Demo Class Projects

I went to a demonstrator class this past Friday where we kreated 3 cards and a cute 3-D project. Great fun to be with other demos and stamp and not be the 'teacher' :) These cards are not my design, simply CASED (copy and share)from our teacher Tina.

This first card, is using the baby wipe technique - which I actually had never done before. You kreate your ink pad on a baby wipe with a few drops of different colored reinkers. Ink up your stamp on the newly colored baby wipe and you have a multi colored/ tie-dyed type image. Fun :)
Stamp: Simple Friendship
Paper: Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac, Whisper White
Ink: reinkers: Pink Passion, Lovely Lilac, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Tempting Turq Brads (Bold Brights)

This next card is using your Aquapainter. I can not wait to own this new set, Fifth Avenue Floral. The images were inked and stamped on watercolor paper and using the Aquapainter, lightly 'pulling' ink into to the image for a very soft watercolored look.
Stamp: Fifth Avenue Floral
Paper: Rose Red, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Basic Grey, Black Stazon
Accessories: Rose Red Grosgrain, Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain, Black Grosgrain

This last card is also done with a technique I have never really done before, but will definitely use it in the future. This was done with emboss resist and the NEW Big Shot die Movers and Shapers Curly Label. Simple run your paper through the Big Shot with your curly label movable piece to your desired location and it cuts and scores your card and pops out the adorable curly label. So cool!
We stamped the Sweet Stems flower randomly over Whisper White with Black Craft ink and then embossed with Clear EP. Used an Aquapainter to color in the flowers with Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, and Kiwi Kiss. Then using a VersaMarker, went over the entire flower and embossed with Clear EP again. Finally using a dauber, in circular motions, applied Kiwi Kiss over the entire card. Ink will resist the embossed images (hence, emboss resist technique :) ) so using a paper towel, rubbed over each flower and you get a shadowing effect where the clear embossing was. May have to click on the photo to enlarge and get better view. I hope that makes sense. Easy enough to go a play around with or you can view this tutorial on SCS to get a better idea. When I got home I added the Pacific Point ribbon as well. This was my favorite of the 3 designs we CASED from Tina. Thanks Tina and fellow INKsisters it was fun.
Stamps: Sweet Stems, Fresh Cuts (sentiment)
Paper: Pacific Point, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Black Craft, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Tango Tangerine, VersaMarker
Accessories: Big Shot, Movers and Shapers Curly Label Die, Clear EP, Aquapainter, dauber, heat tool

If you have any questions on the above cards, I'm here :)

Tomorrow I will be sure to show you the cute 3D project - if you love all the birds and owls, you don't want to miss it.

For now, go kreate :)

I was wondering how that Curly Label worked! Thanks for sharing such wonderful projects. I can't wait to try the watercoloring with the Aqua Painter like you did with Fifth Avenue Floral! Hugs, Mary

They are all so pretty, Kim.

The first one reminds me of you because of the butterfly.
