Remember, you can win free stamps, too, so head over to the Rubbernecker blog for all the deets!! Our Design Team, as always, will delight you with their creations. Be sure to visit their blogs:
I used the faux embossing technique on my card today. You can see the tutorial for this technique on the Rubbernecker Blog. Fired Brick Ranger Distress Ink was sponged on the white cardstock and then it was stamped using the How Do I Love Thee stamp misted with water and dried with the heat tool. Since the Distress inks are water based, stamping with water will lift the color and leave a white impression when dry. The Poinsettia was stamped three times with the Fried Brick, once on the background and twice on a piece of white cardstock and embossed with clear ep. The poinsettias on the white cs were colored with Fried Brick using the ink pad and an aqua pen, both poinsettias and the background were misted with Perfect Pearls mixed with water. When dry, the poinsettias were then cut out and layered on top of the one stamped on the background, attached with dimensionals, and pearls were added to the centers. The sentiment was stamped with Black Soot and the ribbon and pearls finish it off.
Recipe: Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: Handsom Hunter, Whisper White, Black, The Paper Studio dp
Ink: Ranger Distress Inks Fried Brick and Black Soot
Accessories: Pearls, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Clear ep, Perfect Pearls
Thanks for visiting today and have fun on the Treasure Hunt!!!

Your card is gorgeous! My favorite technique lately is the Emerging Color technique. I'd love to see what you all could come up with for that technique!

Gorgeous card, Mom! My favorite technique is the polished stone background with the alcohol inks. So much fun, and no two are ever the same.

Beautiful card! My "favoritest" technique would have to be embossing resist, but a close second is paper piecing. I love Rubbernecker images...so glad your great blog is on the Rubbernecker list! ;0) Thanks for the chance!

I love embossing and also using water colors. I tend to use it a bit too much sometimes.

Hi Joan! Your Poinsettia is so pretty! I love how the petals curl up and that background paper you use is perfect! my favorite stamping technique is heat embossing--although it can be a little messy, you can do such cool things with it, like resist for example. Thanks for the chance to win some candy!

Kate Stockman said...

Your card is so pretty, I like to use my cuttlebug with the embossing folder. It makes a card look I spent a lot of time on it, Thanks for a chance at blog candy.

Wow, absolutely gorgeous! Beside using my CB for embossing, my fav technique (right now) is head embossing in gold. Of course, next week I'm sure it'll be something else.

Jennifer (SCS: jennifer-g) said...

Joan, I loooooooooooooove your card! As always! Those poinsettias are just gorgeous.

I love techniques!! It's hard to choose, but a really simple one I like to pull out sometimes is Poppin' Pastels -- using my Shimmery Chalks. Gotta have the bling!

Sue D said...

Beautiful card! I don't know if I have a stamping technique but I usually stamp and color with colored pencils and mineral spirits.
