I chose cards that I especially love and that represent four different types of techniques!

I made this card for the Craft-a-Flower Peruvian Lily hop. It features using washi tape, 3D embossing, and gold ink for embellishment. Click HERE for the complete how-to’s!!!

The second card I am sharing was a part of the Washi Tape Blog Hop, and features one of my very favorite techniques — using 3D Embossing Folders with washi. It is so easy and so quick, but SO impressive!

Check out my YouTube Tutorial for a complete walkthrough of this process!

For my 3rd card, I chose my entry for the Build-a-Flower Laelia Blog Hop. I chose the colors to replicate a photo I found of a Laelia, and I just love the way it turned out!

My final card was a part of the Build-a-Flower Tree Peony Blog Hop. I mixed the peony with the Hill Blossoms coloring stencil and the organic linen 3D Embossing folder.

I love these soft colors and the “I Care” sentiment on this card. Click HERE for the complete details!!!

    It’s so nice to see you on this blog hop. I think I like your second card the best. The Washi and embossed card. Your the best.

  2. Mary Ellen Nawn

    Love all 4, but can’t decide which I like best. Between 2 and 3, I think. Love the techniques and how you mix them!

    Beautiful cards! Love the washi tape on the vase on the first card.Thanks for sharing your favorites. Happy New Year!

    My favorite is the blue washi with the embossing folder. I don’t recall seeing the original blog hop that you made it for. It is very pretty!
