Technique club meeting 2 card 3 Featuring Dragonfly Dreams and Embossing. 

This is the 3rd card I’m teaching at this months technique class and I won’t be showing the surprise project until after the session on April 21. There’s still one opening on April 14th so if you wish to learn both heat and pressure embossing then feel free to join us Email at stampinsmilesbyjackie@gmail.com for details. For our May technique class we will be doing masking technique. Note: this card has combined heat and pressure embossing. 

Technique class 2 card 2 pressure embossing 

The Second card I’m teaching at my technique class is using pressure embossing as you may have noticed I’m featuring the Dragonfly Dream bundle this time. My original date for this class is now full so I’m offering a second class on the 13th of April although I’m still leaving the 14th open for a class if that works better for everyone. The class is at my home and is $20 and we make 3 technique cards plus one surprise project. This time the surprise project is a 3D item! Email me for more information stampinsmilesbyjackie@gmail.com. 

Technique club meeting 2 announcement 

Ok so I know it’s Monday. But hopefully this will bring a smile instead of the Monday blahs! I’m introducing my next technique which is going to be embossing both heat and pressure embossing. This card shows heat embossing and will be one of the cards I teach. Now I’m waiting for supplies for my other two cards so I may or may not have the 2nd card ready for show by Friday so I might stick with posting them on Monday. The interesting thing this time is I’ve showed this card around a bit already and I was going to hold just one class on Friday April 21 but that class is now full. So I’m thinking I can offer either Thursday April 13 or Friday April 14 around 6:30 or 7-9pm I welcome any feedback on what works for you. The surprise project of course won’t be showing on my page until after April 21 when I hold my last April technique class. And just throwing it out there but this month it’s not a card but a 3D project!!! Any way if you want to find out more you can message me or email at stampinsmilesbyjackie@gmail.com thanks!!!

My Twisty Turny Mechanical card

I finally did it. I have been wanting to make this mechanical card for a while and admit I had to turn to Pinterest to learn how. It magically twists and turns as you open it. It uses several bundles, stamp sets and the Falling in Love suite. The bundles were So in Love and Dragonfly Dreams and the stamp set is Touches of Texture. The base colour is Flirty Flamingo. It’s such a fun idea. I can hardly wait for the middle of March when a close friend has her birthday! 💜

Dragonfly Dreams revisited 

Dragonfly Dreams again! I can’t get enough of this set! For the multiple dragonflies I used watercolour paper with Stampin Write markers which I washed over with water to blend. The big dragonfly was stamped with Rich Razzleberry slightly washed with my aqua pen and then added Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight watercolour pencils and just lightly washed over them. The background embossing is done with Awesomely Artistic stamp and the sentiment is from Dragonfly Dreams both are heat embossed in gold. The background is Basic Black with Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay mattes. This picture doesn’t do this card justice but I tried several different photos and I’m afraid this was my best. 

Dragonfly Dreams card

From the new 2017 Occasions catalog I present to you my favourite cards so far. I used the Dragonfly Dreams bundle and from the Annual catalog the Serine Scenes DSP. I cut the dragonflies and bees out of watercolour paper which I painted with the new watercolour pencils on watercolour paper and stamped. The bees I stamped first with Basic Black Archival ink then watercolour painted and the dragonflies I painted first then when surface dry I stamped one with Early Expresso ink let the colours set and then whilst still damp cut and moulded with my fingers into shape. The rest of the card is stamped with Early Expresso. Both used Early Expresso card stock and one uses Cajun Craze the other Delightful Dijon card stock. The bees were then embellished with Sending Love Embellishments. I’m just loving the fact the new catalog has introduced watercolour pencils. The catalog is available to customers January 4, 2017.
