Technique of the week: Graduation Bling!

This graduation card was designed to be given to any grad from any school.  The background color can easily be modified for any school's color.  The letters were cut on the big shot using the silver glimmer paper (currently out of stock) but could also be cut out of the silver foil paper.

Technique of the Week: Pennants and Banners

The Perfect Pennants stamp set and the Banners Framelits Dies make the perfect bundle.  This card came together very quickly.  I love stamps and coordinating framelits or punches.

Technique of the Week: Layering

First of all, I would like to thank the 3 people that read my blog every week.  There is so much to learn about blogging - how to do it, when to do it - the list is endless.  Even though the amount of things to learn is overwhelming, I grow more confidant with every post.  Until of course I can not figure something out and then I have to call my friend that writes a great blog that you can find here.

This week's technique is about layering.  The focal image was stamped twice once with Basic Gray and once with Bermuda Bay.  The friendship banner was cut out of the Bermuda Bay image and placed over the Basic Gray image using Stampin' Dimensionals.

If you are still reading - I would love it if you left a comment!  Have a great day.

Technique of the Week: Adding depth

I am not sure what the actual name for this card is but I call it the cut back card.  The base is cut for a 4.25" x 5.5" card.  From the front of the card at 1" strip is cut off.  The patterned paper was applied to the inside of the card.  The sentiment is placed on the front but hangs off of the edge.

Technique of the Week: Background paper

I love this Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper!  (The truth of the matter is a have what some people might call a slight paper problem.......I have loved paper since I was a little girl and I have way too much of it but that does not stop me from collecting more.)

The background on this card is made from one piece of two sided paper.  The paper was cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" to fit the card.  I then trimmed off two pieces 3/4" wide and flipped them over.  I then faux stitched them.
