Amazing Grace!

 I used A Colorful Life Stencil -  -  and Art Nuvo Mousse -  --
 to create the background.   The verse is Technique Junkies Stamp Amazing Grace - - and is heat embossed with gold embossing powder on vellum.  I tore around the verse and ran the vellum through my Xyron machine to place adhesive on the reverse side.

Just Wing It!

This was a fun card to make.  I used this lacy stencil from A Colorful Life Stencils - . I used layers of color with Nuvo Mousse - . I used several shades of blues and purples. The Technique Junkies Stamps is called Just Wing It - .  The skin, eye brows, and eyelashes are colored with Copic markers.  Then I used the same lovely shimmery NuvoMousse colors to add eye shadow -- so fun!

I have this lovely fringe yarn in my collections and thought the shades were just perfect for this feminine and frilly card.  

I had fun creating this card and hope you like it!

Sympathy Card

This is a very simple sympathy card.  I used an embossing folder  and a die card for the main features.  Both of these are from Stampin' Up!  The verse is stamped and embossed and is from Our Daily Bread. 

I am in the last days of being Florida for the winter and will be heading back to Pennsylvania in about 10 days. And during this time I have had four families I have know for years and years  experience the loss of a parent, a husband, or a sibling.  So I have needed to create sympathy cards for these good friends.  Such loss is always hard to deal with. 

Have a great day!  And get inky!

I used Technique Junkies Stamps Fairy Tale Flowers -
to create this card.  I used Copic markers to color the image.  

All three layers are stamped at once.  I used a MISTI to stamp this so that I could re-ink and stamp again until all of the image was clearly stamped.  Then the underlying layer was added for all three layers.  The top two layers were wrapped with fibers and then the Technique Junkies verse Heart of the Home -  - was stamped and heat embossed on  vellum.  It was adhered with adhesive from my Xyron machine.

Remember  you can get a 10% discount by using the TJ10Judy code.

These two new Technique Junkies Stamps are just plain fun to use.  I used All Shapes -  and  Stencil Rings -

The sky and grass are sponged.  I used Copic Markers to color the image.  The rings were colored with the broad brush of dye based markers.  I inked the entire image with a pale green to start with, and then added other colors randomly several times.
