ANZAC Day ... 100 years 1915 to 2015

I am remembering all those who went to war to give me the freedom I have today here in Australia.  I am sharing a poppy I created last night to post on my Facebook page as my profile picture and thought I would turn it into a card.

The poppy is made with the two flowers cut out with Blossom punch (which is retiring and is already sold) and using a sponge dauber in Real Red to give it depth of colour with the centre created out of Basic Black cardstock with the 7/8" Scallop Circle.

I used the retiring stamp set, Four You which is still available in clear ($20.95 reduced to $17.81 or wood $25.95 reduced to $19.46).

Stamp Set:  Four You, Crazy about You
Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Real Red, Basic Black
Accessories: Blossom Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Stampin' Spritzer

I have visited the Australian War Memorial in 2000.

and then I travelled to Thailand in 2012 and visited the Bridge over the River Kwai and Hellfire Pass, constructed for the Burma to Thailand Railway by the Prisoners of World War II (thousands Australian, British and Dutch died) and we visited the grave site.

Stampin' Up! Video: Marker to Stamp Technique

Instead of using ink pads, try the marker to stamp technique.  Katie shows you how to colour the rubber stamp with a Stampin' Writer Marker, give it a breath to re-moisten the ink and stamp the image.  This works great on any stamp from a blocked image to an intricate design.

There are a few individual Stampin' Write Markers in the Retirement List (they will be available in colour families but looks like these colours will not be available individually when the new Annual Catalogue goes live on 2 June) and the pack of 2013-2015 In Colours.

Stampin' Write Marker In Colour 2013-2015 $25.95 reduced to $12.98

Stampin' Up! Video: Using Sponge Daubers

I am sharing one of the Stampin' Up! you tube videos, which was released earlier this week.

Sponge Daubers are so easy to use and in this video Alisa is using a mask to create beautiful backgrounds.

I will share a card in the coming days that we made last week at my card class using the very popular
Bokeh Technique which uses sponge daubers to create the white circles (sneak peak below).
