Making a film strip (this one also uses a cut out with crystal effect-ed palm trees!)
Stamping on Shimmery White paper (this one has added glitter too!)
Corner pieces accented with brads
Paper Piercing Accenting with Crystal Effects
Adding a layer of patterned paper (if you're a paper hoarder like me than you can stretch out your patterned paper by using only bits and strips on cards)
Not using the entire stamped image and using a scalloped punch as a FRAME rather than a mat layer - this scalloped circle frame sits on TOP of the image!
Hanging a tag embellishment on a card (this tag is actually loose)
Roughing up your edges with a tool or your fingernail. I think this technique has been around for a LONG time. I remember seeing it on the Stampin' Up! Demo training video!!
Layering diffent colours and shapes of cardstock (this looks like the flower is in a black "hole" cut out of the burgundy layer but it's actually multiple layers & pieces of the black cardstock).
That's it for now. I've got more swaps coming in and if I find some different tips and techniques I'll post again on Tips, Techniques and Inspiration.
I hope you enjoyed seeing these as much as I did when I received these swaps!
