Oldie but Goodie - Out of the Nestie Box

Hi Junkies, Tricia here.  I made this card for my girlfriends birthday using this really cool Saturated Canary digi colored with copics.  I used my distress inks to create a background to match.  I cut her out using the Out of the Nestie Box technique...always a go to technique especially if you are trying to show off as much of the background as possible.

I love this Impression Obsession background stamp which is so versatile I love that I keep going back to it.  Don't you love when you can use your stamps for all different cards?

I hope you have a crafty day and thanks so much for stopping by today.

TOTW - Silver On Gold

Hi Junkies, Tricia here with this week's technique of the week "Silver On Gold".

This technique is so cool!  I love how the background is so shimmery.  (I wish it was light out so I could take a better pic, it's so much cooler IRL).   I think it would be great on Christmas Cards (I need to start these...lol).

The background stamp I used on this one is from Stampin Up! and the sentiment is from Gina K Designs.  I really didn't want to cover up the background too much so I left it as it is.

I hope you will join us this week and play along...can't wait to see what you create!

Have a crafty day!

Technique Junkie Leaf Stamps

There are two seasons of the year that make me think bout leaves.  One is spring, and after winter I am more than ready to see Spring's green leaves.   But Fall or Autumn really makes me think about leaves! Colorful leaves, green leaves, cascades of leaves.  They can be so very, very beautiful.

So I have five cards for you today -- all of them feature leaf stamps from Technique Junkie stamps. All word stamps are also from Technique Junkie stamps. Enjoy!

Get inky today!

Background Stained Glass

Good morning friends.  It's Beth Norman here with this week's Technique of the Week, Background Stained Glass.  My lovely background stamp is one of the many background stamps from the Technique Junkies Stamps.  The sentiment is also from the Technique Junkies Stamps. 

I stamped out my background stamp and coloured with Copic markers.  The sentiment uses the Whisped Frames technique, one of my go-to techniques.

I've enjoyed seeing the DT members and subscribers have been doing with this technique and hope to see yours soon too. 

Have a great week!

Brayered Rub-Ons

Hello again, It's Jackie K  with an example of the Brayered Rub-Ons Technique!
You can find it in this years Feb/Mar Issue.
                                          A little early for a Halloween card you may be thinking?
Well, not if you have 12 grandchildren like I do. Mind you, the oldest is 27 years old but he still gets a card as do all the others for every occasion. What are crafty grandmothers for after all?
I have not inserted the card yet because for some unknown reason the computer won't put it where I want it so bear with me. I am going to give you the details and then insert the card.
I used colored rub-ons for this card which led me to thinking...you really could use stickers if you had to.
I would tell you the maker of these rub-ons but in my ever effort to be tidy I threw out the packaging before I wrote the details down. I CAN tell you that the ghost that was stamped on vellum is from Stampendous. I have had this stamp for eons and I still smile whenever I use it. I brayered over the card with ColorBox Amber pigment ink.
OK so after wading through all this verbage, I hope you are not disappointed in the card.  Thanks for looking and I will see you in two weeks!
