Starting to get sad!

I have enjoyed the catalog this year!   Lots of great stamp sets and accessories.  Another favorite stamp set is the background stamps called Sunflower.   I thought this was a great stamp to be the focal point on a card with a saying below it!   Really sad to see it go!

More oldies...

by ktstamps, 4:32 AM

I have been getting gifts ready for some of my favorite teachers who are leaving next year.   My goal is to make them a box of cards!   So I have been working like a "MAD WOMAN" creating cards.   I am so sad to have these teachers leave that I just had to create something special for them!

This first card is made from two of my favorite techniques called Crayon Resist and Faux Tearing.   Stamp the images you want and outline them with crayons then sponge in color.   BUT before you add color, tear a couple of post-its and place them to the cardstock.   Sponge your colors and leave some white on your you the illusion that the paper has been torn!


Stamp set: Gently Falling, Oh Hello

Ink: Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Black Stazon

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Glossy Cardstock

Accessories: 3/8" Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Woodgrain Embossing Folder,  Crayons, Stampin Sponges

Another technique is using the Crimper.   Stamp you images on a piece of card stock, mine was 1 3/4" wide.   Place it in the Crimper for texture.   Taking your 2 way glue, put glue in all the valleys.   Add Dazzling Diamond Glitter when finish to give your card some shine!


Stamp set: Gently Falling, A Birthday Greetings (Retired)

Ink: Early Espresso, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green, Cajun Craze

Cardstock: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green

Accessories: 2 Way Glue, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Crimper, 1/4" Elegant Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon

Less than two weeks before the new catalog comes you want a catalog?   Let me know!

Oh Hello there!

by ktstamps, 6:36 AM
I have been working with the New Blendabilities that will be in the 2014-2015 catalog.   I don't know how to use them very well but I am loving the effect.   I held off for a long time buying Copic markers.   All my stamping friend were telling me how wonderful they are and I need to add them to my stash of crafting supplies.   I am so glad I waited.   A card is on my Facebook gotta check it out!  I will be doing a lot more of this coloring stuff!

I have a few more Oh Hello cards left to show you.   I will be doing starburst or sunburst technique and Washi tape.   Hope I am inspiring you!   Again, I am casing cards and they inspired me a lot!

You may not know that I love purple.   Anytime I see purple I get excited.   I used markers and ink.   I tried doing the top half the flower on my elegant eggplant ink pad and the bottom of the flower with Always Artichoke.   I love those colors together!   I stamped Happy Birthday on the inside of the card.

Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Always Artichoke

Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Modern Medley
