Design Team Wednesday with Katie!

Let's Get Creative with Color!

Adding color to ribbon and embellishments can be done with just about any medium. I used Copic's and distress stain. You could use spray ink/wash, watercolors even food dye! Just keep in mind things like water may affect your outcome so don't take your card out into the rain. :D 

 Customize your ribbon and twine for your project using Copics, Spectrum Noir or other alcohol markers. The Tim Holtz Distress Stains are also perfect for adding color to ribbon or other textile embellishments.

A beautiful stained look can be achieved with a brown Copic marker on wood embellishments.

I made a quick card using the dyed ribbon and embellishments along with paper from Amy Tangerine's Sketchbook collection 6x6 paper pad. The butterflies are from Studio Calico. The label edges were inked with the latest Distress Ink  from the Summer Limited Edition set- Salty Ocean.

Don't be afraid to dive in and get your hands dirty! Have Fun!

One of the card samples for our Operation Write Home event.

Operation Write Home is an organization that sends handmade cards to our military around the world. These cards are used to send greetings home to family and friends. I know from personal experience how wonderful it is to receive a card from a loved one on a long deployment. You can read more about Operation Write Home on their website- 

Stamp Fever has planned an Operation Write Home card drive for September 8 from 10am - 1pm.

There are 2 ways you can participate:
  • Bring your handmade cards to the store during our event that you would like to donate to this worthy cause. Please follow the card guidelines found HERE. You can also send "Any Hero Mail"; cards and letters of gratitude and encouragement to be sent to the troops. Find out more about Any Hero Mail HERE.
  • Join in the card-making fun at the store on the 8th. From 10-1 we will have tables set up so you can make cards using our examples or your own creations. You will need to bring your Basic Stamping Kit and any other supplies or products that you would like to use. The store will supply card stock, paper, stamps and ink.
We hope to have a large box to send to Operation Write Home so we will need your help. Please give Linda a call and let her know that you will be with us for this charitable event. 714 974-3552

And if that wasn't enough....we have a class scheduled in the afternoon on September 8 from 2-4pm.
Katie's Card Class

New Lockhart Stamps

We have the new Lockhart stamps for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas in the store. And as always Lockhart has sent along some pretty sweet card samples to get your creativity going.

Cute little trio of bats and I just love the Candy Corn many coloring possibilities!

These aren't a bit scary but think of the fun cards you could make with them. 
Okay that spider stamp is just upside down, he'll be fine once we flip him over.

This sweet turkey would look adorable on a greeting card or on a 
place card for your Thanksgiving gathering.
That sentiment says it all!

 How about some fresh looks for snowmen....juggling snowballs and stringing up lights.

And the holidays aren't complete without a bit of mistletoe and a poinsettia arrangement.

Get your favorite coloring method out and ready to go then stop by Stamp Fever to pick up some sweet holiday stamps. I see you spending some relaxing time coloring up some sweet images!
