I spent the day INSIDE putting labels on more Stampin' Up! catalogs that arrived yesterday, prepping for two stamp clubs that I'm holding on Sunday and sending out more notifications of my new catalog Open House next Friday. The reason I was INSIDE is because it has been hotter than hades in my neck of the woods over the past few days. I didn't leave the house until about 6:30 pm today and the temperature had finally dropped to the mid 90s. Yesterday my car thermometer read 106F. WOW!! It was so hot that after swim team practice my daughter actually wanted to come home to cool down.
Anyway, I'm here today to give some more details about my WOW presentation at the Hispanic Event at the Stampin' Up! Convention 2011. I decided to present the floating reinker technique on a twist card and since I was gearing my presentation towards a Hispanic market I wanted to make sure that I used the colors and stamps that they would appreciate and enjoy. So, here are two samples of my twist card. One shows the floating reinker technique and one is colored with markers.
For this technique I embossed the princess image from the Princesita stamp set on shimmery paper. I then spritzed water all over the image and since the image was so small, I rubbed my finger over the water to make sure it puddled in all the embossed crevices. I then took my aqua painter and picked up drops of reinker in pool party and dipped the aqua painter into the puddled water on the princesita's layerd petticoat. I cleaned the aqua painter and picked up wisteria wonder for the dress, cleaned the aqua painter again and picked up calypso coral and colored the princesita's hair and so on. I embellished the wand and crown by using the 2 way glue pen and fine galaxy gold glitter
I used my Big Shot and the Scallop Circle die, the Clear Circle die and the Scallop Circle #2 die along with my 2-1/2 inch cirlce punch to cut out the card pieces. I attached them together with brads, added circles of shimmer white on the back to cover the brads and to use as a place to write a note to the recipient (sorry, I didn't take a photo of that and the cards are with Stampin' Up! now). The card does fit into a medium size envelope with a slight bend in the flap. There is a supply list at the end of this post if you'd like to know exactly what I used.
Also in the photo are the chocolate nugget candies that I covered by stamping with the Envueltos en deseos stamp set on Avery labels. For one set I stamped with the birthday cake stamp. For the other set I stamped on the avery label with the stamp that looks like a bandaid. Then I stamped the princesita and the frog on a piece of whisper white card stock and colored them both in with markers. I used the small oval punch to punch out the portion of the images that I wanted to showcase and attach them to the label. I wrapped the label around the chocolate nugget and voila.
The next few cards are more samples I showed using the same technique on a larger image.
