Greeting Card Kids – Paintchip Technique

Welcome to the fourth and final 2010 VC Rocks Bloghop.. you've most likely arrived here from www.beantowngrasshopper.blogspot.com.  If you want to start at the beginning of the blog hop, you can start here – www.vcrocks.blogspot.com

One of my favorite new sets in the catalog is Greeting Card Kids.  I usually prefer 2-step bold-style stamping…because well…I'm a lazy stamper somedays.  I don't like coloring in very much.  When I do purchase line stamps, I try my best to use the stamps in different ways without coloring.

I love to check out the hardware store for paint chip and counter samples.  Now, it's not that I don't want to paint the rooms of my house or change out my countertop, but my color choices would be much more mundane than the samples I take home!  Oh, the treasures you find in these places!  Here is a Christmas Card I created using a crackle paint chip:



I think that crackle paint chip looks like Jack Frost made a visit!

That little snowflake accent is actually from the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder!  I JUST LOVE THAT NEW FOLDER!

What is VC Rocks…and why do I love it??  VC Rocks is an online community where members share their love of stamping before, during, and after the Stampin' Up! convention.  If you can't go (or even if you can) to convention, you can get your "stampin' mojo fix" with challenges, swaps, and discussions!  I have "met' many fabulous stamping demos and nondemos through this group.

Thanks for stopping by, and now your next stop is –   http://www.lorimpalmer.blogspot.com/
