I had a fun weekend making cards, which I will put in the mail and send off to my OWH shipper this week. Promise! I've got to put my card making aside temporarily and get ready for a crop next weekend.
I've been catching up on technique videos and was getting overwhelmed with the amount of information. I decided to start a notebook with notes and samples of different techniques. I included notes from the Creative Chemistry class as well. Here's my notebook:
I hope this will help me utilize more of the techniques that I've seen.
This week's OWH sketch went together so easily for me. I used pink marbled paper and then stamped Aged Mahogany with the Hero Arts diamond stamp. While the ink was still wet, I pounced Perfect Pearls all over the stamped image and set it with a slight mist of water.
The rest of the card came from the June Simon Says Stamp kit, including the papers and stamps. The corner rounder I used on all the paper edges is from Creative Memories. Here's my card:
Here's the sketch:
I also made more masculine cards this weekend for OWH, using various inking and embossing techniques. I just love the image of these three men and I use it often on my cards:
I'm very excited to take another card class - this one is called "Stretch Your Stamps". I've bought most of my stamps from Ellen Hutson and I couldn't wait for the class to start using them! Let me know if you're taking this class too!
