ICS Blog Hop Technique Time


Hey Stampers and crafters! Welcome to the monthly Inspire, Create, Share blog hop. I am so glad to have you, whether you hopped over from Anna’s blog or if this is your first stop.

This month we are sharing our favorite techniques. I love techniques so much that I teach a monthly technique class – and the card I am sharing with you is a sneak peek of one of the techniques we will learn this month. My classes include one technique using paper and one technique using ink. This ink technique is called Salted Watercolor Background.


I absolutly love the rich colors of this card and the copper cutout using the Detailed Floral Thinlit is so dramatic, wouldn’t you agree? There isn’t much in the way of bling or accessories on this card because I want the star of the show, the technique, to stand out.

If you would like to join me for this class, or would like to purchase a class kit with complete instructions please leave me a comment or send me an email. Classes/kits include 4 cards – 2 of each technique, with envelopes and are only $15 or available for free with a minimum purchase.

Now it’s time to hope on over to Tina’s blog and see what she has for us!

Join us in the color challenge! Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone. This is the greatest day in America and I hope that you will be celebrating with friends and family. We are super busy putting in a back yard – with 100 degree temps. I swear we are crazy people. But The Lord opened doors for us to do this project now so we are running with it.

This weeks challenge is a great one over at SSInkspiration.

SSINK Color Challenge July

I thought it would be fun to use these colors for something other than stars and stripes!


The background was watercolored using the Dapper Denim and an Aqua Painter. I always watercolor on the Shimmery White paper because it will not pill up like our Whisper White.  All of the other elements are from the Sunshine Sayings bundle. This is such a great set with many words and adorable images that can be die cut with the big shot.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please leave me some blog love in the form of a comment and be sure to subscribe so that you never miss another post!
