Faux Seersucker Card

When I was offering the 20 technique pages as blog candy last week I had asked two questions of those entering. One was to tell me their favorite technique of the ones I posted and the other was to tell me another favorite of theirs I did not have listed. Of all the ones mentioned I knew and have them on my list to make but one. Faux Seersucker!!!

Upon looking at it I figured it out and Vickie D. emailed me with her instructions. They were pretty much like the ones I had written up for the technique book! And today I had time to give it a try. I thought I'd play with the pinks today!!! I used Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirouette. I did use Regal Rose to color in the flowers on the "Fast Flowers" I wheeled on the white card stock. The flower pot and words are from the "Fun and Fast Notes" set.

I also played with the new "Top Note Bigz Die." It was fun layering it because the die is also perforated so once you get it cut out you just take your snips and cut along the perforated line. Then you cut out another one for the layer. SO easy and SO fun!!! Thank you Sue for letting me watch over your die cut while you were away for the weekend!!! You just never know what these things do in your workroom while you are gone!! It's best to let someone tend to them for you!! LOL

I cut out a few more projects to play with too and I will be ordering one of my own!!!

It's such a soft looking card.

Tomorrow I will post the instructions and the technique page!!!

I just love all your techniques that you show. I'm going to be starting a stamp group showing different techniques each month. I'm going to put them on a ring so they can keep them as a guide. Your blog has been very helpful. Thanks so much for sharing! Kristi

This is beautiful, I have never seen this before. So did you purchase the Big Kick? I have the regular Sizzix how do they compare? I do know that you can't use the Big dies in them.
