July Stamp-A-Stack

These are the cards we made at our July Stamp-A-Stack.  All of them were cased from very talented Stampin' Up demonstrators on the internet.
From upper left clockwise: 

  • Jen Arkfeld: Stamped several of the flowers from Flower Patch in Daffodil Delight and the leaves in Coastal Cabana, cut with coordinating dies and Big Shot, layered sentiment onto a piece of burlap trim die cut with the large scallop edgelit, background is Typeset DSP spritzed with  Bermuda Bay/alcohol solution using the Dots mask from Dots & Stripes.
  • Susan Gillespie: Stamped flowers from Hostess Set - Bloom with Hope in StazOn ink on watercolor paper
  • Jennifer Timko: No-line piercing technique, stamped flower on "back side" of watercolor paper with light ink, use Stampin’ Pierce Mat to protect your surface, use a straight pin to follow the lines of the stamped image, flip the image over and color using Aquapainter with Lost Lagoon/Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey inks, embossed panel by cutting out an oval with the Ovals Framelits, then embossing with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, distressed around the edges with Distressing Tool, tied bow with Hello Honey Stitched Satin Ribbon
  • Jen Arkfeld:  Stamped Dotty Angles confetti stamp using Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and offsetting it each time,  added Dazzling Diamonds and Thick Baker's Twine
