Technique Thursday

Stampin' Up!, Techniques, EmbossingThis card uses both techniques we’ll be doing at class this month.  One is partial embossing on vellum and the other is a paint chip design.

Neither of these is an original idea, but I don’t know who to credit.  I saw the ideas on Pinterest (thanks Christy!!) and other forums, but don’t know who pinned them.  So if it’s your brilliant idea, leave a comment and I’ll credit you.

There are lots of ideas out there using paint chips, but I didn’t want to take a ton of them from the hardware store for my class.  I just felt that was a little over the top, so I made my own from various pink shades.  (Besides, since we’re repainting, if I had brought home 10 pink paint chip samples, my dear husband may have fainted.)

Behind the vellum it says, “Happy happy happy birthday.”  It sounded like a great idea in my head, but it didn’t translate as well.  I didn’t want to stamp on the vellum, because I didn’t have time to wait for it to dry and I was afraid it would smear.  It’s more obvious in person, but we may leave that off on Thursday.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
