I sponged the Presto paper with Wild Wasabi and then spayed it with Vanilla Smooch spray, I did use a retired set because he is very into antique cars (not the really cool motorcycle stamp we have now). The spray just makes it shine, a wonderful touch that doesn't overwhelm the look of the card. I am going to use this technique in my "Presto" Paper class scheduled in July, it is such a WOW effect.

My last Big Shot class was so much fun! We did 3 cards using denim, cork, and some bling and these are the results. The cards are very elegant in person, simple but really gets the "wow's" flowing. I just love the embossing folders for the Big Shot, they are a great addition to our Brass Templates for dry embossing. I can hardly wait to see the new Idea Book and Catalog in July!!! I bet they have some awesome new Big Shot toys!

My layout is of our Grandmother, Delores. She was a colorful woman so I thought a colorful background was appropriate. I also misted this layout with our new Smooch Spray (available in out Summer Mini Catalog), it adds a bit of bling without detracting from the picture. I hope that you can see the detail of the flourishes in the paper, it is so elegant. The paper is so versatile too, it makes great cards and home decor.....I think I'm formulating a new class as I speak. You'll want to check my website at www.jackiehoward.stampinup.net to see what I've come up with.

Welcome to my blog! I am looking forward to sharing ideas, discussing techniques, posting my creations and giving you sneak peeks of upcoming class projects. I love getting together in person, but I realize that's not always possible so it will be great to have you visit me 24/7 in the blog world. So, I do hope you come back and see me often.
