The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Favorite Technique


The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge theme is "Favorite Technique."

For my technique I chose to create a card using alcohol inks and Yupo Paper.  I applied the ink to the Yupo using a foam brush rather than using the AI blending tool and felt application.  Using the foam brush I had a bit more control for creating the diagonal pattern.  I adhered the stitched die cut inked Yupo to a crumb cake card base.  Used CheeryLynn Designs Sunflower to die cut the flower and CheeryLynn Designs Fanciful Flourish vine.  Embellished the vine wih a ladybug button.

We hope you'll share your favorite technique with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Birds, Bees, Butterflies


The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge theme is "Birds, Bees, Butterflies...use one or all three."

For my card, I created a pop out panel card.  The cardstock and designer paper, and sentiment and honeycomb die are from the July 2019 Bee Yourself Simon Says Stamp card kit.  The bird, bee, and butterfly are from Stampin Up Backyard Basics stamp set and matching dies.  Images colored using Copic markers then layered onto Sizzix Dotted Square die cuts.  Embellished with a triple loop black/white gingham bow.

We hope you'll share your "birds, bees, butterflies using one or all three" with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters.
