The stamp set is from Clear Dollar stamps. I made a mistake on the lower sunflowers - I started coloring in the seeds with a black pen, then the fog lifted and I remembered that sunflower seeds are brown. I did not have time to re-do the card, but I will keep it as a sample.
Thanks for looking! I will be adding to this post as the day goes on, so check back here again!
The first badge of the day is Knots: ribbon technique. We copied the three tiered cake with ribbon. I outlined each square with seed beads.
My daughter is also working with my sister and I today, and she did a card using the same technique. She turned hers into an open present box with a cute dog coming out.
I had a hard time making the mini book, so I'm skipping it for now. I may come back and edit/add a project later. Instead I'm posting my "limited supplies" project using cardstock from PTI.
Here's my hand-rolled paper bead bracelet. The other round green beads were also hand-made using polymer clay (thanks for sharing, Barb!).
Here are all three bracelets on my daughter's arm: the one I made, the one my sister made, and the one my daughter made.
The next challenge was making a background using a tye-dye technique. I've done the shaving cream technique in the past, so I decided to try the copic makers and alcohol. My initial plan was to go bold, so I chose some bright bold colors. But then my sentiment didn't show up well enough, so I re-did the sentiment on a banner. It wasn't until the card was completed that I realized the sentiment I chose really didn't match up with the colors or retro design of the background. That's ok, I still learned a new technique!
Here's the one my daughter made...
This badge required us to make a set of 4 cards and package them in some way. I make card sets all the time and I like to use the clear plastic boxes for packaging. Here's the set I made...
The card base is embossed with a circle embossing plate, but the detail did not show up in the picture.
That's it for me this year for the PTI Stamp-A-Faire - I am tired! It was a great time and I hope to do it again next year.
Thanks for looking!
