Peek-a-Boo Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Technique Blog Hop!

This month, the technique (or feature) is Peek-a-Boo projects. 

You should have arrived here from Katy Taylor's blog

I decided to create three cards for this hop - two are Christmas cards because I really have to get started on those and the third is just for fun. The Multi Square Window and Multi Circle Window Thin Cuts are perfect for the peek-a-boo idea.  

The first Christmas card is a "multi-national" one... I coloured the elves in various skin tones. I used just three images from the Jolly Characters stamp set - the reindeer and the two elves (male and female). They were rotated in all directions and coloured using the Tri-Blend markers. I added some Stickles to the elf hats and also brushed sections with the Clear Shimmer Brush although that isn't noticeable in the photo.

The second Christmas card is much the same - just using more of the stamp images from the same set. Stickles were added to various images. Both of these cards were framed using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. 

The last card is a multi square shaker card. I added Gold Confetti Stars and Gold Loose Sequins only to the windows where I used patterned paper. The sunflowers and leaves were stamped and coloured. I added a sentiment along with a piece of Espresso cardstock underneath. A few gold sequins were placed around the sentiment. 

I hope you enjoyed my cards.
