Technique cards

These cards are for the countdown technique videos on Stamp TV. The top one use Cuttlebug wax paper technique. It didn't exactly work out like it should but it I still like the effect it had. I hope to try it again. The second card uses the cracked glass technique. I used Early Espresso ink to high light the cracks. The background paper was embossed with a brick folder which reminded me of an old coffee shop. I have been having a blast with Mugs & Kisses by Melanie. I will try and use a different set soon.

Newspaper mug

This was created using Stamp TV newspaper background technique. I used an old book. Distress Inks in different shades of blue were used. The mat behind the mug is Cranberry brown bag. I love this paper because after you emboss you can sand the paper to show the brown side. The ribbon is Stampin Up. I added distress paint to the edges of the card than added ink.

Sending Love

I have been trying to participate in Stamp TV's Top 10 video challenge. This is for the split window technique. It is much brighter and sparkly in person. I used distress inks for the background and then sprayed Perfect Pearls Mist. The tree is embossed so has great texture. I am trying something new with doing more CAS cards and am liking it. It is for There She Goes Challenge to use buttons.
