Technique Tuesday

Well I just had a ton of fun tonight at my Technique Tuesday class. I enjoy spending time with my stampin' sisters. I know it sounds corny, but they bring me so much happiness.
Tonight's technique was using bleach. We made two cards featuring stamping with bleach, and two cards featuring coloring with bleach. When working with bleach, you might want to open the windows, and be aware that the effect bleach will give your card stock also works on your favorite shirt ;)
To stamp with bleach, create a "stamp pad" with folded paper towels saturated with bleach. "Ink" your stamp with bleach and stamp the image onto card stock. It takes a minute for the bleach to pull the color out; you can use a heat tool to speed up the process.
Before coloring with bleach, it is a good idea to emboss your image. This helps you stay-in-the-lines better. You can use an AquaPainter filled with bleach or an old Blender Pen dipped in bleach to "color" in the image. Just be sure to designate these for bleach only.
Another cool technique is to use a spray bottle to mist bleach onto card stock. Each color of card stock will bleach differently, so have fun experimenting with different colors.

It's been an exciting week for me with my team. First, Nichole decided she couldn't wait any longer to join the Stampin' Up! family; she just had to have that beautiful tote to keep her stampin' goodies in! Then Cassie promoted to Senior Associate! Way to go Cassie!! So these two super gals gave me a promotion - woohoo!! Now I get a nice little Stampin' Up! shopping spree! I'll have to let you know what I picked later... I'm off to Melissa's workshop. I can't wait for these girls to get their hands on my fun Halloween projects :)

I just want to extend a big welcome to the newest member of my team, Nichole. :) She is very excited about starting her own Stampin' Up! business (and earning a discount on her own stamps)! If you have ever wondered what it's like to be a demonstrator, or have any other questions, please contact me. I would be happy to answer your questions for you.

I had a great time last night teaching my "Technique Tuesday" class. Our technique focus for August was using the Big Shot. If you have a Big Shot and need project ideas or assistance with your machine, I would be happy to help you. If you don't have a Big Shot... well, I'd be happy to help you with that, too ;)
In class we made a Thanksgiving card using leaves die cut from wood sheets, a treat pouch using the movers-and-shapers die, a card using a die-cut from the Top-Note die (cut twice to create a new shape), and a fabric flower.
I just love stamping with my "stampin' sisters." If you would like to join us, you can view my class schedule on my website: stamp_pad.stampinup.net
Happy Stamping!!
