This technique is from the Feb/Mar 2009 Technique Junkies Newsletter. As I said in the June 14th post I've had fun using the same Stampin' Up stamp set to try different colors and techniques. For a description of this card please see that post as the two cards are similar. This card I used EK Success Paper Shapers Interlaced Corner Adorner punch on all four corners and left off the ribbon. Stampin' Up colors for this card are Really Rust, Night of Navy , Very Vanilla, and Garden Green. I'm thinking I need to try this technique using pastel colors and give something feminine a try. Thanks for stopping By and hope you enjoy my blog.

Two more Father's Day cards. These are using Technique Junkies Feathered Tye-Dye technique from the Dec 08 /Jan 09 newsletter. Card stock, markers, and stamp is Stampin' Up. Color Washes are Ranger Adirondack and Memories Mist and inks are StazOn and Ranger Adirondack. This is a fun technique that requires you to moisten, crumple, and then straighten a paper towel. After spraying with the color washes, the paper towel is sprinkled with table salt and then microwaved. That's what causes the feathering. Of course you have to be careful not to scorch your paper towel.

This is another card I did for a friend. Ink for embossing is VersaMark and embossing powder is Judi Kins. Card stock, ribbon, markers, and stamps are all Stampin' Up. Ovals were cut and embossed using the Cuttlebug and Spellbinders Nestabilities dies. The background layer is Basic Gray although it looks a bit purple in the picture.
Finally getting around to posting this Mother's Day card I made for a friend. Stamps, card stock, ribbon, and inks are all Stampin Up. The ovals were cut using Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder was used for the Pretty In Pink layer. Halcraft Bead Gallery beads were strung on a Jewelry Essentials corsage pin. I need to find the little tips that you put on the end of pins to cover the sharp point and keep the beads in place. Evidently they have to be ordered online as none of the stores I've checked carry them.
