Technique Tuesday


As promised yesterday, here is the technique of the week!
Give it a try. 

This week we will create a “FAUX LINEN” look with a stamped image! To begin, rub a sanding block or sandpaper over a piece of glossy white cardstock, from top to bottom and then side to side. Next, ink a sponge or sponge dauber, and rub the ink over the sanded surface to create the linen look. Finally, stamp your image! 
* TIP: You can also stamp a background image on the cardstock before sanding.*


What are some techniques you'd like to see posted? What are some techniques you use?
Let me know and I will post them here in the future.

Happy Stamping!

Happy Monday!!!

Happy Monday all! I do not have a project for you today as I am working on items for my 25 days of christmas event. I will have a technique of the week for you tomorrow. Check out some of my new links.
There are links to...

1. My online IDA (here you can sign up to be a demonstrator)
2. Featured projects for Nov/Dec
3. Stampin' Success for customers

Start thinking now about hosting a workshop/catalouge party/or workshop in a bag event with me starting in January. I got a sneak peek today of the Spring catty and the sale-a-bration brochure and let me just tell you, Stampin' Up! has some exciting new products to share.

Thanks for looking, and as always,
Happy Stamping!

Baby Shower gifts galore...

I went to a friends baby shower today, and I just had
 to share the gifts I made for her...

 I made her card from on I saw on Stampin' Connection 
(a demonstrator only website) done by Erica Jones.

This cute little owl was made using a template by Lynn Pratt...
I made 25 of these little guys as thank you notes.

 My second ever diaper cake! I love making these things. 
This one was done by me and two friends 
as a joint gift for the shower.
This is a view from the front...

A view from the side...

From the back...

And from the other side!

 I also made her a few scrapbook pages and put them in a nice binder.
This way she has a starter book for her new baby!!
This is the front page..

Another layout...

 A page for baby and his big sis...

Let's not forget big brother...

And a final layout for miscellaneous pics!

Hope you enjoyed all the photos!
Happy Stamping!!!
