Is your birthday coming up? My husband just reminded me today that June is just around the corner, as in next week! Ack! That means my birthday is even closer than I thought!!!

Anywho enough with the exclamation marks! These colours are great together, but it makes it hard to take a great picture of them.

Stamps: Party Hearty, Happy Happy Birthday Jumbo wheel
Ink: Baja Breeze, Taken with Teal, Sage Shadow, Versamark
Paper: Baja Breeze, Taken with Teal, Sage Shadow, Whisper White
Accessories: Baja Breeze wide ribbon, stampin dimensionals

A Baby Card

May 21, 2009 in
This is my second attempt at the emerging colour technique (check out my journal cover here)and another card over here. It's a great technique, I used Whisper White card stock but you could use designer series paper or perhaps a different colour other than white. Stamp on your base colour, let it dry then pass your embossing buddy over the whole piece and then stamp in versamark your images where you want your colour to emerge! Next clear emboss those versamarked images and once cooled coat the whole piece in a darker colour. Viola!

Stamps: Nursery Necessities
Ink: Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Almost Amethyst, Versamark
Paper: Perfect Plum, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Accessories: Button Bouquet, glue dot, sponge dauber, clear embossing powder, embossing buddy
card purseThese are so easy to make! I've made three of these now and they will make great gifts! Check out my other Card Purse from my March Class to see those cards. The next 2 cards complete the set, along with these 2 cards I posted last week. And isn't the center piece of the purse darling? I used my new Watercolour wonder crayons to colour directly onto the stamp and them spritz lightly with water and then stamped on watercolour paper. It took a bit of experimenting to get the right amount of water, but it's a really cool effect!
