Today's Try that Technique is the Gated Tag Card from the February 2008 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. What you see above is the INSIDE of the card -- with the tags.
One of the things I love about this technique is that there are lots of parts to stamp -- the more the merrier! Here is the outside of the card:
My Gated Tag Card uses the Arts and Crafts kit from Club Scrap. I love the stamps and paper from this kit. So elegant and beautiful! I chose to stamp my tags and the outside of the card with colors from the designer paper; I used markers to color the separate areas of the stamps. On the inside of the tag packet, I used the stencil from the kit and sprayed Glimmer Mist over it to get the gorgeous designs onto the olive card stock. Do you ever fall in love a little bit when you create? I fell in love with this card...just a little bit.
Make sure to check out Beth's card, too, on the TJ Design Team Blog. That girl can STAMP!
Just a quick story about the Club Scrap Kit...last week, I received my kit mid-week and I was smitten. Sometimes I am hesitant to cut into my kits; they are just too pretty to violate! Lately, though, I am on a mission to actually use them and spread the joy of their existence. When I received this last week, I quickly went about making the Try that Technique card -- because I mistakenly thought LAST week was Gated Tags. I had to wait a WHOLE week to display this card!
