Below are beautiful cards swapped at the October Stamper's Club Class.
This beautiful card below was created by: Lisa Karpinsky
Pastel Technique used:
– Color top portion of the rubber stamp (flowers only) using a Versa Mark Pen and the bottom portion of the rubber stamp, 'flower pot' with a Chocolate Chip marker.
– Huff on image (to re-moisten ink) and then Stamp the image on cardstock
– Next, apply the desired colored Pastels on a cotton ball and gently daub on Versa Marked flowers
- Once the flowers are dried, color in the center of the flowers by using a Blender Pen dipped in desired colored Pastels
– Color the flower pot using a Blender Pen & Stampin' Up! Pastels
The Fabulous Rose Card below was created by: Stacy Simin I LOVE this technique!
Pastel Technique Used with a Stampin' Up! Two Step Stamp Set:
– Choose your favorite Two-Step Stamp Set (This is the hardest part of the technique:)
– Ink the bold Rose image stamp (which is the 1st step of the two steps) in a Versa Mark pad, and then onto cardstock
– Dip a Cotton Ball into a light colored pastel and daub stamped image on cardstock for desired effect
– Wait for this to dry throughly
– Ink the lined Rose image (2nd step of two steps) into a Versa Mark pad – then stamp on top of the bold image already on the cardstock (you may want to use a Stamp-A-Ma-JIg for this technique)
– Dip a Cotton Ball into a darker colored pastel and daub stamped image on cardstock for desired effect
– Repeat two steps again for two step stamp leaf – using a light colored Pastel green for the Bold Image, and after it dries throughly, a darker green color for the lined image (the second step of the two step stamp)
Danielle Hassmiller designed the below Halloween Tri Fold Card for our swap
– Color in lined image by dipping a Blender Pen into the desired colored Pastel
– In between colors, be sure to scribble blender pen on scrap paper to clean tip off, then go to next Pastel Color
Absolutely stunning, don't you think?
