Thank you!

I used the fabulous new Technique Junkies Release Floral Framed Sentiments and a verse from Grand Greetings.  I heat embossed both the flowers and the  verse with  a glittery black embossing powder.  Everything was colored with Nuvo Glitter markers and then heat set to prevent smearing.

I fussy cut the flowers and popped them up above and below the verse. 

I have a friend who has been a very real help to me with a huge project and I will be sending her this card.

Wreath of Roses

To create this Wreath of Roses card I used two different rose stamps from Technique Junkies Stamps.  The center rose is a left over piece from a shaker card from the February 1 Blog Hop.  That is from Rose Frame.   I used Copic markers, dye based markers, and Shimmering Bliss Dazzle Topper to color the  rose in the circle.  I used Long Stemmed Rose for the roses around the edges.  The verse is Life Is Beautiful, also a Technique Junkies stamp.

I did not stamp of the stem because it would stick out beyond the rose in the middle.  I used the "numbers on a clock" to stamp these roses evenly.   I stamped one rose at 3:00, 6:00, 9:00, 12:00, and then one rose in between each of those.  

It is fun to see how you can use stamps in so many different ways.    So be creative and think how you use a stamp differently.. Then go shopping and save 10% on your TJ order when you use the coupon code TJ10Judy when you check out.

Have a wonderful day and take some time to get inky!

Happy Birthday!

This is a very versatile stamp set! It is a newly released Technique Junkies Stamps set called Floral Framed Sentiments.   I also used Technique Junkies Wasted to add interest on the base card.

Look at these useful verses!  How great to have them all in one set!  Another great thing about this set is if you have other verses that are different, you could add those verse in the space in between.  The two sets of floral images are so nice to color,  to watercolor, to emboss, spritz with Shimmering Bliss, almost anything!

Here are some other verse sets I think that could work with the floral images:
And there are many others that could work!  Look here!

Valentines for Grandies

I have a bunch of grandchildren and because I know my kids sometimes check my blog, I don't post the cards I send to family until after the occasion for which I am sending a card.   I used  die cut from Stampin' Up which is new this year and designer paper from a Valentine 6x6 inch stack.  The bird and heart stamp is from a recent Tonic kit, and the be my Valentine stamp is  a retired Stampin' Up stamp I bought at a garage sale a few years ago.   I keep it and the stamps that were in the box (not a set) with my supplies in Florida where I am now.   In the package for each family there will be a plastic tube of Valentine M&M's for each child.

I know these are not Technique Junkies stamps, but if you want to save 10% on your Technique Junkies stamp order use my code TJ10Judy.
Have a wonderful day and I hope your Valentine's Day was special, and now you have some time to get inky!!

My Glitter

I have friends and family who absolutely love their dogs like crazy.  I am not a dog person, or a cat person.  I am not a pet person at all.  They are nice, they can be cute, but they are just not for me.  And the saying on the card is something they would all embrace.   Dog hair is something they don't mind and in fact embrace.  I used Technique Junkies Stamps Duty of Love and Dog Hair to create this card.  I used a home made cloud stencil for the sky.

Need a Hug?

 The Technique Junkies newly released stamp Just a Hug was stamped on the top white panel, and then I used a lace border punch on the bottom of this panel.  I sprayed Shimmering Bliss Dazzle Topper Spray over the top and very quickly heat set it to prevent the ink from running badly.  Some glitter punched hearts add the embellishments.

Duty of Love

I used the newly released Technique Junkies Stamp Duty of Love and stamped it all across the bottom on the top layer of this card. Then I used a homemade cloud stencil to add the sky in the background.  Adding a few hearts to embellish the card finishes the card.   The dogs were colored with Copic markers.

Loverly New Stamps In the Month of Love!

And today is the wonderful release day for Technique Junkies February Release stamps.   And we have a Blog Hop!  See the entire line up of Design Team's blog web addresses near the bottom of this blog post.

While this is the month we designate to celebrate "Love" -- love can be all kinds of love not just romantic love,  but love for your children, love for your grandchildren, and love for your friends.  So I have some cards for you on this release day to celebrate love which enriches our lives in all kinds of ways.  

My first card uses the Technique Junkies stamp - Rose Frame.  I stamped it twice.  Once for the top layer of this shaker card and once for the underneath layer of this shaker card.  I saved the die cut section of the rose from the top layer for another card which I will share with you later this month. On a nonporous surface I sprayed  a couple of shades of pink and red Technique Junkies Shimmering Bliss sprays.  I used the pooled sprays to watercolor the rose and  some green and blue sprays to finish the painting. I used foam strips to lift up the top layer with acetate secured under the window.  Then I put some iridescent hearts in the area for the shaker items.  I used just the word LOVE from the Technique Junkies stamp Duty of Love. I spritzed the top layer with Technique Junkies Shimmering Bliss Dazzle Topper Spray before securing the acetate in the window.

For my second card I used a stamp from the Technique Junkies Stamps  January release called Joy in Your Journey.  I cut out the words from the stamp and positioned the new Technique Junkies Stamp called Heart Compass in the upper right hand corner.   But that eliminated some of the "skritches" found on the Joy in Your Journey stamp.   So i used just sections from the Technique Junkies Wasted stamp to fill in the blank spot. I sprayed the top of the stamped image with a few colors of Technique Junkies Shimmering Bliss Sprays.   Then I used Nuvo Glitter Markers to highlight different areas on the stamped image.   

I used an elegant embossing folder sprayed with  Shimmering Bliss Dazzle Topper Spray to give it a glistening look. The newly released Technique Junkies  Stamp Just A Hug on pink card stock I used a Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Pen to add shimmer to the heart. I wrapped the embossed panel layer with pink ribbon, added a bow, and adhered the cut out heart.  

And here is one more card and it does not feature hearts or "love."
When I saw this newly released Techniques Junkies Sparkle All Day stamp, I immediately thought of this lady and her (as I view it) sparkly outfit!  The Technique Junkies lady stamp is from the set The Rules.  I used the A Colorful Life Stencil called Scribble Roses.  To add color to both stamp and the stencil I used Shimmering Bliss Mermaid spray, and Nuvo Glitter markers.
