Today's cards are in celebration of the Annual Technique Junkie CD sale - all ANNUAL CDs are just $10.00 plus postage! This is a huge savings and it is a great way to catch up with techniques from previous issues. Each of the CDs has between 70 and 100 tutorials on them, each in step-by-step, pictorial format. Information about each CD, with a list of what is on each and a link to order, is HERE: http://www. techniquejunkies.com/cd-sale-612.html.
The CD I am featuring is CD7. I had a hard time choosing just two techniques, so I ended up creating three cards for you today - two from the June 2009 issue and one from CD7's bonus techniques. Each CD has 10 bonus techniques on them that are only found on the CD.
For my first card, I tried the Faux Iris Folding technique (June 2009 issue). I've never done any iris folding of any kind, and I'm so glad I tried this. It was so quick and easy and fun! Now I'm hooked and I want to make some more! (Stamp by Penny Black.)
My second card shows off the awesome Starry Nights technique, a Bonus technique ONLY found on CD #7. You won't find the directions for this anywhere else. I am in love with this technique. You can see the shimmer in the close-up picture. (Stamp by Stampscapes.)
My third card was an experiment in fun. When I was looking at the Van Gogh technique (June 2009 issue), my fingers were just itching to try it out. I had a blast playing with this technique! (Stamps by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.)
I hope you've enjoyed the artwork I've shared with you today! There's still more artwork to drool over, so please head on over to Jackie's blog to see what she's created. Just in case you get lost, I've included the complete list of stops for today's blog hop below. Enjoy!!
