My Blog Picks and Posts from Here and There Around the Web #31

Hi All,

Here’s my latest set of Blog Picks from here and there around the web.  Generally, you’ll see all SU here on my blog but here and there I find inspiration that is eminently CASEable with SU Product so will share that as well with suggestions for alternate stamps and paper.  Feel free to copy and paste this list and pass it around to fellow stampers or customers or whoever.   Keep in mind there is a lot of inspiration out there and these are just a few of what I’ve found that struck my fancy (so it’s very subjective).   If you are an SU demo or customer and would like to see a more extensive list I have newsletters for both groups (free for right now) with more details, FYI, video and tutorial links.  Email me if you are interested.   Now with that plug out of the way here’s this weeks list of links.

  1. Thank you so much for posting me on your weekly blog picks! I am so appreciative as I am a “newbie” to this blogging and am just loving it! Thank you again!

    I made an error in the details…it was Acrylic Distress that I did on the Friends embossed background…not Acrylic Resist…I must have been “distressed” when I was writing it…LOL!

    I embossed the blush blossom cardstock with the Friends background, painted on some acrylic brown craft paint (had it in my stash and matched the close to cocoa color). I let that dry and then sanded with the sanding block the edges and embossing until I was happy with what was revealed. I then rubbed on chocolate chip ink with a sponge and wiped off with a tissue to highlight some of the areas. The edges were distressed and embossed with gold embossing powder. The stencil used for the edges was part of the Kind Thoughts Brocade stencil.

    Thanks again for listing me!
