Technique Tuesday!

Here are this month and last month's technique Tuesday Cards!
I know, I know I am slacking...I am trying to do better on the blogging front! :-) I am bad about taking pictures of my own kid so you see where the cards fall...way behind!!! :-)

December's Cards!

Faux Rimmed Tag!

I saw this guy on a blog I believe and can't seem to figure out where. The original card had a real metal tag hanging on it. I thought I would use SCS's tutorial to make a faux metal tag! How cute is this and super simple!!

Stamps: Under the Stars, Family Phrases, and Polka Dot Background
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, Versamark
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Silver, Whisper White, Old Olive
Accessories: 2 way glue, 1 1/4" circle, 1 3/8 circle, Alpine Ribbon, Paper piercer, linen thread, hole punch, water color crayons, blender pens

The hearts were created using the Happy Heart Day Butterfly stamp...

Ribbon Weaving
This is yet another card that I saw that "FORCED" me to buy something else. I got the idea from Stephanie Hargis. I loved the layout I saw for this card as well as the paper and ribbon. I bought the paper and ribbon just to make this card. (Do you sense a destructive pattern growing?) I decided to add my own touch with the ribbon weaving technique.

Stamps: Say it with Scallops
Ink: Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Hawaiian Papaya, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: Tangerine Tango ribbon, Chocolate chip ribbon, Scallop Square punch, glue dots

Faux Alligator Skin
I got the idea for this guy from Jamie Hurley
This was a messy but fun technique. I had embossing powder all over my counter! :-)

Stamps: Wild About You
Paper: Green Galore, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black, Green Galore
Accessories: Basic Black Ribbon, ticket punch, bone folder, heat gun, clear embossing powder
