Monthly Stamping Club Card #2 - Dryer Sheet Technique

Hi Friends!

Wow, I can't believe what time it is!!!  I guess I dropped the ball on my post today.  But better late than never I think.

The second card we created at the April Monthly Stamping Club is the Dryer Sheet Technique.

The card above is made using the Petal Passion designer series paper, then it was coloured with Stampin' Blends.  But the one we made at the club stamping day was using the Petal Garden 6x6 designer series paper.  It took less time than doing all that colouring and the patterns are gorgeous.

To do this technique you add a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the front of the designer paper. Then you apply a used dryer sheet (unscented).  Trim the excess dryer sheet off, and push the designer paper into Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  We used a tray so we could push real hard and get lots of glitter.  You can then use your finder or the back of a spoon to burnish the glitter into the dryer sheet.  Voila there you have it, blinged to the max!  Just add ribbon and a sentiment and you are done.

I hope you get a chance to give this great technique a try.  If you want to join my Monthly Stamping Club just EMAIL ME and I am happy to discuss it with you.  You can be local or "virtual".  As long as you live in Canada!  It's easy.  And once you become a member of the club, you get access to exclusive videos I create for the 3 projects we do each month!

April Monthly Club Card #1

Hi Friends!

Yesterday was the Monthly Stamping Club stamping day.  Once a month I get to stamp with a wonderful group of Ladies. They come and make 3 projects, and have some treats, coffee and tea. Each member has a minimum order they must place to continue in the club, and once during the rotation every stamper gets to be the Monthly Hostess!

I will have another club starting in September. If you are interested, please EMAIL ME.  You can live locally and join us in person, or you can live elsewhere in Canada, and be a "virtual" member. I have some virtual members and it works out great!  If you have any questions, please ask me any time.

This is one of the three projects we made yesterday. Each month we do 2 techniques and 1 card using designer series paper.  This card was inspired by Linda Parker.

I had not done this "Chalky Embossed Flowers" technique before, and I love it!  It is so easy, and the flowers have such an impact.

We did the one above at our stamping day, and I also did the one below to show how you can colour the leaves (as above) or the flowers (as below) or you can colour everything.

I did find that you have to use the Dark version of the Stampin' Blends for the colour to show up.  I used Dark Old Olive for the leaves and Dark Cherry Cobbler for the flowers.

1.  Stamp images in VersaMark and emboss with Gold Embossing Powder
2.  Using Whisper White Craft Ink reinker and an aqua pen to colour the images
3.  Allow the ink to dry completely (you can gently use your heat tool to do this)
4.  Colour the images with Stampin' Blends as you like

I added some White Perfect Accents to the cards to add some contrast without adding more colour.  I am truly sad that these embellishments are retiring as of May 31, 2018!

Thick Whisper White 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
Gold Foil 5-1/4 x 4 (cut scalloped oval out of this layer before adhering to your card)
Night of Navy 5-1/8 x 3-7/8
Whisper White 3-1/2 x 2-1/2

A list of supplies can be found under my signature. Just click on any of the images to go to my Online Store to get more information, or to place your Canadian order.  If you place an order online, please use the Current Host Code which can be found on the right side of my blog up near the top in a bright colour.  Right now the code is:
