Well, it has taken me a week to "recover" from the Fort Wayne Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Getaway last weekend. I've finally gotten everything put away and I'm working my way through answering emails & responding to special requests.
Instead of typing up instructions multiple times and sending out numerous emails, I decided to dedicate this post to some of the popular projects from the show. There are a few other projects that I want to share, but I'll have to get some tutorials together first.
I wasn't surprised that the "front cover ornament" was a project that got a ton of attention at the show. It is truly beautiful. I made one that is identical to the cover, and then 2 more that are a bit simpler to create.
These are a little more involved than my usual projects, so I'm not going to recreate the wheel and make a new tutorial. If you already subscribe to my email newsletter, you should have received the tutorial in your inbox this weekend. And if you're not a subscriber, you can view my newsletter here (it's about half-way down). Don't forget to subscribe so that you can start receiving my newsletters.
I actually watched this video to learn how to create the ornament. It's a little long, but she describes the process very well.
Another project that was very popular was a punch art card that I received in a swap from convention. The card was created by fellow demonstrator Wendi Sands and it is so CUTE! I'm going to try to make my own soon.
As far as I can tell, these are the supplies used on this card.
STAMP SET: Dinoraur
INK: Early Espresso (edges sponged with brown ink), Wild Wasabi
PAPER: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Bashful Blue
PUNCHES: 2-1/2" Circle, Small Oval, Large Oval, Extra-Large Oval, 1/2" circle, 3/4" circle, Itty Bitty Shapes (circle), Petite Pennants Builder
