January Hostess Gifts
These projects are gifts for my January Stamp Club hostess. While the workshop is Valentine themed, I wanted to show off something other than just Valentine’s samples, so I chose to make these colorful cards and pouch.
Sweet Centers Flower Card
Details: The petals and the leaves of the flowers were first stamped in a lighter color. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig handle to mark my stamp placement. I then cleaned off my stamp, inked in darker color and kissed the stamp to the Medallion background stamp and re-stamped over top of the first stamping. This gives the petals and leaves a textured look.

Sweet Centers Hot Air Balloon Card
Details: I have seen several stampers use ovals to create a hot air balloon. For mine, I textured the pieces with the Square Lattice Die. For the sky, I tore a piece of scrap paper and sponged along the edge in Tempting Turquoise ink, gradually moving the scrap piece down to create the illusion of clouds. For the flower field, I tore a piece of Build-a-Bear Workshop Pawsitively Prints II Paper and then sponged with Pear Pizzazz ink.
