Butterfly Pennant Punch Card

At my Crazy About the Pennant Punch stamp camp, we created an adorable butterfly.  The colors captured in the photo aren’t true to the actual card.  Colors used were Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay along with our Confetti Celebration DSP.

Beautiful Bunch – Tie Dye Circles Card

At my Technique Tuesday class this week, I taught my stampers the Tie Dye Circles technique.  I love this technique – it is a great watercoloring method.

You will burnish three colors of various intensities into your watercolor paper – lightest shade first to cover the largest area and then move in with your middle shade.  Finally, you will sponge in the darkest shade in the center – but keep in mind to go for a more natural look – it looks more artistic and whimsical with varying circles.

You will then take an AquaPainter (or a plain paintbrush and water) and go around the circles – again, starting with the lightest.  You are basically taking away ink from the circles.

Set aside and let dry or, if you are in a hurry, use your heat gun on it!

Finished this card off with seam binding, the butterfly punch and pearl, and a phrase from A Dozen Thoughts.  My color combination was Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, and Blackberry Bliss!

Blended Bloom – Daffodil Delight Blendabilities Card

At my Try the New Tools Night a few weeks ago, my stampers couldn’t wait to use the new Blendabilities markers.  This stamp set makes it so very easy to look like an artist!  I had several sets out so my stampers could take their time with their creations.

Did you know you can use the Blendabilities markers to color in pearls and gems?  LOVE THAT!

This is a perfect summer birthday card!

Camper Punch Art

It has been a rough few weeks – one of the big obstacles for me and my blog is my watermark.  For some reason, my WordPress blog is no longer liking the watermark I’ve been using for over 3 years.  I’ve tried to reload it, rework it, and it is just leaving me frustrated and sad.  If you are a WordPress blogger and/or know what I need to do to fix my watermark, please let me know.  It is getting the best of me!

At this week’s Mardi Gras Punch Stamp Camp, this was one of the favorite cards!  I used the Window Frames framelits for the main camper section, Retro Fresh DSP, and the You’re Lovely stamp set to create this card (along with several punches of course).
