I love this set! I think I am hooked on the resist tech. I find that it is better to stamp the Angel in Versamark then the black, then emboss with clear. If you miss this step when you go over the image with the versa marker the black tends to blead. the first color that I rubbed on was soft sky, then pacific point and then night of navy around the edges.
I love the look of black with red, I also made this same card with tempting turquoise instead of red and that was really nice also.
I stamped the background with white craft ink and the tres chic stamp. Then I stamped the flowers with versa mark and embossed with heat n stick. I then added the red chunky glitter and reheated the flowers, this keeps the glitter more secure.
This is my first attempt with this set. I wanted to do a card with no layering or ribbon. I started with white CS then I embossed with crystal clear. I then rubbed streaks of pink pirouette and pretty in pink across the CS. I punch two holes with my circle punches and then stamped some images with Chocolate chip.
I have to be honest, I bought the tea because I loved the design and thought it would make a great card.
I love the new SU colors! I used Tangerine tango and pacific point on this card. I first stamped, with versamark on the white CS then embossed with crystal effects. Then I rubbed river rock with a sponge over the whole card. Then I rubbed Tangerine Tango along the bottom.

I made this card using the "Zindorf technique" I know she didn't create the technique but she sure has inspired me with amazing detailed posts. Check out her blog, it is a must, there is a link in the bottom right corner.
Stamp set: winter post
colors: sky blue, Not quite navy and SU markers.
Accessories: Big shot and snowflake die, also versa marker and crystal clear embossing powder. I also used the versa marker here and there on the snow and then sprinkled with iridescent ice. The snow flakes also have iridescent ice on them as well.
