I am a subscribing member (and fan) of a group called Technique Junkies. This group was founded by Pat Huntoon and is comprised of a group of paper craft artists (turbo designers) who devise new and different techniques for various products. I am always in awe of the techniques the turbo designers devise and, quite frankly, amazed that they invent so many fabulous new and different techniques--these ladies are truly amazing and inspiring. As a subscribing member of the Technique Junkies, I receive a magazine quality newsletter every other month, on-line access to the techniques (which includes an on-line bonus technique), and on-line access to the technique gallery. I also have the opportunity to purchase the entire year's techniques on CD (and, of course, I have!).
One of this month's techniques was called Brayered Brilliance, examples of which I have included below. I really like the perception of depth in this technique. The stamps I used for the first card are from the set Touch of Nature by Stampin' Up!. After stamping the verse, it was cut out and embossed using a large oval Nestabilities die and layered onto a piece of card stock which was cut using a small scalloped oval Nestabilities die.
The stamps used on the second card are from the stamp sets Wonderful Wings and God's Way, both by Stampin' Up!. The verse was stamped then cut and embossed using the Labels One Nestabilities die, then layered onto another piece of card stock that was cut and embossed with the same Labels One Nestabilities die.
Thanks for stopping by!
