The first thing you need to know is today is the last day for the 15% off of the Technique Junkie February release stamps - http://techniquejunkies.com/february-2017-release/. So if you haven't gone shopping, you need to do that today!
I have an IMPORTANT announcement, if you place ANY order from Technique Junkies and you use the code TJ10Judy you will automatically get a 10% saving on your order! Please use this code when you place your order!
I really, really like this Technique Junkie Palm Tree stamp - http://techniquejunkies.com/palm-trees-set-of-3/ . But I was disappointed with how I was able to use it. However, the problem was with the stamper (me!) and not the stamp! I loved how Kathy used it on her blog for the February Blog Hop on February 1. In case you do not know what I am talking about -- here is the link: https://craftynurse4u.wordpress.com/2017/02/01/technique-junkies-february-blog-hop/ . She used this stamp for her first card. But the real magic come from using the MISTI http://techniquejunkies.com/misti-most-incredible-stamping-tool-invented/ AND Pat sells it!
Jill Foster shows this technique that both Kathy and I used with this wonderful stamp. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocRj8t9p-7A&t=1s .
Again I am somewhat limited because I am in Florida and have a limited amount of supplies with me! But markers, sponging, a home made cloud stencil, painter's tape, and black Versafine ink with clear embossing powder made it good!
Have a great day and get inky!
