Hello fellow Technique Junkie Friends. Here at Technique Junkies the Design Team is bringing you an entire Month of Christmas Cards using the fabulous Technique Junkies collection. What’s even more exciting is that all the Christmas stamps are %20 percent off through October 31st!
Today I have a great technique from the Artistic Effects CD called, “Faux Metal Gelato.” I began by heat embossing the “Christmas Dove” with silver embossing powder on black paper. On a second sheet of black paper I embossed the snowflake background using a Sizzix folder. I then applied the gelato technique and fussy cut the dove, popping him up on the background. The “Merry Christmas 2” sentiment is stamped in archival ink on silver card stock. For some sparkle, I added silver glitter paper on a black card stock base. I’m thrilled with how this came out!
I hope you’ll join us over at the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog for more Christmas ideas going on through November 15th – but don’t delay purchasing your stamps because those are only on sale through October 31st at the Technique Junkies store.
By for now,
The Crafty Nurse
It’s the third Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built photo inspiration challenge. For October what else could we possible use but a GORGEOUS fall landscape of trees!
As with all our challenges, let the photo be your guide and use your creativity to inspire you. You have until Tuesday, October 27th to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions. If you use a Repeat Impressions stamp, you’ll get an extra entry!
Here’s the inspiration chosen by our Rock Stars:
For my card I’ve used Repeat Impressions stamps, “Large Pine Tree 2719-K and Small Pine Tree 2710-D “ and the sentiment, “Love Much 3110-F”. To create the somewhat “hazy” picture, I used distress inks sprayed with water.
