Stretch Your Stamps 2 - post 1

So I signed up for another Online Card Class, this time it was Stretch Your Stamps 2.  I previously won a spot in their Stenciled class at the beginning of the year and it was great.  This one was great too but I didn't play along like I did last time.  I still fully recommend taking the classes!!
I am going to post multiple things in each post so I can load them to the proper gallery.
Day 1 - Lesson 1 - Multilayer Emboss Resist.  This technique was to use a background stamp with embossing and then water color.  Then to take your background piece and cut it up for different cards and different uses. 
Card 1 - supplies:

  • Canson Watercolor Paper
  • Versamark Ink
  • Hero Arts clear embossing powder
  • Artist Loft Watercolor
  • Papertrey Ink Journal Accessories (I don't have many background stamps at all so I used border stamps)
  • PTI Wonderful Words Birthday stamp set and die
  • Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock
  • Tombow Adhesive
  • Versafine Black Onyx
Day 8 - Lesson 3 - Create a Border.  This technique was to use a graphic stamp to create a background.
Only card - supplies:

  • Simon Says Stamps - Cupcake Party, largest star
  • PTI Signature Greetings - Girly You Rock
  • Cuttlebug Embossing folder - don't know the name
  • Stampin Up Pink Passion Ink
  • PTI Soft Stone Ink
  • Versafine Black Onyx 
Day 10 - Lesson 2 - DIY Stamped Letter Embellishment.  This technique was to use a floral stamp to create a nice subtle background then stamp a color ink on white and mount the letters (or my case word dies) on fun foam for dimension.

Card 1 - supplies:

  • PTI Wonderful Words Birthday die
  • PTI Summer Sunrise ink and paper
  • Versamark for the background stamping
  • White fun foam
  • Cuttlebug
  • PTI Stamper Select White cardstock
  • Ranger Multi Matte Medium for adhesive
  • Lawn Fawn Mixed Sequins

Day 11 - Lesson 1 - Layered Heat Embossing.  This technique was to create a fun embellishment centerpiece by using one color embossing powder for the background and then stamping a design/sentiment on top and using a different color being very careful to not overheat the top layer so it melts in just right.  I absolutely loved this one and will be doing it again!!

Only card - supplies:

  • Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large dies - largest two
  • Cuttlebug
  • PTI Wet Paint Sentiment - enjoy
  • Cuttlebug Scrollwork embossing folder
  • PTI White cardstock
  • Versamark
  • Ranger Super Fine Silver embossing powder

  • Embossing powder bag for antistatic
  • Foam adhesive

 Two more posts to come!
