TJ Inkspiration: Easy Ink Blending and Layering (and the sale continues)

We are living in uncertain times.  So many of us are at home, either working or just finding ways to persevere through it all. And still others are braving the potential ravages of COVID19 as essential workers (superheros!).

Obviously, rubber stamping is not an essential business. (At least not to anyone outside the crafting community). Still, many of us are trying to stay in business during these unsure times. Technique Junkies will be fine throughout this rough stretch...but keep all the small businesses you know in mind throughout this crisis. Many are trying to continue to pay key employees as long as possible.

On a more positive note, Just a reminder that our 25% off sale is continuing through 3-29-20. Simply use the code SAVE25 at checkout. It will work on EVERYTHING in stock in the Technique Junkies Store (retail orders only).

What to do in these uncertain times? Get crafty! I am trying to craft, even just a little bit, every day, and I hope you will too. It IS therapy, isn't it? I will be posting all kinds of work to my personal blog and to the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog throughout the next several weeks. Let us help keep YOU sane!

To kick off, here is a quick and fun tutorial for you. It just uses blending brushes, ink, a stencil and a little spray for a fun background. Here is the video:

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

Good Stories

It's my day to post here on the Technique Junkies Design blog, and I wanted to share a cute card using 'Bad Decisions' from the March new releases.  The background was created using the K-Flip Technique from the October-November 2014 Technique Junkies Tutorial.  The image/sentiment was stamped with the K-Pad, and stamped again on a piece of cardstock covered with Washi Tape strips. I fussy cut the dress and adhered it to the focal panel. A gemstone finished off the focal panel.  A couple of Washi Tape strips were added to each side of the K-Flip panel, and the card was assembled.

This was so easy to create! Hope you will give it a try!

Now, be sure to head over to the Technique Junkies store and check out the incredible new stamps this month! 

Thanks for stopping by,
