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.
Today's challenge on 365 Card's features coffee as the source of inspiration. I made this card for my daughter Rayna who absolutely lives on the stuff!!! I used a TAC hostess set that you can earn by hosting a party... Ask me how?? TB-2942 The Morning Buzz This card looks much better in real life my scanner washed out the warm browns & distressing...
Finally caught up with the challenges for May on 365 Card's. No stamping on this card the sentiment is handwritten and I used my Cricut...the labels are cut from SB & the cute little bird is from my WC cart. I'm really digg'in the new embellishment G-708 Elizabeth Buttons & Blossoms from the new Magalogue!
Another April challenge card at 365 Card's. Make a card using 8 flowers.. I made this using my Cricut & WIMG cartridge. I also used this stamp set T-2674 Sweet Skunks for the cute little bee... I'm going to send this one to my wonderful daughter for Mother's day she happens to loves tulips.
Still trying to catch up on April challenges at 365 Card's. This is a Birthday card for my grand daughter who is turning three this month. I used. T-2826 Doodle Bugs T-2153 Squiggle Lady Bugs V-841 Miss Moxie B-319 Miss Moxie CS

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.
