A few projects

I had a FUNShop! on Sunday and I did a card using the Dryer sheet Technique as well as a gift card. The gift card idea came from a video by Jennifer McGuire that was posted on one of my Yahoo Groups. Gotta love those groups for awesome ideas!

Here is the gift card. I used the Willoughby Collection from The Angel Company. I'm so loving this paper! I seem to be using it on many different creations lately. The colors are just beautiful and perfect for male or female recipients.

And here is the inside of the card:

I left everything blank on the inside so I can add a special note/letter or photo to it. It's a 4x4 size so a photo would look really good on the inside or back cover. Wouldn't this be great for birthdays too! It's very easy especially using my Scor-Pal. That is one of the best tools EV-ER! I use it all the time. Not just for cards but tons of other projects as well!

Here is the Christmas Card using the dryer sheet technique. It's kind of hard to tell but there is a dryer sheet adhered over the penguin image and glitter is rubbed in. It has a huge sparkle effect! On the inside we stamped Happy Holidays using L'Amore Red Palette Pad.
I colored the penguin with markers (I found the brighter the image the better!). The ladies were really pleased and can't wait for our next get together in 3 weeks.

Thanks for looking! If you have any questions, just ask!

All supplies used were from The Angel Company. Interested in purchasing? Just contact me.

Super!! You've almost convinced me to try the Willoughby-almost. I just can't tell if I'd like it or not.
Love the penguin..hehehe!

super cute ideas and that's the smoothest dryer sheet that I've seen - awesome! Sounds like a great funshop!

So let me see if I got this right,... you color in the stamped image and then glue a dryer sheet on top of it and rub the dryer sheet with glitter? Is that right?

It looks really cute!

yep! The dryer sheet needs to be used! I ran the image through my xyron the "wrong" way - I wanted the sticky part to be on the image not the back of it. Stretch the dryer sheet over the image, trim off excess and rub in glitter. That's it :)
