Steampunk Marci

Here is another card I made using a LaLa Land Marci stamp.  I had some friends over for a class and am sharing it with more today.  I love the blending of two colors that are very different.  It really had a tie dye kind of feel and I love tie dye.  I also had fun with my sprays.  Radiant Pearls spray and some Tattered Angels were used on the gear background.  I found some various papers that had a plastic basket weave, another that looked like leather and another shimmer piece.  I made a a 5 looped bow with brown twine and tied it around the rose.  I really hope you enjoy as it has been fun to have my friends coloring along with me. I can't wait to see how everyone's comes out.

Daisy Faerie Marci

I have also been having fun with my copics.  I'm sharing a card I made with Daisy Faerie Marci from LaLa Land. She has the same color outfit as Tinker Bell.  I have been showing friends how to get more comfortable with their copics.  I think the LaLa Land stamps are a good way to practice blending because you have spaces that have a little more room to work with.  I added some stickles to the wings to give it a nice shimmer. The tulips were airbrushed with my copic markers.  I really have had fun using my airbrush to add some great colors to items that can match my colored images perfectly.   Enjoy.

Happy Birthday

The last card I'm sharing from my class on August 19th is a simple Birthday Card.  This can be used for any type of card you need and it a great idea for any last minute cards you have to make.  I used some pattern papers from the same collection so they coordinate.  Layer them on a solid cardstock for a border.  Layer them in the center of the card but just a little off from each other and add a banner in the center with whatever sentiment you need and you have a great quick card anyone would enjoy receiving.  This is also a great thing to make several and put them together without a sentiment.  That way you have some cards ready when you need them.

I really hope you can join us on August 19th for my Fun Stampers Class.  It's always a fun time and you leave with 4 cards you can replicate and make with other stamps you already own.  Enjoy.

Butterfly Prints

I love Butterflies.  Today's card is a fun card I made with bright colors and a old stamp set that we just released a matching die for.  I love that I don't have to fussy cut my butterflies anymore.  The best part is every time I would cut them out I would slip and cut of the antennas off.  Now with the die I get to keep my antennas in tack and don't have to draw them in.  I used direct to paper technique with the center rectangle.  I like the look of a paint swipe on the paper.  Enjoy

Spring Filled

Today I'm sharing the next card for my Class.  I used the new stamp set and matching dies for the Spring Filled Set.  I love pinks and greens together plus I had just purchased the adorable ribbon I used and had to find a project for it right away.  I used a Spellbinder embossing folder for the background and I used a ball stylus to curve the petals of the flowers.  I like to do that on the back side to give the flowers some dimension.  I hope you like it.

Just Saying

I'm back.  Work has been crazy and then I had Shop Hop every weekend and before I knew it a month has past.  Well, I have been still making cards and projects so I have lots to share.  Today I'm sharing a card we will be making in my next class at This N That Scrapbooking on August 19th, from 6 pm to 8 pm. I had fun making this card and using a new stamp set called Dad Code.  It's an ATS set with 3 stamps.

I was stamping with this set and it all came together for me.  I added some hexagon die cuts to the background on Rock Candy a few banners and here is what I came up with.
I thought it came out so stinkin cute.  I just love it.  I hope you like it also.  I will share the rest of the cards over the next week. You can find this stamp set and lots of other things on my Fun Stampers Page under catalog. The catalog link is in the upper right hand corner.  It was just updated with the latest stamps and dies.  You can also find out information about our big event where we will learn about lots of new product and have some great projects we get to create with our goody bags.  Hope to see you there.  Happy Stampin
