Technique Tuesday!

Here are the highlights from our September Technique Tuesday. I realized that I posted a picture of September's projects but no details. I will make it up to you right now!

Accordion Fold

This first card is an accordion fold and a lot of fun to create. You take a 4.25 x 11 piece of cardstock and score it at every 1 3/8 inch. Add your squares and you are done. You can find more info about where I got the idea here. A little further down on my blog posts.

Stamps: Under the Stars, Smarty Pants, Skeeter Wheel
Paper: Old Olive, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Water color crayons, blender pen, small oval punch, sticky tape

Rolling Marble Technique!
This technique makes you feel like a kid again. It can be messy but a lot of fun! I used Old Olive, Really Rust, and Pumpkin Pie reinkers in three different plastic stamping boxes. Add the marbles and roll the ink around to get the marbles good and covered. Add a piece of cardstock (I taped mine to the lid) and roll the marbles over the cardstock until you get the desired look. When done just rinse the boxes and marbles out in the sink and let dry!
Stamps: Sanded background and Holidays and Wishes

Paper: Old Olive, Naturals Ivory, Pumpkin Pie

Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate chip, Pumpkin Pie, Reinkers (Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust)

Dry Embossing
This was a lot of fun but I learned that the light table did no good on a dark piece of cardstock. I cased the idea for this card somewhere and added the dry embossing. It has to be one of my most favorite cards so far!
