Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

 
Aloha, one and all! 
 
First, many sincere thanks to Lori for asking me to host this weeks MIUM Challenge! You know? It TRULY is a humbling honor to be asked to participate -- thank you, Lori!!!
 
It's October already! October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. No doubt this month will be filled with supporting this important cause. However, I would like to spin this challenge to another important area that tends not to receive much attention -- remembering the older people in our world who have lived their lives fully, and who could use any loving attention or even help we can provide for them. Oftentimes, many elderly ones feel so alone, all year long. 
 
October 1, The International Day of Elderly People
 
This Challenge is "Anything Goes" for an older person who could use encouragement -- this can be a card of any shape or size all by itself. It can be a decorative label on a jar of jam, on a small home cooked meal, or the label on the cover of a beautiful loaf of bread. Perhaps it could be an amazing tag attached to some hand picked flowers.
 
Anything Goes means exactly that -- ANY PAPER CRAFT with ANY TECHNIQUE you would like to make. Personally, I would enjoy reading your technique names :) in your descriptions.
 
 
I made 3 cards with 3 different techniques for you. I used one stamp set to show just how versatile Gina K stamps can be ☺
 
My first card is based on one of Gina's Emboss Resist videos (I have been emboss resist challenged since I began here at STV & decided it IS time to confront my fears). Her video is the below link:
 
 

{Stamp Sets - Whimsical Spring & Assorted Greetings by gkd; Clear Embossing Powder; distress inks in Peeled Paint and Tea Dye, cardstock Fresh Asparagus and Pure White (sorry the color is off) 80#/copper brads and double stitched tan ribbon from gkd). Lime crystal leaf charm from stash; Sakura clear star glitter pen colored all over the leaves.}
 
 
My second card is another technique I have difficulties mastering, and must continue working on - Using Chalks with Chalk Enhancer. Gina has a wonderful tutorial video you can watch about this technique here:

 
{Stamp Set - Whimsical Spring; Pastel chalks by Pebbles; Chalk enhancer & water barrel paint brush; Shimmer spray (I made my own w/Perfect Pearls white & H2O) over the floral focal image, cut out and pop dotted; cardstock Passionate Pink and Pure White 80# by gkd; Spellbinders Floral Ovals large, cut center out with Classic Ovals large to make a frame, pop dotted the pink floral frame and the flower focal image for 3D effect; matching grosgrain ribbon by gkd; embossing folder Darice large flowers; pearls and heart crystal from stash; corner rounder punch to two corners.}
 
The third and LAST☺card is based on Gina's video Watercolor Spritz which you can watch here:
 
 
{Stamp set - Whimsical Spring by gkd, Memento markers Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Lady Bug, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, (and Grape Jelly for the faux stitching around oval). Color over the images with Sakura Clear Glitter Pen, add Liquid Pearls in Butterscotch for antennae dots. Edge oval with cantaloupe. Cut out Spellbinders Floral Oval and use all the above inks to create a marbling design. Sheer/satin edged purple ribbon, purple crystals, and butterfly charm from stash. Darice embossing folder Argyle. Cardstock Grass Green and Pure White gkd.}
