I have been missing in action the last week or 2 but am feeling up to doing a little today. While the going is good, I thought I would also try a little post. It is also a challenge from our FB Page to do an extra blog this week. Well, seeing as though I set the challenge, I felt I had to play along.
As I don’t have a card created (still not creating), I thought I would start sharing some of our cards we have created for our Technique Treats – #1 Collection. In saying that I will only be sharing 1 or 2 from each collection. You are still able to purchase the tutorials for the posted card along with the other cards in the collection by heading over to the “Technique Treats” Page.
My first card is one we did way back in February 2016 when the 2016 Occasions Catalogue come out. It has been created using the lovely “Rose Wonder” Stamp Set along with the coordinating “Rose Garden” Framelits. The technique is “Re-Inkers” – perfect for getting more use from your Re-Inkers.
I also used the Layering Squares Framelits along with the gorgeous Neutrals Paper Stack – Basic Black which pops the Flower.
Until next time, Enjoy!
Don’t forget when purchasing Online, to use January’s Host Code & receive a free gift in the mail.
I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest some time ago & thought it would be great to create a male card using the same colours. In fact, I’m not sure if they are the same colours as I’ve used Crumb Cake, Soft Suede & Tempting Turquoise on my card. I also used the sentiment from “Rose Wonder“. Thank you so much for your inspiration.
My uncle who is 88, had been in hospital a couple of weeks ago & as I am not a fan of hospitals, didn’t get to visit, so I thought I would create a card for when he got home. I didn’t want trees, etc on the card, I wanted to go for something entirely different, which is probably why this card stick in my head. Anyhow, it is good to be a little different!

About a month ago at our Technique Class we had a bit of a play with the Decorative Masks by SU!.
To continue with the theme of these Masks, I decided to have a bit of a play & create my own Stencil by using the Butterfly from the Bold Butterfly Framelits & the Window Sheets. Just another way to get another use from your Dies/Framelits.

My card today was created for the lovely Mary who had her birthday last month. I wanted to use very soft colours for her card but sort of had nothing planned so I went for Pink Pirouette, Whisper White & my Colour Coach.
I did start out using the “Botanical Builder” Dies to create my card but then changed my mind as I started the card.
I also wanted to used the Happy Patterns Decorative Mask on her card. We had done a Technique Class the other day showcasing the Masks & they loved it! So of course I had to match it up with the corresponding “Elegant Dots” Embossing Folder.
The flowers were coloured with my Blender Pen & Pink Pirouette Ink but was a bit “wishy washy” so I decided to add a little of Watermelon Wonder Ink & they just popped. I finished them off by adding Clear Wink of Stella.
I sure hope you like the card today. Don’t forget to click on the link above the photo to grab your free tutorial to create your own card.
Yes, all the tutorials do have codes for the items I have used as well as the measurements.
