Blogger's Challenge #94: Technique


Our challenge was to use a technique to create our card. Well, the latest issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter was released on April 1 and I'm finally trying one of the fabulous techniques out. The technique is called Cuttlebug Stamps but I used all Stampin' Up supplies to complete the technique and I really like the results!

The technique called for Cuttlebug folders and a Cuttlebug. I simply replaced those items with my Big Shot and the Texturz Plates. I used the Paisley plate and Lovely Lilac ink. When I first began stamping EVERYTHING was Lovely Lilac. I don't use it as much but it's still a GREAT color! This card is for one of my students who is having her adenoids and tonsils out next week.

Make sure to check out what techniques the other BC members tried out and play along with us, too! If you would like more information about this technique and would like to subscribe to the Technique Junkie Newsletter, click HERE or click on the logo in my sidebar.
