This upcoming Friday I am hosting a Stamp Camp here at my home and I will be teaching a 'honeycomb' technique using the Full Heart punch (119883) that I saw over on Lydia's blog www.understandblue.blogspot.com click here for her tutorial. Here is the card that we will be making:
(Found at Bath & BodyWorks)
Stamps: Fabulous Phrases
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler
Access: Full Heart Punch (119883), Bird Builder punch (117191), First Edition DSP (121878), stamping sponges (101610), Vintage Trinkets (118764)
I loved this technique so much that I thought the heart could also make a cute pumpkin?? I tried and didn't like it...off in the garbage it went. Then I asked the hubby his opinion and voila~
I added some newbies for this one, the textured background on the Old Olive CS is the new embossing folder Lacy Brocade (127819) LOVE it!! It is found on pg.6 in the Holiday Mini catty. I also used the fun Scallop Tulle ribbon in Crumb Cake (127840)...this I am ORDERING LOADS of...I can't express how many uses I have for all three colors of ribbon (pg.4). I just wrapped it around the Very Vanilla CS and tied with linen thread. Added a tag stamped with Old Olive and an image from Tiny Tags (118592 C). I punched it out along with an Early Espresso CS piece with the Small Oval punch (120908). It's attached with a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets (118764). Roughed up the edges a bit...sponged them a teeny bit...then added the shimmer (everything looks better with shimmer!!).
Here is the inside:
That's it for now...making other goodies, dinner then getting the kids ready for bed...off to school again tomorrow. It's weird that they went back for such a short week lastweek. They get another short one this week...I suppose it's nice to break em' in easy! No homework yet...
