May Technique Class

Our group is embarking on our series of technique classes. This is our technique book where they will paste the directions to the technique on one side and make a small version of the techniques to put on the other side .
This is the first card we made using several techniques, but focused on the Smooch Sprays and brayering. We brayered the image from the Presto Patterns DSP(SMC pg. 15 #117175) with Old Olive Ink, then spritzed it with the gold and vanilla smooch sprays.

Deb Forguson's beautiful card, learning the new bow techniques which is featured on page 5 of the SMC. Love this bow, super WOW effect to add to your card.
Sandra Heck is the newest member to our group! This is one talented lady! She is a natural stamper. She participated in our card challenges on her 2nd class and boy they were beautiful.
I love her card here, very beautifully water colored. So glad to have you with us Sandra. She is the first member of the BIG SHOT #3 club which will run from July - September . Want to Join? Email me for details!!

This is another version of the same brayered Presto Paper card done in Melon Mambo
and smooched with Vanilla. The new Island Floral Big shot die cut is displayed in this picture along with he NEW Island Oasis paper from the SMC pg 27 #117173 $9.95. It has a matching stamp set perfect for making Luau party favors and invitations!!

I used a piece of whisper white card stock brayered it in Melon Mambo & used the Vanilla smooch spray which added a frosted sheen to it. Then I used my heat gun to make sure it was dry and then I stamped the image from Elements of Style stamp set in whisper white craft ink and embossed it with white EP and embellished it with Melon Mambo polka dot ribbon.

This is another sample of smooching and brayering the presto papers. I used Old Olive to brayer the base and then added gold and silver smooch spray to get this look.

This is my favorite! I used River Rock(a previous season in color that WILL BE RETURNING to the new catty coming out in JULY!! I can't wait. Then I used the silver and gold smooch spray and sponged it in. Heated it and made sure it was dry I used my embossing buddy and stamped the image from Elements of Style(SMC pg 5) in gold Encore ink and embossed it in gold EP.
Used the same technique on this top note then stamped image in choc chip CRAFT ink and embossed it with the CLEAR embossing Powder. Boy it really pops!

I did not brayer this image, I just sponged the silver and a dab of gold and vanilla smooch sprays to make this base, then I embossed it in gold. I must have made 10 birds before I got them the color I wanted. This is my version of the card from page 5 from the Summer Mini Catalog.

I think every one really enjoyed themselves, I know I certainly do every time we get together. I realize how truly blessed I am.
Hope you enjoyed a visit into our class and hope you will join us some day!
