June Technique - Tie Dye

The Tie Dye Technique is very popular right now; it is also very easy to do.  With this technique you can create the look of Tie Dye by applying ink to a coffee filter.  The ink takes no time at all to dry, you then adhere the dyed coffee filter to a piece of white cardstock that you plan to use on your card.

Just like the days when you use to take a white shirt and tie it and then dye it, this is the same thing!  Take a coffee filter and gently smooth it up, now crumple it up!!  That is correct, you want some crinkles in your filter.  Then fold your filter accordion style.  Take a half of a baby wipe and wrap it around a "G", this will be your stamp.  You will want a block for each color ink that you use. Ink up the baby wipe stamp and stamp the block on the filter, first on one side and then on the other side.

Once you are done, gently unfold the coffee filter and let it dry; this will take very time at all.  You will want to adhere the filter to a piece of white cardstock so that you can attach it to your card base.

Let's look at the cards that the ladies made at class:
Card #1 - Tie Dye Sunshine
 This card just says sunshine and summer to me.  I love the Tie Dye colors of Dapper Denim, Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist. Fun Tip for this card, after stamping the sunglasses using black ink, we used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to apply a thin layer to the glass part to make the glass of the sunglasses.

Stamp Set:  Pocketful of Sunshine
Ink:  Dapper Denim, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist and Black
Paper:  Lemon Lime Twist Base, Black Layer, Whisper White and Woodland Textures Designer Series Paper for the Sunglasses
Accessories:  Pocket Framelits, Dimensions, Rhinestone Gems, Fine Tip Glue

Card #2 - Oh So Eclectic Tie Dye
We used the Sahara Sand and Flirty Flamingo inks for the Tie Dye of this card and then stamped the flower stamp from Oh So Eclectic over the top of this for a little dimension.

Stamp Sets:  Oh So Eclectic, Lovely Inside & Out (Inside)
Ink:  Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Flirty Flamingo
Paper:  Crumb Cake Base, Early Espresso Layer, Whisper White and Flirty Flamingo
Accessories:  Eclectic Layers Thinlits, Dimensions, Glitter Enamel Dots

Card #3 - Thinking of You - Gate Fold Card
This lovely card is made using coordinating Designer Series Paper that goes with the Colorful Seasons stamp set.



Stamp Set:  Colorful Seasons
Ink:  Memento Black
Paper:  Black Base, Whisper White Inside, Color Theory Designer Series Paper for the Front
Accessories:  Whisper White 2" Circle, Adhesive Strip for the Chair, Glitter Enamel Dots, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Triple Banner Punch

I hope that you enjoyed our June Technique - Tie Dye and will want to try it yourself.  If you would like to purchase the kit to make these three fun cards please contact me by sending me an email or leaving a message on this post.  My email is budy98@yahoo.com

June Kit Class Cards

This past Tuesday was our monthly Kit Class; I always look forward to this class, a great bunch of ladies get together to stamp and visit!!  We have fun, the cards always are a hit and I am always so impressed at how well everyone get along.  If you live in the Neillsville area and would like to try stamping with us, you are more than welcome.  The cards are easy to figure out, I try to keep it simple and you decide how many cards that you want to come. If you are not in the Neillsville area, the cards are available by mail and will come to you with everything you need to make the beautiful cards.  The cards are not stamped (per Stampin' Up! policy) but you can order the stamp sets from me or substitute similar stamps of your choice.  Just email me for more details.

Here are the cards!!
Card #1 - Lovely Inside & Out!
A fun tip to make this card so much easier, adhere a strip of Adhesive Sheet to the black piece of cardstock before you run the "Lovely"through the Big Shot using the Lovely Words Thinlet.  After you are done, it is a breeze to adhere the word to the card.

Stamp Sets:  Lovely Inside & Out
Ink:  Black, Sweet Sugarplum
Paper:  Berry Burst Base, Whisper White Layer, Black scraps, Sweet Sugarplum scrap
Accessories:  Adhesive Sheets, Heart Framelit, Lovely Words Thinlets, Dimensions

Card #2 - Hello Baby
A person always needs a few baby cards on hand, this cute card was so easy to make.  A helpful hint on this one is that there is only Designer Series Paper (DSP) on the outside edges (not in the middle) a great way to use DSP scraps and not a whole sheet that will be covered up anyway!

Stamp Sets:  Moon Baby
Ink:  Black
Markers or Watercolor Pencils:  Blushing Bride, Soft Sky, So Saffron, Bermuda Bay
Paper:  Soft Sky or Powder Pink or So Saffron Card Base, Whisper White Layer, 2 strips of DSP, Soft Sky Layer for Whisper White piece
Accessories:  Dimensions, Aqua Painter, Metallic Enamel Shapes

Card #3 - With Sympathy

Using the Eastern Palace stamp set and coordinating Designer Series Paper, Eastern Palace Thinlits and Eastern Gold Stickers made this card pop!

Stamp Sets:  Eastern Beauty, Better Together (Inside), Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig
Paper:  Very Vanilla Base, Tranquil Tide Layer, Eastern Palace DSP
Accessories:  Eastern Palace Gold Stickers, Eastern Palace Thinlits

Card #4 - Happy Anniversary
What an easy card to make and would be suitable for a Happy Retirement or Happy Birthday card!

Stamp Sets:  Beautiful Bouquet, Wild About Flowers
Ink:  Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist
Paper:  Berry Burst Base, Whisper White Layer, Lemon Lime 2 x 5 1/4
Accessories:  Glitter Enamel Dots, Dimensions, Bouquet Bunch Framlits, Berry Burst Ribbon, Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder

Card #5 - Good Friend
Sometimes the most simple card can say so much, this card was just beautiful in person!
A helpful hint for this card; by using Memento Black ink you can stamp directly on the Wood Textures DSP and have good results.

Stamp Set:  Lovely Friends
Ink:  Memento Black, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Cherry Cobbler Base, Black Layer, Wood Textures DSP

And there you have it, I hope you enjoyed the cards.
Cindy

June Technique - Thinlit Stamping

Using inexpensive fun foam, you can create stamps from your thinlits that do not have a matching stamp!!  How cool is that?!!

Here is what you do, go to your craft section and purchase fun foam, you can get it in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets.  Cut a square of fun foam that will be big enough to cut your thinlit out with.  Run it through your Big Shot and attach it to an acrylic block with adhesive, ink it up and stamp!!  It couldn't be easier!

Please note that framelits will not work as well.  These foam stamps are quite versatile and you can use them over and over.

Let me show you the fun cards that we created using this great technique!

Card #1 - Thank You Butterfly
Isn't this great?!  The Butterfly Thinlit does not have a matching stamp but with fun foam, we do now!
 Stamp Sets:  Daisy Delight, Hardwood
Ink:  Fresh Fig, Sahara Sand, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist
Paper: Tranquil Tide Base, Fresh Fig Layer, Very Vanilla 3 3/4 x 5
Accessories:  Glitter Enamel Dots, Butterfly Thinlit, Fun Foam

Card #2 - Sending You Hugs
The background for this gorgeous card is made using the Love & Affection stamp set, just add ink and stamp!  We used a post it note mask so that we could leave the center blank.
 Stamp Sets:  Lovely Inside & Out, Love & Affection
Ink:  Early Espresso, Powder Pink, Wild Wasabi, Tranquil Tide, Daffodil Delight, Sweet Sugarplum
Paper:  Berry Burst Base, Sweet Sugarplum Layer, Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5
Accessories:  Layering Circles, Linen Thread, Glitter Enamel Shapes, Berry Burst Woven Ribbon

And now I want to share with you are Fancy Fold Card using the Daisy Delight stamp set and Matching Punch.  This stamp set is also the June Stamp of the Month and can be purchased as a bundle, saving you 10%.

Card #3 - Happy Birthday
 Stamp Sets:  Daisy Delight, Birthday Blossoms
Ink:  Black, Wisteria Wonder
Paper:  Wisteria Wonder Base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, Whisper White (Inside Layer) 5 1/4 x 4, Delightful Daffodil, Calypso Coral
Accessories:  White Accents, Daisy Punch and Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper

Did you notice the center of the daisy?  Well that is a White Accent that we colored with a yellow Sharpie!  You will also will want to stamp and punch out two daisies, curl them with a bone folder and then glue one on top of the other to create a beautiful daisy!

Here is the inside of the card when it is opened up, I just love this card!  In fact I made a bunch of Thank You cards, which I will share with you on Facebook in the days to come!!
