Inspired by Jill

So, my good friend (and stamping enabler) Jill sent us a really cool Christmas card last year! She used a Z Fold, but the center with the image on it also folds out so you have a small place to write (or stamp!) a little sentiment.

Stamps: SU Always & Friendship Blooms
Ink: SU Close to Cocoa & Pretty in Pink, markers in Pretty in Pink & Mellow Moss
Paper: SU Berry Bliss, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Heidi Swap rhinestone flowers, Stickles

Stamps: SU Garden Whimsy
Paper: SU Petals & Paisley, PTI White, SU Pretty in Pink & Tempting Turquoise
Ink: SU Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Paper Crafts pink flower rhinestones, SU Dazzling Diamonds
Technique: Dryer Sheet, Cuttlebug Dry Embossed
I ran the striped paper through the Cuttlebug to get some dimension. I used the Distressed Stripes folder as to not go overboard with differing designs.
This card also used the dryer sheet technique I read about in the Sept 2008 issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts. It is so easy to do! You take your image, put it face down (image side) on a Zyron machine, roll it out, and place a used dryer sheet on the sticky part. Then, pour some dazzling diamonds on top for a little bling! Presto! It looks cool and smells pretty! :)
And, last but certainly not least, I used my Score-Pal for these cards. I love this tool! It is one of my favorites for sure! And, by the way, Jill is the one who inspired me to buy it!

Really cute!! Need to try that. I love my Scor Pal to use it every time I stamp, the most used tool in my craft room other than my hands.
