Age...and Wine

Hi there!

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

Both cards today use S875 Dotted Squares. What a fun background stamp this is - it's so versatile. I've used it two different ways.

Here's what I made:

This card features:
S875 Dotted Squares 
SS126 Gnome for Christmas


For the above card, I used strips of post-it tape, and stamped several different colors on an angle. The sentiment was stamped and matted. The 'wine drinking gnome' (lol...) was stamped onto a scrap of white cardstock, colored with Copic Markers, and fussy cut. He was 'grounded' with a scrap of the same blue as the mat and the card base.


This card features: 
SS129 To Ride a Horse (set of 5)


This time, the Dotted Squares background was stamped with black ink, and adhered to black mat, then card base. The sentiment was stamped in black, matted with black, and popped up over top of a pink 'tail', and a bit of bling was added for balance...and bling!

So glad you stopped by today!

Going Green at The House that Stamps Built

 Hi there, crafty friends!

It's time for another Repeat Impressions Stamps Designer's Choice challenge at The House that Stamps Built. Shirley has challenged us to create a 'Green' themed card this week - anything green!  What a fitting challenge for March!

Today, I used the heart from the Love stamp. I inked it in green ink, stamped it three times, and fussy cut the hearts. The card was finished with a green bling, and some green washi tape, and a fun sentiment. I didn't have a shamrock stamp from Repeat Impressions, so made this work!

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


Hope you like it!

Technique Junkies March Release Blog Hop

Today is March first - Release day at Technique Junkies! This month we have 15 new stamps for you, and a little online celebration of the new stamps. All of the March stamps are 15% off through March 8th, too! Here is the Gotta Have it all Bundle, and a little preview of the new stamps:

We have awesome new stamps in the Technique Junkies line!
 
All of the March 2021 New Release stamps are 15% off through March 8th! No codes needed, 
just put them in your shopping cart and the discount will be applied at checkout.

This card features:

SS129 To Ride a Horse (set of 5)
A Colorful Life Stencils 'Messy Diamond Grid' and 'Cloud Edger'
Ink Blending Brushes



For the above card, the horse was stamped 3 times onto white cardstock, using a 'stamping off' technique, and moving the stamp a little bit each time. This hopefully, gave the appearance of 
running horse(s). Using some Ink Blending Brushes, and the Messy Diamond Grid Stencil, and 
brown distress oxide ink, I stenciled around the images. Next, I used some blue Distress Oxide 
Ink and the Cloud Edger Stencil, to create some clouds over the diamond grid. The sentiment 
was stamped, a piece of burlap trim added to the bottom of the card, and some faux stitches 
drawn on. The panel was adhered to a panel of woodgrain, then to a gray/brown card base.


This card uses:
Patterned paper
Die cuts


To create the above card, the image and sentiment were stamped onto a panel of patterned 
wood-grained paper. The heart border was die cut first from darker woodgrain paper, then from 
gold cardstock. The gold hearts were placed into the woodgrain openings, and the panel was 
adhered to a card base.

This card uses:

Patterned Paper
Die cut


The sentiment was stamped in brown ink, and matted in green. A green card base was 
covered with two pieces of patterned paper, and the sentiment was popped up on the focal 
panels. A brown heart from the precious card was adhered for balance. Easy!


I hope you like this beautiful new release! Great stuff is yet to come this month!

My 10 Minute Pick of the Week

 Hi everyone!

It's my turn to once again share a Pick of the Week at The House that Stamps BuiltThe Repeat Impressions Stamps that I picked to showcase are:


So...have you ever needed a card for a missed design team deadline? (Asking for a friend) 
Last night, Wendy, the owner of Repeat Impressions (my boss! gulp) messaged me and thought perhaps she had lost my POTW post, because she couldn't find it. Truth is...I wigged out!  I created a POTW for my NEXT turn, but forgot one for this post. So, there was a mad dash this a.m. to create a post that wasn't too photo heavy, as Wendy will have to pull everything together at the last minute!

Here's what I needed for my 10 minute creation:

A card base (grabbed a pre-cut, pre-scored base)
A white panel
Several colors of ink
Black Ink, and stamps


For this card, I just took that darling Fern stamp, and began randomly stampin it on the white panel, until I thought enough was enough. I then added the dots, and finished with the sentimen.
The panel was adhered to the card base, and I was truly finished, and had things put away in 10 minutes!




Hope you like this - Give it a try with any of your fun stamps!

 For this week only (February 22 - February 28th), get 20% off the stamps used in my creation above when you use the coupon code POTW22221.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I am entering this card in the Turner Syndrome Blog hop!  There are a few days left to enter - 23 sponsors, some of the design team members are giving prizes. My prize is a $30 gift card to Technique Junkies Stamps!!! Check it out HERE.

Hugs and blessings,

Wine a Little, Laugh a Lot

 Hi there! 

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

Both cards today use 'SD1057 Wine a Little'. What fun is this?  I'm sure we all know someone we could send one of these to! 

This first card has 'SD1007 Artistic Swipe' in the background. I LOVE this stamp, and will be using it often!  I used my Ink Blending Brushes and A Colorful Life 'Faded Petals' stencil, and voila! Very quick, fun card for someone special!




And here is the second card. I used another new release 'S896 Poppy Arrangement' to 'frame' the sentiment. Isn't it pretty?  Coloring was done with Copic Markers, and a bit of white gel pen. Used some glossy accents on the wine glass and flowers to add some shine. I used Ink Blending Brushes to fill in the white space, and love the way it turned out!



We have TWO February 'Gotta Have it All' Bundles!  The first bundle is shown below. Here's what you'll get:

Get Well Challenge 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 'Get Well' this week.

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



I stamped the Vertical flowers twice, leaving room in the center for the sentiment. An edge punch finished the top and bottome edges of the focal panel. The last addition was a couple pieces of Washi tape. I like the way this 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!

Let's Go to the Movies

Hi there! 

I have a few fun cards to share today, using the '#SS132 Go to the Movies' set. What a fun set this is - there are 7, yes SEVEN stamps in this set! 

This card also uses 'S895 Cinema Pattern' for the background panel. Is this not nostalgic? Oh my goodness, as I colored each little part of this, it reminded me of days gone by! Coloring was done  with Copic Markers.




And here is the second card. The background was made with the A Colorful Life 'Baby It's Cold' stencil, and negative strips cut out from the Go to the Movies set. 



The last card was made by stamping and fussy cutting4 sets of the 'tickets' from the 'Go to the Movies Stamp set. Everything was distressed, and a bit of skinny gold Washi tape was added for a bit of pizazz!

We have TWO February 'Gotta Have it All' Bundles!  The first bundle is shown below. Here's what you'll get:
