Card Class

This weekend I was a part of a Women's Weekend that our town was putting on. I was asked to teach a card class. ( I'm the one standing). For the class we did the box with cards that I have posted here earlier. We only had 1hr and 15 mintues for each class so I had everything pre-cut and punched, so all they had to do was stamp and put together. Even so it was tight, but we had lots of fun and I meet new people. I had put a business card and a technique ooklet in each package so I'm hoping to get some leads from that. I had 2 groups , 16 stampers in all.

Coloring Ablums

Would you like more colors in the Linen ablums?
Well look no further. You can have any one of SU's 48 colors plus the in colors. This ablum started out as natural linen album, then colored with pumpkin pie. Mix equal amounts of reinker and water in a bowl. Take your ablum apart and lay it flat and use a sponge to apply the color. Let dry and sponge again to make sure the color is even. For this 12 x12 album we used 3 reinkers. We are coloring another one Blue Bayou and it is going to need 4 reinkers. It seems the darker the color the more reinker it takes. I have also colored one with perfect plum

Great Fathers Day Set.

"For Father" is a great set that I HAD to have when I saw it. Ilove line art and coloring. The new chocolate chip poly-twill is great ribbon. It is so smooth and lays so nice. A few more colors would be great.

Time Well Spent

This card is made with the stamp set Time Well Spent which is the Level III Hostess set Take SU sent to all their demonstrators. For this card I stamped the images on White cardstock and colored them with the markers, cut them out and then put them on the card. I used ruby red and garden green cardstockfor the main card.
You can earn this set by hosting a workshop with sales of $750.

More Rub ons

Wow! What a quick way to decorate a plain pillar candle. I used the brown rub ons from the SAB package "Love and Happiness". These are so easy to work with. In just minutes you change something from ordinary to something stunning.

Using Rub Ons In Home Decor

I got my SAB rub ons yesterday and today I used some of the white ones to decorate the glass in my dining room cupboard doors. I had been wanting to etch the glass but never got it done, so when SU came out with the rub ons I decided to use them instead. This way it isn't permanent and if I ever want to change them I can without changing the glass. They were easy to apply. Without the glare from the flash they look awesome.

I have had great fun with this Level I hostess stamp. I love all things flowers so this stamp caught my eye as soon as I saw it. It is a great stamp for any of the coloring techniques. For this card I used the Watercolor crayons and my aqua painter. This is one of my favorite coloring techniques. I stamped with versa mark and then embossed with black emboss powder before I colored. This give a sharp image.
The words are rub ons.
This stamp has been very popular with my Hostesses. It has been the #1 pick for most of them.
