Versa Shadow Video Tutorial!!

Happy Sunday Stampers!!
I have a treat for you all~ I have been asked my MANY viewers to share how I do the Versa Shadow Technique, and I thank all of you who have left such sweet comments.  I have been CRAZY busy the last few weeks and had hoped to get this up before now, but it just wasn’t in the cards.  I love this technique that I am actually submitting it on a few projects to Stampin’ Up! for some upcoming contests :) I have never enter into any by Stampin’ Up! BUT you all made me think maybe this is worth submitting- so THANK YOU!!!
So this page I made for a few things- First off I wanted a page to showcase my kids for getting their awards on Friday (I even made them wear clothes to school that would coordinate with the theme of this page, how sick am I!!)
Second- I had a few challenges that I used as inspiration for this project.  I used the sketch from Try Stampin on Tuesday and the the photo inspiration from 4 Crafty Chicks!  I also threw in a little Versa Shadowing for good measure and I included a VIDEO TUTORIAL!!! (cause honestly I hate to type *hehe*)
Check out the little flowers, I made them like I did when I was a kid… remember in school when you made those tissue paper flowers with small squares of tissue and the eraser end of a pencil- dipped it in glue and smashed it on your project, yep those! Of course with a pearl.

Here’s my inspiration photos

MAN seats are filling up quick!! Don’t delay to REGISTER for the SPRING FLING STAMP CAMP!!!  REGISTER HERE!!!

  1. Thank you for sharing this technique. It works like a dream. I hope you don’t mind if I use it for a challenge I’m offering on Artsy Inkers. I’m linking to your video and giving you credit. I made a set of five cards, and I will definitely be using it again in the future.

    Thank you.
