Bring a Friend Stamping Night

I really love these cards! These are the cards from my October Bring a Friend Stamping night. What, you weren't here? Then you need to bring one of your friends next time! We'd love to have new stamping friends join us.

The first card showcases a new (at least to my stamping group) technique. I used household bleach to stamp the flourish from Baroque Motifs onto chocolate chip cardstock. It bleached the cardstock out and looks almost like kraft in those areas. I had a lot of fun with this one.

Stamps: autumn harvest, baroque motifs
Paper: chocolate chip, dusty durango, very vanilla
Ink: chocolate chip craft, pumpkin pie, dusty durango, more mustard, summer sun, old olive, garden green
Accessories: clear embossing powder, heat gun, blender pens, 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain, distressing tool
Techniques: bleaching, distressing, heat embossing

The second card is my take on the popular quilted top note card. It's a bit trickier than it looks. I had to use my 2 way glue pen to re-attach tiny slivers of paper from the edges.
Stamps: holiday best
Paper: autumn meadows, rich razzleberry, very vanilla, soft suede
Ink: rich razzleberry
Accessories: big shot, top note die, wide oval punch, sponges, rich razzleberry polka dot ribbon, brads

The last card is one I absolutely LOVE! I very rarely make a clean and simple card, but I would put this one into that category. I adore that flocked paper! It is gorgeous!!!
Stamps: delightful decorations
Paper: whisper white, real red, christmas cocoa dsp
Ink: white craft
Accessories: white embossing powder, white taffeta ribbon, ornament punch
Techniques: heat embossing
