Stamp TV Technique Challenge 27

Last night was the premiere of the new stamps at Stamp TV. I didn’t get home from school until after 8:00PM, and by the time I got to the premiere it was over. I did see some fantastic new stamps and ideas. I woke up at 5:00AM because I have been doing that all week and decided to make a trip to Gina K’s store. The store opens at 9:00. So before I went I made this shaker card for Stamp TV technique challenge. This is another fun technique to try. When you shake the card the stuff at the bottom moves. It is like the petals are being blown by the wind. Very Cool!
I got to the store around 10:00 and I was so surprised to see and meet Gina K. She is the sweetest person and very helpful. The thing that surprised me the most is how tiny she is. Even this picture doesn’t show how really tiny she is. I am only 5’3" and I look tall next to her. That is me in the middle. Gina and Shelly were so nice. The store isn’t very big but it is well worth the drive.
Now about the cards.
Stamps: Many Wishes by Gina K and Say It With Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger
Card stock: Pure Luxury Ivory and Green Apple
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa and Bamboo Leaves
DP is paper designed by Gina K and it came in the TV kit. I ran out of it and I can’t get more so for the second card I used Basic Gray Lemonade Honey Bee
The stuff that shakes is called Flower Soft
Thanks for stopping. Let me know what you think.
