Resist Embossing Technique

Love this Technique!!
Using the Festive Flurry snowflake stamp set with this technique is wonderful and so graceful looking.  The Island Indigo ink with the white snowflakes really make the snowflakes pop!  Above you will see 2 cards that I did with this technique.  Why, you ask???  I did this for my Technique Club and couldn't decide which one I liked better. 
This is the one that I decided to use for the club.

I decided to use this one because it was so clean cut and simply but yet elegant.  My club members loved it!  I know this technique has been around for awhile, but I have some newer stampers in my club and it is nice to show them the older but yet fabulous techniques.  Another thing that I believe makes the card is the Silver Glimmer cardstock.  Always have to have some bling!

I do still love how this one turned out.
Another thing that is so great about the Festive Flurry stamp set is that you can buy it in a bundle with the Festive Flurry Framelits.  NO cutting out the snowflakes by hand!!!!  Love that Stampin' Up! is coming out with a lot more bundles. 
Products that I used on the 1st card are:
Cardstock and inks:  Island Indigo, Whisper White, Glimmer Silver and Versamark ink.
Stamp Sets:  Festive Flurry and Warmth & Wonder.
Accessories:  Heat Tool, White Embossing powder, Embossing Buddy and Sponge Dauber.
Happy Stamping!

This is challenge from last Thursday.

A little delay

These are my precious Grandkids!!!
They are the reason that I miss the DOstampers Thursday challenge this week.  I was crafting their Halloween gifts.  I made them the Chiclets Gum keepers, Tic Tac Holders and another treat holder for a Kit Kat Mini bar.  I know it is early for me to get this all done, but I needed to get it in the mail so they have it in time for Halloween.  These are my daughters children.  They just recently moved from here in MN to TX.  First time for all of them to be out of MN and away from Mom/Grandma.  It is a very hard adjustment for all of us at this point.  But it is getting better day by day.  I do have 2 more grandkids still here in MN that are my sons children.  Of course they are getting the same treat holders as the others ones.   You know how that goes....have to keep it the same!  LOL
I promise I will get the challenge card done and post it here.  Along with as many of the DOstampers links to their wonderful creations.  Today's challenge is a sketch challenge.  I will be posting in the next couple of day. 
Thanks for understanding.
Happy Stamping!

Spot Lighting HI

How cute is this!!!
I cased this card from a swap I received at convention this year.  The credit goes to Lorri Heiling for such a wonderful card.  When I swap with Lorri I was so thrilled to get this card.   First thing that came to mind was TECHNIQUE!!!  Besides the point that it is such a beautiful card.
I did use this card in a Technique Club that I hold once a month.  I think it was a great card to use your stamps in a different way.
Stampin' Up! products that I used in this card is as follows:
Cardstock and Ink:  Crisp Cantaloupe & Ink, Coastal Cabana & Ink and Whisper White.
Stamp set:  Secret Garden (Framelits are also available to cut out images)
Accessories:  Big Shot and Typeset Alphabet Dies

The one thing that I will say with this technique is that you have to press hard when stamping.  And DO NOT rock your stamp when inking it or stamping it.

Color Challenge Thursday

Great color combo!!!
I like challenges, it gets the creative juices flowing!
Our demonstrator group is having challenges every Thursday.  It could be a color combo or a sketch challenge.  If you would like to join us that would be great.  Just email me the link to your creation and I will post it here

The Stampin' Up! products I used to make this card are as follows:
Cardstock & Ink:  Crisp Cantaloupe, Early Espresso & ink, Daffodil Delight.  For the "Thanks"  I inked the stamp and then stamped off before stamping the Thanks.  It was to dark otherwise.
Stamp Set:  Harvest of Thanks
Accessories:  White Tea Lace Doilies, Natural Trim Ribbon, Burlap Ribbon, Vintage Trinkets, Big Shot, Pretty Print Impressions Folder & Apothecary Framelits.

I also use the NEW Envelope Punch Board!!!  This is how I made the file folder tab on the card.  If you haven't tried one of these....YOU HAVE TOO!!!  I really wasn't sold on it until I got my creative little hands on it and started playing.  All I have to say is WONDERFUL!!

I hope you liked the Color challenge card that I have come up with.  Come on and join us!

Here are cards for other DOstamper's!  Go check it out!

Masking Tape Grateful

This is an wonderful and easy Technique!

I have to thank a fellow Demonstrator for the inspiration for this card.  I received a swap from Convention using this technique and fell in love with it.  I just love the In Colors that came out this last time.  They are so warm and inviting!

My technique club members loved this technique!  They said it was so awesome and easy!  I do hold a Technique Club in my home once a month.  In my club I teach members 2 different techniques, with these techniques they make a card using each technique.  I also have directions typed out so that they have the recipe to recreate the technique at a later date.  If you are not in town, but you are still interested in joining?  You can get the class to go!  Have questions, just let me know and I will get you your answers.

Stampin' Up! products use to make this card is as follows:
Cardstock & Ink:  Crisp Cantaloupe & ink, Very Vanilla, Pistachio Pudding & ink, Baked Brown Sugar & ink and Chocolate Chip.
Stamp set:  Truly Grateful (set is currently in the Holiday Catalog)
Accessories:  Baked Brown Sugar Stretch Ruffle Ribbon, Sponge Dauber and Masking Tape.
I do have to say...when I first saw the ruffle ribbon I just wasn't that sure about it.  But the more I use it on projects, the more I am falling in love with it.  It adds so much to your projects!
