thank-you-flowersHere is a sneak peak of one of the cards we will be doing at club this month.  Remember club is switched to January 21st this month because I will be out of town.

huges-kisses Here is a card I made using the technique from last month (rolling with the punches) .  I used the new heart to heart punch and hugs and kisses set in the Valentines pack.  I just love this Valentines pack.  I can’t wait to see the new catalog.

Technique Tuesday 1-6-09

This technique is fairly simple but I love it.  It works best with a bold image like this one: Upsy Daisy set #1111710 for $18.95.  This was another card from Brandi’s Card night at her meeting.  Once again I don’t know the Creator but I love the card.  I created a similar one for club.  You can check it out by clicking here.

First you want to choose to complimentary colors to create your image.  Here we have chosen Baja Brezze and Pacific Point.

Next you want to stamp your whole stamp in the lighter color.  Here it would be Baja Brezze. 

Then ink up your sponge dauber with the darker ink, Pacific Point in our example.  Use the sponge dauber to ink just the tops of the flowers.  Just touch it lightly to th tops.  This give the flowers color and dimension. 

Last stamp your image onto your paper.  One of the fun parts of this technique is that every card is truly different.  If your stamp colors are close like these two there is usually no need to clean your stamp in between if you are stamping multiple cards.

This card is finished by applying Kiwi Kiss ink to the edges of the top note paper and adding the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin ribbon along with the Maine Blueberry DSP.

So go ahead a try out this fabulous technique today.
