FUNdamentals BOARD and samples

Hi there:

Today I'd like to share one more FUNdamentals Technique Board with Stamping samples T2- with emphasis on stamping and coloring techniques.
I used a very cute stamp set from CTMH (C1363 Beary Best - a funny bear with boots), which is an outlined stamp image so I have many choices to color it, as I put into the sample blocks found in the board.

If you like this stamp set, you can order it here at lya.myctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=4577 , there is also a companion set featuring the same cute bear - gardener style lya.myctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=5355

Stamping can be so much fun with countless projects possibilities, and depending on the ink type you have many choices of surfaces to work with and different and artistic options to color your images...go creative!!

papers, stamp, embossing powder, stamp pad, brad (CTMH), watercolor pencil set(artistic loft-Michaels), COPIC markers, Stazon (Tsukineko), transparency sheet (Office Max)

Have a great day!

CTMH recipe box in "Magnifique" style

Good morning!

The box project you see here is made with the new CTMH My Creations (recipe box).
I used the Winter new paper collection - Magnifique (featuring the Pacifica/blue and Chocolate shades), this set of patterned papers are so gorgeous!

I love when the paper colors and motifs are universal - I mean, you can use for a wide variety of purposes and for both masculine or feminine themed projects. This is one of those sets.

All supplies used for the box are from CTMH, as sample of my upcoming FUNdamentals classes.

Thanks for visiting me today!

book page made bloom

Here you see some of the paper flowers I made from book pages.
It is a beautiful way to create my own embellishments out of the colors I really like.

These delicate little ones (approx. .75 inch) are just the right size for my handmade cards or scrapbook layouts, decorating corners or accentuating borders.

Wish you a happy day!
