Prep work for class

In preparing for a class I have this weekend, I've been playing with all the tidbits of paper I have. I've tried to not cut any new piece of DSP. I keep all my scraps in a binder and I started at the front of the binder and am working through from plastic sleeve to plastic sleeve. It's not until I thought that maybe I could post some of the pictures of the cards I made that I realized how many I actually got made this week. So here goes:

This set is made with one of my favourite stamps "Riot of Petals" unfortunately retired but still a favourite. I used the Bleach technique on Chocolate Chip cardstock. I first used versa mark on the stamp then embossed using with different colours of embossing powders. Although the result from the bleaching process produces almost the same colour everytime, using the different embossing powder colors seems to change the overall look.

For this one I used the Tangerine Tango embossing powder
and this one I used the black embossing powder
The set includes a Gift Box, 2 Sympathy, 1 Get Well, 1 Thank You and 2 blank cards. 


These two sets were made with the "Beyond The Garden"
DSP, the idea was to show that by using different sizes of DSP with some different card stock one can achieve a variety of cards.

 These 4 cards were created just for Him.

These two cards were made using different patterns of the same colour for a monochromatic look.

Although I do like monochromatic, this should prove that I also really like colours...
Thank you for stopping by.


  1. The bleaching with the different embossing powders is stunning Louise!!! Awesome :)
