Stamping Sisters Camp Winter 2021 - Day 3

Welcome back to the third day of the Stamping Sisters Mini Card Camp Winter 2021. Today's instructor/counselor is the super creative Kelly. I tell you, she has me looking at junk mail with new eyes today. 

On her blog (check it out - HERE) she instructed us to get creative with pages from magazines and such. She actually gave a few ideas (complete with samples) of how to use our magazines in cardmaking. Each idea is noteworthy and I suspect I'll be revisiting this idea as soon as the mailman delivers some suitable materials.

That being said, I didn't have much to work with - all I could find was a Young Living catalog that my daughter left here when she went back to Alaska months ago. (Sorry, Brittney; I hope you didn't want that catalog intact. I kinda sorta used part of it.)

What I did discover - and Kelly told us to expect it - it takes a very VERY long time for ink to dry on slick magazine paper. I also discovered that the ink loses its vibrancy as it dries... so my rose is a little muted.


I think it still looks like a rose, though, so that's good.


Kelly, thank you for a fun tutorial today!


Be sure to check out the cards on Darlene, Kelly, and Barb's blogs, too.

  3. Loving your muted rose Jeanette - like you I don't have magazines in the house - the best I could find at short notice would be the current supermarket flier :)
    Stay safe
    Blessings
