MY Dog Ate THEIR Homework!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Oct 25, 2007 in Our Goldendoodle Puppies

So…I’m getting ready to go teach my Computers and Society class this afternoon and I walk out into the living room where I had been grading midterms and I find this:

Dog ate his homework

Yes, that’s right – one of my puppies chewed up one of my student’s midterms!!!!!  I had to piece it back together to see whose test it was!  Fortunately, I think I can still read the rest of the answers…hopefully, my student will be understanding about the condition of his test.

Should I give him extra points for this?!?! (the student, not the puppy)


Reverse Masking

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Oct 25, 2007 in Cards

Today’s SplitCoastStampers challenge was to use the masking technique in some way on a card.

I just received the True Friend stamp set yesterday and wanted to use it for my card.  After many attempts at masking the big flower and receiving less-than-pretty results, I decided to do a reverse mask using sticky notes to create a border instead.

Mask card


To do this technique, take sticky notes and arrange them to create a square on your cardstock.  Using a sponge, stipple brush or dauber, color the inside of the box with a light ink.  When you remove the notes, you have a nice shadow box effect.  After creating a box with River Rock ink, I stamped my flower image on top with So Saffron and Mellow Moss – I was going for a much softer look for today’s card.

If you look closely, you’ll also notice that I embossed the edges of the So Saffron layer with a brass template and stylus.  Dry embossing is a simple technique that adds a lot of elegance to a project.  I also used the paper piercer on this card, taffeta ribbon, the Word Window punch, a pearl from the Pretties kit…I used lots of supplies today! :)
