We just returned from a good show in Mesa, AZ. The weather was pristine. Just take the best of the summer weather in WA and that was what we had our whole stay there.
As usual, I had a chance to get creative at the show while doing my demos. If you haven't ever seen me demo, you many not know that I demo on the fly. I don't pre-plan the projects, but just create, create, create. Because I love to create new things, I am always exploring new projects, colors and techniques with our fun stamps.
Here are some of the ones that came from the creative fest.
I used Versafine Vintage Sepia and colored in with Tombow markers. The tan stripes were from using a pale tan Tombow marker and going over the dotted border. Because Versafine doesn't smear, it is perfect for making stripes.
This was a cool card. I loved how it turned out.
I used our new polka dotted ribbon. The little circle punches turned out like charms at the end of the mesh ribbon. We currently don't have the new ribbons and punches on our website, but keep checking back! The mesh ribbon along with all the products are on http://www.denamidesign.com/.
This card is a beautiful one. I was showing a customer the versatility of the little Rosevine Petit Four set. You stamp the daisies in a circle and use the leaf stamp to fill in to make a wreath. I used the beautiful Versafine Spanish Moss for the leaves and Versafine Vintage Sepia for the flowers. I colored in with Tombow Markers. The vine is from the Trifles set. It is versatile for borders, backgrounds, making frames or using with the glue pad and glitter. The daisies looked like cornflowers or dried flowers in this card.
This was a Vellum card. I stamped the solid block stamp behind the vellum in the VersaMagic Sea Breeze and Aloe Vera and Brilliance Orchid. I embossed the flowers which are a Trifles set and words with Versa Mark and silver Embossing Powder on front. I colored on the back (the same side as the solid block). I then cut the rectangles out and used the ATG Gun to attach it to a folded Vellum sheet. The ATG is the best. It is invisible under the vellum! No need for a special vellum adhesive.
Same basic stamps, but I stamped the blocks on our white cardstock in the same pads and Versafine Onyx Black. I colored the flowers with Tombow. I mounted it to the Pearl aqua card and mounted it to the stamped folded card. A bright and cheery card.
I stamped with the Versafine Vintage Sepia for the dot circles and chicks. I stamped the scroll in the Versafine Spanish moss. All the coloring was with Tombow markers. A really cute and cool card for an invite or well wishes.
