Yes, I’m in catch-up mode and working to share projects with you!  Summertime activities are keeping me busy but my goal is to get back on track in the next week.  I do hope that this post finds that you’re enjoying your summer too!
The card being shown today was made in a recent class and utilizes a technique that was demonstrated while at the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Live event in April.  Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Kim Williams ( used the Fruit Stand Suite in her presentation of various cards.  The technique she shared involved stamping the image using a classic Stampin’ ink pad onto a piece of watercolor paper, misting the stamped paper with water, then applying clear embossing powder over the misted paper. Complete the technique using the heat tool to melt the embossing power covering the image to create an “orange peel” texture.  It’s a fun technique so hope you give it a try!
Thank You Card using Stampin’ Up! Fresh Fruit Stamp Set & Farm Stand Designer Series Paper
The strawberry patterned DSP from the Farm Stand Designer Series Paper package is one of my favorite prints from the stack.  To me, it screams summer!
