Different techniques

Here are a couple pictures of cards that I have made for birthdays. Boy are there a lot of birthdays in October! I'm trying to keep up! I have one more to make, and then I should be ok.
The first picture is one that I stole the idea from Splitcoaststampers and modified it. I made it for my Grandmother who turned 88!!!! The technique on this card is paper piercing aroun the white paper.

The second picture is my cousin's card. He's turning 12, but I just love the Loads of Love stamp set! And the technique in this one is kool-aid mixed clear embossing powder which makes: scratch and sniff!!!! Thanks to Heather Casey for giving me that idea!

The third card I made is for my other cousin's birthday who is turning 14. The only stamping I did was the eraser on the end of a pencil to do the polka dots. I know it has ribbon, I'm just hoping that it's "manly" enough for a 14 year old! I love using chipboard. I made the letters myself, because I don't have letter stencils that large. That was fun, let me tell you.....

Happy stamping!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!
