These two cards are the ones I made as designed by my sister (top) and a niece (bottom). It's always fun to use their supplies and stamps and try a new technique or be reminded of one I haven't used for awhile. The top card is all about layering and tearing with the retired stamping up tearing tool. Punches make the top card a quick and easy.
The bottom card uses heat embossing with white powder on white cardstock, then sponging or daubing ink onto the embossed image. After you've sponged/daubed you wipe the white embossing with a tissue to clean it up. I made mine into a pretty fall birthday card!
