Technique Book

I meet monthly with some awesome demonstrators here in the Bay Area and we decided to make a technique book for all of our friends/customers. Here is the first batch we did. Each person had to create a card with a technique then we all copied that card for our own book. Don't I have some awesomely creative friends??!!??

This card was designed by Katja Pastor. The technique is IMPRESSION EMBOSSING –FAUX METAL TAG. Here are the instructions: Cover a small piece of white cardstock with Versamark Ink. Add silver (or other metallic) embossing powder. Remove excess and heat. Repeat for a total of 3 applications. Quickly, apply Versamark ink to your stamp and press into the hot embossing. Hold for 3 seconds and remove. Use a punch to create a tag from the embossed image. Make a Wire Works jump ring using the Crafters Tool Kit.

This card was designed by Gina Cardera. The technique is Crayon Resist. Here are the instructions: Stamp images on glossy cardstock using Basic Black Classic Ink. With a white crayon, color in areas that you wish to remain white. Sponge or bray classic ink over the images. Use multiple colors or a spectrum pad. After the ink has dried, wipe off the crayon with a tissue.

This card was designed by Pat Zahn. The technique is Faux Suede. Here are the instructions: Choose 3 colors of Craft pads. The colors here are Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel and More Mustard. Completely cover your accent piece with the Close to Cocoa using the direct to paper technique. Let dry. Apply Creamy Caramel randomly using same direct to paper technique. Coverage should be uneven. Let dry. Repeat same step with More Mustard.
This card was designed by Jennifer Wu. The Technique is Baby Wipes. Here are the instructions: Fold a baby wipe into a manageable size. Alternate several colors of reinker drops in a row. Swipe across glossy cardstock. Dry and stamp. This makes a great sunset. Or, dab around for a more splotchy background.
This card was designed by Elizabeth Yow. The technique is Pencil Over Ink. Here are the instructions: Stamp a bold image using craft white (pigment) ink on dark cardstock. Let dry. Color over the image using colored pencils or metallic pencils.
This card was designed by Lanette Irabarra. The Technique is Kissing. Here are the instructions: Ink a background stamp with classic ink. Press a solid type stamp onto the background stamp to pick up the ink and then onto cardstock. You can also press inked stamps onto a background stamp and then stamp either stamp for an interesting effect.
This card was designed by Ana Garcia: The technique is Dirty Stamping. Here are the instructions: Ink an image in a light color of classic ink. Color in a portion of the image with a darker, coordinating Stampin’ Write Marker. Huff stamp to moisten and stamp onto cardstock. Your image will be multicolored.
This card was designed by Debbie Colbacchini. The technique is Spotlighting. Here are the instructions: Stamp the image onto the card and again onto an extra piece of cardstock. Trim the extra piece to a small circle or square to become the spotlight. Color it and mount on a colored cardstock mat. Mount this, lining up with the first stamped image on the card.
This is the card I designed. The technique is Packing Tape/Glitter Window. Here are the instructions: Stamp your image. Bright colors work best. Make sure the image will show through the window you are making. You can use any punch to make this easier. Try to make the window smaller than the width of the packing tape so you don’t have to use 2 strips of tape to cover the window. Place the tape, sticky side out, behind your window. Pour Dazzling Diamonds on the tape. Rub with your finger to make sure the glitter is adhered well. Brush off the excess glitter. Pour back into your bottle. Adhere your stamped image so it shows through your window. Voila! You have a beautiful, sparkly image.

I swear, I almost made a point to not use purple in that card, and yet it looks more purple than blue in the picture here! :)
