Paper Napkin Trasnfer

Play so I had never done this technique before, I have always wanted to try it but have never gotten around to it! So todays Technique Lovers Challenge 192 on SCS was to create a card using the napkin transfer technique, so I thought Hey what a perfect oppertunity to try it out!

I was looking through the cabinets and would you believe that the only paper napkins I have are these Lightning Macqueen napkins! So a kids card it is! I have a newphew with a birthday next month so this is perfect!

On the technique lovers challenge thread is calls for parchments paper...but alas I am not a fancy cook and didn't have any of that in my drawer, but I had heard of doing this technique using saran or plastic wrap so that's what I did!
Here is the "Sandwich" that you need to make this card
-copy paper
-cardstock
-saran wrap
-napkin pretty side face up
-copy paper
-iron
***Be sure to separate your napkin if it's a 2 ply so that you are only using one layer on your card...won't stick too well if you have more than one layer!***
I also made this card to play in Sharons (notimetostamp) challenge on her blog here...her challenge was to make a flat card...no raised embelishments...I think I accomplished the task, but boy did I want to add eyelets or brads somewhere!
Supplies:
Stamps:Beauty of Nature by Little Paper Shop
Ink:Stazon black
Paper:real red, pacific point, whisper white
Accessories: copy paper, circle punches, key tag punch, napkin, saran wrap, iron, corner punch
***All Supplies from Stampin' Up Unless otherwise stated***
And Now for some personal pics!
We had such a wonderful and busy weekend, but I wanted to share some pics from a costume party we went to. My friend Nikki (NCSUNikki on SCS) has thrown a very nice and so much fun Halloween party for the past few years and we always have the privelidge to be invited. Our kids just love it. They have all sorts of games with prizes for the kids and a rockin swing set! So here are some pics from the party.
David Went as Batman, he looks on seriously as he waits his turn at the octopus toss game...for every ring they toss on the octopus they get prizes from the goody basket! Serious stuff!
Emelia was a Princess, her crown is hidden by her flying hair, she loved her costume so much that she wanted to sleep in it! LOL No I didn't let her, but I did let her wear it to the evening service at church though! LOL

And here is a twofer, a picture of Bella as a Baby Jaguar and Andrew...not sure what he went as, but at least he had a costume! (I love you baby!!!, and your awesome costume!!!LOL)
Doesn't Bella look too cute with her little wiskers? I didn't even try to put a headband with little ears on her because I knew they wouldn't last more than 2 seconds! I was glad she let me color her nose and add wiskers!
That's all I have for you today!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stampin'
May God Bless you Today and Always,
Silvia
