Technique time! I also did a video (see below). I'm calling this technique "granite/marble". It's done with window sheets or transparencies. Nice guy card. The list of supplies is shown below the video.
A few of my friends and I got together for a Stamp-a-Stack (8 cards). We had a blast! This is one of the cards we made. Isn't the chick the cutest thing!!!!
The colors are Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Tangelo Twist, and Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper. The little bow is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits™ Dies. Of course the dies have much more to them. The body is from the 2" circle punch, the wings are from the bird punch, and the feet and hair are from the Boho Blossom punch. the beak is cut freehand.
“Since Blendabilities are no longer
available as a Sale-A-Bration redemption item, we anticipate that the
demand on other Sale-A-Bration items will be higher than forecasted. For
that reason, all Sale-A-Bration items (with the exception of stamps)
will be available “while supplies last.” To help alleviate any
inconvenience this may cause, we’ve made more items available to redeem
for free during these last few weeks of Sale-A-Bration”

Happy Saturday! The ColorBox Chalk Ink and refills are really cool on black paper. The images were stamped in white craft using the Sale-a-bration Big Day Stamp Set. Then I colored the cake and birthday using a blender pen and just a drop of Aquamarine reinker. It's a bit transparent, so it really does look like chalk.
The colors are Black, Whisper White, and Bermuda Bay.
Happy Birthday to one of my friends, Mary. She is a very sweet, special lady!
The colors are Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy (embossed using the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder), Tangelo Twist, Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper. The stamp set is One Tag Fits All.

I'll be so sad when this Lotus Blossom is no longer available after Sale-A-Bration! It is such a pretty stamp.
Using the Sale-A-Bration Best Year Ever Designer series paper I was able to create two different looks with the same layout. The top card colors are Soft Sky, Black, Best Year Ever DSP, and Whisper White. The flower and black frame are cut out using the Deco Labels Framelit. The bottom card is made using Crisp Cantaloupe. I colors the small pearls on each card with the Soft Sky and Calypso Coral Blendabilities. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.

I've had requests to make more masculine cards, and this one turned out nicely (if I do say myself)....We made the starred background in our technique club, and I'm calling the technique called stamped resist paper.
Here's a video of the technique ....
Here are the dimensions:
Bermuda Bay - 8-1/2" x 5-1/2
Basic Black - 4-1/4" x 2-1/4" and 2-3/4" x 1-3/4"
Irresistibly Yours specialty designer series paper 4" x 2"
If you've looked through the Occasions Catalog you might have seen a card very similar ... yep, I CASED this from the catalog (check out page 18). The colors are Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Hello Honey and Wild Wasabi. Stamp set is Painted Petals.
I'm really lovin' the Irresistibly Yours specialty designer series paper in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. This white paper with a glossy white pattern is perfect for coloring using a variety of techniques—coloring reveals the pattern. Paired with Painted Petals stamp set, it just creates a pretty and simple card.
