Friday night, I had a DATE with my hubby! Our boys stayed all night at Grandma and Grandpa's house, so we didn't have to worry about how late we stayed out. We went out to eat, went to a movie and went to listen to a band. All the things we like to do in one night. AND I got to sleep in, which I love to do. This weekend I found out that I like to take that time for my family, so I have decided not to stamp over the weekends. You will not hear from me Saturdays and Sundays for sure and maybe Mondays. I will definitely be back for Technique Tuesdays every week.
This week I decided to use one from the summer CTMH idea book - Sanding Stamped Images. This one is so great, because you can do this with every stamp set you own. I used From Me to You for the main image and Sensational Seals on the tag. Here are directions straight from page 31 from the summer catalog:
Sanding Stamped Images
- Stamp an image on cardstock of your choice.
- Lay the stamped image on the foam pad included in the My Acrylix packaging. Cover with wax paper to prevent tearing, then trace over the entire image using an embossing stylus. (I did not use wax paper, but I have heard to rub wax paper over your image to emboss easier.)
- Turn the stamped image over and sand the raised image with sandpaper.
Stamp sets - From Me to You, Sensational Seals, From the Garden
Paper - white daisy, amethyst, bubblegum
Ink - bubblegum, sweet leaf, baby pink, hydrangea
Embellishments - light purple gingham ribbon, white daisy photo hanger, bright pink baby pin and large spiral, clear sparkles (bling), dimensional element
Now, it is your turn!
