Stampin' Up Afternoon

On a recent Sunday afternoon I spent my time with new friends learning some new techniques and refreshing some old tried and true ones.  These are the cards we made.


One of the methods I learnt was called the Faux Floor Polish Technique.  The above images of the pear and writing were stamped onto the reverse side of acetate.  The pear and outside edges were then coloured in using equal parts of ink and Glossy Accents.  The acetate was then placed aside for about 20 minutes to dry.


The Rosette on this card was made using a new product/tool to me from Stampin' Up called Simply Scored.  An amazing device which has scoring lines every 1/8 of an inch.  Much more user friendly than other products on the market.  Aaaaand for those of us who live in the today, there is a metric insert available.

The workshop was hosted by Michelle, you need to have a look at the wonderful things she makes here on her blog.
