I made 16 of these cards yesterday to send to men and women from our church who are serving in the military.
The camouflage effect was done by dropping reinkers in a page protector and placing glossy cardstock inside and rubbing my hand over the protector to transfer the ink.
Colors: Black, Bamboo, Desert Sand, Topiary, Chocolate
Stamps: Army, Starstruck (the conchos in the corner)

Isn't this a fun card? You will find a tutorial here.
The airplane spins along the cut out arch. I used the Coluzzle oval template and cutting knife to cut the the arch in background cardstock piece.
The background was created by embossing a piece of white cardstock with the Cuttlebug and then color washing it with a mixture of acrylic paint, water and re-inker. I brushed the wash on with the largest brush in CTMH's Distressing Kit.
Colors: Holiday Red, Black and Dutch Blue
Stamp Sets: Flyin High, Happy Birthday
Tools: Distressing Kit (paint, paint brush), Dutch Blue re-inker, foam pop dots, pennies (to create to the spinner)
This is a hidden message card. It was inspired by a card I saw in the current issue of Papercrafts Magazine.

I made this card for niece, who turnes one on Wednesday.
The background technique on this card is called Fossil Stone.
Fossil Stone instructions:
Cut the seams down two sides of a page protector so that it opens like a book.
Using ink pads (not reinkers), rub one color on the left side of the opened page protector and another color on the right side.
Lightly mist one side with water and then close the page protector and rub together with your hands.
Open the page protector and place two pieces of glossy cardstock (back to back, glossy side out) inside the page protector and close. Rub over the page protector with your hands again to transfer the ink to the cardstock.
That's all there is to it! Very easy, but delivers beautiful backgrounds!
Colors: Pink Carnation, Key Lime
Stamps: Happy Birthday, Birthday Bash
Ribbon: Baby Pink Organdy

Basically, you drop 2 or more colors of reinker in a report cover (one of them was metallic) and then close the report cover and brayer the colors together. Open cover and place two pieces of glossy cardstock (back to back, glossy side out) inside and close cover and again brayer over it. Remove the cardstock and heat dry (the metallic won't dry if you don't).
You can also do it with regular cardstock, but the effect looks totally different.
