Technique Tuesday Crew Call

Several months ago I discovered Mynettes blog and entered one of  her challenge's.   One of the things that I really liked about her challenges is the fact that in order to participate I had to learn a new technique!  Her instructions are always well written and include lots of photos, making it fun and easy to learn something new.    I am answering the crew call that Mynette issued at the Technique Tuesday Blog...go here to check out her call :

I chose to try her very first technique entitled  "Stamped Punch Window".  It's a simple technique that produces a really outstanding result.  I chose to put a twist on it by stamping a whole image first, coloring it with my new Copic Markers ( which I got a STEAL on from  EBay !).  I then used a Spellbinders die to cut out my shape and dry embossed the whole stamped card front with a Spellbinders Embossing folder.  I added various colored rhinestones and added pop- dots to the backside.  I glued down the die cut onto hot pink cardstock and then placed the whited stamped/embossed negative image centered on top. 


Here is a close-up of the details.  

I really love this technique !  So much that I created one more variation of it!

This Kraft tag began with using a stencil and my Copics.  I colored in the leopard stencil with two shades of Copic turquoise ink and then used a Sizzix die and cut out a heart.  On a deep teal sheet of  Cardstock I heat embossed an A and then added dimensional's underneath the stenciled paper.  I set that on top and then added a piece of Rhinestone mesh below.  Believe it or not the rhinestone piece came off of a fancy pair if flip flops that fell apart!  Sometimes pack-ratting stuff does pays off!!!  A black satin bow on top covering the tags' hole and voila,  a fun gift tag to add to a card front or hang from a gift, wine bottle, jewelry box nob, the possibilities are many! 

Thanks for stopping by for a look!
