I hope you are shopping in the Christmas Category of Technique Junkies stamps so you can automatically save 20% on the stamps!

I had some of this lovely pine background paper and the Cardinal stamp would be beautiful on it.  I stamped and watercolored the image and then fussy cut the cardinal and some of the branches.  I die cut some pine needles and adhered them to the card front.  Then I used Puffy Snow liquid and heat embossed it.  The greeting is from Victorian Greetings - set of 6.

Day 15 of Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas

The 30 Days of Christmas are marching right along!


Sometimes simple cards are just the right thing to do.  Especially when you are making Christmas cards -- easy to make multiples of are a good idea!  The scene is actually done with an embossing folder. I sponged dye based ink over the embossed sections adding color.  The verse is All is Calm. I wanted it to be heat embossed.  I first inked the stamp with Versamark, and then inked it with the same brown ink I sponged with.  Then i stamped, colored it with clear embossing powder, and heated it.  You can do this same thing with any color dye based ink. 

Lastly I spritzed the card front with Dazzle Shimmering Bliss Topper.

Remember all stamps in the Christmas category are 20% off through November 22.  


When you stack TJ10Judy in the coupon box you save an additional 20%!  So go shopping.

Have a wonderful day and get inky!!

Day 5 of the Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas!




I used Christmas Lights and one of the lovely verse stamps from Gifts of Christmas.   The lights were colored in with Copic markers.  The greeting was heat embossed with detail black embossing powder.   And a few green sequins were added.

I decided to cut the Christmas lights into two pieces, and I very carefully cut them apart leaving the rubber attached so i could easily put it back together like a puzzle.  Then it would stamp as though it had never been cut apart.  That is how i created the space in the middle.

Who likes to save money?  I do and I am sure you do as well.  Use TJ10Judy when you place your order and save 10%!
 Have a tremendous day -- and get inky!

My Grandmother and My Father


This  is a card I created a long time ago. And I made two of these cards.  One was mailed to my sister.  I kept the other one and have been unable to mail it or to part with it.  The reason is that is a picture of my grandmother and my father when he was about 3 years old.  So this picture was taken in about 1909. 

I used a technique called Tin Type from a longtime ago. Some of the materials used to make the card are unable to be purchased any more.  

Have a great day -- and get inky.

Learn to Surf


I used Pom Pom Swag on top of Alcohol inks using the Lift ink from Ranger.  I heat embossed the verse Learn to Surf  with detail black embossing powder.   I decided to use the verse because the end result with the Pom Pom Swag looked like the ocean foam to me.  I added a few sequins for embellishments.

Grant Me Serenity


I used Pom Pom Swag and Serenity Cross for this card, both of which are Technique Junkies Stamps.  To create the background I used Antique Glimmers with Shimmering Bliss.  After I heat set it to dry I then stamped and heat embossed the Pom Pom Swag.  

I repeated the Antique glimmers with softer colors of the Shimmering Bliss, and stamped the image over the dry card stock.
