NEW (to me) Technique



Happy Hump Day All!

While visiting crafting friends blog yesterday, I spotted this awesome technique over on Donna Phelan's blog (Crafting by the Seashore).  She was kind enough to share the VIDEO where she learned the technique and she also shared her own personal HACK at the end of her post (such a clever crafter!).  Be sure to check it out ... I haven't tried the hack yet (ran out of time), but will be playing with this technique more over the next few days so 'beware' lol.  

I used a Hero Arts stamp that I purchased a few years back and as stated above, I went with the 'Stamp it Twice' technique as shown in the video.  I used a Sue Wilson Lattice die set a PinkFresh sentiment panel.  Faux stitching was done around the outer edge to tie in with the stitching on the lattice die.

 I will add a birthday sentiment on the inside of my card but thought it would be nice to finish off the inside with a couple single flowers from the same set.  I added stems and a touch of color.

Earlier in the week I played along with a black & white themed challenge over on the Cupcake Inspiration blog and think I'll share today's card also. 



Thanks again to Donna for sharing this fun technique!  I can't wait to create a few more ... maybe in technicolor next time!  LOL   Go ahead, watch the video and give it a whirl ... you'll be hooked too!
