Two more cards to share!


I just can't seem to go to my studio to work on the newsletter these days without getting side-tracked by all the new stamp sets I have down there. I have made a dozen cards in the last few days! I'm having a blast. I have new stamps from Stampin' Up!, I Brake for Stamps, Artistic Outpost, Flourishes, Innovative Stamp Creations, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and Club Scrap. Let's just say I am reveling in rubber!


I am sharing two creations today, both using techniques from the most recent Technique Junkie Newsletter issue. The first card uses Stampin' Up!'s Always set on a Faux Denim background. Faux Denim is a December 2007 newsletter technique that was contributed by Ellen Kemper. The heart was stamped on a Simple Sumi (TJNL 10-05 issue) leftover piece I had in my stash, and is really pretty in person!

The second card today is uses the Colorwash Coloring Technique, also from the December 2007 issue of the newsletter. I added Crystal effects to the shell for dimension. The shell stamps are from Stampin' Up!'s new Seaside set. I have a "thing" for shell stamps, and these are some of my favorites, ever!
The Saying is from the Time to Stamp collection from I Brake for Stamps. The shells in that collection are also beautiful.

Okay, that is it for Show and Tell today -- come back tomorrow for the Wonderful Wednesday Giveaway -- and a preview of a technique from the upcoming February 2007 issue of the newsletter.

Just love the (Always) card. Lots of great details, especially like the cut out flowers and the photo corner.

Wow, the colors are so vibrant! Love that faux denim technique, rats and I am in the middle of my Anaheim Regional swaps and working in factory mode, no time for play. Beautiful cards Pat, I love those seashells too living near the coast we love all things beachy!

Beautiful! Both of them. I love the saying on the shell, I just ordered that stamp set but "need" that saying now! I also love that heart stmap, it is so pretty. So many stamps, so little money (and space!). I love what you did with techniques on the cards, stunning!
