Hey there friends! Happy Saturday! I hope you are continuing to stay safe and healthy. Today at the Catch the Bug blog, we're looking for some new techniques, or ones you don't do very often. For my card, I chose to do some "paper stripping," as Laura Bassen calls it. In other words, I used different paper strips to create the background of my card:

Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog! I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy. Today, my crafty friends and I are at it again...digging through our stashes of crafty things we have been collecting and NOT using. For this month's theme and optional product or technique, we are being THANKFUL, and using FOIL/SHINY things to show it!
Ok, so for the supplies I used that I have been
hoarding saving for a rainy day, that would be the panel embossed with a Love Nicole hearts folder (from my scraps), and the Duck Brand Deco Metallic Laminate that I used for the top layer of the sentiment. This is also the first time I have used this particular die from this sentiment set from Love Nicole. I hadn't used my Spellbinders classic hearts or scalloped hearts in a good while (since January, maybe?). I did use a brand spanking new product, and that is the Crackling Campfire Oxide ink, and I combined it with Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade for a definitely fall-inspired color scheme. I splattered the panel with bronze Perfect Pearls mixed with water. I must say, I definitely love that look! The sequins in the see-through shaker are unlabeled from my stash. I used 2 layers of foam tape between the card base and the panel, and treated the sides of the foam tape with powder from my anti static bag. You can see how well that worked for me, LOL! The sentiment was also cut 3 times from scraps of 110lb. white card stock to give it more presence.
