Three for Two Technique Class

Tomorrow night at technique class we will be learning not two, but three new techniques!  The first technique I read about on Gretchen Barron's Blog and it is Faux Torn Vellum Technique.  I am also entering this card:
Upsy Daisy Faux Torn Vellum Technique
 in two different challenges.  The first is the Stamping 411 challenge as follows:
And the second is the Utah Divas Color Challenge #53 as follows:





The second card we will be making has two techniques on it.  The first was used to make the leaves on this card and it is called Watercolor Re-inker Technique and the other is a Shaker Frame. 
Autumn Splendor Shaker Card
The shaker was made using Stampin' Up!'s new Shaker Frames in the Holiday Mini Catalog, Window Sheets and Champaign Glass Glitter.  Here is a close up of the shaker frame:
I made this card for three different challenges:  First, Hand Stamped Sentiments #84 they have a Fall Theme Challenge:
The second challenge is over at Friday Mashup Challenge #24 I decided to "Mash it Up" and create an "Autumn project using shades of Yellow and Orange":
And the third, but not last challenge is over at Unscripted Sketches #124 that I used for my sketch:
I hope that my ladies enjoy making these as much as I did designing them.  So here are the recipes for the two cards:

Debbie, Your Stamping 411 challenge card is fabulous. The technique is so nice for mailing because of it's flatness but it looks like it has so much dimension. You did a great job. Just the right amount of bling too.
