My Stampin' Up! Classes

Morning Soft polished stone card...

I had a technique class last night covering a pop-up card, shaving cream, and polished stone techniques.

The card to the right uses the Polished Stone Technique. You saturate a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and squeeze out the excess. Add a couple drops of reinker in two different colors (Orchid Opulence and Brilliant Blue here), plus a drop of metallic reinker (silver here). You can swipe, swirl or dab the cotton ball on glossy card stock to make some amazing patterns. The metallic reinker needs to be set so it doesn't keep rubbing off. I use hairspray. Once it dries, stamp your image on top in a permanent ink and finish your card.

This stamp from Morning Soft was stamped in Basic Black ink, layered on Brilliant Blue card stock and finished with white organza ribbon. The sentiment is from the Garden Greetings stamp set.
