Sunflowers and Stamping With Bleach

Hi, Creative Stamping Chicas!

Today the Art Gallery Stampers created two cards.  The first was a bleach/batik technique for a lovely card that could be his or hers.  I love how the gals took the ball and ran with it.  Our cards were similar but very different too.  I can't wait to use some of the student ideas for my next batch of batik cards.  We welcomed Barbara and Diane, Barbara's friend from D.C., for their first Creative Cards visit.  They were a quick study and wonderful company!  We welcomed back Christine, who as always, is fun and creative.  I have to admit that I am so pleased with gals that come to stamp.  They are so considerate, sweet and creative.  I guess I love teaching thanks to the great students.  (The story of my life and long teaching career!)

Stamping with bleach--quick, fun and such beautiful creations!
Our second card was a punchy sunflower that we embossed with the Big Shot and used our paper piercing tool and guide to actually get those little brads lined up!!  Inside, we faux-watercolored (ink and blender pens) a pretty yellow flower.  One of the fun techniques we used was that of using a pencil eraser to stamp the center of our little yellow flowers for the envelopes.

Helen and Lavinia have been coming to classes since last fall!  We can count on them for good company and creativity!!
Sunflowers!
Next Week:  4th of July card and the cutest triangle fold cards ever!!
