DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #222-Black Magic

#222

Hi Stampers,

This week for our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge we have a product spotlight using Watercolor Pencils. If you have them, you know how great they color. They are smooth as silk. A few weeks back my upline, Dawn Olchefske, posted some cards on her blog utilizing the Black Magic Technique. This is such a cool technique and has been around for a long time but I have never tried it until now. All you do is stamp in White Craft Ink (let it dry naturally) or use your heat gun as it does take a little bit for it to dry on Basic Black or any other dark cardstock. Then you just color and highlight with the chalk marker (if you want). For those that like the ever popular adult coloring books this would be great for you to make your own!!!

I used the Melon Mambo watercolor pencil. Then I just cut freehand around the flowers.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #218-Sequin Trim Flower

#218

Hi Stampers,

I am FINALLY able to participate in this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. I made my card up this past weekend so I would be ready for a change. This week's challenge is a product spotlight-ribbon and trims. I know all of you know how to use ribbon on your cards. I challenged myself to come up with a way to use the sequin trim. It seems like I have so much of this left. I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch for the flower petals.  I actually made 2 cards for this challenge. I hope you like them and they inspire you in some way!!!

Hi Stampers,

We are having a product spotlight for our challenge this week. I know a lot of you just LOVE this product-washi tape!! It makes sweet and simple cards but still has that WOW factor. Since I don't send out Halloween cards, I only own a couple of the washi tape groups so my pickens were pretty thin to do this challenge!!! LOL
