My Creative Hostess

So how clever is my "over-achieving" hostess!!!  Phyl Lyons of Seneca Falls, NY, recently had a workshop and she went all out.  This is her invitation to her workshop – on the flip side is all of the information!  Isn't it darling?  The results?  Phyl's workshop closed at over $900 earning her 3 free stamp sets and over $120 in hostess free merchandise!  It really pays to go the extra mile!  You might like to use this idea for an upcoming Christmas party invitation.

Phyl coupled my favorite stamp set of the year, Greeting Card Kids, with Newsprint Designer Series Paper for this gorgeous creation.  The Big Shot along with the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die made it a snap to cut out the scallops for the background.  When creating a vintage feel, don't forget to sponge the edges of your card stock and papers.  It really adds to the feel!  In this case, Phyl used Soft Suede Classic Ink along with a Sponge.  Phyl's favorite technique for coloring in her images is to use the AquaPainters with her Classic Stamp Pads.  Just beautiful!  And congratulations to Phyl for hosting a fantastic workshop!

Cute Little Witch

Here's another card using Greeting Card Kids for Halloween; my first one is HERE.  You can see that this cute little witch looks great either colored in or not!  On this particular card, I used Watercolor Paper along with Stampin' Write Markers and an Aqua Painter — simply add just a bit of color from the markers and blend.  This is my favorite technique for getting a nice shaded image.  Just don't forget to use a Jet Black StazOn Ink Pad to stamp your image – any other ink will run when moistened with the Aqua Painter.  The sentiment is from Grateful Greetings and I used those same markers direct to the stamp to get a multi-colored greeting.  The bats in the corner are from Wicked Cool.  There are so many fun new accessories in the Holiday Mini Catalog!  I love the new Raven 1/2" Lace Trim that I tied around a piece of designer paper from the Wicked Fun Specialty Designer Series Paper pack.  The circle motif has Waffle Paper around the edges of the punched out circles and a Black Glimmer Brad in the center.  My color scheme is Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze and Basic Black.

Outlined Witch

This featured stamp set, Greeting Card Kids, is one of my favorites in this Idea Book & Catalog.  There is a darling image for back to school, Halloween, Christmas and a little girl for any occasion.  And I must say, it does bring back some nostalgic memories.  This artwork is labeled "vintage" now, but I remember the originals!  I began with Tangerine Tango card stock and an addition piece run through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Next came two different prints from Nite Owl Designer Series Paper pack.  This darling Halloween image looks great either colored in or not.  (Stay tuned for a card showing her using a special coloring technique!)  Here it's stamped on a circle I created with the Circle Scissors Plus.  Don't forget your Dimensionals and a black Mini Library Clip for some added interest!  The sentiment is from Wicked Cool stamp set, another great choice for Halloween.  I'll be posting more cards using this terrific stamp set.  Create multi-colored sentiments by just inking up various parts of the stamp with different color Stampin' Write markers and punch out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch.  To show off the Basic Gray button from the Neutrals Designer Buttons pack, I ran some Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon through the center and mounted it on an image I cut from one of the pieces of the designer paper, also from the Nite Owl pack.
