Colored Au Chocolat

Someone on SCS posted some great stamping demonstrations by Linda H.  I got some great tips to pass along.  My favorite was – how to get colored Au Chocolat paper by just applying ink.  I tried markers and brayer on these 3 cards.  But then I thought about sponging the saffron ink for the flower […]

 I thought I would give a few more details about this card, since not everyone had time to make it at the meeting.  I had a difficult time figuring this one out, but if you look at the second photo, it all makes sense.  The slit is made before you fold up the mini envelope.  […]
