 Good Day My Friends
   Lets start by announcing the winners.........
The lucky winner for the Mystery Host is...........Roxanne Basler from KS Congrats Roxanne you won 160.00 of Stampin'Up! product of your choice. I will contact you this afternoon after I'm back from work. 
The Lucky Winner for the Family of 10 ink pads is Lola Wood from WA. Congrats Lola your ink will be in the mail tomorrow :)  Please note that starting tomorrow I will have another drawing for another family of ink plus another mystery host going on, just in time with the retired list coming out tomorrow. I will have all the detail tomorrow but one thing you have to remember when they announce the retired list it will be while supplies last so some items will go fast so if it's some thing on the list that you really want in your collection I would say place your order quickly. I will have the post ready to go and post it soon I get the list, it should be around 7:15 AM So I will have the post schedule to e-mail delivery at 9am so don't panic if you don't see a e-mail from me at  the crack of dawn :) it will be shortly after 9am. You can check my blog at 7:15 ish to see if its up.
Now about the video (on my blog www.frenchiestamps.com) the technique is call Thumping. My sweet friend Glenda show me this one and I loved it. What you will need is a detail stamp you can use small one or big one you can see I did it on a small one to. Marker color of your choice. So the main thing is to thump the markers on your stamp super simple and if you have some good Rock & Roll Music in the background it will be perfect for this technique HA You will see in the video how simple this is to make. Here the list of what I use for this card
  • Stamp set Swallowtail page 18 in the spring catalog, Petite Pairs page 134 for the greeting and the Papillon Potpourri this is the small butterfly that I try. 
  • Color of Markers More Mustard, Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry 
  • Card stock Glossy, Tempting Turquoise and Rich Razzleberry
  • Punches: Scallop Oval #119856 and large oval #119855

  1. Hey France, if you have the largest clear acrylic block, you could use it instead of brayer or rubbing to get even pressure.

  2. Neat technique. I am going to try it. Just got the butterfly. Will this work on regular cardstock?

  3. This is wonderful and so simple. Thanks for the video!
