Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Event - Floating Reinker and Polished Stone Techniques

Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper, Ribbon & Brad
I held my Annual Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration event the other Saturday.  I ask my customers to give me ideas for techniques they would like to learn.  This year we did Polished Stone  and Floating Reinker techniques.

Here is the sample I made for the Polished Stone technique.  It also features some Sale-A-Bration rewards - Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper, and the Ribbon & Brad Pack.

Stamp Set:  Sweet Cake (sentiment)
Card Stock:  Whisper White, Glossy White, Calypso
Classic Ink Refills: Calypso Coral, Pool Party

I took pictures of some of the cards that my customers made.  This shows how different the Polished Stone will look depending on the amount of reinker that is used and how much it is rubbed into the cardstock.


We also did the Floating Reinker technique.  Here is the class sample which features the Bordering on Romance stamp set from the 2012 Occasions Mini catalog.

Stamp Set: Bordering on Romance
Card Stock:  Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Shimmery White
Ink:  Craft Whisper White
Accessories:  Embossing Powder - White; Classic Ink Refills - Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery, Gardne Green; Framelits - Label Collection; Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - Tulip Frame

Here a few made by customers. Some chose to use Fifth Avenue Floral instead of Bordering on Romance.

Sale-A-Bration ends March 31, 2012, so there isn't must time left to earn those Sale-A-Bration rewards.
