Busy Busy Day

Okay back from supper had Chicken Parmigiana and I am so stuffed I have done 3 cards today the first is from Cuttlebug Challenges and it is a tutorial Cassie did today called Embossing Fun Foam in your bug what a fun idea Cassie be sure and check out her lovely card Cassie used Shimmers on her embossing which I don't have yet so I did some morphing I did a Cuttlebug Smoosh technique and than added Dazzling Diamonds to the pumpkins on the foam the only stamped used was SU©Cute and Curly along with the punch to match
Next up is a technique Terri Moore did on her blog called Faux Silk with a Twist check out Terri's Video on this one she also shows you how to make your own glimmer mist. I sprayed my tissue paper with a purple Glimmer Mist than made my own blue using the water 6 drops of SU Pacific Point re-inkers and a dab of Duo Blue/Green Pearl X loved the outcome of this I stamped 2 types of flowers the large one is from Autumn Leaves flowers used Martha Stewart markers than added dazzling diamonds large pearl is from Club Scrap smaller flower is stamped using SU set Fabulous Flowers green leaves cut out on my cricut than ran through the cuttlebug with the Swiss dot folder designer tag is another stamping up set.

Last one this evening this technique is called Faux Felt and is a Technique Junkies tech if you would like to see more artwork from this group and find out how you can become a Junkie check it out HERE . I used 2 stamps on this card SU©Curvy Verve's and Stampabilities Hearts and Vines, Martha Stewart Lace border punch SU green organdy ribbon
