Summer Barn

Hi there!

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog, and I wanted to share a pretty card that I made using a stamp from the July 2020 Technique Junkies release.

For this card, I'm stamping with 'Summer Barn'. I absolutely love old barns. In fact, our barn looked so much like this one MANY years ago! Mother Nature, sadly, has not been so good to our poor old barn!

The image was stamped onto white cardstock, using Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. I took a few Copic markers to finish the image, and matted it onto some tan cardstock. This was then 'framed out' with some wood grained and striped paper scraps from my stash. It was all put together and mounted onto a gold card base. The sentiment is from an older set 'Simple Sentiments, Set 2, Style B'.

This was such a lovely image to work with - I hope you'll give it a try!

Now, be sure to head over to the Technique Junkies store and check out the incredible new stamps this month!

30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 3

I'm getting there! 

 Kathy Racoosin, The Daily Marker, is having her 17th 30 Day Coloring Challenge, and I'm trying to color something for the challenge each day this month.

Here is my image for Day 3 - it's a little pre-printed diploma from a series of worksheets/stories that I've been working on with our granddaughter. She finished this packet, so grandma colored with Copics, and laminated her diploma, and it's in the mail!

Hope she likes it!
Thanks for dropping by today!

Take Life With a Grain of Salt...

Hi everyone - Happy Wednesday!
It's time for a new Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for Repeat Impressions.
Here is the inspiration board that Wendy gave us to work with:

I chose to work with: Patterned Paper, Citrus, & Texture.

Today, I used these Repeat Impressions Stamps:

Here's my creation:

I must have googled 100 photos of tequila, and they were all slightly different colors! Since I can't drink, I just have no clue!  This looks pretty good in real life, but on the screen, it looks like watered down tequila! Lol...

Here's a bit of a close-up of the images...

Now it’s your turn! Create something using the Tic-Tac-Toe board above, and link it up at The House that Stamps Built. Remember, your creation does not have to be made with Repeat Impressions stamps, but if you would like to include our designs we would love to see them! Plus, there’s an added bonus… you will get an additional entry in our drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!

Check out my sidebar to see how you can save money on your RI orders!
Lots of things are on sale at Repeat Impressions, so hurry on over and take a peek!!!

Now, it's time to see what my fellow Rock Stars have created!

Stays at the Beach

Hello out there!

It's Fri-yay!

I have a sweet Technique Junkies card to share with you today using one of the fun July stamp sets 'Stays at the Beach'. The set includes both the image and the sentiment. I've framed this adorable set with another new July stamp, 'Floral Card Frame'. Other items used are the 'Currents' A Colorful Life Stencil, and 'Bubble Flow', a stamp from the June release.

First, the 'Floral Card Frame' was stamped. I masked off the frame at the border, and the backtround was stenciled, and stamped with 'Bubble Flow. 'Stays at the Beach' was then stamped, and all images were colored with Copic Markers. A fine layer of blue sparkly tulle was added to the back of the focal panel prior to adhering the panel to a blue card base. Used some Glossy Accents to add a bit of shine to things, and voila!  Done!

Hope you like these stamps as much as I do!  If you need a sweet card, this is it!

Technique Junkies New Release Blog Hop

I have three posts today, so if you are looking the post for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies, or Repeat Impressions, please scroll around until you find them!

We have some awesome new stamps in the Technique Junkies line, and we are eager to share them with you today!

Happy July Release Day!
We have New Stamps in the Technique Junkies line!

Today, I wanted to share two cards I made using stamps from the July 2020 Technique Junkies release. I'm stamping with 'Burst', The First to Apologize, and 'Crane'.

For this first card, I stamped the crane onto white cardstock, and again onto some masking paper. I fussy cut the image, and masked it off. Then I blended blue, yellow, and a touch of green onto some white cardstock, using ink blending brushes, for the background. Next, 'Burst' was stamped with Memento Daffodil Ink, and the sentiment was stamped using Versafine Brown ink. Last, the masking was peeled away, and the image was colored with Copic Markers.

For this card, 'Burst' was stamped onto a piece of deep teal cardstock using Versamark Ink, and was heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed as well. Both teal panels were matted with silver and the card was assembled as shown. SO easy!

Be sure to check out the blog hop list below for some sweet inspiration from our Design Team!
