Comfort of God

Hello fellow Technique Junkies.  It's Beth Norman here with a sympathy card for you.  I used the lovely With Sympathy set of 5 stamps from July's release, so this stamp is hot off the press.

This is the first card I made in my new apartment.  Even with all the packing, move and unpacking, I managed to post weekly, much to my surprise.

Do you recognize this gorgeous flower?  It comes from the Flourished Floral stamp.  You may recall that I used this image for this card.  After colouring 16 Flourished Floral stamped images for a custom order, I had withdrawals and just had to colour up this flower again, but this time I fussy cut the flower from the image you see below.

S627 Flourished Floral

Have a great week.  I hope I inspired you. 

Bee Strong

Good morning Junkies!  I've got a couple of really quick and easy projects for you today.

For this Fat Book page, I first sprayed a 4x4 piece of watercolor paper with Art Anthology Sandcastle Colorations.  I then stenciled with gold embossing paste and the Art Anthology Beehive Stencil.  Next, I stamped Botanical Bee (one of the new July Releases) onto a piece of multi-media paper, colored it with Art Anthology Lemon Tart Velvet and Splashed Sorbet and then fussy-cut it out.  The sentiment is included in the stamp set and was stamped on the same multi-media paper as the bee and given a spray of Art Anthology Glorious.  Lastly, I embossed the edges with Scattered Straw embossing powder and then glued down some microbeads (I wish you cold see the sparkle).

Here's a really easy but nice ATC.  Spray an ATC card with Art Anthology Heart Colorations.  Next, stamp Stargazers with black ink, going over the black areas with a Pitt Pen if you don't think the black is dark enough.  Instant flower color!  The sentiment is Seeds of Today and was stamped on a piece of multi-media paper and given a light spritz of heart which was immediately blotted so it would be very light.  Both Stargazers and Seeds of Today are new releases for July.

Don't forget to visit the Technique Junkies store for some really great stamps!

That's it for today.  Thank you for stopping by.

Until later......................
