Crop Make n' Take

This was my make and take for a crop that I was a vendor at yesterday. The medallion stamp is from Stampin' Up! and I knew I wanted to incorporate it somehow. So, I stamped the medallion on confetti white using versamark ink. I then used my daubers and chalks to add the color. It's a great technique called Poppin Pastels and it gets you to dig out those chalks! I also wanted to keep the colors in the brown family and maybe get a card that was somewhat masculine. The ladies enjoyed the technique last night. Let me know what you think. Until next time, happy stamping!

Fifth Avenue Floral

This is probably one of my favorite cards that I have made recently. I believe the name of the technique is re-inker push. First, I stamped the large flower (Stampin' Up! Fifth Avenue Floral) on shimmer paper and embossed with white embossing powder. Next, I picked up some re-inker drops with my Aqua Painter and pushed the color around until I got the desired look. It's a super easy technique and you should definitely give it a try. Please let me know if you have any questions and enjoy!!!
