You are the World

Hi there!

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.

Hope you like it!

So glad you stopped by today,

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!

Technique Junkies April New Release Blog Hop

 

It's April 1st - Release day at Technique Junkies! We have some awesome new stamps for you! All of the April Stamps are 15% off through April 8th, too! No codes needed, just put them in your shopping cart and the discount will be applied at checkout. Here is the Gotta Have it all Bundle, and a little preview of the new stamps:

This card features SDX188 'Big'.  I made the background by masking off each area one at a time, and blending some pretty colors with the Ink Blending Brushes. A couple of die cuts were added, and to finish the card, I ink blended a circle, stamped the sentiment, and popped it up with some dimensional foam. The focal panel was adhered to a black card base.


The second card today, uses both the SDX188 'Big', and S905 'Baseball in Motion'.
I stamped the image with red ink, then used just the upper left corner of the image to stamp some gray dots here and there on the focal panel. The sentiment was stamped in black ink, and some faux stitching finished the panel, which was then adhered to a red card base.

I'm a huge Cardinal's fan, so this had to be red!  However, I can see it in a pretty royal blue, black and gold.....possibilities are endless - can't wait to see your creations!


I hope you like this beautiful new release! Great stuff is yet to come this month!
Be sure to check out the list below for some sweet inspiration from our Design Team!

Monochromatic Creations at The House that Stamps Built

 Hi there, crafty friends!

It's time for another Repeat Impressions Stamps challenge at The House that Stamps Built. Wendy has challenged us to use a theme of 'Monochromatic' this week.

Here's what I made using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:




I stamped the flowers with Versamark Ink, and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I used an ink blending brush to cover the panel. The last step was to use a finger dauber, and daub on some purple in the center of each flower, and add the sentiment. Easy card, and is way prettier in real life. I like the way it turned out!

This was a fun challenge, and I hope you'll all join in! We all need Get Well cards in our stash!

 We hope you will create a card that has a focus on today’s theme, and enter it in our challenge 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 random.org drawing for using our stamps in your submissions!

Increasing in Value...

Hi there!

 Hi there! 

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

I have a pretty card to share today, using the 'S882 Spring Flowers' background stamp. What a lovely stamp this is to work with - just look at all of the details! This card also features a new release sentiment 'SDX182 Increasing in Value'.

The image was stamped first on a white cardstock panel. I used 'A Colorful Life Cloud Edger Stencil' to create a bit of sky prior to coloring the panel. All coloring was done with Copic markers. The image was actually stamped on both the focal panel, and again on another panel. Each panel was colored, then  I fussy cut the larger flowers and popped them up over top of the first stamped image. Once the card was completed, I used Glossy Accents on the larger flowers, then stamped, matted, and adhered the sentiment to the card front.



I've enjoyed this March release! Hope you have too!!!

So glad you stopped by today!

Blue Knight Rubber Stamps - Momma and Baby Sheep

                                                              Hello, my crafty friends!


This is my las day, but I'm so excited to be back here today, guest designing for Blue Knight Rubber Stamps!

I got to work with this company the last two years, and I very much enjoyed creating with their beautiful, high quality stamps. I was eager to get started with the fun stamps that the owner,  Lynn Anderson sent me this month.

For this post, I used this Blue Knight Rubber Stamps set:


I was asked to use this stamp set to achieve two different looks. I thought I'd work with spring/summer theme for this first card. The focal panel was colored entirely with Copic markers. Once the panel was finished, I adhered it to a green card base and added a couple of tiny butterflies. Voila!


For the second card, I went with a fall/beginning of winter look. To create this card, I colored the image with Copic markers. Then, I ink blended  the sky (oops, right over top of the sunflower stalk) and mounted it to a piece of brown cardstock.




Hope you like these cards, and are inspired to check out the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps Blog (link below) for more inspiration from the design team!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
And thank you to Lynn at Blue Knight Rubber Stamps for the opportunity to work with your wonderful products!

Hugs and blessings,
