PAPERTREY INK STAMP-A-FAIRE 2017 - Iron

I had to really think about iron.  I finally came up with the idea to use Ten Second Studio VerDay paint.


I die cut an opening in the iron paper and put a background i made a while ago behind it.  I die cut a leaf stem and attached a hello that I used some gilding flakes on.

Thanks for stopping by.



PAPERTREY INK STAMP-A-FAIRE 2017 - Tin & Aluminum

I really had a hard time with this one.  I had so many ideas, which one to do.




I found the silver tape in my stash.  I have it in 3 different sizes but only used the 2 smallest.  I used silver Nuvo gilding flakes on the thanks and the center of the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by.


PAPERTREY INK STAMP-A-FAIRE 2017 - Bronze

This was fun.  I used embossing powder for the bronze.


After I colored the flowers and attached the thanks the card still needed something.  I rubbed a VersaMark ink pad on the edges of my card and used the same embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by.


PAPERTREY INK STAMP-A-FAIRE 2017 - Leather

This class was about faux leather.  I did this technique years ago but had forgotten about it.




As you can see I made a birthday card.  I think it would be a good one for a man.

Thanks for looking.

PAPERTREY INK STAMP-A-FAIRE 2017 - Wood

This class was to make a card with wood.  The teacher used an embossing folder for the wood element.  So I did also.


I really had fun with this card.  I know I covered up a lot of the wood but it's still there.

Thanks for looking.



PAPERTREY INK STAMP-A-FAIRE 2017 - Paper

I really like Papertrey Ink's stamps and dies so I thought I'd follow along with their Stamp-A-Faire.  They are doing 10 mini classes because it's their 10 anniversary.

The first class was about paper.  We were to use scraps to make a card.


As you can see I die cut stars from a Papertrey Ink die and glues them to a navy card.  I then added the sentiment toward the bottom right.  This was an easy card to make.  

Thanks for looking.

OCC Rainbow Maker - Day 6

The last day of class was using additional ideas to make cards using rainbow colors.  I made 2 cards for this homework.  The first one is using Nuvo crystal Drops.  I only have a few so I colored the white with distress inks.



For my second card I used washi tape.  I really like this card.


This was a great  class.

Thanks for stopping by.
