Technique Club Cards

Hello! Friday evening was the first meeting of my technique hostess club. We had a great time and did some fun techniques (and our hostess earned a level 2 hostess set, a Sale-a-Bration set, and $40 in free merchandise). Below are the cards that we made. The first one is a Valentine's Day card that we made for our hubbies. It uses the inset (or inlaid) embossing technique, which I originally learned about from Lyssa Zwolanek's blog here. It is a really simple but fun technique and it really gives a cool effect. To make the main image, we punched out some hearts and attached them to the Basic Black cardstock using Tombow multi adhesive. Once the glue was dry, we ran the cardstock through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice embossing folder. The pressure of the folder makes the punched images look like they are part of the paper. Cool, huh?

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Full of Life (for the "Love" sentiment)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler marker
Paper: Basic Gray, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories: Tombow Multi Adhesive, Owl punch, Small Heart punch, Large Heart punch, Small Oval punch, Large Oval punch, Scalloped Oval punch, Cherry Cobbler seam binding, Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing folder
Techniques: Inset Embossing, Marker to Stamp

This is the second card that we made. I CASE'd this card from Crystal Lenssen's blog here. It showcases the Rock n Roll technique. It is another simple technique that gives a nice "wow" effect. It definitely gives the stamped image a nice level of dimension. All you do is ink your solid stamp using a light-colored ink and then roll the edges of the stamp in a darker-colored ink. The flowers on this card were stamped using this technique. I think it makes the flowers look very pretty. I also really like this color combination (pear pizzazz, perfect plum, baja breeze). What do you think?

Supplies Used:
Stamps: For All You Do
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze
Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Scalloped Border punch, 1 3/8" Circle punch, Pear Pizzazz poly-stitched ribbon, dimensionals, glue dots
Techniques: Rock n Roll
Thanks for stopping by today! Stop back by soon- I have a few other cards that I will be posting in the next few days.
