Day 85 Super Sketchy Sunday

This is my take on the sketch over at 365 Card's. Sorry this photo not to great... I used my Tombo markers to color directly on the solid surface peacock stamp from the set T-3057 Bird Cage , then huffed on to moisten with my breath before stamping... this has such a soft look to it and it's such a quick and easy technique to try.
I also used my oval coluzzle template to cut part of the way around main image then my Kai detail scissors to cut around the peacock's tail.

Day 84 Recipe # 2

Today on 365 Card's
the challenge is to use this recipe
1 3x3 Card
1 Flower
1 Brad
1 Piece of ribbon
Stamp Sentiment

Well I must say I love to
emboss my white core
paper and lightly sand
for a beautiful effect...
So when I saw Chrissie's
beautiful doted swiss card,
I thought paisley cuddle bug...
I also had the perfect size brad
but the color was wrong so I
punched out a matching circle
glued to top of my brad & lightly sanded
edges... I used a new sentiment stamp from the
Magalouge. On the outside it says...You are
& inside it says... A blessing to me
V-290 Premium Wht. CS

Faux Stitching

This week I'm participating in a Blog Hop showcasing the Scor-Pal
If don't own one please check out all the great things you can do with it, I don't know how I ever got a long with out mine!
The technique I would like to share is called Faux Stitching
this is a great one to use on cards and scrapbook pages alike!

To create the look of stitching I simply used my Olfa Rotary Cutter with a scoring blade.

Make sure your paper is textured side down and you want to start with the blade in the channel leaving space at the top to roll your blade off your paper, next flip over and lightly sand to pop your faux stitches.
Finish card as desired.
I used the V-88 Red #2 white core paper
T-2990 Sweet Goodies
T-2754 Mini Occasions

You can view a tutorial for Faux Stitching here on Heather Scott's Blog .
Check out these Angel blogs below for more great Scor-pal projects.
