"Tie Another One On"

So today I was experiementing with the whole tie dye effect again but this time I used glossy paper.  I must admit I had to take a couple of tries because I kept getting the glossy paper too hot.  I do like how easy the ink is to spread around the glossy paper versus the regular cardstock.  But today I used it as a background image instead of the focal point.  I used some spellbinders label #2 to cut out the shapes with the big shot.  These are comparable to the ones that Stampin Up sells I just dont' have them yet....(being new and all)
**They are listed here:  Item # 125598.  These retail for 27.00

Here is my card.....would love to see what you are doing with this technique
Have a great Saturday!!!! xoxo Stephanie

Tie Dye Card #2

Ok so I thought I would try another card using this Tie Dye method with embossing.  I relaly like the way the colors mesh together.  Today I used the Mixed Bunch stamp set and sponged Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry together.  The base card is Rich Razzleberry with the mat as old Olive.
I hope you enjoy.....if you use this technique I hope you leave your samples as replies.
Here are the images for the products used. All products can be purchased on my website click the SHOP NOW tab at the top of the page :)

Technique Tuesday (embossed resist)

Ok, so last night as I was waiting for my son to fall asleep, I rambled through the wonderful world of You tube video tutorials. This is an area that I have not yet ventured on my own. I came across this GREAT video about embossing resist. The sample on the video was done on glossy paper and since I am trying to put one of my own samples up with each video I had to try this. Well,,,,,,don't you know I didn't have any glossy paper so my card turned out like a tie dye. Much to my girls thought that it was super cool. I hope you have fun playing with this technique and create many beautiful cards and projects. I plan to get some glossy paper this weekend and try it again. Until tomorrow xoxo--Stephanie This is my "tie dye" sample......not too bad for the first gentle :)

Folded Flower tutorial

Wow, I apologize in advance for waiting a week between postings.....I have had one thing after another this past week. 
Today' is MANIC MONDAY and with that I am going to show you a tutorial for folded flowers.  These are so simple to do, however I differed from the video slightly.  To soften up my flowers I didn't have a crimper so i ran them through the sizzix with the perfect polka dots folder about 4 times flipping them over each time to break down the paper.
My paper is DSP is summer starfruit , I used Soft Suede on the paper as well as the flower to antique them a little.  I really like how these just pop off the paper. 
I would love to see yours if you choose to try them leave them as a post and we can enjoy the beauty of our work.
Until tomorrow----xoxo Stephanie
