Dream Big

Hi there! 

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog.  

I have a pretty card to share today, using SDX188 Big and S893 Tamashii Modern Frame. This was an easy card. Just heat embossed everything with white embossing powder, and ink blended over top of the stamping, prior to layering onto a card base. 10 minute card!



I have really enjoyed this April release - wait until you see May's beautiful stamps!

So glad you stopped by today!

Wildflowers Silhouette

Hi there!

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog, and I'd like to share two cards that I created, with some new April release products.

What better way to start out, than by using a classic black and white theme? The white heat embossed image is so vibrant on the black background!



This next card began with a background panel. The 6 Square Shadow Stencil, some Distress Oxide Inks, and blending brushes were used to create a pretty panel, which was then lightly spritzed with Shimmering Bliss 'Dolphin Cove'. Once the panel was ready, the image S889 Wildflowers Silhouette, and the image 'SS134 In the Garden were stamped onto the panel with black Versafine ink. The focal panel was adhered to a black card base.

Pick of the Week at The House that Stamps Built

Hi everyone!

It's my turn to share a Pick of the Week at The House that Stamps Built

Today, I chose to feature a very quick and easy card style.

The Repeat Impressions Stamps that I used for this card are:  


I'm one of these folks that have always thought that every image needs to be colored to be pretty, and make a statement. Recently, I began trying some other ideas that eliminated coloring. Here is one idea that makes a 10 minute card every time!

So, dig out three colors of cardstock that you like, and cut them into strips the width of your card front. I used some repositionable tape to hold these panels in place for stamping. Also, choose either a large background stamp, or stamps to 'fill' your three panels.


Next, after positioning your panels, stamp your image.


After stamping, take each panel, and adhere it to your card front.


You can stop there, or continue on with a sentiment - here's what I did...
I cut a very thin strip of the blue cardstock used for the center panel, and created a vertical line across my card front. I then chose a sentiment, stamped it in Versamark on black cardstock, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment was adhered with pop dots to the blue strip. It looked too plain, so I added a couple of teensy white hearts that a friend had given me.


Grab those RI stamps and give this a try!
 For this week only (April 12 - April 18th), get 20% off the stamps used in my creation above when you use the coupon code POTW41221.

Hugs and blessings,

You are the World

Hi there!

Edited!  I liked this one so much that I created a yellow one today!

I have a pretty card to share today, featuring an older Technique Junkies stamp set #SS071 'You are the World', Set of 3. It's almost Mother's Day, and this seemed a perfect card to share!


This was so easy to create. The image was stamped in the center of the focal panel, and a flower was stamped on either side. A Colorful Life Designs Stencil 'Damask', was ink blended around the edges with Kitsch Flamingo Ink. The flowers were colored with Copics, and glossy accents was scribbled onto the flowers. The panel was adhered to a white A2 card base.

Here's the yellow card - you can see the glossy's on this one!



Hope you like it!

Garden Tools

Hi there!

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog.  I have two cards to share today, just in time for the planting season! Things are beginning to pop out of the ground and bloom, here in Southeast Missouri. What fun this stamp was to create with!   

For the first card, the background was spritzed with Chestnut Mare Shimmering Bliss, over top of 'Brick Wall', A Colorful Life Stencil'. I adhered the brick panel to a card base, and set it aside to dry. Next, S902 'Garden Tools' was stamped onto white cardstock, colored with Copics, distressed with Ink Blending Brushes and a variety of Distress Oxide Inks, and a circle was cut out of the panel. One of the garden tools, and the hose were also fussy cut from what was left over after the circle was die cut. The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of cardstock, the same as the base color, and was spritzed with Chestnut Mare Shimmering Bliss. The circle, tools, and sentiment were then adhered to the card base. This will be fun to send to a gardener that we know!


Next up is another card made with S902 'Garden Tools'. The image was stamped, colored with Copics, and the background was added with A Colorful Life Designs Stencil 'Grunge Dots'. The panel was then distressed with Distress Oxide Ink and Ink Blending Brushes


The sentiment on the inside is from SS134 'In the Garden'.  
Here is the inside of the second card:


I am SO enjoying this April release, and hoping that you like it, too!
