Better Than Unicorns!


I used a lovely stencil and Nuvo Glimmer paste to create this focal image panel.  http://techniquejunkies.com/nuvo-products/?sort=featured&page=2 .  The Technique Junkies stamp is called Unicorns and Sparkly - http://techniquejunkies.com/unicorns-and-sparkly/  .  

The verse is heat embossed with detail black embossing powder.   This is such a cute saying and can be used for a  variety of occasions.   A ribbon bow was added for interest.   
Have a wonderful day and get inky!

Live in the Present


I used these two Technique Junkies Stamps - Return to Sender - http://techniquejunkies.com/return-to-sender/ and Live in the Present -  http://techniquejunkies.com/live-in-the-present/.


To create this card I used several cans of Art Anthology Coloration sprays - http://techniquejunkies.com/products-and-accessories/art-anthology-products/. I just spritzed the spray, heat set to dry (you can just let them air dry).   I used my MISTI to stamp and restamp in exactly the same position until the stamped image was clear, crisp, and dark.   The verse is stamped on vellum, and heat embossed on vellum.  I layered it over some white card stock and adhered it to the focal image of the card.  A string of beads were added for interest.

Have a great day and get inky!

This lovely Technique Junkies stamp is Flourished Floral - http://techniquejunkies.com/flourished-floral/.  I stamped it twice paying close to inking up the center flower the second time.  I fussy cut the flower and popped it up with dimensionals being careful to not place in the exact same position as the flower beneath.  A ribbon and a couple of card stock layers were used to finish the card.

Have a great day and get inky!
