Fun and Fabulous Techniques

  Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by today!  This week we are featuring a few fun and fabulous techniques you can use with your Stampin' Up! goodies  to step up your hand-stamped projects and give your creations a WOW factor.  We hope you find inspiration here and give one of these techniques a try this weekend!!

  First up is our guest designer Cindy Blekas with her "marker direct to stamp" technique - using markers on a large image like this allows you to have a variety of colors on a solid image stamp.  For more details about her project, please be sure to visit Cindy's blog post here.

  Next up we have this great grafitti-look birthday card perfect for your favorite Teen designed by Rachel Yurkanin using the "inked texturing" technique.  Make sure you check out her blog here to get all the details on how she created it!

  Guest designer Jennifer Rawlings used both a masking and watercoloring technique for her fantastic masculine card.  Find more information on her project by visiting her blog post here.

  Here is Karla's addition to this week's challenge. She took a technique and tweaked it a bit to make her card. Go to her blog to read up.

  And last but not least is my thank you card featuring the Batik technique - it takes heat embossing to a new level!  Please hop over to my blog post here for instructions on this fun technique.

  Thank you for visiting with us on this Fabulous Friday!  For those of you in the U.S. we hope you have a great Labor Day weekend and for everyone else, enjoy your weekend as well!!
