Fabulous Together - Favorite Technique H2H...

This week at H2H, we're asking you to show us your favorite technique!

I used Seaside Paper packet, Cricut Artbooking Cartridge and #30YearsOfHappy Stamp Set.


If you're a follower of my blog, you know that I have several techniques that I use over and over again.  This card actually uses several...

--------------------------------------------
I {{{love}}} sewing on my projects...and using scraps from my Cricut cuts!  Remember {{{this layout}}}...these are scraps from cutting all those hexagons...and what better way to attach it to my card front than sewing...especially when you have such tiny spaces to glue!
-------------------------------------------
We've got layering using Thin 3D-Foam Tape...LOVE the dimension of layering heights...a technique I use quite often!  
----------------------------------------------------
And my FAVORITE technique is ink distressing!!!  Can you see the subtle Desert Sand color around every little piece of this card!  My tool of the trade is Sponge Daubers but I also occasionally use a Round Sponge which I quarter to make it last longer.
----------------------------------------------------
And finally...groupings of three - I think the technique is actually called the rule of odds and my odd number is usually 3...you can see it everywhere in this card.  Sometimes my rule is 3 on the entire project and sometimes, as in this card, it's tiny groupings of 3 here and there.  Even thought the tiny Silver Sequin actually is a 4th element, it plays second seat to the two stamped arrows and the "sweet" so my mind doesn't even see it...lol...crazy, I know!
----------------------------------------------
And I guess decorating the inside of my cards can be a technique...I ALWAYS do it!!!  This one is as simple as using the zip-strip from one of the Seaside B&T pieces and a stamped image from #30YearsOfHappy
--------------------------------------------
Don't forget to stop by H2H and check out what the other Design Team Members created using their favorite technique.  

If you have a favorite technique and would like to link up to our Challenge, you have 'till the end of the month.  We would LOVE to see what you create!

You are rocking the techniques! I don't sew, but I love to ink distress and use the rule of threes too. Awesome card! That Cricut scrap is a great piece.

What a fun card! I love all the layers and a little bit of this and a little bit of that here and there (staples, sequins, scraps of paper). Nicely done.
