Techniques Card Class

Every month, I hold a tecnhiques card class in my home on a Monday night! Tonight's class features embossing (wet and dry) and using liquid applique.

PP- Daydream, CTMH
CS- hollyhock, CTMH
Ink- chocolate, hollyhock
Stamp- Cupcake Sprinkles
Wishes- card sketch book
Using liquid applique- I applied over the top of the stamped cupcake frosting. Used a craft heater to heat, makes it puffy looking. Directions say to let it set for 24 hours then heat. You can do either- the result is slightly different when you wait.

This card is completely scraplifted from Lisa Stenz (thanks!)
PP- Bella, CTMH
CS- Desert Sand
Stamp- Buttoned Together
Ribbon- hollyhock and olive, CTMH
Flowers- Autumn Daisy & Buttons- Colonial white, CTMH

Twill Ribbon- CTMH
Sprial clip- misc
Stamp- Western Flourish
