Botanical Blooms and Sponge Daubers

I am starting to play around with the March Technique, Direct to Paper (DTP) using Sponge

Daubers.  I really like how this card turned out, I found out that by using sponge daubers to apply the ink to the stamp and then stamping created a softer and more watercolor look.

Here are the products that I used:

Thanks for stopping by, watch your email for the class invite, I should be getting them out next week.

Busy in My Stamping Studio!!

I have been busy creating some new cards to use in my classes, swap and playing with new layouts!! And I just couldn't wait to share them with you!!

Here is a card that I just completed yesterday for a swap that I am participating in for a swap that my Up Line, Kelly Acheson is sponsoring.

This card is so pretty in person, that the camera just can't do it justice!  I used the new Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle to this card, I just LOVE this new tool that I got from Stampin' Up!!

Here are the products that I used:

Here is another card that I have been playing with, we will be making this card at my next Technique Class coming up on Monday, March 8 or Wednesday, March 10.  It is called a Drapery Pleat Fold and I have to tell you, this card was a lot of fun to make!

Here are the products that I used:

    I hope that you enjoyed these cards, I have highlighted the different supplies needed so that you can make these cards yourself.  If you need other supplies, please go to my Stampin' Up! store:  Cindys Stamping Studio Store

    What's Happening!!
    SAB is still in Full Swing and 3 new stamp sets will be added on February 16, and three will be retired. Be sure to place your $50 order so that you can get these sets for FREE.
    *Outside Orders Qualify to be entered into a drawing for some Designer Series Paper stack, this 6x6 paper is just perfect for card making and can be found in the Occasions mini catalog or Annual Catalog.  Note:  it is necessary for me to receive 3 outside orders in order for this to work. If I do not receive enough orders, I will still send you a beautiful pack of 4 All Occasions Cards.
    *Hostess Code You Will Need: I am again offering a Hostess Code for any outside orders, the code is:  QFJAEJFM  It is necessary to use this code if you place an outside order.  Be sure to select me as your demonstrator, Stampin' Up! will notify me that you placed an order.  VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure that the box that says "Do Share my Information with Demonstrator" is NOT checked.  If it is checked your order will come through as Anonymous and I won't know who placed the order.
     In Closing, I am already working on the March Technique which will be Direct to Paper with Sponge Daubers.  These cards are sure to be fun and I can't wait to share the with you, so stay tuned.
    Happy Stamping!
