Just Believe

Here is a card I just finished using the sketch at Friday Mashup, which was part of the challenge the other was to do some dry embossing, which I've done the panel with perfect polka dots embossing folder, I also used some of this new ribbon, its got a cute scalloped edge to it and has polka dots on one side and plain on the other. I used the set called Just Believe in Wild Wasabi and Marina Mist. I added a few rhinestones for some bling to finish it off.

Bleached Fabric Technique

This is a card I did using the bleached fabric technique, kind of different. Found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers. It works well with this image. After doing the image, I used the sketch over at Stamping 411. I'm also entering it into the challenge over at Stamping Daisies 
Thanks for looking.

Stained Glass

Over at Come and Get it this week we have a new technique challenge, given to us by the very talented Shell. She has chosen Stained Glass which you can find a tutorial at Split Coast Stampers in the resource section. For my card I chose to use the Elements of style set. Thanks for looking

Guest Designer this week at A la Card Monkey

This is the sketch I was given along with the theme of Autumn for the A La Card Monkey Guest Designer. So I pulled out my Day of Gratitude set and I had some fun with it.  I colored it with markers using Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, and Cajun Craze, after it was all colored I decided to use the rock and roll technique around the edges and add some Early Espresso. I stamped it on Very Vanilla, and cut it out. I used Early Espresso as my card base added a layer of More Mustard embossed with the new fold called snowburst, great for any kind of card. then I put a layer of Cajun Craze that I embossed with the new Houndstooth folder, added the greeting which is from the new Always Thankful Set and then used some early espresso bakers twine and tied knots through the buttons and adhered them.
