A few new projects!

After a busy weekend, I finally had time to do some stamping today! YAH! These are the 4 projects that I will be teaching at my Adult Ed Class this week !!

ANTIQUE TECHNIQUE – Using Earth Colors, Choose a light color (so Saffron) cardstock and a slightly darker ink (More Mustard). Once image is stamped (Choc Chip) sponge More mustard heavily around the edges, and getting lighter toward center with no ink on the very center. Then use Darkest ink (Choc Chip) and smear pad lightly on very edges. This gives the cardstock and aged, antique look.

PUNCH OWL- You will need 1 Choc Chip Scalloped Circle (cut in ½), one white scalloped circle, 1- 1 ¾ " circle, 1 five petal flower (you only need 1 petal) 1- boho flower punch (only using ½ of one flower), a Round Tab Punch, 2- ½ " circles, and 2- ¼" circles. Adhere together as shown!

PAPER PIERCING- Using the the Mat Pack Paper Piercing template and a paper piercer or hat pin, line up the template to the edge of the area you want to paper pierce. You can poke holes in any pattern you want such as every hole, every other hole, zig zag, a triangular shape etc. For an added effect, use a white gel pen and connect the holes you poked to give it a Faux Stitched look.

Also note this is a Scalloped Note, that I scored 1" from the edge and adhered to a 6x6 piece of cardstock to make it an opening card.

A TWIST TO EMBOSS RESIST- Using craft inks and clear embossing powder, emboss in the colors you of your choice on glossy cardstock(sage shadow, almost amethyst) Then Brayer over it with a light color (blush blossom) ink. Take a darker ink (cameo coral) and using the very edge of the pad, lightly swipe it across the cardstock to make thin lines. Lightly wipe off all excess ink with tissue.

Hope you enjoy them! Thursday, Emma and I will be finalizing our stamp camp projects for the Stamp Camp we are holding on February 28th and getting the supply orders ready!
