Goofy Stuff

I used two Technique Junkies stamps for this card. Neither are August releases. The stamps I used are: Goofy Stuff -  , and Old Friends - .   .  There is a verse that comes on the Old Friends stamps and it is a good one.  But I cut it off years ago so the stamp would be more versatile. The scene is colored with my Copic markers and the sky is sponged. I added some coordinating Prills in the corners to add visual interest as the embellishment.   

This would make a wonderful birthday card!

Have a terrific day and get inky.

Meet Me

This card was created with 3 different Technique Junkies Stamps:
And an August release Planks -  .

The fishing boat was colored with my Copic markers, and the torn cardstock of the boat was spnged with green and then layered on white vellum as a layer behind it. The planks were sponged over with color from several brown Distress Inks.  The verse was stamped and heat embossed on brown vellum and the vellum was torn and double layered.  The vellum was adhered with one of my Xyron machines.

Have a great day and get inky!

Running the Show

I used the newly released Technique Junkies Stamp "Running the Show" -  - to created this card.  I stamped it with Memento black ink and used my Chameleon Colortone Pencils -
- to add the color. 

I tore the image and sponged color around the edges to match the card stock for the base card. I framed the focal image with silver glitter paper, and layered that on music themed background paper.   I added some shimmer  to the night time sky with my Wink of Stella pen.

Have a wonderful day and get inky!

Washi tape and self adhesive pearls embellish the left side of the card.  I sponged color here and there, and added highlights of color using Wasted and Veined Marble.  I used Copic Markers to color the few facial features.

Running the Show

This is a neat stamp from the TJ August release  calling Running the Show -    I used a star embossing folder and silver glitter paper as a layer here and there.   I used my Copic markers to color the image and my Wink of Stella pen to highlight the stars in the image.

Jungle Foliage

I painted the Technique Junkies Stamps August Release of Rainforest - - with Twinkling H2Os.  I used my MISTI so I could over stamp sections of the image to add back in the lines as some of the H2Os can be relatively opaque.

I heat embossed a verse from Mae West Sentiments -  on vellum and then doubled the vellum so you could sort of see the image  beneath and yet it allowed the verse to stand out.  I adhered the vellum with my Xyron machine.

Have a wonderful day, and get inky!

Strong Women

Do you ever get stumped when stamping new images?  I think we all do at times.  I admit I was a "late" converter to Pinterest. But i have used it now lots of times for ideas for my house and for my stamping.  I only use it as a "idea maker" and never CASE it completely

My card here uses parts of several Technique Junkies stamps.  The August release stamp on this card is Strong Women -   .  I used Copic markers, sponging, Nuvo Glitter Markers, and Smooch paints.


Other TJ stamps I used are Let's Face It 4 -  ; Key Scripts - ; Dragonfly Collage

Have a great day and get inky!

You Are a Blessing

To create this card, I used a die cut to cut a large circle from a  sticky all over note pad.  I placed the outside of the circle  and sponged the inside of he circle.  I used a long post-it-note and covered up the bottom section of the circle.  Then I heat embossed the giraffes and the tree.

For this card I used the Technique Junkies August Release of Savannah Giraffes -  ; and one of the greetings from Grand Greetings -  .  This is a wonderful set of greetings for several occasions. 

This was a fairly easy card to create. I hope you will try something similar.  

Have a great day and get inky!

An Adventure!

I used this beautiful Technique Junkies stamp called Rain Forest -  for this card.  I used markers and colored the stamp die -- (direct to stamp) and huffed on the stamp to re- moisten the ink.  I used a MISTI to press the stamp to the paper, so that as more color and ink was needed I could add the color and be sure of the placement. I used the thin end of of a darker marker and added details to leaves.  I used flower  and leaves die cuts to add interest and texture. I used Nuvo Glitter markers to add some sparkle to the ends of the flower stamens.  I stamped a verse from the Technique Junkies set Road Trip -   .  The verse was heat embossed. 

Have a great day and get inky!

Now on to my projects for this hop.  The Technique Junkie August release stamp on this card is Strong Women -  The verse is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The three women's faces were stamped with Memento ink and colored in with my Copic markers. The women's faces are from the TJ set called Beautiful Faces - .  I also used the Paper Piecing technique for the headdresses of the women and placed the headdress on each woman as I stamped the image. .  I stamped the same face three times on "post it notes" that have sticky stuff all over the back of the paper.  I stamped the middle face first, covered it with the "mask," and then stamped the lower face image.  I covered it with a mask and stamped the third woman.   Then I covered it with a mask.  After all of the women's faces were covered with a mask, I then used Art Anthology Colorations spray to color the background -  I added some die cut leaves in three corners. 

I created this card with some layering of die cuts and die cuts of grass.  I used Technique Junkies August release of  Savannah Giraffes - ;  and an older TJ  stamp called Mama and Baby -  .    I stamped and heat embossed the giraffes and tree, and created the sky with sponging.  I fussy cut the baby elephant and adhered it to the top frame.  I used the verse Kindness Matters -    - on the grass. The two top layers are popped up with foam tape.

Ostriches are funny creatures.  They are classified as birds because they have feathers but cannot fly.  Their bodies just not have an aerodynamic shape for flying.  Both stamps used here from the Technique Junkies August Release - Your Kind of Crazy  ; and Planks -  .   I used Copic markers to color the ostriches.  The planks were heat embossed and then painted with Twinkling H2Os.

My last card uses the Technique Junkies stamp Rainforest -
I used Chameleon Colortone pencils ( )
to color in the rainforest leaves and such.  I stamped the image twice and colored and fussy cut some of the leaves and popped them up using some foam tape. I also die cut some flowers and additional leaves.  I sponged color on both the flowers and the leaves to add additional dimension to both.
