Ruffle Your Feathers??


I used the very cute Ruffle Your Feathers from the Technique Junkies May Stamp release.  The rooster was colored with  my Copic markers.  I added a few sequin type embellishments to the focal image.

The background paper was created from a piece  of  8x8 inch paper  commercially available  from a "big box store."  I sprayed several colors of Distress Chalk ink sprays. I have learned that spraying over some type of background paper gives you a more interesting look than just spraying over plain white card stock.  At least I liked it better.  Then I used several stencils here and there over the sprays.  I used Lace Doily Stencil, Wispy Vines Stencil,  and an Art Anthology Stencil called Dot Matrix. 

Then I added ink here and there to the Technique Junkies French Text.  I stamped the randomly inked areas here and there on the background. 

The burlap ribbon is really straight, I just have a hard time take an absolutely straight picture!


Pat Huntoon is offering this very fun stamp for free!  The Make a Wish stamp is free with a $30 purchase (before taxes) - this cannot be purchased in May, it’s only available as free with purchase.

Have a wonderful day -- and make some time to get inky!!

Life in Full Color!



I used Copic markers to color in the feather in image stamped with the Technique Junkies Live in Color stamp.  The background and the  top layer on the card are created with Color Burst .  I created this card in Florida and I am writing this post in Pennsylvania so I have no idea exactly which Color Burst I used.

There is a free stamp with a $30.00 purchase (before taxes and shipping).  The free stamp is called Make A Wish.  It is not available purchase in May.

Define Success!


I modified a "sketch" layout for this card.  I don't even remember where I saw this layout.Various background papers and layering complete the background. 

I heat embossed the Technique Junkies Stamps Define Success and then die cut it with a scalloped circle die.  Sponging and layering  and a bit of bling complete the card.

The greeting is a terrific way to say Congratulations on your graduation, your promotion,  new job, retirement, or something else worth saying Hooray for you!

With Sympathy



The focal image on this card is a dry embossed piece of white card stock.  I inked up a brayer with navy ink and rolled it onto the half of the embossing folder that had the indentations.  Then the card stock was embossed with navy ink on the part that was not embossed. 

I stamped the greeting on white card stock and punched it out.  Other punched pieces were added behind the greeting.

Have a great day and get inky!!

Because I Said So!


I don't know about you, but my mother and father said these types of things a lot.  And I am sure I said quite a few of them as well.  When I first saw this new Technique Junkies release of Because I Said  So stamp I thought of the Technique Junkies stamp Hat Ladies

I opted to only use the one lady of the two on the stamp.  I paper pieced her dress and hat.  A string of pears are the buttons on her dress, and tiny sequins are her ear rings.  I fussy cut the lady and adhered her to the top layer of the focal image.  The Because I Said So image was stamped a piece of white card stock sprayed with Distress Chalk Inks sprays.  

There is a free stamp with a $30.00 purchase (before taxes and shipping).  The free stamp is called Make A Wish.  It is not available purchase in May.

Life is Art!!


I created this card with a focal image stamped with Technique Junkies Live In Color from the May TJ release!! The feather was colored with my Copic markers.  I added a burlap ribbon and a few sequins as embellishments. 

The background paper was created from a piece  of  8x8 inch paper  commercially available  from a "big box store."  I sprayed several colors of Distress Chalk ink sprays. I have learned that spraying over some type of background paper gives you a more interesting look than just spraying over plain white card stock.  At least I liked it better.  Then I used several stencils here and there over the sprays.  I used Lace Doily StencilWispy Vines Stencil,  and an Art Anthology Stencil called Dot Matrix.
