Fractured Card

 This technique seems to be taking Pinterest as well the internet by storm.  It is called Fractured Card Technique - or Faux Shutter Technique.  It is fun - easy - all you really have to do is figure what Designer Paper and Image you are going to use.  

We made this one at our Cuppa and a Card get together two weeks ago - and I am thinking it will make some fun fall and winter cards.  Our image in the middle was on a 2" white square.  The strips are 1/4 inch.  You can use about any white base - as long as it has straight edges.  I am going to have fun this weekend trying different punches and dies that I have with straight edges.

Christmas Stamp a Stack

 A couple of weeks ago we had a "Christmas Stamp a Stack" at a dear friend, and fellow SU demonstrator.  She has this every year - usually in July but this year it was in August.  There were 12 crafty, fun, and great, girls present.  Ruth made 2 different soups and the rest of us brought all kinds of goodies from sausage bites to homemade cheese cake to Cowboy Caviar. Besides 12 cards we all went home with a full tummy.  Didn't eat much supper that night.  

We made 3 cards of 4 different designs - Ruth had everything cut, ink and stamps, embellishments on the table - we just had to really stamp and put together.  

Her cute dog Heidi was allowed to stay in the room and keep us company - and Ruth said Heidi she was worn out when everyone left.  

The dove was my favorite - and probably the easiest, stamp with versamark and gold heat embossed.

Early Christmas Cards

 Went to one of Diane Lanfer's classes a couple of week ago - and we made 3 beautiful Christmas cards.  Plus I got to see some familiar faces and meet new ones as well.  Donna T. lets me share her mom with her and she was there - so happy to get to see her.  What a sweet lady.  

Three beautiful Christmas cards ready to go.  Next week I will share the Christmas cards we made at a dear friends annual Christmas stamp camp.
