Ink Smooshing can be amazing

Cards I made for a swap. 

All made with Distress Inks and the water smooshing technique.

Sorry it's sideways. LOL

Napkins? Yes...Napkins make great cards!

Have you tried the napkin card technique?

It's fun and so many possibilities exist.

All of the cards follow the same basic technique.

Take 1/4 sheet of card stock and put through Xyron 5" sticker maker.

OR use another form of adhesive sheet  but I found the Xyron to work the best and without the waste.

Peel off all baking layers on napkins until you have only the colored front sheet.

Add napkin to card stock layer.

Coat piece with Versa Mark or other clear ink and 
sprinkle on glitter or plain clear embossing powders and heat set. 

OR add a layer of Gloss/Matte Mod Podge instead.

Trim up the edges. HINT: Make sure your trimmer blades are new and sharp!

OR diecut them using your favorite dies.

Assemble your cards.

Give this technique a try with your favorite $ store napkins.

Who doesn't love plaid?

I love a good plaid.  I got my hands on a great little kit and made a few cards.

Get your plaid on folks!
