Sentimental Journey

Here’s a man card for ya.  The Feeling Sentimental stamp set is my absolute favorite from this year’s Sale-a-bration collection.  The images bring back some fond memories. 

On this card I used the Night of Navy Classic Ink Pad and applied ink directly onto the top side of the embossing folder.  Then I inserted the Crumb Cake layer and ran it through the Big Shot.  Love how this turned out.

Faux Patina

I recently attended a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator event hosted by Sally Nusbaum.  We affectionately call these events, “Sally’s Regionals”.  We spend half of the day observing demonstrations and the other half doing make & takes that feature new Stampin’ UP! products.  I have been attending Sally’s Regionals for the past several years and the one held in September was by far my best experience. 

The Faux Patina technique was a fabulous demo presented by Mary Derhake.   As soon as I saw it, I couldn’t wait to try it.

My customers had a great time on Saturday making this card.  They changed the stamp on the Jewelry Tag using the "4 you" stamp making a brithday card.  This shows how versatile this card can be.

Want step by step instructions to try this technique?  Click here for a tutorial developed by Angie Leach which I have added just a few notes based on my experience.
