I do love to learn new techniques and try them on cards and layouts. In conjunction with this month’s promotion of “Make your Mark” and the great value in the markers and selected stamp sets I have made these two cards which both use the ‘direct to rubber’ technique.
My first card is done using the Heartfelt Thanks set, water color joy wheel and the soft subltles cardstock and stampin’ writeÃ‚Â® markers. I have also used the stamp-a-majig to line my outline stamp perfectly over the flower and stem, the tool kit to pierce the twill and cardstock so my brads go in super easy!
The following card is done using the Greetings Galore Stamp set, cream grosgrain ribbon, soft subtles cardstock and stampin’ writeÃ‚Â® markers. I was just testing to see how this stamp would turn out using the different colours from the soft subtles and just love the soft muted tone on the Very Vanilla cardstock – it makes a nice change to all those red & green christmas cards!
Now if you would like to know how to make these cards then give me a call or email me to book a demonstration – or you could get in early and book in for my ‘Christmas in July’ stamp-a-stack.
What is a stamp-a-stack? Ã‚Â
A stamp-a-stack is where you get together with 4 or 5 of your friends and you all get to make 10 cards in one night – 5 each of 2 different designs.
Now doesnt this sound like fun? If you are nodding your head then ring or email me today to get all the details and book your workshop in before all the available spots fill.
