this season?  My assigned player is Danny--wish me luck!!

Tidings & Trimmings

Happy Saturday!  Here's a fun card that uses a hodgepodge of product--the Tidings & Trimmings Stamp Set, Tidings of Christmas AND Heartwarming Hugs DSP, the Christmas Tree Dies and for sparkle, the Wonderful Gems!  Oh, and don't forget the beautiful Gold Fine Art Ribbon!  With that list, you'd expect some super over-the-top card, huh?  Nope, just this simple beauty!

Nov Christmas 1

When I design cards for my classes, I try to keep them "flat", so that they can be mailed easily.  After all, that is the point! haha!!  So, while a bow would've looked pretty, it just doesn't go through the mail very well.

What do you think?

Here is the official list of products--if you see something you like, just click on it, and you'll be taken to my online store!  I really appreciate all your orders and support!  (Click HERE to see how I show that appreciation!)

A Tropical Christmas!

Good morning!!  Isn't this adorable?  I received a card last year with the palm tree from Timeless Tropical, and just had to make it this year!  This sentiment from Best Year was a perfect match!

Nov Christmas 2

For the Palm Tree, we used the Early Espresso and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers and colored directly on the rubber.  Give it a huff, then stamp!  Fun and easy!  The ornaments are Holiday Rhinestones--the colors are so rich, perfect for Christmas tree ornaments!

Don't forget--today is the last day for the Seasonal Sale!  I think I purchased every color of cardstock!! (and maybe a few dies that I "needed"!!)


Here are the products used on today's card:

Snowflake Wishes

Good morning!!  I love snowflakes, so when designing cards for the last of the Christmas Card Classes, I just had to go back to an old favorite, Snowflake Wishes!  

Nov Christmas 3I paired it with the gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Paper and the Wonderful Snowflakes!  And, if that wasn't enough, I also embossed the sentiment panel using the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders!  Not sure you could fit anymore snowflakes on a card!!   It's really pretty in pink!!
