I've been super busy cranking out Quinceañera invitations. They are done and delivered. I saw on Facebook that my sweet client is super happy with how they turned out. Since she's already seen them, I can now post a picture here. I bought this oh so cute digital stamp from Stampin Up and my sister found the verse online (don't know the author). I made a Silouhette cut file for the dress and found a cut file for the envelope. It was a lot of work but well worth it to see the smile on my young client. Now to continue with my niece's wedding invitations. I'll post a picture once I'm done.
Today I took a break from the wedding invitations to participate in a StampTV challenge. The challenge for this week was to make a card using the kissing technique, isn't that a great name, gotta love it, LOL! If you haven't seen this technique, check out this video from Gina K. I had fun with it and I'm sure you will too.
I did the kissing technique using two sizes of leaves from Gina K's Whimsical Wishes stamp set. For the larger leaves I inked the stamp with Memento Bamboo Leaves and 'kissed' it with Lacy Borders inked with Potter's Clay. For the smaller leaves I used New Sprout also 'kissed' with Potter's Clay. This technique is fun and versatile.
Another technique I tried was with the sentiment. I first inked the stamp with Versamark, then with Bamboo Leaves; stamped on vellum, poured Super Fine Detail Clear embossing powder (Ranger) then used the heat gun. This gives the sentiment a glossy finish and a slightly raised look. I will definitely be using this technique again. Here's a close up:
This is all for now, until next time.
Hope you have a wonderfully creative day!! Hugz and Blessings!
