But what is the technique you ask? The Fossil Stone technique from the April 2006 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. Diana Enns and I challenge each other to trying a new technique each week, so pop over to leave her some love on her Herringbone technique post.
My Fossil Stone technique is behind the I Brake for Stamps butterfly. The background was smudged with ink pads on glossy paper. My flourish is from Fancy Pants, which is no longer available (I was lucky to buy it the moment it came out).
Each week, you are invited to submit a card using the technique of the week, This week we feature the Fossil Stone technique. Post your card on the Design Junkie blog post where I highlight this technique. You can also submit it to the Technique Junkie Newsletter yahoo group as well. We love to see your stuff.
CONGRATULATIONS APRIL PUZZUOLA you are the winner this week. Your card is on the Yahoo group home page.
Have a great day!

After completing the technique piece, I stamped again on kraft cardstock and pieced the butterfly on top--making him all sparkly with my black Spica glitter pen. It looks fantastic in real life!
The inside of the card houses another great stamp from I Brake For Stamps. It's from the Inspiration Plate #3 (as is the "Pray Often" sentiment) and reads:
Why not go make some fun mail yourself?

Hi, it's Beth here with TRY THAT TECHNIQUE. This week Diana Enns and I challenged each other to use the Herringbone Technique. Diana blows this technique out of the water, and is the technique that caught my attention. From there, our weekly challenge was born.
We now invite the Technique Junkies to join in with us to create a card or project using the technique of the week. This week we work with the Herringbone technique which you can find in the December 2009 issue. It's not too old of an issue, so you should be able to place your fingers on it easily.
Each week we pick one winner who will have their winning card on the Technique Junkie home page for the entire week. Your name will be highlighted along with the name of the technique, and your card. All you have to do is submit a Herringbone card to the Yahoo Group. Please try to remember to link up your card to this post. I don't want to miss your card.
CONGRATULATIONS Jackie Kalchert. You are the winner this week, and will find your card on the Yahoo Home Page.
Stamp: Tiddlyinks digital
Skull and Crossbones: K&Co mat stack

You need a book clip and a (beer) coaster. The pupils are a digital stamp by FireCracker by Designs ( it is free this week until Friday!!) and the technique I used is called acrylic emboss from the new Newletter August 2010.
The text "welcome back" I made with the computer.
The girl and the boy I colored with copic markers and depending on the gender I used the right colors. The background is made with some nestibillities and stuck with some foam tape to the book clip.
For the girls notepad some flowers are added and for the boy I added a pen ( this is a stamp from Club Scrap), but you could also use a die of a pencil or an apple. But I quess you have your own ideas as to decorations.
If you are wondering about the size of the coaster, it is 3,5 x 3,5 inch.
Hope your class will be surprised seeing this and have a wonderful schoolyear 2010-2011!

Hello TJ friends!! Kathie McGuire here today with an oldie from 6/03 called Paper Tole. I love this technique today as much as I loved it 7 years ago!! It's so fast and easy and adds such a great dimension to your cards and other paper craft projects.
This card was fast and easy because I used background paper on the base card. The Paper Tole flower was layered onto a large Prima type flower, giving it much more interest and dimension.
I hope you'll try Paper Tole!
Have a great weekend!!
