Today’s technique in my Online Techniques class is Painting with Silks. This is a super easy technique with beautiful results. I love this technique because I’m not very good at watercoloring so this is an easy way for me to color in line art images.

I chose to use the Hope Rises stamp set for today’s card which is an Easter stamp set but I am using it for a Birthday Card. I love to use stamp sets for something other than what they are meant to be used for. By using this “Easter” stamp set for other occasions other than Easter makes it more valuable. I love that all the images in this stamp set can be used for multiple occasions not just Easter.

I paired the Hope Rises set with the Sentimental Prints stamp set making it a Birthday Card.

The Whip Cream background piece was run through my Amaze machine inside the Petals Wall embossing folder.

The Silks that I used are Dark Roast, Electric Lime, and Cranberry Bliss Silks.

I also splattered the whole card with Cranberry Bliss Silk and Sparkle Silk.

Today in my Online Techniques class I will be showing you the Coloring with Silks technique. This is a super quick and easy way to color in your stamped images.

Depending on the Silks you use some will give you a metallic look; so sparkly and pretty.

The Silks I used on today’s card sample are the Bubble Gum Silk and the Silver Silk both have a metallic in them.

The Stamp Set I used for today’s sample is the Wedding Bliss ATS stamp which is FREE with a min. $150.00 order.

I added some additional sparkle with the Black Licorice and Silver Sparkle Tape.

It doesn’t show well in the picture but I also used the Heart You embossing folder on the Whip Cream background piece.

Fun Stampers Journey Blooming Details Die with Umbrae PanPastels

PanPastels, Fun Stampers Journey, Glendasblog, thestampcamp
This was my sample piece I created during my technique video on Thursday. After the video I finished heat setting the embossing powder and decided to use it with a different element.

I had the Blooming Details dies laying out on my table and thought they would make a great accent for my card front.

The BDay Wall stamp is a large stamp that fits the full front of your card so you aren’t left with much space to accessorize your card.
I like the look of the Silver Sparkle tape but it also needed a little something extra. I thought I’d bring out the Blue in the Flower and add in some Silver Mirror paper for the leaves and accent on the flower.

I really like how it turned out. Yesterday’s card was cute and all and a good card for a teen birthday card but today’s is pretty and more girly.

The 2 Blue PanPastels that I used were the Pool Play and Beach Ball from the Confectionary Days and Party Pop PanPastel packs.

Stay Wild stamp set, glendasblog, thestampcamp, Fun Stampers Journey
Today’s technique in my Online Techniques Class is the Scenic Backgrounds technique using the PanPastels.

I know I’ve shown you this fun technique before but it was a must for the technique book. This is a super easy and quick technique to do to create different scenic backgrounds for your scenic stamps. My preferred scenic stamp is the Stay Wild ATS stamp. This creates great cards for guys.

The PanPastel colors I used on today’s card were:
Lemon Drop – Party Pop
Whip Cream – Party Pop
Citrus Cooler – Party Pop
Denim Days – Mother Nature
Kiwi Slice – Rich Sorbet
Huckleberry Fusion – Rich Sorbet

I also used the Love Stripes Embossing Folder on the Banana Cream piece of card stock. This is one embossing folder that I think looks great no matter what you put on it. So Classic!

The “happy birthday” sentiment is from the Sentimental Prints stamp set.

I popped up the sentiment and the scenic background piece using the Journey Foam Squares.

Bokeh Technique with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Thursday, January 4, 2018

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques class is the Bokeh Technique. This technique is done with the PanPastels.

This is a fun technique that will give different results each and every time depending on how you use your stencil you create.

You will create a stencil using the Clear View sheets and the Journey Circles Dies. I do not recommend trying to punch holes in the Clear View sheet using the punches; trust me!

When I thought about doing the greens for my bokeh technique I was thinking the Turtley Awesome stamp set which would be a great stamp set to use with this background; but when I was done I immediately thought of my son who’s in the military and thought of Our Hero stamp set. A perfect match!

The PanPastel colors I used were the Whip Cream, Kiwi Slice and Limeade Splash. The Limeade Splash PanPastel is sold separately.

Liquid Colors Rainbow Stamping with Glenda Calkins

Thursday, December 21, 2017

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques class is Liquid Color Rainbow Stamping.

This is a fun technique that turns out different each time you do the technique. It is fun to see the different colors you can come up with.

This technique is best done using a 2 or 3 step stamp set. The set I chose to use is the Poppy Days stamp set.

I also used the Greetings Bouquet stamp set for my sentiment.

The Film Frame is a nice die to add accent and add a different element to your cards.

I love the Rainbow drops and they add just the right finishing touch to the cards.

Here is your shopping list:

Ordering is easy just click on the products you wish to purchase and add them to your shopping cart. Thanks so much for your orders!
