technique-book-cover-smallIt has been some time ago that I started a Technique Book.  As I teach various stamping techniques I incude a Technique Card with the class.  Lately I have been sharing new techniques as part of my Stamper’s Club meetings.  Sometimes I include them in my regular hands-on classes.  The book itself is a 4×6 photo album.  I created a cover for it – I used the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set in Bravo Burgandy.  An added bonus to the Technique Book is that we are also building a card stock sampler.  Each technique page is on a different color of cardstock and I include the name on the card so you will know what it is.   

Here is an example of one we have done in the past – 2-step-stampin Two-Step Stampin’ –


In our first two club meetings this time we learned the Stained-Glass technique – which I shared on my blog last month.  This month we learned a Faux silk technique. 






The stamp set is the Botanical Blooms from the SAB brochure.  We added texture to the card front using the Big SHot and the Eyelet plate from the Stampin’ Up! backgrounds 1 Texturz plates collection.  The card base is Basic Grey with So Saffron  and the Basic Grey Tafetta Ribbon. 

If you are interested in learning a particular Stamping technique contact me today about hosting a Stampin’ Up! party for you and your friends and I’ll crated a project especially for you featuring the technique you want to learn. 

If you would like to visit one of my Stamper’s Club meetings or find about more about being a member please contact me today.  We make some fun projects each month.  It is a great way to spend a girl’s night out.

Enjoy your weekend.  We have some gorgeous weather here.  Ryan and Greg just headed out to another soccer game.  Ryan still seems to be sore from his incident yesterday – he says his neck an back hurt a little.   And tonight we are having my birthday dinner since we have been busy every other night with one thing or another.
