Country Home & Buffalo Check Stamping Technique

Country Home Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today, I'm sharing the first of 2 video tutorials on making this County Home Buffalo Check Card.  Learn how to make different checks using the Buffalo Check stamp.  I'll share a second video later in the week with coloring techniques.  To me, today's card is pure country from the checked background, to the corrugated card stock and finishing up with the Country Home stamp set.

 

This 3 minute video shares a technique to alter your Buffalo Check and stretch your stamping dollars!

Bonus Tip:  I showed the the video how to ink the plaid on today's card.  Now take a look at the center plaid.  This tighter weave plaid was created by making all the lines cross over the white spaces.  It's what I call a guy's plaid.

Stop back tomorrow, for a second video.  I'll walk you through the steps for coloring today's card.

Petal Palette & the Blue Bird

Petal Palette Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

The other day my grandson and I shared a walk and much to our delight we spotted a bluebird.  His blue and orange looked so bright and cheerful against the early autumn landscape.  The fields of soybeans and corn are ripe for harvest.  The bright autumn display of color hasn't quite arrived yet, so that bright color of the bluebird was so delightful.   Anyway, all that the inspired today's Petal Palette Autumn card.

The Soft Suede and Copper make a beautiful autumn backdrop.  And the shimmery copper of the Copper foil paper and the copper embossing look fabulous against the ripple of the corrugated embossing.  I frayed the ends of my Braided Linen Thread to look like nest material.

Bluebird Coloring Techniques

The bluebird is a mix of techniques.  I stamped my bird using Pacific Point ink, then I brushed my Aqua Painter across the blue for a watercolored look.  I wanted is breast to really pop, so I colored it with my Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends.  I went basic with a black marker and dotted his eye and beak.   Isn't he gorgeous?
