Perfect Sentiment Challenge #86 - Favorite Technique

We're back! After a month of summer "vacation," our design team at The Perfect Sentiment Challenge is ready to inspire you again and be inspired by your creations!  Our challenge this week should be easy for everyone - show and tell us your favorite technique.
CREATE A CARD FOR THE OCCASION OF YOUR CHOICE USING YOUR FAVORITE TECHNIQUE. A TECHNIQUE CAN BE ANYTHING FROM HEAT EMBOSSING, DRY EMBOSSING, FUSSY CUTTING, SEWING, PAPER PIERCING, EMBOSS RESIST AND SO FORTH. PLEASE INCLUDE WHAT TECHNIQUE YOU USED.  DON'T FORGET YOUR SENTIMENT ON THE FRONT.

Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish, who will award one lucky winner 5 free digis of their choice!

 
Robyn';s Fetish Digital Stamps and More

My favorite technique is one I enjoy using a lot: USING DIE CUTS.  I love using Spellbinders and Cricut die cuts. They make a great mats for images and sentiments. Today I'm also showing you a Cricut Artbooking background design using the key OVERLAY. This cartridge has a great OVERLAY that's perfect for Back to School projects.  Check it out:


I used the Robyn's Fetish digi called "Reading Is Fun." I got the sentiment acrylic stamp, my favorite for teachers, from My Favorite Things. The set was called "Clearly Sentimental about Teaching." The papers are all from Close To My Heart. The Cranberry overlay is on a Scholastic paper showing vintage library cards--so appropriate for a reading image! The image is colored with Copic markers and popped up on two circular images cut from Cricut Artiste using papers from the new Sarita paper pack.
