Technique Junkies Blog Hop!

We are ringing in the New Year with a Blog Hop for the January Technique Junkies  new release.  The fabulous Technique Junkie Design Team  will provide an amazing  selection of inspiration for your perusal.

Pat is again offering 15% off all January Release Stamps for one week!  In addition to new stamps, Technique Junkies has great art supplies like stencils, art anthology colorations, velvets, and sorbets – which are great dimensional mediums perfect for those who like to play with ink.

My first card uses the “Distressed Stain Dip” from the Simple & Easy Inking CD for the background.  The stains used were Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed. The focal image is “Happy Valentines Day #SD651” which I embossed in white and fussy cut.  I created a small shaker and used a Simon Says Stamp stitched die for the background panel.


My second card uses the ““Stained Embossing Technique from the Simple & Easy Inking Techniques CD” using Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass and put through the We R Memory Keepers embossing folder. For my focal image I used “Marilyn SD #655” which I colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Markers and added “Vegas Gold Sorbet” for her hair.  My sentiment is “Better Things SDX063” white heat embossed.


My next card features the hip new stamp called, “Blue Jeans #S643.”  I created the texture using “Frosted Distress Stencil from the Sensational Stencil CD” with the “Cracked Stencil by Art Anthology” and Hero Arts Stone Wash and Wet Cement inks.  The “frosted” element was silver perfect pearls mixed with water and stamped through the stencil.  I used the “Better Things SDX063” sentiment which was white heat embossed.


My final project uses the “Bookworms #SS054” stamp to create a corner bookmark perfect for a handmade gift.  I also used “Faint Scratches #S518” and “Here We Go In Circles #SS030.”


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.
