A Few New Cards

It's been ages since I've had a chance to update my blog. We are on Spring Break so I have a little time to get a few extra things completed.

Here are a few cards from March's Stamp Club. We had a great time. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month. Hope you can make it some month.

This card utilizes the chalk emboss technique. I used SU!'s white embossing powder to emboss the image on marina mist cardstock. After letting it cool off, I used chalk and a Blender Pen to paint on color over the white embossed area. I used Spray Clear Acrylic to spay over the image several times to lock the chalk into the embossed image. Cardstock colors are Marina Mist, Rose Red and Perfect Plub. Iused the Elegant Lines embossing folder to dry emboss the Perfect Plub cardstock. The main image is from the SU stamp set Just Believe.

Who??Who??Who?? is the wise old owl that is graduating this spring? I used the SU owl punch to make this wise old owl. The branch is from SU's bird punch. The cap in the background is from the Sock Monkey set. I used the tag punch and folded the top part of the tag down to make the cap for the owl. The folded part makes a great tab to attach the cap on to the card. The 'congratulations' comes from the set Perfect Punches. Cardstock colors are Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Black and So Saffron.

This card uses the Poppin' Pastels technique. The floral image from the Water Color Trio set is stamped using Versamark. I used sponge daubers to pat on chalk across the versamarked images. Cardstock colors are Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Certain Celery. Chalk colors are Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink, and Close to Cocoa


These two cards were made by using the chalkboard technique. I stamped the image on black cardstock using white craft ink. Then, used the sponge daubers to pat on the chalk color across the image. Stamp sets are Extreme Skateboard, Extreme Elements and Extreme Guitar. Cardstock colors are Basic Gray, Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant. The 1 1/4 and 1 3/8's and 1 3/4's circle punches were used.
