Years ago our yahoo group, Creative Stamping Friends, did Technique University challenges. Pat from Technique Junkies shared the Warhol technique with us then and I thought it was SO hard. (It is now in a past issue of Technique Junkies Newsletter.) I remember how challenged I was when I did it years ago. This time was easier…don’t know if my stamping "eye" has expanded or I’ve seen more samples done since Lisa Somerville does this technique to perfection, but I could see the Warhol immediately when I looked at the new set, Winter Post. Here is a SNEAK PEAK of a couple stamps from this set along with the SNEAK PEAK of new Designer Paper, Frosty Day. Very retro colors for holiday paper, don’t you think? I love it!
For the details, I stamped the Snowflake with Chocolate Chip Craft ink on each of the colors, then embossed with clear embossing powder. Very shiny! I mounted the colors of Really Rust, Kiwi Kiss, Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla cardstock. Then I stamped and embossed the Santa Postmark and punched with the 1" circle punch. I sliced a small piece of the new Frosty Day designer paper (you KNOW the first cut is the hardest!) and layered the 5/8 Chocolate Chip grosgrain over top. I wanted something in the center of my snowflakes and was inspired when I saw my Pretties Kit with the vanilla half pearls in a perfect size! I started with a base card of Old Olive since I wanted a little contrast between the Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive. I love how those two colors work together, too!
Hope you enjoy the weekend. I’ll still be busy working on my craft fair items…I’ll have lots to share after next week!
