So long SAF 2013

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Closing Ceremony

I crafted alone for SAF, which is probably a good thing, get me and two Golden Retrievers in my little space and there is not much room for anything else!!

Below are all of the cards that I created during SAF 2013.

Sugar Coated!

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Sweet Sugar Coated Embellishments

For this one I used Dawn McVey's "puffy" sugar coating technique. I think this is one of the best winter set that PTI has...I just love it!

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Limited Ingredients Challenge

Here is the list of supplies you are able to use for this challenge.  You don't HAVE to use all of these supplies, but you cannot use anything that is not included on this list(except for a neutral ink, like white, gray and black)
  • white cardstock
  • white or transparent glitter(Prisma Glitter)
  • 1-3/4" circle punch or die
  • 1" strip of light gray cardstock (Soft Stone)
  • melon cardstock & ink (Melon Berry)
  • aqua cardstock & ink (Aqua Mist)
  • golden yellow cardstock & ink (Harvest Gold)
Here is my take on this challenge. I know it doesn't say anything about the Take Three die, but I noticed that Nichole and some of the other girls used other dies, so I hope it's all good!

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Whipping Up Scent-sational Cards

This was a pretty cool technique that I have never tried. I used cherry Kool-Aid, which worked fine, but was a little coarse. I think the sugar-free jello/pudding might be a little finer.
I love the deep red color that the Kool-Aid made my cherries.

Shrink Film

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Custom Accents from the Oven

This might sound crazy, because I have been crafting most of my life, but I have never played with this stuff before!! I decided to shrink the clock and hands from Hands Of Time, after I shrunk my clock, I colored it with Copics. I want to try the Damask Snowflakes like Dawn McVey did, I loved them!!

SAF Gallon:Quart:Pint

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Gallon:Quart:Pint

I pulled out my new PTI Autumn Pattern Pieces for this one. I think this is going to become one of those sets that I reach for over and over again.

SAF Sprinkle of Salt

                  This was one of my favorite techniques, and I can't wait to play with it some more.I think i will                                                                         add a little glitter to my salt.

SAF mixing Mist

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Mixing Mists to Match

For this card I made Royal Velvet and Canyon Clay mist.I stamped the flowers with Versamark, then heat embossed with white. After the card was done, I kinda wished that I had embossed with gold, I just might have to give that a try!

SAF rolled dough

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Rolled Dough Designs

On this card I rolled a little bit Delight clay, then let it dry. Once it was dry I ran it through my big Shot to cut out my leaves, then stamped them. I also did the Melissa Phillips technique, dying it with re-inkers, then putting it between two sheets of vellum and  then I die cut my flowers.

STF Tea staining

Stamp-a-faire 2013: Tea Staining Techniques

I decided to go with Melissa Phillips tea dyed flower, I love her flowers, mine...not so much! I think that I just layered way to many layers. I think I will give it another go soon though.
