The Triple Embossing Technique, from the June/July 2013 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter, is the current Technique of the Week! I intended on posting this on Monday, but life got in the way!
I love this easy technique. The combination of textures is wonderful! I chose to change mine up a bit -- using cardstock instead of Designer Paper. I colored the individual areas with a combination of ink and chalks to highlight the embossed areas. The stamp is from Stampin' Up!
Hope you are playing along with us this week!
This is the post that was supposed to happen on Monday, when I announced the Technique of the week. Well, now it is Thursday, and although I wasn't able to post Jackie Kalchert announced the technique for me on the Design Team blog. After two consecutive weeks of busy trade shows, I haven't had much of a chance to create! I did set some time away today, though, since I was pining for stamp therapy. The Stencil Collage card (June/July 2013) above is the result of my endeavors.
I used a background collage stamp from Stamp Out Cute and a sentiment from Stampin' Up!, along with the mesh stencil from Club Scrap. (Sorry that there are not any links, I am posting from my iPad and haven't yet figured that out!) I stamped, inked and cut out extra butterflies from the main image, too, but they are hard to see from the picture. Their wings were pinched up for dimension.
I hope you have had fun with the Technique this week, and love to see all the posts on the ergo up. If you haven't tried it yet - DO! Simple and easy and lovely. It doesn't get better than that!
Today is the monthly Club Scrap Blog Hop, and I am glad you are here! Today we are celebrating the June Cape Cod kit, and I have two projects to share with you! If you started on the Club Scrap Creates Blog
, you are in the right place. If not, keep in mind that you can access the whole list of hoppers from there at any time.
My first card uses is a Curved Fold card from the Move It CD (which was released in March).
I decided to cut into the 12"x 12" paper to use the 10" lighthouse for the focal image. I loved cutting out and stamping the lighthouse images - it took me back to the many, many times that I vacationed on the Cape. If you are familiar with the geography, my in-laws had a house in Chatham (if you are not familiar, it is on the elbow of the Cape). The lighthouse images have particular meaning for me, because the most well-known area on the Cape is the Chatham light.
The second card I made for the hop is also from the Move It CD -- it is an Inside Out Card.
The images were colored with Pastel Chalk Pencils. I used the Cape Cod Stencil to add a textural feel to the inside, and I used the netting and charm embellishments on the outside of the card.
I hope you have enjoyed the artwork today! Time to visit Julie Heyer -- The Cape Cod Scrapper.
You just know she has something wonderful in store for you.
One last thing. If you would like to enter the drawing for a Move It CD

Happy National Scrapbook Day! Today I am happy to be part of the Club Scrap Blog Hop celebrating the day. If you started at the Club Scrap Blog
, you are in the right place. If at any time you "get stuck" in the hop, go back to the Club Scrap blog for the next link, since they are all listed there.
Today I decided to create this large tag book from the 3D and Fun Folds CD
. I decided to use the Up, Up and Away kit from Club Scrap to make this, um, uplifting tag book.
This is not just a cool little book, but it also makes a great mini album. Hope you enjoyed it!
Your next stop on the hop is Julie Heyer
. Enjoy her beautiful work!
