Authentique: Finger Misting

 

FINGERMISTING, A NEW TECHNIQUE!

Hi friends!  Vivian here to share a new technique video (really easy and fun!) and some projects with brand spanking new stamps from Hampton Art and Authentique!  That's right, I said "Authentique!"  I'm so thrilled about all the new partnerships between Hampton Art and wonderful paper manufacturers - yeah!  Our designers at Hampton Art will share all the goodies with you through the course of this month.

Here's a shot of the project I featured in my video tutorial.

Vivian Keh Hampton Art Authentique You are my sunshine

Hope it lures you to the tube.  In the video, I provide a couple more fun interpretations of my new technique I shall name, "Fingermisting!"  If it gets your crafty gears churning, try it yourself.  I know y'all have mists to use up!

 

Vivian Keh Fingermisting Technique

***Supply list available in description box under the video.

While the card above is modern and bursting with color, for CHA (that's the Craft and Hobby Association show if you didn't know already), I did some more traditional/vintage style projects with the same stamps.

A layout...

And a few cards...

A testament to the versatility of these amazing stamps and the wide range of crafters who will be able to love and use them!

KI Memories: 4th of July

 

Here’s a great summer layout idea from Shannon Tidwell!  If you’re anything like us, we’re always a few holiday’s behind on our scrapbooking Smile 

“I had a little fun with my circle punches and pop dots on this layout. I punched circles in three different sizes out of the same paper and created a border of sorts across the page. With such a big design element I concentrated the rest of my embellishments in smaller clusters.“

Friendship

 

Design team member Adora Concepcion here! 

The thing with card making is it’s really hard to stop with one. I’m sure some of you can relate!  As you can see, I mostly used the same supplies on these cards except for the stamps. I guess I can’t stand to see the unused half of the paper/supplies that I started with so I end up with at least 2 cards at a time. Good thing is no one can not have too many cards, right!?

Thanks for stopping by!

Playing with Color

 

 

PLAYING WITH COLOR AND MY FAVORITE STAMPS

Hi friends!

Vivian here with a few projects to share at Hampton Art today.  First, a colorful card which displayed at the Craft and Hobby Association show in Anaheim this last weekend.  It uses a bunch of brand new Hampton Art/7 Gypsies stamps that were revealed at the show.

choose happy

Folks, there are so many beautiful stamps coming being produced by Hampton Art!!!  I must confess, I'm in love with these stamps - the variety of beautiful insects...

ChooseHappy_B

The fun sentiments...

ChooseHappy_C

and the signature 7 Gypsies style, which makes our grungy and vintage projects shine so so effortlessly.  I can't wait until they become available to you!

As I whipped this card up in the rush to get projects ready for CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) show, I didn't have a chance to photograph progress shots.  But I did want to share with you the easy techniques that went into this colorful project, so I made a whole new project/video tutorial  with some of my absolute favorite Hampton Art stamps that are readily available!  Sneak peak to lure you over to youtube!

HotAirBalloon_B1

The video is ready and available for your viewing pleasure here!  Hope you'll take a break from your day to check it out - you just may be inspired to get funky wit' yo' colors!

-Vivian

***Supply list  for the project above can be found in the description box under the video.
