Olathe Stamp Club - April 2011

The Olathe hostess for April fell in love with waterfall cards, and I can certainly understand why... it's not everyday you find a card that can do somersaults! Guys and kids are especially impressed with these. You can find a nice little review tutorial at dawn griffith waterfall card.

To make a landscape background, we used the branch from Easter Blossoms, the humming bird from Elements of Style, and - did you recognize it? - Pocket Silhouettes for the foliage along the bottom. If you thought you noticed a bit of shimmer there as well, you're correct - I demonstrated the faux mother-of-pearl technique using Stampin' Up's versatile Shimmer Paint on glossy cardstock. It adds just the right amount of subtle shine. IMHO, of course! -Kathy
