May Mighty Stampers

The month of May Mighty Stamper cards were lots of fun! We did Faux Frosting, Acetate Accents, Floating Re-Inkers, Ruffled Edges and Glitter dots.

This first card has lots of texture that you just can't see! The top of the cupcake looks like it was just frosted and ready to eat! YUM!!

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes
Ink: Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Certainly Celery Craft, Summer Sun craft
Card Stock: Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery
Accessories: White Gel Pen, Aquapainter, Crystal Effects, White Embossing Powder, heat tool, Acetate, glitter

I really love this card! It uses a set that I have struggled to use but this one is one of my favorites! It does have a fall feel to it but I still LOVE it!

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip
Card Stock: Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Accessories: Glue dots, Fine Supernova glitter, Wide oval punch, dimensionals, scallop edge punch, Chocolate Chip Patterns designer series paper

This has to be one THE best techniques ever created! You really need to see this one in person! The Rose is stamped on Shimmery White cardstock so it has a glitter and sheen all it's own. It really makes you say WOW! when you see it!

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Short & Sweet
Ink: Ruby Red, VersaMark
Card Stock: Ruby Red, Garden Green, Whisper White, Shimmery White
Accessories: Top Note die, Big Shot, Little Leaves Sizzlet, White Embossing powder, Ruby Red, More Mustard, Cameo Coral re-inkers, aquapainters, water spritzer

Mighty Stampers--June

Mighty Stampers is a technique class that i teach at Epiphany Lutheran Church on the second Tuesday of the month. The Mighty Stampers in June created the following cards. The ladies at this class actually used stamp sets that retired and are no longer avaliable so I changed them up to use some current stamp sets.

The first one is a diaroma card. I really like the way this one turned out! The bear and racoon are just so cute!!
Stamps: Inspired by Nature, Under the Stars
Card Stock: Kraft, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black, Summer Sun, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, aquapainters

The next card is using a stamp set that I got for FREE for attending the Stampin' Up! convention last year in Salt Lake City! It's called Flight of the Butterfly. They have now come out with a punch that matches this stamp set! The two techniques that are used on this card is Bleeding Markers and Spiral Pop-Up. This is the outside of the card.

This is the inside of the card!

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Ink: Stazon Black, Pretty in Pink, Pink Passion, Certainly Celery, Old Olive
Card Stock: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Whisper White, Watercolor, Basic Black
Accessories: Pretty in Pink, Old Olive, Pink Passion, Certainly Celery markers, 1 3/4" circle punch, glue dots, Old Olive ribbon

The last card that we made is using Clossione and Wrinkle Free Distressing. I LOVE the colors of this one. I think they are really pretty together!
