K-Flip Technique by Judy Jackson

Did you read my last post?  Did you see where I was able to get some new Technique Junkie stamps at the Heirloom Rubber Stamp show?  Well I am using more  new stamp today.    All of the stamps on these three cards are from the new Technique Junkie stamps I now have in my collection!

I used Smooch paints to add some highlights to the silhouette image in the top card.  I used Copic markers to color the vintage4 car in the second image.

You will note I am sure that  hmmm the blue card doesn't look flipped but it is. I never realized until I created this card that the exact same colors are both sides of the Blue Frost K-pad are almost exactly the same.  So when you flip it -- hmm there isn't much difference!  But they really are flipped.

The  card with the dots also uses Goose Bumps before I brayered color on the card stock.

Have you looked at the new stamps on the Technique Junkie Stamps website?  If not -- here you go --  .  Did you see the new Palettini Stamps? Browse around and have a good look as there are some beautiful stamps there!

Have an inky day!

Try That Technique - Embossed Stains

Hi Junkies, Tricia here with this weeks technique of the week, Embossed Stains.

These will definitely be going in the Christmas Card pile.

Mica Glaze for your friend

Have you had a go at the micro glaze embossing technique
from the Aug/Sept 2013 newsletter?
This technique makes such wonderful backgrounds
and is perfect for this time of the year.

I made this male card with Tim Holtz stamps
and a mustache embossing folder.

Have a creative day!

Transitional Ombre by Judy Jackson

I LOVE going to rubber stamp conventions because I can walk around and see new stuff -- new tools, new art media, new stamps, new papers, new embellishments; get new ideas, and meet up with old friends. This past weekend Heirloom  held a stamp convention in my own town, York, PA.  And  Technique Junkie Stamps/Newsletter had a booth!  As a member of the TJ design team I knew Pat had new stamp designs, I knew she had BIG plans for Technique Junkie stamps, but I also knew she has had a horrendous summer so I wasn't sure how many NEW stamps she would have.

I created this card using the Transitional Ombre technique from the current newsletter. And I used two new stamps from the Technique Junkie stamps line!  Aren't they wonderful?

I am not sure these are up on the TJ stamps website but here are the details you need in order to order these stamps.  Hot Rod -  PD003 and Mae West Sentiments - PS004. 

What will you do to get creative with stamps and paper today?

Transitional Ombre

Hi again, Jackie K here with an example of the Transitional Ombre technique.
I know I have said this before but the uses for this technique are endless. Combine any punch with a suitable stamp and you have a card. Also, consider using your border die cuts or even your Cricut to create the effect you get with your punches.
The stamp is from Sweet&Sassy.
Have a wonderful week!

Sensational Stencils

I absolutely love the new cd with all the 
stencil technique ideas! 
Have you had a look at all the tutorials:
One of my favourite tutorials is the 
Gelatos Wipe technique.

I creatied this card for the  October
breastcancer awareness.
The background is made with a flower stencil
from the Crafter's Workshop.
And I can give you a tip: if you don't have
any gelatos,you can also use your watercolor crayons
for this technique, works fine too!

Creative greetings!
