MICHAEL STRONG STAMP GROUP BLOG HOP

Here we are suppose to share the first stamp we got  off of Mike......ummm I don't remember but I am thinking it was this tree stamp. I see he has a set of them now but when I got this one it was the only one by itself. I don't remember when I joined this group but it was a friend in another group that told me about it. So I checked it out and joined. I enjoy his stamps and love to create with them. So the first card I made was with some toilet paper and his frame stamp. Saw this some where and can't remember where but wrote down the instructions. Which are simple. Use 8 piece's of one ply toilet paper and some water, use a stipple brush and wet brush apply to stamp and push it gently into the nooks and crannies. Let dry then remove. Here are a couple of pictures of the finished project.
      Now here is the other side. One side is more defined then the other not sure if you can see it. Also do one sheet of toilet paper at a time. Should have put this in earlier.
And here is the card I made out of the tree stamp.

ok you should have come from   Herma  and you can go to  here Lori If you get lost along the way go here to start. Hetty. I hope I got all this right.

Almost forgot to show the card I made from the toilet paper,lol.

It is a bit hard to take a picture of it . But it is a black and white .
Enjoy or hop it has been 6yrs in the making and going strong.

GRANDSON'S BIRTHDAY CARD

I made his card a bit bigger this year. All stuff used on it are from PAPERWISHES.

I used some crystal lacquer on the happy,ice cream and cupcake to make them pop more. The ice cream and cupcake are on pop dots to make them dimensional. This one was fun to make. Can't believe he is nine already.

PURPLE CARD

Here is a new purple card that i will replace on the OUTLAWZ CAS CHALLENGE. I just don't think it was right, so here is my new card for it. It will go into my OWH box.
The stamp is from a GINAK not sure of the name of it. Will check an add it to this post later.
Ok the stamp set is called BOTANICALS. The background is made by applying ink to the stamping block and stamping on to the cardstock then inking up the image and stamping on top of the background. Pretty easy with lots of different colors. And so easy. I did clean the block before adding the stamp image.
