Holiday Wreath

2017.07.20 Tim Holtz PoinsettiaThis simple card features a Bigz Die by Tim Holtz.  The wreath is easily die cut and the leaves pull out.  The wreath is embellished with red glimmer berries and a glimmer bow.  The easy background is designed by running Whisper White thru the Big Shot in the Brick Wall embossing folder.  The Watercolor Wash stamp is then inked in the color of your choice and stamped on the debossed side of the card stock.  This gives a quick, but very interesting, background.  The  Christmas sentiment is stamped in red and die cut with a stitched rectangle die.

Now you have seen August Stamp Camp cards that display coffee cups, a silhouette garden scene, pigs, and a wreath.  Which cards will you choose for August Stamp Camp?  If you really like one particular card, you might choose to do all 4 of that card – or maybe you like the different offerings, and choose to do 1 of each.  That choice is totally yours.  But you will need to let me know by July 31st which cards you choose to do.

August Stamp Camp will be held on August 3rd from 12 Noon – 6 PM, on August 4th from 2 – 6 PM, and August 5th from 9 AM – 4 PM.  The cost for any 4 cards is $12.00.  Additional cards are $2 each.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

In the Garden

2017.07.20 IN THE GARDEN

This simple but eye-catching card uses the Taylored Expressions die “In The Garden.”  The watercolor wash on glossy paper uses Soft Sky and Marina Mist.  First, the glossy cs is misted with water; then the blended inks are brushed on generously with the aqua brush.  Finally, the cs is allowed to dry and cut to size.  The die is adhered to the bottom and then to the white frame using a strong adhesive. ;

TIP:  An easy way to add glue to the back of intricate die cuts is to take put a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on your silicone craft sheet.  Use a wedge of sponge to press the glue onto the sponge.  Then press the sponge onto the back of your die cut, remove gently the sponge and voila, your die cut is ready to adhere to your card stock. The glue on your silicone craft sheet can be easily wiped off.

Clouds are stamped from the “Lift Me Up” stamp set, cut with the matching dies and popped up with dimensionals.  The knotted black satin ribbon adds interest , texture and dimension.

“In The Garden” is the second offering we have seen for my August Stamp Camp on August 3, 4, and 5.  Remember to let me know by July 31st which cards you wish to do.  You can do any 4 cards for $12.00.  Additional cards are $2.00 each.  Check back soon to see the next blog – “This Little Piggy".”

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns!  Blessings, Rosemary – (h)630/759-3089 – (c)630/965-1965 – paperrose01@aol.com
