Studio Calico INKED Class Day 2 - Glossy Accents & Stickles

Hello Again,
Todays INKED classroom had us using Glossy Accents & Stickles. I have used both of these techniques before, but again, what a nice reminder to get supplies out that I already have on hand and USE them.

The stamps used were included with the Class Kit when you enrolled at Studio Calico. I used Memento Ink in Grape Jelly and Papertrey Ink paper in plum pudding. Flowers and leaves are from Prima (stash),  button brads (stash),  glossy accents were used around the frame and stickles were used at the bottom point of each chevron. The banner die is from My Favorite Things. (I just noticed I used the wrong frame provided in the kit for this project but I still think it looks nice. I'll just have to make another one with the correct frame - bonus there is that it will be another Thank You card for my stash!!)

Blessings, Jenny

Studio Calico INKED class

I signed up to take a class at Studio Calico called INKED. The class is going to help me get more out of my stamps. Todays class was all about stamping on patterned card-stock. I have done this very little in the past, and most times I have actually heard this referred to as paper piecing.

After watching the video I got to work. I paper pieced 2 different stamps that I have, and used one of these to make a card.

This first one is a Prima Stamp by Julie Nutting. Now these are big stamps which makes paper piecing them easier then smaller images you may work with. I stamped her with tuxedo black Memento ink and used a 6x6 paper pad from Teresa Collins titled Spring Fling. 

This next one is a stamp from LaLa Land titled Ruffles Marci. I again used tuxedo black memento ink. The paper pad I used here is from DCWV and is called Hippie Chic. The sentiment stamp is from My Favorite Things and was a freebie I received when placing an order that qualified for their triple scoop. The spangles are from a mix bag I bought at Walmart.
Here are the 2 projects I worked on today in the Classroom.

Blessings, Jenny
