Stamping With Theresa in August

I look outside this morning and notice that the corn is tassling and the glads are blooming. Where has the summer gone? It seems like only yesterday the snow disappeared and here we are already half way through August!

I have a workshop booked for a week from Saturday! Woohoo! It has been SO long that I will have to work on my presentation skills! I’m so excited…I just can’t hide it! (Sorry! Didn’t mean to hurt your ears with that rendition! :) ) We are making a slider card, the butterfly card below and a 6x6 scrapbook page. Will be working on cutting this weekend.

Build-A-Bear, jewelry items, digital scrapbooking, new Big Shots dies, new punches, treat cups to add a three dimensional look to any of your items and more! I am excited about the new Holiday mini and you should be getting yours soon! If you have not received one by September 1 let me know. It has some wonderful stamps, designer paper, rub-ons and more!

That day we will make 12 inserts for your necklace - one for each month! I am so excited! What a way to accent your wardrobe!

In the mini is a very cute desk calendar for $7.95 so preorder a calendar by the end on November and we will take this day to also personalize it! Oh it is adorable and comes with it's own little stand!

Technique Corner – Faux Linen
You can get this unique look by scratching the surface of glossy cardstock.

1. Stamp a background image on glossy cardstock. Ensure it is dry before the next step.
2. Use a light grade sandpaper or sanding block and make vertical movements up and down over the entire piece of cardstock.
3. Now sand horizontally; continue sanding until all the glossy is removed.
4. Apply a light color of ink over the top with a sponge brayer or regular sponge. 5. Lighten the color more by sanding over once again vertically.
6. Now you can finish your card! NOTE: You can stamp an image on this piece, add layers, etc. Make it your own!
