Designing cards with acetate and stazon!

This came out absolutely beautiful!  I couldn't be happier.  Very hard to photograph though.  I took a piece of acetate, cut it for a 5x7 card and the stamped swirls all over the cover with white stazon ink.  Then I used brads to adhere the front flower piece.  It then became clear that I should use the xyron to adhere the other pieces!  The flower is done by transferring a sticker to double sided adhesive and then using glitter ritz for color.

How to use the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch

I never make the same size card!  So, what do I do about the envelope?  See how to use the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch.  If you are mathematically inclined, you may be able to figure out how to use these measurements to score and fold without the punch!

Played with inks, layering, and flower making!  Wish I stayed away from the bottom orange ink layer, but like the results!

White Colored Pencil Resist Technique

Here is a quick video on doing a white colored pencil resist!  I wanted my butterfly to have a unique look, so I made a stencil, used a white colored pencil and then used watercolor pencils/gelatos to color in the butterfly.

Colored Pencils with Black Cardstock

Sometimes black cardstock is overlooked and underutilized, especially when it comes to colored pencils.  Here is a birthday card that I made for a co-worker using Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils and Stampin' Up Whisper White craft ink.  To see how I made this card, visit this Technique Tuesday video!
