Please Welcome our Celebrity Guest Designer Jennifer Mcguire!
We are thrilled to have Jennifer McGuire join us today! You have undoubtedly seen Jennifer's work in Creating Keepsake Magazine as a regular contributor as well as a Hero Arts artist. There's a reason why so many of you gravitate towards her work -- it's fresh, gorgeous, and comes from the heart. Best of all she uses a cuttlebug.
Well, here, let me just show you! Jennifer created this card using her Cuttlebug along with a clever technique that involves sanding the embossed areas and adding color.
In fact, Jennifer created a VIDEO TUTORIAL that shows you exactly how she achieved the effect. You can run over to her blog to check out the video. While you're there, you may want to peek inside her video vault - I think I've seen each one at least three times - love her videos!
