April VSC: Favorite Technique

Hello, my lovelies!!!

It's been AGES since I've posted, or crafted for that matter! Oh, how I've missed stamping and getting inky, and all that goodness derivative of creativity!  But, alas, I'm back and this time to share my card for this month's "Favorite Technique" theme over on the V's Sweet Challenge blog! (:

I have many favorite techniques to pick just one favorite... but since I recently got TONS of new Lawn Fawn goodies, which I hadn't had a chance to play with until this weekend, I asked myself... "How can I show a favorite technique that will allow me to use absolutely ALL the new products I just purchased?" heheh (:  My mind was all over the place, because I just couldn't decide on which stamp set to use--I LOVE them all!!!  Lo and behold, what better super FUN technique than to paper piece?!  I was like a little kid in a candy store *grin*  So, I grabbed the oh-so-trendy #awesome stamp set and lawn cuts by LF, since I could paper piece, die cut and stamp the entire collection, using none other than some more yummy LF pattern papers (Let's Polka and Hello Sunshine)!! :D

I was going to just add a few sweet dots by V's Sweet Ideas and be done, but I felt something else was missing to make the whole card stand out... What better way to add a WOW factor than with Maya Roads metallic ribbon in gold from V's Sweet Ideas?!!  Yes, it was a match made in heaven! (;  For the finishing touches, I punched out two hearts with my Martha Stewart confetti hearts punch, then added shimmer with my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen marker (clear).  I also wanted to trap all that pretty shimmer by covering the birdie and the hearts in glossy accents.

This card is a little more busy (because of the many different patterns) than I like my cards to be (I'm more of a CAS style kind of girl), but I just couldn't help myself with so much cuteness surrounding me! LOL heheh (:  Anyway, I hope my card puts a smile on your face...  And please, swing by the V's Sweet Challenge blog to check out the gorgeous creations my teammies have come up with.  They have totally outdone themselves with this one--you won't want to miss it!!!

Have a great day and may the LORD richly bless!! 'Til next time!!! XOXO
