Stamping Crop Project

Just want to share how much fun we had at our stamping ministry crop Saturday!  We each took turns "teaching" a project.  All of the projects were fun and we all learned some new ideas and techniques.  Here are some cards using my napkin technique:

I promised to put my project directions and card pictures on the blog, so here it is.  This is not a new technique, but I thought it would be fun to revisit it.  You need an iron and ironing board, some pretty napkins, plastic wrap, card stock, and large pieces of scrap paper.  
Just place a large piece of newsprint or scrap paper on the ironing board, then your card panel, then a piece of plastic wrap a little larger than the card panel, then the napkin (be sure to use only the top ply...most napkins have two plys, some have three).  Finally placa another piece of newsprint on top of this sandwich and press with a medium hot iron, no steam, for a few seconds till thelastic wrap melts and the napkin adheres to he card stock.  When cool, trim off excess napkin from the panel, and finish your card.

You will notice from my pictures that I ran some of my finished napkin panels through the cuttlebug with an embossing folder to give it some texture!
It's easy, and fun.  Let me know if you try it!
