Technique Class….

I’m a little behind in posting the cards we have been doing at our Technique Class.  These have been running every 2nd Sunday arvo at the Caloundra Community Centre.  I am really enjoying them as it has gotten me out of my comfort zone & my thinking cap on as I try to cater for the tastes of everyone, while at the same time creating cards that are a little bit different. 

Each week we do one card that has a different fold & one standard card while still having fun doing our techniques.

This card was using the Acetate & Tissue Technique.  Combined with some Christmas DSP & a faithful stamp set that I don’t think you can beat – Lovely as a Tree and you have a great Christmas Card

Supplies –
Stamp Set – Lovely as a Tree, Short & Sweet
Ink – Staz-On, Old Olive
Cardstock – Old Olive, Whisper White, Bashful Blue
DSP – Letters to Santa
Punches – Oval, Scallop Oval
Ribbon – 5/8″ Satin – Chocolate Chip
Accessories – Stampin Dimensionals, Tombow Glue, Re-Inkers – Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Snail Adhesive, Dazzling Diamonds, White Gel Pen, Crystal Effects
Non-SU – Tissue, Acetate

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

New Technique…

I did this card quiet sometime ago.  In fact, it was for Father’s Day – so I must apologise for not having any measurements.

I found this great Technique – Acetate & Tissue, over at Splitcoast Stampers.

Base Card – Garden Green Cardstock
Layer 1 – Very Vanilla
Layer 2 – DSP

Layer 3 – Tangerine Tango
Layer 4 – Very Vanilla
Using Snail Adhesive, I adhered the DSP to the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock & then to the Base Card – Garden Green.
I stamped the boat image direct onto the piece of Acetate using Black Staz-On Ink & set aside to dry.
I stamped the tree images onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Garden Green Ink.
With the piece of stamped Acetate, I applied Crystal Effects all over the back, ensuring the Effects were covering a large part of the Acetate.  Once this was done, using my Garden Green Re-Inker, I applied a couple of random drops onto the Crystal Effects & moved it around with my finger until I was happy with the look of the coverage. 

At this stage, I added a little of Dazzling Diamonds to give it a little bit of a lift & some sparkle behind the Acetate when finished.

I then added a larger piece of tissue over the whole lot, turned the Acetate over so that the front was now facing me & placed it over the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock & pressed into place.  I trimed the piece to the size I wanted which in this case, was slightly smaller than the Tangerine Tango Piece I was adhering it to.

This whole piece was adhered over the top of the DSP & to the Base Card.

I stamped the greeting onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock using Tangerine Tango Ink, punched with Oval Punch & adhered to piece of Bashful Blue which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  I applied this to the card with SU Dimensionals.

The final result for this technique is really stunning & has so much potential.  I must make another card using this technique again.
