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!!!

Why are masculine cards so hard for us to make?  It is probably the most requested card at my classes--because we always need them!  So, here's a simple one we made at my Stamp-a-Stack last weekend:

CARD: Whiskey Business for the Paper Players

Good morning!  This card was created for the Paper Players Challenge #554--a clean and simple masculine card!  Simple cards are super easy--I do them all the time!!  But the "clean" part--well, not so much!  I gave it my best shot for this one, and it turned out pretty cute!  Masking was used to make the glass appear in front of the decanter!  And I couldn't resist the Matte Black Dots, which might make it not "clean"! haha!
