Hey there! 

We are starting a new weekly feature in the 7 Kids emails today with quick Walk Thru Wednesday photo tutorials by the design team. Not only will we be featuring quick tips and tricks for your card making but we will also be featuring stamps from that month's current Featured Vendor. This month is all about Gorjuss Girls and for my WTW card I have colored up the lovely stamp called Birds of a Feather. While these extra large stamps are a lot of fun to color, their large size really fills an entire A2 sized card front. Personally, I love adding a sentiment to the front of my cards so this size can make it kind of difficult to figure out where to fit words in without compromising the overall design. That's where the "eclipse" technique comes in handy. The finished result is a subtle message that blends in beautifully with the scene you have colored. There are plenty more tips and tricks coming from my fellow team mates each week so if you haven't signed up for the 7 Kids newsletter yet be sure to do so on the store home page. And don't forget that you have until the end of January to take advantage of the 20% off Gorjuss Girls when you use the code GORJUSS at check out. :)
