Back in Time..

Remember when at school we had Chalkboards? Lucky for us, the Faux Chalkboard technique gives you the look but none of those sounds… This is my simple card from this past weekends class. I used a white pencil to add some doodling to the corners.

Kinda Eclectic..

I love all things Retro and the starburst (that’s what I call it..) from Kinda Eclectic stamp set is Perfect! Triple layering was very popular not so long ago and it works great with these Retro color layers instead of just white. What do you think?

Back to Tiling..

Faux Tiling Technique was everywhere at one point. Personally I have not seen it used in a while, at least without sticker sheets from Office Supply Stores… Sometimes it’s nice to go back to those easy but brilliant techniques. This is my version.

Remarkable You..

This was one stamp set I could not wait to get my hands on when it first came out. Love the bold lines of these images! To create the puffy look on the vellum I used my stylus on the back side of the image while it was on top of my foamy piercing mat. Imagine all these images colored instead…

Final Reflection!

The old faithful, Lovely as a Tree stamp set. If you don’t have these classic trees, what are you waiting for? You can create tons of different looks based on the season. Sponging makes it easy. Use blue tones for winter and greens for spring or summer in addition to these warm colors for Fall. Since Florida is not known for colorful foliage, we can at least pretend in cards! For the reflection side I wanted to add some shimmer like a lake and ended up using Stampin’ Up! retired shimmer spritz. Hoping we would get something similar back into our catalog. Love the effect.

Playing with Reflections…

For the month of October I received a request for Reflection Technique, using a tree of some type. Since it is the Fall season, I wanted to create some colorful foliage we here in Florida don’t see. This was my first draft.
