Pink Faith Chrysanthemums

Did you see the gorgeous new Technique Junkies August 2020 release yesterday?  I'm using some more of those beautiful new stamps on this card today.  I stamped the Chrysanthemums with a pink ink onto pink cardstock - isn't that gorgeous?  I love this background!  Then I stamped the sentiment using words from the new Love, Faith, and Peace set.  You can mix and match the words for a different sentiment as needed.  That's a really neat feature for this set.  

Go check out the great new stamps at Technique Junkies.  All of the new August release stamps are on sale for 15% off until August 8.  You can use my code, TJ10Holly, to save an extra 10% for a total of 25% off all of the new August release stamps.  Have fun shopping!

Come Sit on the Porch

Come sit on the porch.  The weather may be hot but the drinks are cold.

This is such a wonderful stamp.  I just love these background sentiment stamps that Technique Junkies sell.  This one is called Sit on the Porch.  I'm giving this to a girlfriend to tell her my cozy balcony, complete with cozy seating and many cushions, will soon be open for a visit.

I think we are all trying to get used to COVID and social distancing, especially on our porch's and balconies.

Have a great week!

Last day of Christmas in July!

Today is the last day of Christmas in July! The coupon for 25% off all Christmas stamps will expire at midnight on Juy 27th (today). Don't miss out on the savings! Use code JULYXMAS to save.

Today's card uses Just Squeezed, Festive Flamingo, Silver and Thulian Pink Shimmering Bliss in the background. To add dashes of silver, I took the nozzle off and tapped the straw end onto the card stock to make splashes.  The focal image is Perfect Blend - colored with colored pencils and the words traced with Kaisercraft Glitter Markers.

I hope you have enjoyed our Christmas in July event - I will be announcing the winner of the random drawing with tomorrow's post!

Christmas in July - last two days!

We are in the last two days of Technique Junkies' Christmas in July, and I have a one layer card for you today!

I used the Silent Night Stamp with brown ink on Kraft card stock, then Over-stamped it with the holly from the Season's Greetings Set. I colored the holly sprig with alcohol markers, then used Diamond Glaze over the top (also known as Glass Glaze, Glossy Accents, etc) to give it a shiny 3-D texture.

Today and tomorrow are the last two days to save 25% on Technique Junkies Christmas stamps using the code JULYXMAS. Don't miss out!

Have a great Sunday,
Pat Huntoon
