Polished Stone

Hey there Bloggers!

It's Monday... and it's July 31. I can't believe that another month is gone. Tomorrow I'm able to place a pre-order for items from the new Holiday Catalogue! Which means that Christmas isn't that far away... but I'm still going to enjoy the warm weather for awhile :)

For today's card I went back to an old technique...Polished Stone. For this technique, emboss your background image using clear embossing powder on a piece of Glossy Cardstock. Then you take a cotton ball with Rubbing Alcohol on them. Using three different colours of re-inker, put a dot or two of each onto the cotton ball. Then dab onto the Glossy Cardstock. This makes a very cool background and will resist where you have embossed your images.

Straw Blowing Background

Hey there Bloggers!

Today I got the opportunity to check out one of the new Product Suites that will be featured in the upcoming Holiday Catalogue. I can't wait to share it with you, I know you're gonna love it. Unfortunately, you have to wait a little while longer...

But I can share this fun technique with you... Straw Blowing Background. For this background, put a few drops of re-inker into a container. Then take your Aqua Painter and add some of the re-inker to it.   Take a straw and blow through the Aqua Painter onto your cardstock piece. I also used the Wood Words stamp set.

Clear Block Background Stamping

Hey there Bloggers!

Sunday....Funday :) I've had a very busy week and it was very nice to be able to have a nice relaxing day. 

I wanted to thank the ladies that joined me this week for my Card Buffets. I always enjoy it when a group gets together to create some cards and I hope that they all had a good time. 
Look at them hard at work:)

Today's card is another one from my Stamper's Club. On this card we inked the clear block in three different colours, then we spritzed a little bit of water onto the block. We then stamped it onto the card front to create the background.

Waxed Paper Embossing

Hey there Bloggers!

Hope you are having a great week! I was lucky to get to have lunch with a friend yesterday that I haven't seen in a long time. So nice that she was able to stop as she was going through town. 

So, today's card uses the Waxed Paper Resist technique. This was a card that we made in my Stamper's Club a couple of months ago (yes I realize that I'm way behind in posting LOL). We also used the Flourish Thinlits and Flourishing Phrases stamp set.If you'd like to check out this technique you can find it at
