Pictures from the New Catalog Luncheon































Here are some of the pictures from the New Catalog Luncheon that we had on July 23rd at Mi Tortilla in Riverside. Sorry I put the pictures of the luncheon at the bottom and the pictures from the Double Fold CD Album that we made. One picture is of one the samples I made and then the other is one when the album is open and you can see 2 of pages.

I have done a lot of stamping this weekend, so I have quite a few pictures to post this week. So hopefully I can get some new posts to my blog.
Have a great week.

I used the new melon mambo embossing powder on the big flower. On the whisper white card stock, I stamped on the whisper white and then put in the square lattice emboss folder.

SU Eastern Blooms (Black Magic Technique)

This card we made at the Retirement Party for discontinued items from Stampin' UP. The technique used for this card is called Black Magic. It is fun technique to use. You need a solid stamp, stamp in on black or dark card stock with the Craft Whisper White stamp pad. Then use the heat tool to set the ink. You will need the watercolor pencils and you need 2 colors of each color to us (light and medium or dark). You need to have a contrast in the colors in the watercolor pencils. I colored in the center of the flowers and the for the contrast used the darker color in the outside and a little to pull/blend the colors of the lighter color. I colored one side the stem in one green and the other side in a darker green. Then for the smallest flowers I used the white gel pen to put white dots in the center of the flower dots on the largest flowers and the swirls. The largest flowers have pearls in the center.

Here is the recipe:
Eastern Blooms stamp set (discontinued stamp set)
Basic Black and Marina Mist card stock
Craft Whisper White stamp pad
Polka Dot emboss folder
Scallop Trim Border Punch
Marina Mist 1/8" taffeta ribbon
Basic Pearls Jewels
Heat Tool
Watercolor Pencils
Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen

Thank you for visiting today. God Bless.
