WOW 2 posts in less than a week!!!

Yep here I am chronicling my playtime once again.  I got a chance to play with some of the techniques from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter.  Because I only sent out 1, count 'em, 1 Christmas card, I decided to create "winter" cards.  The first technique I tried was the online extra called Nip and Tuck.  I love the technique but had some trouble creating it (as you can see in the photo) but I really love the design of the card. 

Boy, the colors look really washed out but irl it is very sparkly.  For the sentiment, I used Rangers sticky embossing powder and glitter and the buttons are also sparkly.
My next card uses the Inked Shadows technique.  I love this technique!!!  Though you can't tell in the photo, the snowflakes are actually the negative images of dies I arranged and then cut out of my card front.  I really love how it turned out.
Ok, because this is my family's week before Christmas, I have some homemade presents to complete.  I have been a sewing fool!!!
