New Techniques at Shopping Our Stash

We have a FUN challenge for everyone over at Shopping Our Stash beginning today!  Our theme for the challenge is to use a new technique you've never done before - just remember to use up some of your stash while doing it.  Check out our blog for all the details and see the fabulous inspiration from the DT!

I'm probably not only technology challenged - but also new technique challenged as well! LOL!  But, in getting in the spirit of this new technique stuff, I decide to try the Baby Wipe technique.  If you've never done it before (like me) you can find the instructions on Split Coast Stampers under the Resource section.


I used a CTMH image (Flutter) that had never seen ink before and to get the colors on this, used some pink, green, and blue re-inkers.  The sentiment is Loving Thoughts from SU.  I also used an embossing folder that I've had for a while but never used.   A CAS card but like the way that dragonfly looks with the different colors.

Thanks for stopping by.........and head on over to Shopping Our Stash and enter our challenge.

oh wow, that is ♥BEAUTIFUL♥! i love the almost marble-y effect of the soft pastel colors blending in the dragonfly image! holy wow, i think i will need to learn ANOTHER technique!!! :)

ps: you are one of my very favorite C&S cardmakers... your cards are amazingly "simple" in the sense of being lovely uncluttered--but never PLAIN! ♥

That dragonfly stamp is perfect for this technique! I love that EF and bet you'll be using it again soon. It's gorgeous! Love the CASness of this card. So pretty!

WOW! I love everything about this one. The gingham ribbon, the embossed background, the matting, the multi-colors on the dragonfly... mostly I love the CAS. I'm going to have to check out that technique since I've never even heard of it. :-D
