Autumn Blessings

This beautiful TJ  Autumn Blessing card is painted with watercolor pencils.  I added a cute cardinal brad to the branch of the tree.  The sky is painted with Ocean Depth Shimmering Bliss Sprays spritzed on my craft mat, and then applied with my water brush.

Screaming Calories



Sometimes a simple card is all you need.  This is just a fun, fun stamp.  I don't know too many people who at one point in their life have not felt like they needed to lose some weight.   An I know this message is just how they felt!

I used Technique Junkies Screaming Calories to create this card.  I used Copic Markers to color the pig and sponged the grass and sky.

A Trio of Shells

To create this card, I used several Technique Junkies stamps: French Text, Seashells, and Seagrass. I stamped French Text on the background, and then the Seagrass on top of it in beige ink. Then, on second piece of white paper, I stamped French Text again, and stamped three of the sea shells in teal ink, leaving space so I could cut them out in small squares. Then I punched out a mat a tiny bit bigger. I affixed the squares in to a strip of burlap ribbon, starting with the middle square, and stamped an additional shell on the card, over the seagrass. The verse is heat-embossed. I added a dot of Nuvo glitter drops in the top right corner of each shell square.

Whatcha Doin"?

This cute little Ghost and the verse Whatcha Doin'?  make the focal point for this card.  I then sponged on a light olive ink all over the card front framing the ghost.  I added deep purple ink over the top of that. Then I spritzed Dazzle Shimmering Bliss sprays to add some reactive qualities and some pale shimmer.   The addition of some lime rhinestones  add dimension to the card.

Life is a Journey!


Good morning everyone!  Today's card uses the Technique Junkies stamp set Enjoy the Ride.  I sprayed white card stock with Ocean Depth and Luscious Lawn Shimmering Bliss sprays.  I placed the Circles Make Circles stencil from A Colorful Life Stencils on top.  I sprayed Harvest Sunset Shimmering Bliss spray through the stencil.

I stamped the various modes of transportation randomly over the panel with black Versafine ink in my MISTI until I was happy with the ink applied.  Then I heat embossed with detail black embossing powder.  I spritzed the small panel for the verse with Ocean Depth Shimmering Bliss spray, stamped the verse and heat embossed. 

I used metallic paper to add the borders since it matched the spray.

Enjoy shopping knowing that you can get a 10% discount with my code TJ10Judy!
  Have a wonderful day, and get inky!

Not Afraid of Storms!

I love stamping, don't you?  I love the creativity of this craft. I enjoy seeing how you can combine stamps to create a lovely card.  For this card I used Technique Junkie stamps Learning to Sail and Textured Newsprint to create this card.  I sponged blue ink over the newsprint and used sponge daubers for the flowers, leaves, ship, sea, and sky.  Then I used my Art Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua pen to add simmer here and there. I used a Copic marker on the compass.

Remember you can get 10% off your entire order from the Technique Junkies website by using the code TJ10Judy!

Have a wonderfully creative day -- and get inky!

Congratulations!

I love techniques. It is what drew me to Technique Junkies in the first place.   So when Tim Holtz came out with a new product this year called Alcohol Ink Lift,  I knew I had to have to have it.   I  used a variety of fall colors of alcohol inks on a blending tool on glossy paper.  When it was DRY (I heat set it) I applied the alcohol lift ink to the TJ Autumn Doodles stamp and pressed it down over the alcohol ink on the glossy paper.  I used the Misty so I could get good even pressure because of my recent shoulder surgery.  
Then this is the FUN part!  I then applied this stamp to a sheet of Neenah Classic Solar white card stock in my Misty - and TA-DA!  The image transferred.  The transferred image (above) became the front of the card, and the "lift off" piece became the inside piece.  

Isn't this a cool look!  This card was mailed away to my niece who just graduated with her Bachelor's in Nursing.  So proud of her!     The verses are from Technique Junkies stamp sets Grand Greetings and Simple Sentiments 2-a.  

Now this is an important day - do you know why?  This is the last day to get the automatic 15% off automatic discount on all of the September Release stamps!  Have you shopped yet?  Don't let this deal pass you buy! 

And you can double your discount with my personal code TJ10Judy which gets you 10% off of everything else on the TJ website! 


So then happy shopping! and get inky!

Quoth the Raven!

When I saw this Ephemeral Crow stamp I knew I wanted it.  My first thought when I saw it was the quote from the poem The Raven by Edgar Alan Poe.  So I took this quote and typed it out using vellum to print it on.  It is NOT a stamp.  I ran the torn vellum through my small Xyron machine for the adhesive.

The Technique Junkies background stamp is called Old Wall.  I added color by using sponge daubers and dye based inks.  I wanted a soft look to the card.  I spritzed the raven lightly with Dazzle Shimmering Bliss.  

It is a fun card.  Please remember than you get a 15% automatic discount on every single September release stamp through September 8.

And you can a 10% discount on everything else using the TJ10Judy code when you check out. A double bargain for now!  But that ends at the end of September 8.  You can still get the 10% the rest of the month however.


It's a great shopping day, so get inky!

For Sale!! Stamps! Some with Matching Dies! Bigz Dies!! Punches!!


I am down sizing in several rooms in my house.  I have quite a small room for my stamp/craft room.  I must create more space for  storage.  Therefore, I have gone through my stamps, dies, and punches and decided what I can get rid of and YOU will be the beneficiary of my purging!

All of those things in the title are for sale in Grab Bag Priority Flat Rate Mailing envelopes or medium boxes.

Every flat rate envelope has 2 Bigz Dies.  Every Priority Flat rate box has 3-4 Bigz dies. Some are "plain" Sizzix and some are Tim Holtz dies.

Stampin' Up!
Artistic Out Post
Our Daily Bread
Sweet and Sassy Stamps
Chapel Road
Impression Obsession

and more.

Each box would easily have a value of  over $150.  The envelopes would have a value of at least $75.  Every box will have a variety of stamps.  No box will have all Stampin' Up stamps. There are seasonal stamps - fall, spring, Winter, and Christmas. There are background and shadow stamps.  I tried to put some in each box.   I tried to make sure every box has one of those seasonal stamps in the box.  Every box will have a selection of word stamps -- just words. Almost all of the stamps are in plastic bags.  The few stamp sets with matching dies are in a Stampin' Up DVD case.  All stamps are clear mount for acrylic blocks.  Most are red rubber (or purple or blue rubber)) and some are polymer.   Some have the index on the back of the stamp and some do not. Every box has at least 2 punches. There are a variety. The priority envelopes have no punches because of the size.

I have jam packed every box and every envelope with as many stamps as I could  cram in there.  You can see the bulging of the priority envelopes! Each box or envelope is taped securely so that things will ship to you securely.  This is a smoke free and pet free home.
