Welcome! Thank you for taking a moment in your busy day to relax with me. I greatly appreciate your visits and your comments.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I had been in Chicago, actually Schaumburg, for a gathering of stampers. Besides learning lots, catching up with old friends and making new, one of the highlights of the gathering was the swap. We were asked to make 40 cards and at the end of Friday's classes, we spent some time swapping. I love going back to my room and laying all of the swap cards out on my bed.
It's always so much fun to see all the amazing creativity and different styles. These will go on to sample boards to have out at my classes.
I chose the Pineapple stamp for my swap card.
If you read my earlier blog featuring this stamp, you'll know that I cut this stamp into two pieces. It made it MUCH easier to create 40 cards!
I used watercolor paper for the main image. I stamped the bottom half of the pineapple in Delightful Dijon. With the thick end of my Chocolate Chip marker I carelessly traced the lines on the stamp. I gave the stamp a spritz of water and stamped my image. Pear Pizzazz was used for the top of the stamp. The sentiment is from the Layering Love set. The DSP is Delightful Dijon from the In Colors stack. I added a bit of linen thread to finish it off. I had lots of compliments on the card. The shading from the marker provided a realistic look.
I'm working on the tutorial for the box I featured in this post. I've only done one video tutorial, so it will take me a bit to get it right. I'll have it for you next week.
Again, thanks for stopping. Wishing you an enjoyable day!
