Whadya do with that???

Do you have Stampin' Up! products in drawers on shelves and have no clue what to do with them? Technique Tuesdays are your answer. On the third Tuesday of every month you will learn three fun techniques using Stampin' Up! products. In April we learned the chalkboard technique, chipboard uses, and how to stamp on cupcakes!

One of the techniques was stamping on cupcakes. It is a really fun technique that sparks a lot of questions on how you did that? We used edible rice paper, food coloring markers, and Stampin' Up! stamps!

Next we worked with Chipboard. The card was done using Berry Bliss Paper and a Star from the On Board Simon Upper. On the technique card we covered the small heart with versamark and silver embossing powder. The other two pieces were from previous classes, one done with craft ink and a gel pen and the other with heat and stick powder and Stampin' Up! glitter.

Stamps: Jumbo Classic Stars wheel and Hugs and Wishes

Paper: Close to Cocoa, Berry Bliss DP and Pretty in Pink

Ink: Close the cocoa and Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Chipboard, gluestick, pink grosgrain ribbon, scissors, and sanding block

The next technique was chalkboarding. We used the Stampin' Up pastels and white craft ink on black paper to get a chalkboard effect.

Stamps: Tart and Tangy, One Smart Cookie, and My ABCs wheel

Paper:real red, whisper white, basic black, glorious green

Ink: black and craft white

Accessories: Scallop punch, 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 circle punches, red marker, Stampin' Pastels

Come join us next month! Watch my blog or your email to see what we are doing on May 20th!!

Divine Design Scripture Challenge!

I haven't done many challenges but decided to join this one found here. The Divine Design challenge is to create a card, bookmark, scrapbook page, journal using scripture from the Bible. It is a great way to memorize God's word and learn more.

I chose a verse from Job 8:21: He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.

We are dealt all kinds of things in life but just need to look at life and laugh! God gave me a beautiful three year old son who makes me laugh and smile each day. What kind of things make you laugh out loud?

Stamps: All in the Family, Bugs and Kisses
Ink: Basic Black and Chocolate Chip
Paper:Chocolate chip, brocade blue, gable green
Accessories: markers, stamp-a-majig, computer generated verse
