Let's go to the Hop!

Hello friends!

It's time for the April Blog Hop at Technique Junkies!

There are some amazing new stamps - I think you're going to really like this release!

All of the new release stamps are 15% Off through April 25th. My 10% coupon (TJPatti10) will take 10% off anything else ordered.

Here is the April 2024 release! As always, you can get the entire release with the Gotta Have It All purchase! That's a savings of almost $32.00, and look at all the beautiful stamps you will receive!

Without further jibber-jabber, here's what I made using some of the April release items:

I thought I'd share the cards I made with the 'Cancer Sucks' set. 
It seems we have all had cancer touch our lives. We are currently dealing with it here. It's fun to find a set with some sassy sentiments, and this fits the bill for sassy!

This card is actually a pale rosy pink, but my camera would not cooperate, sigh...
The background was stamped in pink using the new set 'Patriotic Corners', as was the sentiment from the 'Cancer Sucks' set. I die cut a frame, and matted the sentiment on a mauve cardstock. The sentiment was layered over a small piece of cheesecloth. I left the inside blank.

Next up, I used the beautiful new stamp, 'Wild Poppies'. It was stamped onto white cardstock, colored with Copic markers, and I stenciled around image with pink ink, and a stencil, Messy Diamond Grid, from A Colorful Life Designs. The sentiment is from the 'Cancer Sucks' set. I had a pretty envelope in my stash that matched well - bonus!!!

And, here is the sentiment from 'Cancer Sucks' that was used inside the poppy card:

Next up is this pretty card. First I did some ink smooshing to make the background.  'Wildflower Corner' was then stamped onto smooshed background, and a bit of coloring was done with a water brush, and some ink pads. The sentiment, from 'Cancer Sucks', was stamped in black ink.

Here is the fun inside sentiment, from the 'Cancer Sucks' stamp set.

I'll be back soon with more cards made with some of this great new release!

Now it's time to hop! Check out some of the fabulous creations that the Design Team has come up with, using these sale items!

Patti - You're here!

Thanks for stopping by! 
I'm sorry I've been AWOL, lots (LOTS) going on here, 
and not much time in my girl cave these days. It is SO good to be here briefly, this month! 

Remember, you can save 10% using my TJPatti10 code, on anything besides the new release stamps. See you soon!!!

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Hello out there!

Hello out there!

I haven't posted in over 2 months - oh dear!

Thought today would be a good day to drop in and share the cards that I made today at a workshop that my friend, Ruth had. She prepped some great cards for us, and we had a really good time, getting together to craft, eat, and enjoy some long needed fellowship.

Hope that you are all well, and enjoying life!

Here's what we made today:

Thanks for stopping by!

February 5, 2024

Holy cow! Its' been a LONG time since I've been on the grid. We were gone for over a month, and totally busy since. Now, we are packing for a cruise that has been canceled and rescheduled twice due to Covid! If it's called off again, we won't re-book. That will for sure be smoke signals from God that we don't want to do this cruise!

I have a HUGE favor to ask of you!

Our daughter, Melissa, has been nominated to be a Military Spouse of the Year! She's been doing an amazing job of advocating for Military Spouses everywhere, and we are so very proud of her!

If you go to the link below, you can vote for her once each day through Feb. 9th. We'd so love it if you all voted when you can!  You'll be prompted to create an 'account' which will consist of you entering your name, email address, and creating your password. Easy peasy. Then, just go to the link again and vote!

Thanks in advance - I know your fingers are really busy making gorgeous creations, and appreciate you taking the time to support Melissa!

Here's the link:

Thanks again,

Hugs and blessings,

Patti J.
