Growing Green Pedestal Pop-Up Card!

With this fun technique your card element will literally "jump" off the card when the recipient opens it!  Wow them every time they open this fun card!  This simple technique can be adapted to pop up different sized pieces, depending on the pedestal size!  In addition to making a bunch of these cards for your own card giving needs, this project is a great club, class, workshop, or open house make-n-take project.

Faux Linen/Brayer Card!

This month over at my Sisters in Stamping blog we're focusing on techniques.  Every Friday we are showcasing a different technique and this Friday it's techniques that use a brayer.  I rarely use my brayer, not because I don't like using it, I just forget!  I decided to do a faux linen technique.  With this technique, you use glossy card stock, stamp, sand (I used the sanding block from our Distressing Essentials kit), and then brayer.

It's hard to tell from the picture, but once all of that is done, the paper looks like linen.  It's very pretty in real life, and I also added some Basic Pearls to the greeting.
