Scrapbooking weekend with Sherrill Graff

Monday, September 24, 2012

Carolyn Garland, Sherrill Graff and Stampin Up Products

Sherrill has been in Canada with George and I
for 5 days now and has been sharing some fun stamping ideas.
All the girls are so happy when Sherrill comes here
They learn so many many new things.

One of the first ideas she shared this time around was
How to make hand painted papers using stampin up ink refills and
whisper white cardstock.

She calls the technique Hand Painted Papers

The paper can be torn while it is still wet to give you a ruff edge

When the paper is wet you can tear it and roll it into flowers.

You can stamp images onto the wet paper so the ink absorbs into it like she did with these leaves.

We used sponge daubers to apply the inks so that the colors would be closer
together since we were working with such small papers.

Friday night Carolyn and her stamping gals had a shoe box swap

The girls covered a large paper clip Carolyn gave them.

Then Sherrill taught how to make multi colored ink pads
using stampin up supplies.

This is a multi colored pad made out of an old so saffron ink pad.
so saffron, pumpkin pie and soft suede ink was used.

This image was stamped in a multi color versa mark pad
(Sherrill is teaching this class again in Virginia at the end of the month for Barbara's friends)
