Holly Brown: Paper Piecing Flower Girl

Hi folks, it's Holly posting today.  One of my favorite TJ techniques is Paper Piecing, and I love using it when I have a cute line art stamped image.  On my card today, I've paper pieced the girl's dress, the flower, and her headband with the same yellow patterned paper that I used at the bottom of the card.  It's a fun way to add a little oomph to a stamped image.

Watercolor Reinkers Technique with Technique Junkie Stamps

I just love so many of the stamps from the Technique Junkie stamp line.  And I have been enjoying looking at the stamps I now have and trying to revisit some older techniques from the Technique Junkie newsletter.  This one features the Watercolor Reinkers Technique from the February 2012 newsletter.

I used a piece of designer paper and then layered the two stamped pieces using the Watercolor Reinker technique on the base card.  I love how technique pulls the two stamped images together.

This would be  a fun birthday, thinking of you, or get well card.

I hope you have a crafty day!

Fancy Petals

Hello again everyone, Jackie K back again with the Fancy Petals Technique.

These cards sure come together fast once you make the flowers. There are so many options to use when making the flowers. Different papers, different flowers, and the punch possibilities are endless. I regret that I used this sentiment stamp because I don't know who makes it. Once again, I have had some stamps for over 20 years, many unmounted. That was long before I realized I should keep track of that information. If anyone knows I would really appreciate a shout out! 
Give this a try and remember to post to the yahoo group so we can all enjoy the fruits of your creative labor.
See you back here soon!

Brayered Rub-ons

Hello TJ Friends~ Kathie McGuire here to share a card I made using the Brayered Rub-ons technique from the current newsletter. Fast and fun, and a whole new way of using rub-ons! The top portion of the card is silver cardstock run through a Cuttlebug folder, and the medallion piece is a Spellbinders die cut. I used a metal sheet from Add a Little Dazzle, and then after I cut and embossed it, I sanded the black off with a sanding block. Thank you for taking the time to stop by! ~Kathie

Offset Die Cuts

Hello there.  This week's Technique of the Week is Offset Die Cuts from the February issue.  It is a fun technique and I'm sure you are seeing lots of these showing up already on our Yahoo group.  It seems to be a popular technique for us Junkies.

My center flower stamp is from Stampn' Up! and my sentiment is from Mark's Finest Papers, one of our sponsors.

Stay warm.  I know it's been cold all around Canada and the United States.

Stayed tuned for more Offset Die Cuts from the design team.  I hope you are inspired to try this technique if you haven't done so already.

Holly Brown: Brayered Rubons Cowboy

Hi Junkies!  It's Holly posting today, and I'm using the Technique of the Week today.  This week's TOTW is Brayered Rub-ons from the Feb/March 2014 issue.  I found some old flower rub-ons and used those for my background piece today.  The stamped image is from one of our wonderful vendors, About Art Accents/Art Neko.  I colored it with my new Inktense pencils - lots of fun!

I hope you try out this Brayered Rub-ons technique.  It's really easy and such a fun new look for backgrounds.  :-)

Antique Glimmers Card - A Technique Junkies Stamp by Judy Jackson

One of my all time favorite techniques from the Technique Junkie newsletter is  Antique Glimmers from the December 2009 issue.  All of the stamps on this card are from the line of stamps offered by Technique Junkie Stamps, formerly known as Stamp Camp.  I used a Copic marker to color the moon peeking through the clouds at night.  The background tamp was used without an acrylic block, but curved in my hand -- stamping different areas of the stamp at different angles to create that look. 

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Take care everyone. If you are in the colder climates stay safe and warm. On Friday we are expected to reach 90 degrees. That's totally nuts even for the desert southwest. It is February.

Shimmer Shadows

Good Afternoon Junkies, Tricia here.

Hope you are all staying dry and warm.  We are experiencing a blizzard here in New England.  This is not a bad thing as I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the snow.  My husband and I are avid snowmobilers and say BRING IT ON!  Also, got to leave work early which is always a good thing.

Today I am bringing you the Try That Technique for this week, Shimmer Shadows.  This is a pretty cool technique and as usual, really easy.

I cut the heart border and the Love U heart in the middle with  my Silhouette Cameo.

Won't you join us and play along? 
Hope you all have a crafty day!

Dryer Sheet Stamping

Hello friends.  It's Beth Norman here with a Dryer Sheet Stamping card from the February issue.  It is such a fun technique.  One dryer sheet goes a long way so you can create, create, create.

How is the weather where you are?  Wow, this polar vortex they talk about has really hit everyone.  I'm disappointed that our groundhog saw it's shadow because there is six more weeks of this long winter.

Happy Stamping.
