Inspiration Showcase Finishesd Canvas

Well....I know I said I would try to share some of my creations using the techniques in Jennifer McGuire's on-line class I have been taking.  I did not get any posts done...sorry....I was busy enough just getting the canvas completed  Now with that complete I can hopefully have more time to make cards using some of her wonderful ideas.
I do have my canvas completed however, and can share that with you....This was SOOO much fun to do.  Each tile is a different technique.....
Isn't it fun?   Now I can hang this in my Stamping area for instant inspiration.....LOVE IT!  This class was truly a fun thing for me to has gotten my creative juices flowing and all I think about is wanting to be stamping and creating.  Never enough hours in the day to play!

Hope your weekend is a wonderful one!      God Bless......Tammie

Inspiration Showcase Day One Card Sample

Good evening fellow bloggers.....I have not posted anything for over a month I know, but I was overwhelmed with last minute wedding details for my sons wedding.  The wedding was over last weekend and was a beautiful affair.   I  now officially have the most awesome daughter-in-law!   This is especially exciting for me as I never had any daughters of my own, only sisters either!  So....Another female has been long overdue.  WELCOME Becky to our family!!  I plan to post some pics of the invites and favors we did for the wedding later this month.

With the wedding over and my design team term with Skipping Stones Design completed in August also I was looking for a new project and found it!!  A wonderful on-line class from the fabulous Jennifer Maquire.  It is a technique class and I will hopefully have time to not only get the technique projects done, but also post some of the creations I try as I go. 
The first day was 5 different resist techniques.  This is the card I created using one of the resist tips:

I first stamped the text in black ink on while CS,  then the leaf background stamp over it in versamark ink, embossing it with clear embossing powder.  I then sponged the background in with distress inks and this is the magic that happened!  Fun! 

I am going to keep playing and hopefully will share a creation from Day 2 later this week.

Have a wonderful week!
