Shoot For The Moon

Hi.  Lynda Joy here, with a card for this last day of May.  Tomorrow we will be showing cards for the June new stamps release.
I used the  stamp.  I stamped the Shoot For The Moon image onto white card stock, and colored with Arteza real brush markers. 

I used some glitter film over the image to give it sparkle, then layered it onto a card.  

Inside:  I used the Have Faith In Your Dreams stamp for the inside of the card.

That's it for today.  I hope you enjoyed the May release.  
Now come on back tomorrow for the June Release and blog hop!

Stand Tall

Hello everyone,
It's Ceal here to share a card with you today using a stamp from the February release Giraffe Print and I paired it up with the Why Fit In

You can save 10% on these stamps and your entire order by using my code TJ10Ceal

To create this card, I started with a white top folding card base and stamped the Giraffe Print with the Atelier ink and then sponged some around the background stamp to make it a little darker. 
I watercolored the giraffe of the Why Fit in set with the Atelier ink also.

TJ Inspiration: Distressed Foil with no Heat -- and a kit, too!

I had this simple technique rolling around in my head this week, and it was time to commit that idea to pictures. I love how it turned out!
Distressed Foil Paw Prints

Today we are using a Stencil, Therm O Web Transfer Gel Duo and Heat Transfer Foil with a Big Shot (no heat!) to create a shiny distressed effect. I like how it turned out so much that I created two little kits for you so that you can make these fun cards, too!  

Before I show you the kits, I realize that not everyone has a cat or dog, so the kit may not be good for all of you. To compensate for this, you can take 25% off ALL foils in the foil category until June 8th by using the code FOIL25 as a coupon code (retail sales only, please!).

So here are the kits that are dog and cat themed:

Before I get to the video, here are the cards from the kits:

Here is the video showing how the cards were made:

I hope you have as much fun with this technique as I did!
I hope you are a little inkspired by today's issue. See you next week!

Black Cat and Tulips

Hi there!

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog, and I wanted to share a few cards using stamps from the May 2020 Technique Junkies release. Today, I'm stamping with 'Tulip with Text', Inside Out Old FartFive Fab Phrases, and 'A Little Black Cat' from the May 2020 release. I've also used 'Forget Me Nots'.

Here are my cards:

The sentiment (from the Five Fab Phrases set), was stamped on patterned paper with Versafine black ink, and that panel was adhered to a pink card base.  The black cat was stamped on white cardstock, fussy cut, and adhered with dimensional foam. That's it!

For this card, I chose a blue card base, and a black mat.  I then stamped the background (Forget me Nots) with a pale gray ink, and colored with Copic markers.  I added a strip of black trim and blue glitter to give the cat a place to sit. Then the cat was stamped, fussy cut, and adhered to the card with dimensional foam.

For this card, the Tulip with Text was stamped on Kraft Cardstock, and adhered to a pink base.
I used some pink scrap, and a scrap of polka dot for the sentiment (from the Inside Out Old Fart Set). The sentiment panel was attached with dimensional foam.

This time, I stamped on a blue patterned paper, and the sentiment was created the same way as the above card.

These were easy to create - I hope you'll try them yourself!

Smile...While You Still Have Teeth!

I've been playing around with some of the new releases for May. What fun! This combination is the perfect thing to bring a little humor to your life.

I am loving this little old man! The expression on his face is priceless! The two stamps I used for this card are:

OLD MAN (SD1023)
The card was so simple to make. I started with an A2 card base in white. I added a black piece of cardstock cut to 5.25" x 4". I stamped the sentiment on a white panel and trimmed it down. I stamped the Old Man, colored him with Polychromos pencils, and fussy-cut the image. Using foam adhesive, I popped him on top of the sentiment banner. Card done! Easy Peasy! I'm loving the combination of this image and sentiment! What do you think?

Just be Sweet!

I  used Tulip with Text and words from Five Fab Phrases.  This is a great set.    I think you can make more than five phrases from this set!

Here are the phrases I came up with from this set.  Can you come up with more?
Just be sweet
Just Smile
Just Enjoy
Just Hello
Just be happy
Just dream
Simply smile
Simply dream
Simply be happy
You make me dream
You make me happy
You make me smile.

I stamped the image three times.  I sprayed the background with Ocean Depth Shimmering Bliss.   Then I painted the second image of just the tulip  with Shimmering Bliss.   I used a green for the stem and leaves.  And I used a red for the tulip it self.  But you could use purple, yellow, pink, dark blue, and a mixture of these same colors. I fussy cut the entire tulips out and popped it up.  Then I painted and cut out just the third tulip and popped it up again.  I added a tiny red bow at the base of the tulip.   

The words were  stamped and heat embossed and cut out, layered, and mounted.  

Save some moolah by inserting the code TJ10Judy  in the coupon box when you  check out.  YOu will save 10% when you check out.

Have a marvelous day and I hope you and your family are well.   I hope you have some time to get inky!!

Extraordinary Wildflowers

Hi Junkies!  It's Holly posting today, and I felt like making a landscape type of card.  I started by brushing various colors (greens, yellow, oranges, red, purple) of ink onto some white cardstock with the Ink Blending Brushes.  Then I stamped the Growing Wild stamp with black ink right onto my inky background.  Lastly, I stamped the You Are Extraordinary with the same black ink onto some white cardstock, cut it out, and adhered it to the wildflower scene.  I'm in love with this card as these are the kind I like to make, full of color with silhouettes of nature.  :-)
