New Technique(s)

I seem to be on a cardmaking roll at the moment - I've made more cards this year (over 40) than I have in the last 4 years.

I've volunteered to do this month's challenge on Crafts by Carolyn and it's to make a project using a new technique

Here's mine, which actually includes 2 new techniques for me. The first is an Easel Card, from a tutorial I found here and a quilted patterned paper die cut, inspired from here

I have to say, next time I would stagger the 2nd line of squares to soften it a little, it looked perfect on Carole's card, but hers was more of a rectangular shape.

Hope you can join in with my challenge

Clearly Besotted Stamps Challenge - Anything Goes

Stephanie's challenge at Simply Besotted Stamps this month is 'Anything Goes'

I was lucky enough to be able to get the Text Me stamps and dies before they sold out and here's the first card I've made with them

Off to have a play with Blogger, it's ages since I last blogged and it looks like I need to update my background as well as a few more things
