I can't believe my anti-procrastination "resolution" is paying off! These cards aren't due until 10/06 and I am so ready to mail them off!!! I am seriously besides myself! Hopefully I can keep it up so I wont do that last minute cards anymore. Phew....
Here is my card for the "New Technique" swap my other right hand lady, Sonya, for my MSN group is hosting. It is a "Criss Cross" card technique that can be found at Split Coast Stampers HERE.
This is how the card looks like with the insert.
And here it is with the insert taken out.
I am loving Stampin' Up's designer paper. This one is called Creepy Crawly. I also combined a couple of Stampin' Up sets. The sets used are Autumn Apparitions (Happy Halloween), Party Punch (Happy Halloween Cat), & Priceless (both large & small swirls).
Also here I finished up this card for another swap hosted by Sonya called Pink & Black.
I really loved the outcome of this one. I hadn't used my "Swirly" wheels from Stampin' Up and thought I would combine it here. I stamped the Stipple Butterfly from Stampin' Up onto acetate sheet and used black fine detail embossing powder and trimmed closely around it. I used glue dots to "glue" it down and then added another glue dot to each wing and gave it a "lift" for dimension. The wheels are called: Baroque Border (the narrow one) & So Swirly (the wider one). A note about my wheels: I UN-MOUNT MINE! *gasp* I'm not a great roller, I can't roll to save my life, so I unmounted my wheels and use an acrylic block when I stamp. I'll post a tutorial later for those interested in unmounting their wheels.
Until then....thanks for looking!
