It's been a while since I've posted — and I've got several new things to share. I hope you enjoy these.
In my October hostess clubs, we made these two cards.
The first one is a faux tear technique. We tore a sheet of grid paper, then used removable adhesive to secure it over part of the card base. Then we sponged Cajun Craze in a circular motion over the exposed part of the card base. We stamped various stamps from the French Foliage stamp set over the sponged area. Then a couple of leaves from the Leaves 2 big shot die and a couple of torn pieces of cardstock with a sentiment stamped on one of them. Viola! A lovely card with very little effort!!
Here's a close up on the sentiment and the cute little tag (a vintage mini tag).
The second card in our October hostess clubs is a little unusual.
Start with Crumb Cake cardstock base, then layer black cardstock. We used the emboss resist technique on the newspaper print designer paper. Stamp images from one of my favorite stamp sets, A Day of Gratitude, with Versamark on the newspaper print.
Here's a picture of the whole card. The embossing on the newspaper print really stands out. We also stamped the larger leaf from the stamp set in Versamark, embossed it and then cut it out.
Once again I have to tell you that I saw these techniques used on other ladies' cards and really liked them – I liked them so much that I wanted to copy them and share them with you.
Tomorrow I will share one of the cards we are doing for November hostess clubs.
If you would like more information about these projects or would like to be part of one of my hostess clubs, let me know. Thanks for stopping by. I hope something you see here inspires you to stamp!!
