Window Pines


I used two  Technique Junkies stamps to create this card.  I used Fir Forest and Merry Christmas 2 which were stamped on a panel  and placed behind  die cut window.  The sky was sponged on it first.  The top layer is a panel dry embossed with a  snowflake embossing folder.   White pearls were added to the center of some of the snowflakes.  Dazzle Simmering Bliss spray was added to the top layer.

The words Merry Christmas were stamped with black Versafine ink and heat embossed  with detail black embossing powder.  

The bottom of this card is an A2 sized dark moss green piece of card stock.   The main part of the card is 4 inches by 11 1/4 inches.  It is scored in half and then after the card is ready to mount, it is adhered to the green card stock.  The inside greeting is stamped on the inside of the folded white card stock.

If Hugs Were Snowflakes

Even at Christmas time we all can use a hug!  So this verse is just fine for Christmas as well. The Technique Junkies Stamps I used for this card are Fir Forest and Snowflakes.    I used Dazzle Shimmering Bliss topper over the smaller panel with the trees to add a bit of delightful shimmer.   Dark brown and copper card stock were used as layers for this card.

Learning to Sail!

This Alcohol Lift card was created with Technique Junkies stamp Learning to Sail.   The lift portion is on the right and the stamped off version from the lift off is on the left.  This technique creates a cool card.  It works best when the image has strong defined lines or is a silhouette.

Merry Christmas - Day 30 of the 30 Days of Christmas!!


It is the wonderful season of the 30 Days of Christmas for Technique Junkies from October 15 to November 13.   There is a 20% discount on all Christmas Stamps on the Technique Junkies web store!    And this is the LAST DAY to get that 20% discount off of Christmas stamps. And to combine my TJ10Judy discount code with it.  That saves you 30%!!!  Don't miss this opportunity to save some money.

I used stamps from three different sets from Technique Junkies Stamps.   The vintage town is Night City Panel,   Snowflakes,  and Gifts of Christmas. 

The snowflakes were randomly stamped leaving space at the bottom for the verse.  The Night City Panel was stamped first on a white panel and then die cut with a circle die.  The die cut circle was lightly spritzed with Dazzle Shimmering Bliss Topper spray and quickly heat set so the ink would not run.

It is the wonderful season of the 30 Days of Christmas for Technique Junkies from October 15 to November 13.   There is a 20% discount on all Christmas Stamps on the Technique Junkies web store!  


I used a snowflake embossing folder and Nuvo glitter drops for the center of several snowflakes.   I used three Technique Junkies Stamps.  I used  Fir Forest, All is Calm, and one bird from Fly

I stamped the tree line, and die cut the circle.  I punched out a circle of post it note paper and placed it where it would cover part of the the tree line.Then I sponged in the navy sky.  I removed the moon mask, and chose one bird  and a navy marker to ink only that bird and stamped it on the moon.  I used a white get pen to add highlights of snow on the branches. I added ribbon on background and assembled the card.

My first card uses All is Calm and Fir Forest.  I also used Circle Mosaic Stencil from A Colorful Life Stencils. to create the sky.  I used Ocean Depth Shimmering Bliss sprayed over the stencil.  Torn white card stock created the snow banks  edged with a bit of "fake snow" over glue at the edges.


My second card uses the newly released Snowflakes stamped in two colors of a narrow panel of white card stock.  Punched circles frame the greeting stamped with navy blue ink. The greeting stamp is A Very Merry ChristmasDazzle Shimmering Bliss topper is misted over the snowflakes gives a delightful shimmer.

My last card used a new release that is not necessarily a "Christmas" stamp but I used it that way. It is called Music Opens the Soul.   The other stamps on the card are O Holy Night and Star Stream.   The stamp Music Opens the Soul is stamped on copper text weight paper.  All stamps were heat embossed with maroon embossing powder.  I sprayed that card stock with  Harvest Sunset Shimmering Bliss.
