Math Equations

Hi there!

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog. I have two fun cards to share, using the 'S891 Math Equations' background stamp. What fun to work with this background - just look at all of the details!

For this first card, the background was stamped with Versamark ink onto black cardstock, and heat embossed in white. I 'framed' the panel with woodgrain to look like a chalkboard. Then, I stamped and colored the pooch and sentiment, fussy cut them, and adhered them over the background. The dog and sentiment are from #SD764 'Can't Afford the Cat'. Thought it was a perfect pairing!


The second card was easy-peasy!  I used the #S891 Math Equations, and #SD924 'Internet Browser'. Both were simply stamped onto white cardstock, and matted with black.


I'm loving this May release! Hope you are too!!!

So glad you stopped by today!

Hanging Stars

Hi there!

I have two cards to share today, using the #SD1077 'Hanging Stars' and #SD1075 'Stars Can't Shine' stamps. This stamp is fun! Later in the month, you'll see me work with it in different ways and different colors.

Each of these cards was stamped in Versamark onto patterned paper, and heat embossed. One was embossed with silver, and one with white. The silver is so pretty in real life, but doesn't show up well on camera. The white just pops beautifully!



Which do YOU like best?

I think you're going to love this May release!

Technique Junkies' May 2021 New Release Blog Hop

 


It's May 1st - Release day at Technique Junkies! We have some awesome new stamps for you! All of the April Stamps are 15% off through May 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 #SD1089 'Birthdays are Like Golf'.  I used a piece of patterned paper for half of the background, and the 'A Colorful Life Designs Falling Stars' stencil for the other half. The focal panel was stamped, colored with Copic Markers, paperpieced, and mounted onto the card base with foam dots. 


The second card uses the #SD1090 Daily Dose of Iron' image, which was stamped and colored with Copic markers, before paper piecing her clothes, and using the 'A Colorful Life Designs Cloud Edger' stencil, to create a background. A couple of quick die cuts finished the focal panel which was matted in yellow, and adhered to the card base.


Last, but not least, I used the two images together to create a fun scene.  The two stencils from A Colorful Life Designs that I used for this card were the Cloud Edger Stencil, and the Messy Diamond Grid. Some patterned paper is placed behind them.


I hope you like these fun new releases, and can't wait for you to see the rest of this release!

Wildflower Border

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 April release stamps.

The 'SD1098 Wildflower Borderstamp, and the A Colorful Life Designs 'Damask' stencil were featured on both of these cards. Hopefully, you will enjoy seeing how different each one looks, just by changing up colors and techniques a bit.

For the first card, the image was stamped and colored in Copic markers. I made a mask of the image, masked it, and did the stenciling in yellow and green Distress Oxide Inks, using an ink blending brush. The sentiment from 'SS134 In the Garden' was then stamped with black ink.


The next card was super simple.  I masked and ink blended a portion in the center of my focal panel, prior to stenciling again with the 'Damask' stencil in pink and orchid Distress Oxide Inks. The image, 'SD1098 Wildflower Border' and sentiment 'SS134 In the Garden' were then stamped with black ink.

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!

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.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.
