Day 28 of Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas


I've been having fun with the 25 Days of Christmas Tags ... so today I'm combining that inspiration with the 30 Days of Christmas at Technique Junkies.




Remember, all Christmas stamps are 20% off (and you can use my discount code TJ10Stephanie for another 10% off your order).

I started with a tag inspired by this lovely tag by Tracey McNeely's Tag from Day 12.  I liked the stamped background and the contrast of the red with the neutral background.



For my reindeer background, I used Reindeer Names stamped in red on ivory cardstock. and then die cut it with a Tag Die.




The tiny sentiment is from a set called Santa Says.  Instead of gold cord, I used gold ribbon to tie a bow around the red ribbon.



For the second tag, I took my inspiration from this lovely tag from Day 11 by talented Tracey.



I stamped the smaller poinsettia from Technique Junkies Poinsettias (set of 4) three times in red ink on white cardstock. Then I detail cut each flower and attached them to the top of my tag.  Since I didn't color my blooms, I used a red tag to get similar contrast to my inspiration tag.




I added a sentiment from Technique Junkies Victorian Greetings and a few white enamel dots.

Hopefully I've inspired you to use your Technique Junkies stamps for some fun Christmas tags.

Day 25 of the 30 Days of Christmas




Hello!  Lynda Joy here, with some Christmas cheer for Day 25 of the Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas.  

My card today features the Perfect Blend SD9062 stamp....

I added some chalk pastel with a makeup cotton ball to the background, and some shimmer in and around the mug with watered down Perfect Pearls.

I hope you are enjoying our 30 Days of Christmas feature here on the TJ blog, and have found some inspiration for making your holiday cards.

Day 21 of Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas



Oh my gosh! Where has the time gone? Can you believe it's already Day 21 of the 30 Days? The holidays are fast approaching and I have a really fun card to share with you today that might just give you an idea for all those cards you're wanting to make. And the best news is that all the Christmas stamps are on sale (20% off!) until November 22nd! And you can save an additional 10% on any purchase by using the code "TJ10Ro" at checkout! Merry! Merry!



Ok, enough rambling on....here is the card!



Looks simple, right? It is!!! VERY simple! But it packs a little extra wow...




Isn't that absolutely fun? I just can't get enough of that adorable snowman! I have made so many cards with him and I don't see that changing any time soon!  This card came together so quickly and easily. Here is what I did:

  1. Create an A2 card base from white CS.
  2. I used an embossing die and created a faux-stitched frame on a piece of kraft CS, which I then trimmed down slightly smaller than the card base.
  3. Using the stamp set, Let's Chill, I stamped the sentiment in black ink.
  4. On white CS, I stamped the adorable Snowman in black ink and colored him in with markers.
  5. I trimmed him out and used an Action Wobble to attach him to the card.
That' it! Five very simple steps to create a card that just makes you want to smile.  Here are the two sets I used:

Let's Chill
Snowman

I sure hope today's card brought you a little joy. Stay tuned for more great cards for the 30 Days of Christmas!

Til next time,
Keepin' it inky!

Day 20 of the Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas

 
Here we are already at Day 20 of the 30 Days of Christmas Event.


There have been some great cards shared by the Design Team, which I am sure hold a lot of inspiration.

I went with the Snowman for my card, and that largely had to do with the loads of snow we have received in my neck of the woods, and Snowman are good any time.
I dressed my Snowman in tones of Purple - kind of a Regal Snowman he is. For some added glam I splattered with Midas Aqua Shimmering Pen, and I love the look. 
In the background is A Colorful Life Design Stencil called Faded Poinsettia. Pat normally has these stencils in stock, but I noticed it is not today. I am sure she would be happy to get it for you however.

The Snowman is affixed using foam squares and the sentiment is stamped in a deep purple ink.

Remember, this event goes on until November 22nd with 20% off all stamps in the Christmas category in the store.

And, for an additional 10% off your purchase, use my discount code.


Thank you for visiting and enjoy your day!

Day 19 of the Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas



Today is the 19th Day of the Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas!  I hope you are becoming inspired.

I used Angel Choir and All is Calm stamps for this card.  The angel choir was heat embossed with detail black embossing powder.   I water colored the angels. The verse was heat embossed on a small scrap of paper and adhered to some glitter paper.

Please remember that all stamps in the Christmas category are automatically 20% off through November 22.  And you can stack my personal coupon TJ10Judy and get another 10% off of your entire order -- including the Christmas stamps!


Have a terrific day and get inky!

Day 18 of the Technique Junkies 30 Days of Christmas



Hi Junkies, it's Holly posting today!  Can you believe it's Day 18 of our 30 Days of Christmas event?  

All of the stamps in the Christmas Category on the Technique Junkies website are 20% off from today, October 24, 2019, through Friday November 22. To celebrate, the Technique Junkies Design Team will be posting Christmas and Holiday cards every day to ignite your creative muse.

You can start shopping now, HERE.

For my card today, I have used the gorgeous new Christmas Rose stamp as well as the Victorian Greetings sentiment set.  I stamped these onto Fabriano Artistico cold press watercolor paper with a gray archival ink.  The flower and leaves are watercolored with Daniel Smith watercolor paints, and I painted a very faint brown watercolor wash for the background around the flower.  To make the little stamens pop out, I painted over those with a yellow acrylic paint.
