Friends With Flair Friday!!

Good Morning and Thank Goodness it's Friday!! We are very excited this weekend we are getting a new Van and will be picking it up on Saturday.. WOW cup holders.. I never had that even air conditioning... we are stepping up in the world. I am still never going to drive but to know that my husband is happy makes me a very happy girl.
It has been a treat to go look at different Vans all week long. He deserves something new.. and for us this is all new to have car payments...married nearly 23 years and never a car payment.. how strange is that!!

But putting Vans aside.. it is Friends with Flair Fridays.. this week I have been looking at some of the great SCS videos on you-tube. Beate has some amazing things to take my card making to the next level. I did these both using the JOY FOLD card.. I changed it up a bit to fit a larger image but I love the look of it.

The first card using the Striped wipe background video...I used some glossy paper and Tim Holtz Alcohol inks , I followed the directions with the baby wipe and applied my ink colours.. and with my Staz-On ink I inked up the images and this is what the card turned out to look , it was so easy and I love the this technique.. I will be trying this one alot on other cards.



Now this card I did the Joy Fold technique.. quite easy and love how it opens. Great Video Tutorial Beate.. you totally rock!!






Using all my Unity Stamps.. I just love how these different cards turned out. I will be watching more of the videos and hopefully be trying out a few techniques every week .. I am so excited to learn something new.. and if you want to check out the videos they are all here lots of great things to learn.

Now if you all go and check out what the other Fabulous Friends have done.. head on over to the Unity Blog.. it has a wonderful new look and even Angela has here own personal blog which I absolutely love. remember to look for that sneaky blinky.. leave lots of love . I am hoping to visit everyone this week seeing that my hubby is working all weekend.

Have a great weekend, get Crafty and enjoy every moment of the process!!

Hugs,

Angie
