Stamps: Simply Said
Cardstock: Raspberry Tart DSP, Chocolate Chip, Confetti Cream
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Rose Red
Accessories: Fiskars Cutter (for scoring), Sanding Block, Vintage Brads, 5/8" Chocolate Chip Ribbon
The technique on the DSP is really fun (thank you to whoever originally posted this). You score the diamonds on the paper, then fold along each score line and sand till it's white. After that, you apply ink to the sanded fold. Really cool huh?
Okay, now for last week's sketch:
Stamp Set: Fifth Avenue Floral
Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Shimmer White
Inks: Chocolate Chip Craft, Chocolate Chip Marker and Tangerine Tango and Summer Sun reinkers
Accessories: Clear EP. Tangerine Tango Striped ribbon, Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain, Stampin' Up! Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates for Big Shot.
Again, I got the idea of putting little dots in the corner of each diamond from someone on the net. I love the way it makes it look kind of like a lattice. The technique for the flower is the popular Floating Reinkers.
So, what else have I been doing lately???? Well, I'm very excited to announce that I am teaching two classes at the Grapevine Stamp Convention in July!!!!!! One is called Texas Fold 'Em and will feature cards with fancy folds and a couple of folded embellishments. The other is a Basics class for people new to stamping. If you are in the area, I hope you'll come and take these. You can register online through http://www.heirloompro.com/
The other really fun thing I'm doing is playing Eulalie Mackecknie Shinn in "Music Man"! We are peforming it at our church this coming weekend. It's at Arlington Heights United Methodist Church in Fort Worth this coming Friday, Saturday evenings and a matinee on Sunday! Contact me for ticket info!!!!!
