I just love this new technique called Smooch Painting on the CD 8. Have you ordered yours yet? Email Pat Huntoon to order CD8 right away! It is such an elegant way to use those yummy Smooch paint colors. And they are so nice and easy to work with.
The pear stamp is by Rubber Stampede and the words are from A Stamp in the Hand. I stamped the words on a teal green vellum I have had in my paper stash for years and years. Isn't it fun when you actually can match papers from your stash? The delicious teal shimmer paper can be purchased from Paper Temptress. The bling are actually faux bad stickers.
This is an ATC I created for a swap and I had fun creating this ATC!
Have a great stamping day!

The Ghostie stamp is from I Brake For Stamps; the sentiment is Amuse. I've had my eye on that little guy for quite some time. He sure was fun to color with my Copic markers. I also had the chance to pull out my Copic airbrush--that always makes for a good day!
Speaking of good days.....go have one!

My husband and I have the pleasure of grandchildren. While we had our own three children and we enjoyed them very much -- those of you who are grandparents know there is just something special about grandchildren! My youngest grandchild is a boy - Ruben - and he lives with his Mommy and Daddy in Sighisoara, Romania. His parents are missionaries there. So we do not get to see them very often -- but Skype is a wonderful tool!

HI TJ friends. Happy Saturday!! Kathie McGuire here to show you an old/favorite technique of mine.
Today's card is the ever popular Tri Shutter card that I can't seem to stop making!! I adore the folds and cuts which give me so many little pallettes to display some of my favorite TJ techniques.
The featured technique today is Pencil-Over-Marker, an old favorite of mine from the 2/05 newsletter. I thought it was the perfect technqiue to use on the rose images.
I hope you're off to a great weekend. And remember, make a good weekend even better--go stamp something!!

Hello Thursday, and hello stampers! It's time for the Technique Junkie Newsletter's TRY THAT TECHNIQUE challenge. This week Diana Enns and I challenged each other to use the Cuttlebug Highlights technique which is from the October 2008 issue.This week's card not only uses the Cuttlebug Highlights technique, but I also snuck in the Waxy Cuttlebug technique as well. Who can resist putting the two of them together.
Cuttlebug Highlights were created in turquoise and used in my background, and the Waxy Cuttlebug was used in the foreground. The turquoise heart and background for the sentiment are also the Waxy Cuttlebug.
My main image is from Hero Arts and the other stamps are from Stampin Up!
Each week, you are invited to submit a card using the technique of the week, This week we feature the Cuttlebug Highlights Technique. Post your card on the Design Junkie blog post where I highlight this technique. You can also submit it to the Technique Junkie Newsletter yahoo group as well. We love to see your stuff.
Last week we highlighted the Fossil Stone technique. CONGRATULATIONS Francine JD Groulx, your Fossil Stone card is now on the homepage. Don't forget, for your chance to win a week on the home page, all you have to do is submit a card using this week's challenge technique.
