Thank You Cards

Here is a change from the Christmas Cards that I have been displaying for the past couple of weeks on my blog.

I created  Thank You cards for a couple of my customers and used a combination of the Gently Falling and French Foliage stamp sets.  Love, Love these sets.  

All the leaves and the acorn are embossed with various embossing powders and then sponged and crinkled. The technique is called Emboss Resist.

I hope they look a little real.  

The Apothecary Label is stamped using the verbiage and water spot stamps from the French Foliage stamp set and the DSP is given some texture with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder.  Texturizing DSP seems to bring out the best in the papers.

Tuesday Tips and Techniques has been missing over the past several weeks.  It's been a little hectic in my life lately and hope to get back on track next Tuesday with some great techniques.
