This month I decided to create spotlight cards...this is a fun technique that has been around for years. Basically what you do is stamp image twice then punch out sections and mount them onto second stamped image. clear as mudd, right? lol! Here I did the spotlight technique on the front of the card add color with my prisma color pencils on the spotlights. See the inside of my card...it's a pop-up.  Also made an easel card with the left over spotlight to make a reverse spotlight.  You know what they say a picture is worth a thousand words so please check out my samples then check out what the rest of our design team has to offer this month. Next check out what  Janine has done with this stamp set.
