Inking and resistance technique.

 


Distressing inks and stickles

 


I once read a tip that suggested making cards with the scraps left over from completed scrapbook pages. It makes a lot of sense -- the papers already match! If I don't have an immediate need for the card, I leave it blank so that I can grab it in an emergency and turn it into anything I need. This generic card could be a Thank You, Happy Birthday, Birth Announcement, etc.

Cow-nting down to 40! Little sister loves black and white cows, so I stamped and heat embossed this one on white paper before cutting it out and using pop dots to gift it a little lift.


Cardstock bleaching.

 


Rub-on doodles.

The ornament in the lower left corner was cut out from a foam stamping onto black cardstock and then lifted with pop dots.


"Fifi" was printed onto white cardstock and then "colored" with a puff pen (Liquid Appliqué by Marvy/Uchida). The inside of the card reads "Fifi says, 'Have a great Birthday, [name]!'."


Metallic stickers (Peel Offs by Magenta Style)

 


The block in the center is an ArtLenz hologram. Roll your cursor over the card for a simulation of the disappearing image effect.
