Deepest Sympathy

I used two Technique Junkies stamps to  create this card. The background is called Watercolor Flowers - http://techniquejunkies.com/watercolor-flowers/  , and a verse from the set called With Sympoathy - http://techniquejunkies.com/with-sympathy-set-of-5/

I first stamped the flowers with back ink.  I cleaned the stamp and then I stamped it slightly offset from the first image with white pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I used some pale yellow vellum to heat emboss the greeting.  Layers  and  pearls finish the card.

Friends and Rainy Days

This day, this very day, my twin granddaughters turn 11!  And like many children they both like animals.  One likes piggies, and one likes DUCKS.  When I saw this Unity stamp I had to buy it.  It was almost someone was pushing me toward the computer, and clicking on the various buttons that buy this NOW!!

I used the same Salad Spinner technique for the background (look at my September 1, 2017 post for complete directions), and I used my Copic markers to color in the image.  the puddles and the grass were sort hand colored and sort of sketched in.  This is a cute card for one of my 5 cute granddaughters!  

Have a wonderful day and get inky!

A Rainy Day...

Every now and then you need a quick card to send to someone who is just having a rough time in this game we call life.  They may or may not be "sick"  -- but you know things are not making them say, "Oh hooray, this is happening to me to me now."

I used two Technique Junkies stamps -  Paint Rings - techniquejunkies.com/paint-rings/; and Play in the Puddles - http://techniquejunkies.com/play-in-the-puddles/  .

This is such a simple to create a card with impact. Both stamps were heat embossed with white pigment ink and white detail embossing powder.  Then because "puddles" makes you thjink of rain puddles I used blue dye based  ink.  I used a sponge and burnished .ink all over the stamped image. I burnished and burnished until I was happy with the intensity of the color.

Then the images were matted and arranged on the base card.

Life is A Song!



I used three Technique Junkies stamps to create this card.   The background stamp is a November release called Violin collage - techniquejunkies.com/violin-collage/ .  I stamped it on white card stock and embossed it with clear embossing powder over Versamark ink.  Then I sprayed a variety of color of Art Anthology Colorations sprays - http://techniquejunkies.com/products-and-accessories/art-anthology-products/  .  Then I blotted off the excess.

Next I used a small piece of white card stock sprayed with the same variety of Art Anthology Colorations sprays as above.  After it was dry I stamped The Saxophonist - http://techniquejunkies.com/the-saxophonist/  , and Life is A Song - http://techniquejunkies.com/life-is-a-song/.  Both stamps were stamped with black Versafine ink and heat embossed with detail black embossing powder.

The focal image was trimmed and mounted,  Stick on embellishments were used.

Give Me the Beat Boys!



I sprayed  white stock with  several colors of  Colorations spray from Art Anthology products - http://techniquejunkies.com/products-and-accessories/art-anthology-products/  .  Then I stamped  Technique Junkies November release stamp Torn Music Collage - techniquejunkies.com/torn-music-collage/ -    with  black ink.   The focal image Technique Junkies Free My Soul - http://techniquejunkies.com/free-my-soul/  - was stamped with black Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The treble clef  is a purchased music embellishment.  I pressed it into my Versamark pad and covered it with detail gold embossing powder.  I did this several times to ensure a thick coat that would be smooth when completed.  It is attached with glue dots.

Stay Humble


The Technique Junkies background stamp is called Sudsy Stuff - http://techniquejunkies.com/sudsy-stuff/  .  I inked up the stamp with a gray ink on blue card stock.  I added die cut ocean plants, and a die cut sea turtle.  I placed the turtle die cut on sticky embossable table and added several shades of embossing powder, and heat set the turtle.  Then I pressed a Versamark pad on the turtle and covered it with clear embossing poweder.  I did this several times so to look at the turtle it almost appears to be glass.

I stamped the Technique Junkies November release stamp Stay Humble -  techniquejunkies.com/stay-humble/ - on yellow vellum.  I stamped with a black Versafine ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.    The edges were torn and then adhered with adhesive from a Xyron machine.
