I'm all ready for next month's technique class. Trying to keep ahead of the game.
This first card uses cardstock vellum for the birthday hats. I stamped the image first, but turned the cardstock over to do the technique. Using the stylus attachment for the Take your Pick tool, I gently debossed the cardstock so that it was embossed on the right side. You have to do this technique on a cushioned surface so I used our Stampin' Pierce Mat. This "Debossing on Vellum" technique has to be done carefully so you don't tear the vellum cardstock. Once the hats were debossed, I coloured them with co ordinating Stampin' Write Markers, and cut them out with snips.
The hats and the greeting for this card come from the new Occasions Catalogue in the Birthday Cheer set. I've also added a few of the Gingham Gala adhesive-backed Sequins into the mix of the confetti.
Don't forget that SALE-A-BRATION is on right now. Assuming you have white and coloured cardstock, envelopes and ink, you can purchase the rest of the supplies you need for this card and be able to select one of the products out of the Sale-a-bration brochure.

For the second card, I simply stamped our clear blocks with ink over the background. Using different sizes gives the background more interest. Again, it's a good idea to use the Stampin' Pierce Mat when doing this technique so you get a good imprint with the block.
Hope you're having a great day.
Thanks for stopping by,
