Painted Glass Sympathy Card

Hi Stampers,

Today's card is made with ......yup, you guessed it.....Painted Glass stamp set. I just had to use my new Tufted embossing folder on the gold sheets. They look like quilted puffs. I used gold embossing powder on the medallion stamp and the sentiment flag.




Remember, if you would like to recreate this card, you can order all the supplies in my online store. Make sure you add the supplies to your shopping cart today!!!

Painted Glass Flap Fold Card

Hi Stampers,

Man!! Is it hot here in Michigan!!! It got up to 93 degrees today. It felt closer to 100. WAY TO HOT for me!!! Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter at 95 degrees and heat index of 110!!! In fact, we have heat warnings for the next week or so. I am only a summer lover to about 80 degrees --- that is hot enough for me.

Today, my card is a sympathy card. These types of cards aren't a favorite of mine but I do like to have them on hand. I used my new Tufted Embossing Folder. I heat embossed the rose in clear embossing powder to give me some lines that stood up to coloring with the new blends. I also heat embossed the sentiment.





Make sure you add this much needed bundle to your shopping cart today!!!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #222-Black Magic


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.
