Technique Junkies Blog Hop!
Posted by urrn4u
Is it November already? Unbelievable! We are well on our way to the holidays! I sure hope you are enjoying the 30 Days of Christmas on the Technique Junkie Design Team’s site.
I had the opportunity to meet with Pat at the Hampton Roads show this past month and was able to pick up some great Art Anthology Products. I have to admit I am IN LOVE with these products and am anxious to add more to my collection.
As usual, Pat has come up with some great new stamps for this release and I know you are going to love them. Pat is offering 15% off all November Release Stamps for one week! WooHoo!
My first card features the “Brick Wall #S646,” which was heat embossed and filled in with “Black Leather Jacket Sorbet” giving the wall fabulous texture! I then added additional color to the wall in Teracotta-Velvet, Pumpkin Spice-Sorbet, and Kenyan Copper-Sorbet. I then stamped “Love My Shoes #SD653” over a brayered background in matching colors using Marvy Metallitcs . I finished off with the sentiment “Celebrate in Style #SDX062” and again edged with more Black Leather Sorbet.

My second card uses the Stained Resist Technique from the “Artistic Effects CD.” I began by stamping “Celestial Dangles #S656” in Versamark then embossing with Stampendous in Aged Gold Enamel. To add color to the dangling stars, I used Distress Stain in Brushed Pewter. My sentiment “To The Moon #SD611” was embossed with gold on Bazzill heavy vellum and wrapped around the card.
My final card uses the same “Stained Resist Technique” from the Artistic Effects CD. I white heat embossed the “Celestial Dangles SD 656” then applied Dusty Concord and Stormy Sky Distress Inks to the stars and dangles. My sentiment is a very versatile stamp called, “Merry Christmas 2 #SDX065” which is stamped on vellum with eggplant powder (hard to see it’s purple), applied on silver glitter paper and wrapped around to avoid seeing the adhesive. I finished with some silver and gold and sequins.
Now, that I’ve shown you what I have to offer, I don’t want you to miss any of the other design teams creativity so I encourage you to start hopping at the Technique Junkies Design Team Blog.
