Yellow Brick Road

Hello!

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog, and I wanted to share a card using Op Art, and Yellow Brick Road, from the April new releases.  

You can save 15% on all new release stamps until April 8th!


I read a meme on Facebook the other day that said 'who knew when we woke up that Sunday in March, and pushed the clock forward an hour, we'd wake up in the twilight zone'?  I had to laugh out loud, but I have to admit, with everything going on around us, it feels a bit like that's what happened!  

So...with that thought in mind, this card was born!

The background was created by heat embossing with black powder. The sentiment was also heat embossed.


Don't forget!!! You can also save 10% on any order by entering TJ10Patti at checkout.


This was so easy to create! Hope you will give it a try!

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

Good Stories......

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog, and I wanted to share another card using 'Bad Decisions' from the March new releases.  The background was created using the K-Flip Technique from the October-November 2014 Technique Junkies Tutorial.  The image/sentiment was stamped with the K-Pad, and stamped again on a piece of cardstock covered with Washi Tape strips. I fussy cut the dress and adhered it to the focal panel. A gemstone finished off the focal panel.  A couple of Washi Tape strips were added to each side of the K-Flip panel, and the card was assembled.


Don't forget!!! You can save 10% on any order by entering TJ10Patti at checkout.


This was so easy to create! Hope you will give it a try!

Anything Goes Challenge at The House that Stamps Built

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all surviving the virus. So far, we are doing well virus-wise.

Today is a new challenge for Repeat Impressions Stamps.
It’s 'Anything Goes' at the RI blog, The House that Stamps Built, and we hope you will join us!

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

9108 G Born to be Wild


Thought this would make a fun man-card!
I stamped the image, then die cut it, sponging some colors on the circle while it was still in the die. 
It was mounted on an embossed silver panel - love how masculine this looks!
Hope you enjoy it!

Now it’s your turn!
We hope you will create a card that has a focus on today’s challenge, 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!
