I love being on the Design Team for Technique Junkies!  I get to share all kinds of fun stamps with you, and introduce you to great sales! Well, if you haven't already heard, TJ is have a 35% off inventory reduction sale right now. Lots of stamps are in this section. And I can hook you up with another 10% off, which gives you a 45% DISCOUNT on these stamps.

How do you get that extra 10% you ask? Just enter my special code TJ10Ro at checkout. That's it. Voila! You just cranked a 45% discount! And that 10% code is good for any other goodies you may want to grab for yourself as well.

I've made a card with some of the stamps available in this sale, plus it's a break from all the Christmas cards you've been seeing. 

Here are the stamp sets I used to create this great Father's Day card:


I cut the sentiment apart so I didn't have to mask it for this card, but kept it can easily be put back together on a stamp block or MISTI (you can save 10% on the purchase of the MISTI by using my code). 

Any of these labels would have worked on this card. 


This stamp is not in the clearance section; however, you can still save 10% on this stamp by using the code above. And it goes great with the Incrediball Labels set!

So, to make this card, I assembled all my layers (if you need more details, just leave me a comment) except for the cream colored CS. I stamped the jar image in a soft gray. I added the label in a dark brown. Then using sticky notes, I roughly masked off the jar and label so I could stamp the hats in various colors. 

I stamped the word "Hats" on the label, and "DAD" on the other piece of cream CS. Those were then attached in the proper areas of the card.

I even did the inside of the card:

For the inside, I added another piece of cream CS stamped with Happy Father's Day. I know that's a few months off yet. But this could easily be a guy's birthday card with just a little change of sentiment.

Hope you got some inspiration today. Go check out that sale! I'm sure you will find lots more inspiration and maybe the desire to treat yourself to a few cool stamps at a great discounted price!

Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!

Winter brrr

 Brrr is the word of the Day I think. Hello all, Kia here with you today to share this winter card.

I am using an image and sentiment from the "Let's Chill" set, which consists of  4 different Penguins and 3 sentiments, and is super cute.
 I stamped the Penguin using Memento Ink and coloured with Copic Markers. I then added the stencil from A Colorful Life called Heart Flakes to my background, brushing around the Penguin image, and using Distress Oxide Ink in Wilted Violet. 
The sentiment is stamped in the black again, and I added some Nuvo Crystal drops to the centre of the flakes for a bit of sparkle.

This was such a fun card to make and I hope you have enjoyed it as well.

Frosty the Snowman ... and a HUGE SALE!

Technique Junkies Inventory Reduction Sale!

Take another 10% off by using the code TJ10Stephanie
The total discount amount on the sale items is a whopping 45%!

How to redeem…

Select items in the Inventory Reduction Category – they will be discounted automatically in your shopping cart 35%
use discount code TJ10Stephanie at checkout 
to save an additional 10% off!

Some of my favorites that are included in the clearance are:

Today I made a card for the current theme challenge at The Paper Players ... to make a Snowman Card.

I thought the adorable Snowman Stamp was perfect, since he is also dressed in a Scarf & Hat like the cutie in the photograph.

I started by creating a *snowy* background using the Grunge Dots Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs with white texture paste.

Next I stamped the snowman on white cardstock, colored his hat, scarf, buttons & nose with Spectrum Noir Markers, and added glossy accents to the buttons and his eyes before detail cutting him out.  I'm also joining the SNOW Challenge at Use Your Stuff (can't even tell you how old that Embossing Paste was from my stash ... felt so good to use it ... and that fabulous stencil was still sitting in my studio unopened).

How cute is that round little guy.  Sentiment is from Victorian Greetings.

Remember, even if stamps aren't included in the clearance, my discount code TJ10Stephanie still gets you 10% off.
