THOUGHTS OF YOU BRING ME JOY

Hey Junkies!  

I am in love with the Here We Go Round in Circles stamp set...so I can't stop using it. For this card I combined it with Lollipop Flowers and used a sentiment from Sentimental Sayings.  



After stamping I used some acrylic paint I'd sprayed with water to dilute it a bit and splattered it across the panel for additional dimention and detail.  

Such an easy card to create and who doesn't like easy?  

I hope you've found some inspiration here.  

So, that's it for me today.  I hope you find some inspiration and get your craft on....it's fun there!

TJ Inkspirations - Glittering Sea Tutle with video

Hi all!  Pat here with another video.

I just can't stop playing with the Nuvo Glitter Markers!  After developing a Make and Take for a tradeshow for this summer, I decided to do a quick video showing how the ease of the markers when used Direct-to-Stamp.  Although I had done this in "still" photos several weeks in this email, sometimes it is nice to watch it in motion.

Here is the video:

I hope you are a little inkspired by today's issue. See you next week!

God bless America


Hello friends, Giovana here today, bringing you a very American card. When I saw these banners I knew I needed them for my 4th of July cards, this is one of a set I am making. Super easy and mail friendly.

Here are the details:
  • Start cutting a piece of watercolor paper (here size 3.75" x 5"), add a little bit of Ultramarine Blue Color Burst and then mist the paper to release the colors.
  •  On a piece of watercolor paper, stamp the banner from "Pennant Set #4" in red and blue ink.
  •  After your blue watercolor piece has dried, cut a small piece of vellum and stitch it to the panel.
  •  Fussy cut the banners and add blue twine to connect them together. Stamp the "God bless America Pennant" sentiment on a piece of red cardstock, add thin gold adhesive tape and add it to card with foam adhesive. Add the panel to a A2 cad base.

Here is the card standing up. Very simple and elegant.

Hope you like it and give it a try. Remember you can buy these stamps using my code TJ10Giovana for a 10% off of you purchase!!

Have a fantastic day!!

Fine Frames Three Ways

Hello.  Beth Norman here with a show stopper of a technique.  While looking through all my issues of the Technique Junkie Newsletter I came across a technique that intrigued me and one in which I've never tried before.  It is called Fine Frames and is from the August 2013 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter which you can find here.  I liked the technique so much that I created three cards using this technique.  Each card was coloured with Prismacolor pencil crayons and odorless mineral spirits.
My first card uses Darling Blooms.  The cardstock is SU's Tempting Turquoise.
 My next card uses a favourite of mine called Flowers and Feathers Collage.  My matt is SU's Crushed Curry.
Finally I used Dragonfly Collage.  My matt comes from Paper-Garden.ca and my designer paper is from Stampn' Up!

Notice I didn't use any sentiments on my cards?  I thought the eye should focus on the highlighted image and not be distracted by a sentiment.

Mightier than Waves


Today I used the newly released Technique Junkies Let your Light Shine stamp http://techniquejunkies.com/let-your-light-shine/   to create my card.  used one of the  wonderful  A Colorful Life stencils - http://techniquejunkies.com/search.php?search_query=A+colorful+life+stencils  -  along with the gold Nuvo Mouse - http://techniquejunkies.com/nuvo-products/  to create the background for the focal image.
\
I  used the Twinkling H2Os to paint the focal image.  I wanted to use a different verse than the verse that is a part of this stamp. So I was very careful to not get any Memento ink on the verse.  However, the "S" that is a part of the verse is also a part of the lighthouse and I had to decide how I was going to treat that "S."  I painted it gold and added a gold ribbon bow.

Then I stamped the verse from the Psalms of the Seat set - http://techniquejunkies.com/psalms-of-the-sea-set-of-6/ with Versafine black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

A burlap ribbon over layed with the matching ribbon finish my card.

Please remember that you can get a 10% discount by using the code TJ10Judy on your order.  Distress Oxide inks excluded from this discount as they are already discounted.

Have a great day and get inky!
