Faux Designer Paper 2 ~~ by Judy Jackson




Good day from Judy Jackson!




This is a totally different way to create Faux Designer paper than the the original technique -- which I love -- and I think this newer technique creates just as lovely Faux Designer Paper!




I used stamps from the following companies: Stampers Anonymous, Stampin' Up, Sweet and Sassy Stamps, and Judikins.




Think about the stamps you own -- don't you have some lovely stamps you could use to create some Faux Designer Paper? Be sure and show us what you have done!




I hope your Thanksgiving was lovely.




Are you getting inky today?

Tee Pee for Christmas

Ann Clack here with a cool Christmas themed Tee Pee card.
This 'card' was created using one of the techniques on the new 3D and Fun Folds CD. Isn't it fun?!! Make sure you don't miss out!  Get it today!!   The images are from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. I just love this little mouse, don't you? I have a picture of each side as well as an angle picture for you. Each side is like a little card all of its own. They were all colored with Copic markers.

Teabag Holder


Hello Junkies,
Hetty here with a lovely
project from the new 
And if you do not already have it, it is
a lovely gift with over 70 projects
for gifts for your friends or keep for yourself.

This time I made the Double Teabagholder.
I thought it would make a nice hostess gift
or you could give it to everyone at the
table for tea and desert.

I made this teabagholder with Club Scrap papers and stamps.
They are all from the Comfort Zone kit.
For the turkey I used the SU! owl punch and a few others
to complete this project. The rosette on the back is
made with a Tim Holtz alterations die. I added some dark
brown distress ink and sprayed some marshmellow
glimmermist on it.
 Here you can see the inside of the teabagholder.
I can asure you, it is a fairly easy project.

Here in The Netherlands, we do not
celebrate Thanksgiving, but I want to say I am
thankful to have all of  you as my online stampingfriends.
I hope you all have a wonderful dinner
and I wish you

Home Frame - Using Morphed Tag Title from Scrapbook CD


This is Judy Jackson sharing this project. I apologize for the flash shine in the picture - I tried several ways to take the picture and this one was the best. :(

I have been in "stamping withdrawal" for a few weeks. I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand the end of October -- and I am definitely right handed! Very little ambidextrous here! That was a real shock that I wasn't going to be allowed to stamp due to the pressure of the block on the palm of the hand. That was a bummer let me tell you! However, it is healing well and I am very thankful for that. I have the left hand done on November 30 but that shouldn't affect stamping at all! I do not hold a block in my left hand!

Our daughter and son-in-law (and our 3 young granddaughters) are buying their very first home! After renting for years this is a big move for them. In October I saw a sign in a store with this sentiment and my husband and I wanted to give them a housewarming gift with this sentiment. I wanted to make it "myself" and of course craft it! Waiting to make the sign was hard until the surgeon said I could stamp "a little bit." (Very few hand made Christmas cards this year.)

I used grunge board to cut out the letters in HOME, printed the sentiment on vellum, stamped the verses on the tags (all Stampers Anonymous) - which all have to do with "love" and "home," and pulled out all the technique stops for this project. The tags are a morphed idea form the Tag Title technique from the TJ Scrapbooking CD. I used Distress Stains on the letters, on the mat board, and used the Antique Glimmer technique to distress the background paper. I used both the TJ Smooched Metal technique and acrylic paint to add color the metal embellishments, lots of glimmer spray here and there. I used a fair amount of ribbon and lace - coloring the ribbon and lace with Distress Inks and distress Stains.

I am very pleased with the results -- and I hope they are too!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone! Make it a crafty one!

Faux Washi and Distress Watercolor Card and Bookmark







Hello My TJ Friends!

Kathie McGuire here with you today on your stamping Saturday.

Today I'm sharing a project I made with some new Strong Stamps designs.I began my card design by making a Faux Washi (8-11 TJ newsletter) and attaching it to my base card. Since Faux Washi's vary in the end results, I made the background first and then selected coordinating Distress Inks to match when I painted the bookmark.

The bookmark was stamped with white embossing powder on watercolor paper and heat set. Then, I used the Distress Watercolor technique (coming up in the 12-11 TJ newsletter) to color it to match.

I added a few fibers to it, then used a Stampin' Up Word Window punch for the slot the bookmark fit into.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Happy Turkey Day next week to you and yours.

Copic Resist by Judy Jackson





Greetings from Judy Jackson!






Ahh, November -- a time to remember to give thanks! I used these clear stamps from Sweet and Sassy Stamps to add that "thankful" tone to this card. The medallion stamp is from Two Nancys Art Stamps.






As the name of the technique indicates, I used Copic markers to add color to the focal image. Using the Copics with this technique give the image a softer appearance.






To learn how to actually do this technique -- subscribe to the Technique Junkie newsletter -- which is full of wonderful techniques.






Are you trying to decide about a Christmas gift for a stamping friend -- a gift subscription to the newsletter, a gift of CD 9 from the Technique Junkie newsletter, or the new 3D and Fun Folds CD would be a welcome gift!

Ann's gift card boxes



Ann Clack here!  I made a bunch of the gift card boxes from the recent 3-D  and Fancy Folds CD.  What an awesome CD.  The boxes were loved by many at my sale this weekend!  They were fast to make as well.  I had fun decorating the tops differently.  The picture below was my first time make the 'flower' with ribbon on an adhesive disk.  I didn't have the goober circles so I made my own with the ultra sticky double sided tape that I purchase from the man who makes our car club trophies.  Fun, Fun!

Top Note Purse By Judy Jackson




Hello from Judy Jackson!




This little purse is made to hold something special - a gift card, a party favor, or some special candies.




How did I make this little eland purse you ask? All of the detailed directions are on the 3D and Fun Fold TJ CD and how to buy it is on the side bar of this blog.




You can create an elegant purse or a casual purse or a funky purse depending on the paper you choose to use and the embellishments you add to give the purse that special touch! Wouldn't this be a special Christmas present to receive?




So I ask you -- have you ordered this CD yet? If not, then why not?




Blessings on you!

Decorated Clips

CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR A LARGER VIEW




Hello TJ Friends! Kathie McGuire here today to share a project from the 3D and Fun Folds CD. What a fantastic CD~it's a collection of some all-time favorites for me and if you don't have yours, you're missing out!

This project is the Decorated Clips project, and it's so easy and fun to do. You can use any embellishment, but I chose a small Cloisonne Dragonfly image from Strong Stamps. They were a perfect fit for my little clips and I still had some room to add bling.

These are such wonderful gifts and can be made in any theme. They cost only pennies a piece, but are loved and used by everyone I've given them to.

Try making some yourself...TODAY!

Thanks for stopping by!
