Stampendous! Painting with Powder Technique

Good Morning! Its a beautiful Friday here in NC. I have to work all day and then have classes tomorrow, but I hope its still pretty on Sunday! As you can see, I never finished this post on Wednesday! So today you get to see stuff for my classes tomorrow at Enchanted Cottage.

All of these cards are made with Stampendous! stamps, embossing powders, and glitters and use the newest techniques that Fran demonstrated at CHA in January. Check out the Stampendous! blog for videos, tutorials, and links to the Papercraft Planet feature!

The top card is made with Ranuculus Fields, an absolutely gorgeous image! I used the new Merlot Embossing Powders kit to do the "Painting with Powder" technique.

Next up is a card using the Glitter and Flock technique and the "Moroccan Sun" Fringe Benefits Kit. The cute flowers are from another new set called "Loopy Blooms". It also uses funky holographic Class-A-Peel stickers from Stampendous! This card is a take-off on a cute pail we made as a Make-n-Take at the Stampendous! booth at CHA.

Here is a card using the first technique again with the "Coastal Express" Embossing Powder Kit. The gorgeous peacock is from the "Proud Peacock" set.

Last up of my "original" cards is this Impressionistic number made with "Lavender Fields" scenery stamp and again the "Merlot" kit. (This is inspired from a Fran Seiford card)

This card was another Make-n-Take from CHA using the new "Rich & Rugged" Embossing Powders kit and "Dreamy Leaves" cling and "Wildflower Sprigs" clear stamp set.

Finally, another Make-n-Take sample from CHA using "Coastal Express" kit and "Birdcage Trio" cling stamp. I was fortunate enough to not only get to be invited to CHA to work at the Stampendous! booth but also to be able to see their headquarters in ANaheim and we got to make all the Make-n-Take projects ahead of time. Thanks again girls! It was a blast!

So, if you are local, this class will not only be tomorrow but will repeat again in late April. Participants will make 3 of the above cards and also go home with a new Embossing Powder kit! Check out the Enchanted Cottage home page for our calendar, directions, and more samples!

I will also be repeating the Glitter and Acetate class from last year next saturday using stamps from Stampendous! and The Artful Stamper. Don't miss out on this glittery fun!

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a great weekend :)
