This is a new technique from Technique Junkies (www.patstamps.com) which I love. Uses my latest favorite tool the cuttlebug and a foam brayer.
I made this card for a special friend who has a birthday coming up - I think she'll like it. I always try to make her card something different but something I know she can do herself. I know she has the cuttlebug not sure about the foam brayer but thats not hard to add to the tool list.
Anyways I hope you like.

I saw this idea on another blog so had to try it out. Its called a bib card because I guess it looks like a babies bib - all you need is a score blade and colluzle circle to make the basic card and then you can decorate how you want.
I made this one last night for a friend whose just had surgery for skin cancer - thought she needed cheering-up.
I used a circular window charm to add the flower then punched a hole for the brad - thought it added dimension. The words are embossed with my Cuttlebug - I love that thing!

This card is a total lift from one of the stamping magazine - can't remember which - sorry! The snowman comes from the CTMH October Stamp of the Month - he's a cute little fellow to add to any card but I felt he worked in the focus here.

Here's another Christmas Card but with none traditional colors and a little sparkle. I'm teaching this one this month - a follow on to the tag card from last month as there is no stamping involved its all folding. Very clever folding of 5 different sized squares to be exact. I didn't come up with the idea but I certainly think its cute - don't you!

I know its been a longtime since I posted and the reason was I've taken on another part-time job and was justing trying to get myself organized into a new routine.
This is one of the new techniques from the technique junkies newsletter (www.patstamps.com). Its really easy to do and I love the effect. I dried this sample with a heat gun but prefer the look it creates when it dries naturally - but managed to cut my finger and bleed on that one so I won't share it until the replacement version dries.
I'm teaching this one this month so anyone in class will get to learn it.
